From Freeper more on the EU defense force. The European militaries welded into a single structure independent of NATO?
"The EU might be one step closer to having its own army as it backs a new defense plan"
"EU ministers approved a common defense plan on Monday despite sharp differences over how far it should go, as Donald Trump's election win stoked fears about Washington's commitment to European security. Trump's campaign threat to think twice about defending NATO allies unless they up their defense spending"
We also need to be 100 % abundantly and absolutely clear about this. Donald Trump as President-Elect merely wants those nation-states constituent members of NATO as it exists at this exact moment to pay their fair share of the NATO budget as agreed upon. PAYING YOUR FAIR SHARE AS AGREED UPON PRESENTS A PROBLEM FOR SOME?
That European independent military force will also needs to have a budget and resources that must be paid somehow. EU planners will face the same dilemma? Some nation-states willing to pay their fair share while others will not? This has been thought through?
See previous blog entries the topic of which was an independent EU military force:
AND IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP ALL THIS SHOULD BE TAKEN WITH A NEW PERSPECTIVE?
