In essence, what he’s calling for is an end to NATO…
First, they cry foul when Trump demands NATO pay its ‘fair share” and claim he’s for ending NATO, and a political stooge of Putin, then champion a federalized military which essentially would end NATO due to cost expenditures. Would you really trust the centralized bureaucracy of Brussels with a standing army? And besides, who would pay for it. I’ll tell you, the citizens of member EU states with a new federalized income tax, that’s who.
Verhofstadt: Integrate European defences into EU Army
The European Parliament’s ‘Brexit Coordinator’ and senior MEP, Guy Verhofstadt, has backed President Macron’s call for a full EU Army.
Verhofstadt has gone one step further however, demanding that existing defences forces across Europe are ‘integrated’ into a European Army – making the point with an EU flag bang next to the suggestion, of course.
Writing on Twitter, the EU nationalist said: “President Macron draws the right conclusions from Trump’s ‘America-First’ policy. If we want to guarantee our European security, we need to take our destiny into our own hands by progressively integrating European defence forces into a European Army.”
