EU should move toward common army, Germany says

BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union should move toward forming a common army, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a newspaper interview published on Friday.

Asked how she saw the EU developing in the next 50 years, Merkel told daily newspaper Bild: "In the EU itself we must come closer to a common European army."

Germany holds the EU's rotating presidency for the first half of this year.

Last year, Polish President Lech Kaczynski said his country wanted a new 100,000-strong European Union army created to work with NATO in trouble spots in the world or to defend Europe.

Merkel is hosting a summit this weekend in Berlin where the bloc will celebrate its 50th anniversary and unveil a declaration setting out its values and achievements.

Merkel hopes the so-called "Berlin Declaration" will be a springboard for her revival of the European constitution, rejected by French and Dutch voters in 2005.

Merkel told Bild the EU's 27 member states often spent too long grappling with issues under the bloc's existing structure.

"To change that, we need the EU constitution, which suits the decision mechanism of the larger EU," she said.

Germany has vowed to present a "road map" for relaunching the constitution at a June EU summit in Brussels, with a view to getting a new document ratified by mid-2009.

The Euro Union isn't working there and the American Union won't work here either. It's the NWO globalist trash wanting one gov, one bank, one currency, one army. Ethnicity is thrown out the widow and the values that are dear to a certain race are aborted in favor of lumping people together as one. One army means if there is a battle somewhere then the whole EU is to blame and everyone is guilty instead of individual countries being able to decide on their own what constitutes a reason for war. So you all become targets even though you object to the war.

While I doubt it'll be that extreme Globalstomp, even if what you say is true, Europe has mostly congruent values... unlike the Americas.
