Jean Claude Juncker wants a European Army, to present a stronger front to the "Russian threat." Germany says yes, and Britain says no. What's really going on behind the scenes?

Here's the article Joseph is commenting about:

    We see germany making its move,it silenced greece and spain and portugal and any other country that would support a strong american presents in european affairs by cutting their legs off(financially and politically)with the american banks mortgage based( counterfiet)high risk bonds and securities that deutsche bank swindled all the small european countries into buying as security for bonds and securities these countries would then issue themselves,leaving them responsible for the fraudulant securities and bonds issued by the american federal banking system. It was germany that sold these countries on the idea of financing their futures market with the utterly worthless american bonds using their position in the E.U. bank at the time to muscle these smaller EU member into buying the counterfiet securities through their brokerage house. The dutch are into the swindle to the tune of about a trillion dollars worth of these counterfeit bonds they traded for legitimate blue chip funds they had in their social verzekerinngs bank(social security funds). Watch for the NSA to make a big FO-pah in the near future to discredit their role in running Nato intel.

    Sir, I think this is the most important News and Views you have ever given. It effects the future in regards to the policy both diplomatically and otherwise of both the great nations of Europe and the US and will redraw lines of sovereignty and fealty for time to come. I am watching this with bated breath. It’s a grand opera. And on a more mundane note, I think that Europe should get rid of the EU altogether. Because the southern nations are suffering.

    I think you’re wide of the mark here and are trying to shoehorn this story into your geopolitical worldview.
    You can’t understate the sheer hunger for power of the Brussels bureaucracy. The European army isn’t a new story and it’s never gained any traction before, thankfully.
    You have to look at the progression: first there was the single market. In order to get a single market, you need free movement of goods and labour so bye bye to internal border controls between EU states.
    But what use is a single market if everyone is using their own currency? Let’s get rid of those! Now of course this move is bankrupting Southern Europe (Greece obviously but also Spain has unemployment over 20%) while Germany’s mercantilist policies mean that it’s raking in the cash.
    What is the solution to this? Why a common fiscal framework with fund transfers between the regions of course! Buy this won’t work well unless you have closer integration of political decision making.
    And if we’re going to have integrated government, we’ll need a ccommon foreign and defence policy. QED European Army.
    But the whole project is thankfully starting to fall apart and what we’re starting to see are the signs of desperation from Brussels hence the trumped-up Russian threat, which NATO is there to meet anyway. Now that the Conservatives won the UK election yesterda, there will be an In/out EU referendum in 2017.

      ps Juncker’s family suffered during WW2 so in his case I think the desire for a European superstate to prevent further such conflicts is sincere, which makes him all the more fanatical.

      I also wonder if you’ve factored the Anglo-French Lancaster House Accords into your analysis. These treaties between Europe’s 2 (official) nuclear powers stand outside of and separate to the EU’s defence framework.

    Oh yeah, we need more armies to protect us from Russia. These politicians spend the tax payers money on building a EU army to protect themselves from the boogie man.
    Well Russia provides gas and oil to most of Europe, WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO INVADE THESE SOB’?
    Now who is kidding who here, the middle east is a train wreck courtesy of you know who, and now the EU has finally “had it” with these morons in Washington. How long is this farce going to continue. Surely most of the European people know what’s really going on, but the silence is deafening. And then you’ve got the Japanese “thing”, well what is Putin doing? sitting back with a few vodka’ and laughing his ass off.

    British anti-EU sentiment, under an unlikely nationalist guise, has long tended just to be a justification of US unipolarism (I still don’t find those theories that “London” secretly controls the world to be very credible). The people of the UK – when they finally manage to see through the rhetoric of their oligarchs – will really have to think about a new type of future outside of the previous schemes.
    The European Army issue has come up time and again without anything much happening, but now things may be different. While neither Juncker nor anyone else will be suddenly leading a new Grande Armee in Napoleonic style tomorrow, what you say about long term German policy makes sense, and we might see Berlin replacing DC in the current NATO setup.
    And now… how does all this tie in with the secret space programmes and the increasingly-less-hidden financial system, which the European oligarchs do not seem at all anxious to discuss publicly?
    Looking forward to your book and hope that there can be translations published in the main European languages!

    Gilbert Doctorow on Germany’s power in the EU:

    from: American Expert on Russia Gilbert Doctorow: “Merkel is trying not be the US puppet in Ukraine’s conflict” (21:06 min at

    at: 6:10 min mark:

    “Germany has control over all the levers of power in the European institutions:” Junker, the European Commission chairman; Tusk, European Council president; Schulz, European Parliament president ; Brok, EU Parliament Foreign Relations Committee chairman: all operate under Merkel’s aegis.

    So here’s Junker fronting for a European army while he enjoys political protection provided by Merkel, the German head of state in a US occupied country, a head of state put in perhaps the worst position she has been in since taking office due to the revelations of her government’s support for German spying on behalf of and in concert with the US NSA, et al. See: “America’s Willing Helper: Intelligence Scandal Puts Merkel in Tight Place”

    I believe Merkel is the smartest German politician in the room and she’s a survivor of many political wars. If she’s going to save her government she’ll need to appeal to something she’s not appeared comfortable with in the past: appeals to both Germans’ collective sense of sovereignty and their financial interests as one of the world’s leading export powerhouses.

    The game is afoot.

    Only now was I able to connect to your website and view your NEWS AND VIEWS this week. I tried through Bing when I was blocked by Google but was blocked again . As to Europe I think there plan is to reduce America back to a colony and use the CSA fools as their muscle to continue looting this hemisphere. As for Japan it will have to make peace with China, Korea and Russia and become part of East Asia if it’s to have a future. As for the European Union think of Central from the first anime series Fulmetal Alchemist or the rebirth of the Holy Roman Empire minus any interference from the Roman Catholic Church. As Samuel Clemens said history doesn’t repeat itself but it sure does rhyme.
