Does Europe Need An Army?

Will a European army become a reality one day? The debate on the European Union’s military capability has been going on since its founding. But with the Trump administration pulling back from NATO and the world order looking increasingly volatile, will this finally push Europe to take charge of its own defence?

You need to watch the video.

Re: Does Europe Need An Army?

who will pay for it.
Bulgaria?Serbia?Romania?Hungary?Greece?Poland?

the bill will be largely left to France and Germany to pay and it will be these two countries who will boss the other EU countries around in the same way as nato is bossed by America.

I suppose it would have helped if I had posted the link to the video, but I have lost it now. LOL!

Re: Does Europe Need An Army?

Can someone resurrect the old jokes about Italian tanks with 6 reverse gears, and all the other European nations please? I don't remember them, but someone must. . . .

Re: Does Europe Need An Army?

Warfare is changing, I think that there will be a lot of sneaky cyber attacks in future where sophisticated countries with a complex infrastructure come under attack, unlike the 'bomb to hell and back' warfare of Syria etc.
