Military Review

Does Europe create its own army against the USA?

17
The chairman of the annual Munich International Security Conference, Wolfgang Ischinger, warned of the dangers of a new military confrontation between major world powers. As the politician noted, the growing mistrust in Moscow and Washington is already leading to local conflicts, but it is unlikely that we can restrict ourselves to them.


By the opening of the conference, Ischinger presented a report entitled "To the edge of the abyss and back." The expert touched upon the problems of the Korean Peninsula, the confrontation between China, the USA and Russia, the Syrian conflict, etc.

He did not bypass the party and his native Europe. In a special "European Defense Report," the politician spoke about the plans of the EU to create its own unified army. This idea is promoted by two key countries in the region - Germany and France. The latter, by the way, is going to return the mandatory call-up for military service.

According to Ischinger, “the sabotage of the world order by the Americans” became the main reason for the European Union to carry out such plans.

      They (the EU) are partly to blame. They inflated the “Russian threat” with the help of the Balts and Poles because of Georgia and Ukraine. The hegemon immediately decided to put on the counter 2% of GDP, stabbed Pacific integration and began to demand preferences in trade (for example, those energy carriers and SP-2). Malacholny Europeans have come to their senses at last - if they only manage to get out from under the hegemon (American base and weapons) or not !? hi

        First you need to remove the military bases of Amers from their territory and force the Yankees to take their B61-12 from Germany "in the ass" ... Sign the relevant Agreements on cooperation in various fields with us ... Then we can try to get out from under the hegemonic heels.
        But corrupt comprador politicians will not allow this ...
        It’s time for Amam to present an account in Hamburg ... (so that it would be on the Hamburg account!) Otherwise - good luck! bully

        inflated the States. They in their country "wedge" on it: "It is very sad that the FBI missed all the numerous signals sent by a shooter from Florida. This is unacceptable. They spend too much time trying to prove a Russian conspiracy with the Trump campaign - there is no conspiracy. Return to your main job so we can be proud of you!"- Donald Trump.
        The victims of the attack were 17 people, among the dead were both students and teachers. The shooter himself was detained, later he pleaded guilty and he was formally charged. A few days later, the FBI admitted “defeat” due to the fact that they did not take the necessary actions against the shooter, although before the attack law enforcement officers received messages suspicious of a young man.

    The more military conflicts in the world, the calmer the striped ones feel. "The worse everyone, the better for us." - policy of mattress.

    Since the advent of Trump to power and his "friendly" policy towards his allies, in which they do not require anything but money and stupid submission, the "United States of Europe" simply has no other way. They need to contrast the power of the United States.

    As for the Euroarmony, this is not news: in the 70s, reports appeared in our media about some kind of Euroformation. Relatively recently, there was a publication on this topic on our site.
    Let’s calmly think without any troubles and ideological cliches: is Euroarmy possible?
    If you forget all the tantrums, and remember the story: the frogmen have a long-standing “sympathy” for the Bosch in the subconscious, and the “Tommy”, in turn, somewhere in the subconscious “love” the frogmen, and the pasta ... Create an Eurobrigade or Eurocorps, and who will command: so that the paddling man admire the Bosch commander? A German would adore the commander of the paddling pool. Do not tell my footcloths! By the way, I don’t know why S.K. Portyanka “drove” out of the army? I knew many men who wore footcloths all their lives, my father made footcloths from an old blanket, and a neighbor sewed from flannel vests

      This is an attribute of the boots ... And now, the boots have been replaced with boots and other "wheels" -shoes. There footcloths simply "do not climb" ... the ends get out! Yeah

    As soon as Europe begins to move away from US influence, Washington will immediately unleash a small conflict. The Europeans will go meat and we understand the matter. And these will be in chocolate. Although this is not expected in the near future. Children of high-ranking officials of the Russian Federation are on permanent residence in the US and the EU. Already their offspring, they will not let the team bomb. It turns out two options. Either they decided to surrender right away without a fight, or no NATO really threatens Russia.

    As an option, the division of the military money pie: the Euroarmy will not smash American weapons, but locally produced ones. Arms barons and bureaucrats will earn good money.

    Does Europe create its own army against the USA?

    Strange (though not the first time) topic of the article .....
    The idea of ​​creating a European army appeared a long time ago. Winston Churchill was the first in Europe after the end of World War II at the session of the Council of Europe Assembly in Strasbourg on 11 on August 1950. He proposed the creation of a "European army subject to the democracy of Europe", which would include German military units. Such an army was, in his plan, to be a coalition of national forces with a centralized supply and standardized weapons, not subordinate to supranational control bodies. The Assembly approved this project (89 votes in favor, 5 against and 27 abstained) The European Union itself began to create military structures after the Maastricht Treaty, signed on February 7 on February 1992, first designated the Union’s responsibility in the area of ​​Common Foreign Policy and Security Policy (CFSP) (Common Foreign and Security Policy, CFSP). In May 1992 of the year was founded and in October 1993 of the year the Eurocorps began to function (reached full operational readiness in the 1995 year). Its headquarters is located in Strasbourg (France) and has about 1000 troops. The participating countries of the corps are Belgium, Germany, Spain, Luxembourg and France. Associated nations are Greece, Italy, Poland and Turkey (previously also included Austria (2002-2011 years), Canada (2003-2007 years) and Finland (2002-2006 years). The only military unit permanently under the command of the European Corps , became the Franco-German brigade formed in 1989 (5000 personnel) with headquarters in Mülheim (Germany). The corps participated in peacekeeping missions in Kosovo (2000 year) and Afghanistan (2004-2005 years).


    Meanwhile ....
    Great Britain is sharply opposed to the attempt to create a single army of the European Union - the idea that France and Germany uphold. “The Americans are confident that a single army will increase EU independence from the United States. They cannot allow this. ”
