EU Combined Military HQ To Be Launched ‘Within Days’

European Union leaders plan to move forward with the creation of an EU military headquarters within the next few days – and warn that Britain may still be expected to take part, even after Brexit.

Plans to set up a joint Military Planning and Conduct Capability (MPCC) facility, agreed by all 28 member states in March, had been stalled by British objections to the facility having an operational military role.

    We have a combined command. It’s called NATO. If they want to exclude us, Euronate on them. We’ll take our marbles and go home. Maybe we should revive the Warsaw Pact and join it.

    Without the UK and North America – if history is any indicator, any Euro military force will fold like a house of cards when threatened – I still remember my High School WW2 History classes – Polish troops rushing to fight the Nazi Panzer tank Blitzkreig on horseback with swords, the French rushing to surrender and collaborate, Italians getting their asses kicked and then switching sides. Yup Europe (other than the UK) truly have a glorious military history in the last 75 years or so.

    It will become bogged down in a quagmire of diversity, it’s “soldiers” will become preening targets for jihadis, it’s grandest war plan will be to invade Israel on behalf of it’s “palistinian” constituancy in european parliaments. It is a doomed dumb idea.

      And the Israelis will kick their ass if they tried.

    There are no military forces in Europe any more. The cold war ended, they went home, and spent their peace dividend importing and financing an invader.
