    European Army?



    Do you think a European Army is a good idea?

    Today France and the UK sign a new defence treaty, is a European Army only a matter of time. source

    It's inevitable, if even only for the money reason. It's cheaper to maintain one smaller but well armed forces.
    To include whole Europe in it, two things must happen first.
    Balkan nations need to learn to like each other. Russia has to stop being paranoid, and must finally understand that no European country wants to attack them.

    I don't think Russia really fears a direct European attack, but perhaps a forceful European army in other places of their own interest (Arctic, Russian neighbouring countries)

    What to do with such an army ? It can be useful for defense, but when it comes to attack/conquer which country will have the rights of that land ? Otherwise the money should be spent for a powerful defensive strategy against aerian attacks. I heard Irak just bought some long range rockets. i don't mean that they would have some violent plans for somebody..just expressing my point of view

    Of course the army would be for defence only. In case of a defensive invasion (paradox I know, people will protest on the streets for that, but this is what the world is like) the invaded part of land won't belong to anyone but to the population which lives there, but under the political control of EU, NATO or whatever until peace is restored and a friendlier, more enlightened/benevolent dictator or other marionette is in power. You surely meant Iran, not Iraq!

    I sincerely hope not. The British Army is the best in Europe by a long, long chalk even despite the recent dreadful cuts in spending. Leave well alone.

    Very very bad idea, considering the fact that the EU is a bunch of unelected elitist buerocrats controlled by central bankers who don't give a shit about you or you families. They will send your sons to kill and die for Israel Just like we are doing in the United States. I am a Marine Corps Veteran, I worked for FEMA, Homeland security, and three member banks of the Federal Reserve. National soveriegnty is intentionally being stripped away by globalist off shore banking interests all around the world that dont answer to anyone. They want a GLOBAL government and a GLOBAL army and a GLOBAL currency. Why do you think we have so many "Global Crisis"? Global Warming, the Global financial crisis, GLOBAL terrorism (which is almost always staged) and fears of a GLOBAL pandemic? It's crisis-reaction-solution and they will be there to solve all our GLOBAL problems. Why do you think they have forced mass immigration in Europe and the United States? To erase national identity in the scheme of things. The EU is just a step toward a Global Union..then see how many freedoms you have left!!!

    Lol, throw the UFO and Masons in for the complete conspiracies list. But be careful what you say, the Big Brother is watching already..., they'll come at night when you deep in sleep...

    My advise, stop believing blindly whatever you hear and fits your liking. Try to study and understand each issue separately. No rush, you have time young fellow.

    Well I have served in the Marine Corps, worked at a very high level security clearance for the most powerful government in the world and for it most powerful banks ...who the hell are you? I'm a 44 year old father of three and I live and work in Manhattan in the midst of these people. I notice you enjoy sarcasm above facts and figures...typical village idiot.

    Oh yes, you're talking to the guy who's in love with facts and figures. Bring them on, the facts and figures this time, and not your delusional theories.
    Ah, name calling, is this your conservative/christian upbringing speaking? I though you were proud of it. Now you have to go to confession, my friend.

    I'm 45 year old father of 3, and currently working on geometry of fabric of space, I figured out the human nature already, I'm building my own house, learning new songs on my guitar, racing, learning Spanish, though slowly lol. On top of it I figured out what was wrong with my wife and fixed her, she's perfect now. I found a cure for my rheumatoid arthritis and alopecia areata, improved other aspects of my health, lost 16 pounds this year. Never been a soldier in uniform, though I never seen classified for a position of a general. On my defence I have to say that I finished many campaigns and battles on my computer.
    How is that? Did I beat you? lol

    Not that I don't know that there are always forces and interest groups, governments, militaries working behind scenes. Always were and always will be. Some are more successful some fail fast. The problem is that there are too many different interests (many groups are on collision course) for them to unite under one common goal of global domination and screwing the little guy.
    You've just thrown all conspiracies into one bag and gave them a common goal.
    Maybe one at the time, please, with fairly accurate and detailed description.

    The power is ALWAYS where the money is...NOWHERE ELSE!! All those sub-special interests need financing!!! They don't get money if they don't play the game. So no, you are wrong again. The central banking minion have the final say in all issues of real power.

    What are you afraid of then? The life of ordinary minion improves dramatically from century to century, we live longer, healthier, richer, with 6 billion of us on this planet. It stands for a great success of human kind overall. Obviously from history you learned how life sucked big time for ordinary folks in the past, right?
    It means that "they" are doing hell of a good job leading us to the future. Shouldn't you be thankful for all of this?

    Romanians, Serbs and Greeks like each other.
    Slovenians and Croats like each other.
    Albanians and Muslim Bosnians like each other.

    Based on these relationships where cooperation is possible restructuring and natural flows, including economic flows, would lead to better results.

    How did you cure your rheumatoid arthritis, I have been suffering with it for 10 years and Remicade is starting to lose its effectiveness.

    In my case it was a vitamin D3 deficiency. For 20 years I was using sunscreen to protect myself against skin cancer and early aging. Accidentally I run myself into D3 deficiency which wasn’t too difficult if one lives in Canada. For years I also had alopecia areata, and then around age 40 I got rheumatoid arthritis, both autoimmune diseases. My joints in fingers where hurting like crazy all the time. Thanks to Mr. Google, some medical tests and knowing history of my health I deduced that my immune system could be out of whack from lack of vitamin D3. I went to the Safeway got a bottle of D3. Three days later the pain was going away. After couple of months it was gone. Now, 5 years later, no signs of arthritis or alopecia. I’m still using sunscreen, but I take 2 000 IU of D3 in summer and 4 000 in winter.
    I have a genetic predisposition to these diseases from my mother side. She had them both too.

    Let me know if D3 works for you too. I wish you luck.

    PS. For good few months I'm taking B 50 (complex), half a pill a day.
    I’d swear I feel better with more energy. Possibly my body regenerates in faster rate. Before that I could feel my joints in hands acting sometimes with intense physical activity. Now even this little acting of arthritis is gone. Also I can go outside without sunglasses now, and my gums stopped bleeding while flossing, plus few other minor improvements. So far I didn’t notice any adverse effects form both vitamins.

    Anything can be achieved, taking into account the welfare of European countries and Europe as a whole.

    So, no one should make unnatural alliances.

    Future EU will be sufficiently large that each country may find itself allies countries.

    In that context, if Romanians, Serbs and Greeks like each other it is natural their countries to cooperate more with each other (in economy, culture and many other areas).

    For example, it is natural that the Serbs and Romanians spend their summer vacation in Greece more than any other neighboring country, as Serbs and Romanians like Greece, it would be unnatural for someone to try to artificially reduce the number of Serbian/Romanian tourists in Greece to increase elsewhere.

    I strongly believe that good economy in the country make people more mellow, happy and less aggressive. They concentrate on making money, buying things, and taking care of family, plus having lots of fun. Bad economy makes people look for someone to blame them for their misfortune. Usual suspect are people of different ethnicities, minorities in their country, and emigrants....well, you can always throw US, Jews and Bankers to the mix. :)
    Good economy is a key. With today's economy based on production we don't need to invade other countries to steal their gold and enslave locals to work for us. In today's economy based on production, technology, science and machines we can produce things that we enjoy and improve our lives without wars, and slaves. The machines are our slaves now, super slaves.
    Interesting thing is mass-media and communication taking part in building peace. I'm watching TV, or listening to the radio, and I know that German and Polish people are quite alike and they both want exactly the same; to buy a car or a house, go to the movies, raise a family, have a job and fun. The communication puts a human face on your neighbor. Why would I want to attack and kill similar human being of similar goal as mine? Many years ago it was so easy to entice one nation against the other with only one newspaper or radio-station run by government, and spewing propaganda.

    European Army might be needed, but mostly to keep peace in conflict zones around the world, and not in Europe.
