Worrying: MEPs Publish EU Army Dossier
MEPs have published plans for a fully-fledged EU army that could be deployed by Brussels without member states’ prior approval.
In a development that many across the continent will find concerning, European MPs have published a dossier that sets out plans for an integrated EU army.
Ironically, the militaristic plans were drawn up by the liberal ALDE (European Alliance of Liberals & Democrats) grouping, led by Brexit negotiator-in-chief – and chronic Anglophobe – Guy Verhofstadt.
The plans state that a combined land, sea and air force would be autonomous of member states, meaning that it could be deployed directly from Brussels without prior approval of national governments.
During Britain’s referendum campaign, many pro-EU politicians such as the liberal – and Verhofstadt ally – Nick Clegg derided the fear of an EU army as “a dangerous fantasy”.
Those who warned against such a development have been vindicated – again.
Many across the continent share the fears of the British public and have warned that an EU army further removes sovereignty from the nation state, whilst also equipping Brussels with a force to use against member states who step out of line.
There are also fears that EU fanatics could deploy such an army against the peoples of Europe themselves in the event that public opinion against Brussels spills over into mass protest.
