EU Pushes for European Army

European Union leaders are actively pursuing “the creation of EU military structures and possibly European nuclear armed forces,” German Foreign Policy reported.

In November, the European Parliament adopted a resolution urging “the EU to establish ‘multinational armed forces,’ in which ‘all member states’ should participate in one way or another” (ibid.). The combined military force would be “capable of independently waging wars” and would act on the interests of the EU instead of NATO.

According to German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine, adopting the resolution could prompt Germany to develop an arsenal of nuclear weapons as “the French and British arsenals…would be insufficient” to meet the EU’s needs.
