A European Army? Merkel in Brussels (Nigel Jones, UK, 11/14/18 2:09 pm)

Lest anyone still had any doubts at all, Angela Merkel has just settled all discussion on the true nature of the EU.

The Empress told the fake European Parliament that Europe needs "a real, true European army."

Now if the EU is truly a peaceful trading bloc, as Istvan Simon and others naively believe, why on earth would it need an army when NATO already exists?

The EU, and let us face facts, is the Fourth Reich--a totalitarian dictatorship in embryo.

JE comments:  Merkel's call received applause and boos.  Note the lack of any timetable beyond "one day." 

There are many ways to interpret the Chancellor's "modest proposal." Might it be nothing more than a sign of Europe's profound distrust of the mercurial Trump?  What about the funding, the command structure, and most important of all, the point of a European army?

We can be sure of one thing:  With a shared army, France and Germany can no longer go to war with each other.

  • A European Army? (John Heelan, UK 11/15/18 5:02 AM)
    Regarding Angela Merkel's appeal for a European army, John E commented on November 14th: "We can be sure of one thing: With a shared army, France and Germany can no longer go to war with each other."

    That might be true. However, we should be fully aware of the multiple wars between England and Franco-German regimes.


    JE comments:  And don't forget Orwell's Oceania (the UK and the Americas) vs Eurasia (all of Continental Europe).  The wild card for the Merkel Wehrmacht:  will Russia be invited to join, or is it the whole reason for creating the army?

  • A European Army? (Istvan Simon, USA 11/17/18 9:34 AM)
    Nigel Jones asked, "why on earth would Europe need an army when NATO already exists"?

    It is surprising that Nigel would ask this question, because the answer is obvious: Europe needs its own army, because it can no longer rely on NATO alone, as our the US president has undermined NATO. There is a lot of fence-mending that will need to be done to undo all the damage caused by Trump when he finally ends up in prison for his crimes. The latter fate is inevitable in this observer's opinion, and it is now only a matter of time.


    The political consequences of the results of the Blue Tsunami that I predicted in this Forum, which indeed happened in the November 6 elections, is that Trump's ultimate fate is now pretty much settled. The country has massively repudiated Trump and his policies. Trump is flailing like a frightened little fish out of water.


    Trump fired AG Sessions and replaced him with a corrupt con-man, guilty of commercial fraud himself. Matt Whittaker is an unethical man who promoted big foot items for sale for the masses--I kid you not. He is also a fierce declared opponent of the Russian interference and Obstruction of Justice investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Thus his appointment to oversee that investigation is illegal, and an additional crime of Obstruction of Justice.


    It is also simultaneously futile and ineffective because it will not save Trump. The fact is that even if Trump were to fire Mueller, he is now powerless to stop the investigation. That is because Congress has independent power, which can investigate and subpoena people and documents at will. In the hands of Democrats it will continue and complete Mueller's investigation, no matter what Trump does. For example, Congress can subpoena Trump's tax returns, which in turn will reveal massive corruption of the Trump organization.


    JE comments:  This post started with a comment on the European army, and turned into something very different.  The big question for the new year:  how much real damage can the Democratic House do to Teflon Trump?  Time will tell.
