Balts do not want a single EU army

British Edition The Times writes that not all representatives of the EU countries speak out in support of the initiative of the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker to create a supranational unified European army. Recall that some of these formations (talking about border and coast guard) will begin to fulfill their duties in the near future.

Balts do not want a single EU army

It turns out that critics of Juncker's initiative live mostly on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Representatives of Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania declare that the initiative of the President of the European Commission, to put it mildly, is not enthusiastic. The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Edgar Rinkevich, said that he sees no value in the single army of the European Union when there are armies in the EU countries plus a NATO bloc.

Mr. Juncker’s plan is skeptical, as he will definitely compete with NATO, and this is at a time when the Baltic countries need an increase in the military presence of the alliance.

In those countries at the legislative level, which contain articles on military neutrality (Finland, Sweden, and others) declare their fears that the “single Juncker army” may become a kind of tool for drawing representatives of the armed forces of these states into those or other international conflicts.

Recall that the size of the EU border guard and coast guard units at the final stage of the formation does not exceed 1,5 thousand people. Whether all EU countries are represented in these structures is not reported yet.

      The question is, why were they shaking? The EU is also in NATO. Want to increase the contingent, so it will increase due to the single army of the EU. Probably the Balts smelled another Reich.

        laughing The Balts want to get rid of the army. They urgently need to create a "Committee of Soldiers' Mothers."

            Truly so!

            The army of the gay union for mattresses is an extremely disadvantageous structure. In NATO, they are the main commanders, and here will be my cousin wattle fence. They don’t need it? Here are the Baltic mongrels and received orders to once again drift.
            Geyropa is trying to make such languid attempts to get out of the dictates of mattress, or rather not even to implement, but to demonstrate. As for the Finns and Swedes, yes, here their position is clear - it is not known where the goysoyuz will lead them - that is to the east, that to the west they are very hots ... I perfectly understand these.

            In all this circus, there is only one thing that pleases me a little - the number of signals indicating the unreliability and the imminent collapse or deep reorganization of the gay union is becoming more and more. I am glad because Russia does not need such a gay union as it is now. Separately with Germany, France, and even more so with Bulgaria or some Denmark there, it will be much easier for us to negotiate than with this nest of "mattress bugs" from Brussels.

            But the owners only want them to sneak on Russia. But they themselves have neither grandmothers, nor human resources, and will not, therefore, they can only sneak from under the fence of NATO. If NATO leaves them, these bobiks will give up completely.

      Europe, realizing that it will never be able to pursue an independent and independent policy while American bases and the armed forces are located on its territory, under the pretext of creating its own army, is looking for an opportunity to minimize its mattress presence.
      Mattresses also understand this and want to maintain leverage over the European elite, using for this their faithful sixes of zheks and sprats.
      Well, these, the latter, out of zeal to curry favor with their swarthy master, will lick the whole of Europe to death, even to their own detriment. So they didn't say anything, they just "work it out".

      As for the army - they are afraid (and rightly so) that if the Franks and Germans create the Euroarmy (which I doubt or not very soon), then the Germans (and they will steer) will definitely bend the Baltic states to finance this very army.
      Now they are hobbling and have given (with joy) everything to the Americans, but they themselves, no matter what.

        This option is also possible. In general, they - sprats - by nature cowards and traitors. Everyone knows this, and by and large, no one counts with them. Dwarfs - they are dwarfs, in the sense of their state.

          Yes, the French army was stronger than the Wehrmacht in the 39th, and taking into account the British ... what And in the 41st, we had more tanks, it was also kind of stronger ... and in the 45th, some kind of Yugovian partisans decided to lightly clean the tommy bread, and would clear it if our people had not intervened, although if only we knew about the consequences, it would be completely multiplied by zero, and Madlezhka Albright would be isolated from democracy

    In the following years, Russia will “convince” all countries of the alternativeness of the “Russian World.” Whether they like it or not, all the lands in the east that previously belonged to the USSR must again belong to Russia, they are watered with our blood. As for the West, Russia is not bloodthirsty and will leave them with "deep concern". And who will arise there. In Germany, with its chancellor Merkel?, A more pragmatic government will come to power ... They are already at this stage beginning to realize that Germany is only strong with Russia.
    You know, I'm not a writer, but that's how I see Russia at this stage.
    “Vanka” is lying on the stove with a deep hangover, because yesterday I drunk I gave my neighbors boots, a sweatshirt, a sheepskin coat and a hat. It scratches “Faberge” with one hand, finger of the other hand, picks its nose, looks at the ceiling and thinks where to start. The first thought to feed the horse (to raise the military-industrial complex), as it was in his underpants, and it was frosty in the yard, but not the first time that we barefoot in the snow, in the stable, “drive away” and the crow, faithful with a senz, to thank for the faithful service.
    I went into the hut from the frost, and on the table there were "scraps" from the past revel. I went to the window and remembered, but I also gave away the allotments, while they were standing under the snow waiting for the peasant's hand.
    Spring is not around the corner, you need some kind of clothes - no one to handle. He scratched the back of his head and remembered that in the chest, from his former life, he seemed to have a hat (Air Force), and there were old ports (tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles). He patched up something, and banged something new. Well, he came to life again, the convolutions in his brain stirred. It's time to spring and about allotments with the sister of the grumpy (Germany) "tryndet". Of course, at first he would be against it, but realizing that he had put on something, Vankin nevertheless would yield. After all, she knows that it’s better to live in harmony and peace with Vanka, and how he “gets drunk” is so “bad”, don’t say a word to him, he’ll make him so deaf.
    As for the neighbor, sister of Germany, the girl of the wind-shelter of France (France), she is “weak” for men, she’s so weak at the sight of “Vanka”, she doesn’t have any urine in her knees and falls backward before him, even for the quarter, to “Vankin” approach. Along the way, Vanka will have its own gesheft for the first time.
    Something like this.

    After all, after all, the united army of the EU immediately sees the Fuhrer and parts of the SS. I would support such an initiative of Europe, if this opportunity to somehow reduce the number of NATO bases, and more specifically the US contingent, it would be even very good. Then you can talk with Europe as something sovereign and powerful geopolitical player. But until I can imagine how the Germans, for example, along with the French, or the Italians and Spaniards served together.
