Psssst! Is it a big secret! Until now!
"Plans to create an EU army 'kept secret' from voters"
Somehow this is all related to Brexit! The English withdrawal from the European Union as to decided by referendum.
"Plans to move towards the creation of a European army are reportedly being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum. Drawn up by the EU’s foreign policy chief, the Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy foresees the formation of new European military and operational structures. This first step towards an EU army is supported by Germany and other countries, The Times reports. In 2011, similar proposals were vetoed by Britain, although there were concerns that a loophole could allow nine states to group together to bypass opponents"
A trans-European army similar to NATO but MINUS THE UNITED STATES AND PRESUMABLY CANADA TOO!
What already exists in an informal manner I might think would be formalized and open. The Nordic nations for instance already having military agreements that would allow them to act in concert sans the participation of others in NATO?
