"Conflict analyst: EU would have ‘second most powerful military on Earth’"
"The EU would have 'the second most powerful military' in the world if its members pooled its resources, insisted the co-director of the Institute of Studies on Conflict and Humanitarian Action in an interview with EurActiv Spain. 'If we added the capabilities we have in the EU together, we would automatically become the second most powerful military force on Earth and the reason we aren’t is because there is no political will. This is because each national government would rather be the head of a mouse rather than the tail of a lion,'” - - Jesús Núñez, a conflict analyst.
THOSE EUROPEAN NATION INTEGRAL MEMBERS OF NATO ALREADY PART OF A FORMIDABLE MILITARY FORCE!
The EU [European Union] from time to time broaching the subject of a Euro Corps. The combined military forces of the various EU nations acting in concert sans American [or Canadian for that matter] participation. But nothing ever seems to come of that concept, at least to my knowledge.
According the military historian and analyst Martin van Creveld the Israeli military at the present time probably the second most powerful military in the world!!
The EU has a long way to go, don't they?
