Germanys defence minister has confirmed that a united EU military is becoming a reality, after her ally and Chancellor Angela Merkel backed Emmanuel Macrons call for a real European army.
Europes army is already taking shape, Ursula von der Leyen wrote in an opinion piece for Handelsblatt on Thursday.
Germany and France are the driving forces in defense, Ms von der Leyen boasted, adding that Were moving even further ahead with our close partner France after the two countries agreed to sign a new Elysèe Treaty which, amongst other efforts to, in effect, merge aspects of the two countries, includes common defense.
A common European defence force was labelled a dangerous fantasy by remain campaigners during the 2016 Brexit referendum, after Eurosceptics had warned that continued membership of the bloc would entail being pulled into an EU army.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel enthusiastically backed her French globalist ally, saying, What is really important, if we look at the developments of the past year, is that we have to work on a vision of one day creating a real, true European army, with Brussels bureaucrats expressed their delight that France and Germany were taking the lead.

And it’s initially targets will be recalcitrant EU members.
I hope the US pulls out of Europe. While I understand the thinking behind “forward positioning” our resources, I really think we need to be more isolationist. The EU can go rot. The oil in the Middle East is no longer a huge concern for the US. Let’s save money and allow Europe to worry about the trouble spots. We don’t need to.

Europe’s army. What a sick joke.
That is the first thing that came to my mind too; “THE FOURTH REICH”.
Hey - Both platoons, the ship AND the sailboat will be very useful
After the Soldiers paid maternity leave is over...
We should be more isolationist and neutral. I don’t have problems with trading with Saudi Arabia. Their human rights record is none of our business.
And its SS.
Good. Now dismantle all our European bases and bring our servicemen and women home.
Are they going to draft their Muslims into this new army? You might then call it the new Caliphate.
So Europe has 3x the population and 10x the GDP of Russia and they need OUR boots on the ground to protect them?
I am so confused.
I will never forget the day before the wall went down briefing my troops at Graf on our night movement plan while they watched the Germans stream to the rear for hot chow, beer, and a good night’s sleep in a rack. That summed it up pretty well right then and there.
Europe: Defending itself to the last drop of American blood.
The 4th Reich with Germany the father, France the mother, and Belgium the holy ghost of the spirit of governmental totalitarian lunacy. Socialism destroys the will to live.
The new Waffen SS.
Your title is quite correct
Why should an American conservative care? Is the USA running an empire such that we must stay in Europe? Will it hasten the decline of the US dollar and thus explode our own massive government debt problems? We have been subsidizing EU leftists and their globalist social-engineering policies for the past 60 years. Let them do this themselves, and face the consequences.
Well, I’d like to say it’s the second coming of the Waffen SS, but it’s really going to be the world’s biggest pansy party.
The Greeks had queer armies but they actually fought. The EU army will probably have classes on makeup application.
Why, so they can do what they’ve always wanted to do?
George Washington, while warning us against being entangled in alliances with those whose ideology is enmity to ours, also warned against our enemies entertaining a “perception of weakness” with respect to the USA, and that we “ought not to indulge a persuasion that, contrary to the order of human events, (we) will forever keep at a distance those painful appeals to arms with which the history of every other nation abounds”, particularly if we remove ourselves from areas of the globe where they are eager to move into (this is why they loved Obama so much, due to his doing just that).
If we become “more isolationist”, then other powers become more imperialistic. It’s happened more than once in the history of the USA.
Yep , a Physician will get that Army in shape
