French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated calls for a European Union army, this time saying that it is needed to protect the bloc from China, Russia, and even the United States.
The progressive leader, a proponent of greater EU federalisation which will result in the reduction in sovereignty for European nations, told Europe 1 Monday night that the bloc needs a real European army. We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America, Macron said, according to Agence France-Presse.
We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army, he said while on a tour of the former Western Front in Verdun, northeast France, to commemorate the centenary of World War One a war in which some 116,000 Americans lost their lives defending Europe, including at the Second Battle of the Somme in 1918 which resulted in an Allied battle victory at the cost of 15,034 United States, and 5,600 British Empire lives.

In August, Macron called for defence divergence from the United States, then including current French foe Russia as those the centrist premier counted as possible European defence partners.

LOL. The US is the only reason this guy isn’t speaking German right now.
Good, they should have their own army...save us some money
I guess he isn’t a student of history.
The only reason he’s not speaking German RIGHT NOW IS BECAUSE OF US...................
The first glaring indication that this Macron guy is not normal is that he married a woman who could have been his mother. The second is that this leftist idiot thinks the U.S. would attack France. He actually lumped the U.S. in the same group as China and Russia. Yeah sure, jerk, we have a steady history of moving troops into other countries and making war on them to take over their country.
Finally. Maybe we can pull out and stop protecting their butts. They can take care of themselves.
Sure about time you EU deadbeats started carrying your own weight. After 70 years the US has better thing to do with its treasure then continue to babysit Europe.
What a macaroon. Half of his recruits will be named Mohammed.
On the eve of WWI centenary events in Paris no less!
And we are NATO allies with Western Europe why? Obviously the resources they will not commit to NATO to defend themselves they want to commit to building an army to defend themselves against the very nation defending them.
The new world order people are getting creepy.
“he married a woman who could have been his mother”
Yeah, and Trump married a woman who could be his daughter.
He’d rather speak Arabic.
If it wasn’t for you pompous screw-up, America would never have had one army in Europe.
We were only there to keep your cap away from us.
How do such ignorant illiterates get elevated to presidency? Is this Obama’s cousin bent on the destruction of his own people?
Merkle ===> Merkel
/sorry, happy typing fingers
While I understand your sentiment, that statement is quite false. If you’d said north Americans, you’d be more accurate.
Either way, this guy is a tard of the highest degree and so out of touch with reality. It’s amazing there still is a France. It’s a shame really.
Any pan-European army will end up attacking Europeans.
Probably starting with Hungary and Poland.
My college advisor, who immigrated from Austria after the war, once told me that Austria invented colonialism.
I said “Really! What did they colonize?”
And he chuckled and said “Other European Countries!”
What a dolt.
The sentiment to have a European army to defend European interests is great. Europe *should* be able to defend itself.
But claiming that the US is as much a danger to world peace as Russia and China? Seriously? When did the US last send troops to invade and occupy another country when that country did not first attack us? Have we been talking about plans to do that? Is there any reason to think we would suddenly do such a thing? Nope, I didn’t think so.
