Did any on else catch the report on the radio about a Euro army this morning. The report stated that the EU has 2 rapid reaction Battle Groups, and wanted more. The French are making increased defence spending increases a priority for there 6 months in charge. I thought this idea had died a death years ago. Who is going to join this outfit, and who is going to decide when and how it will be used? If it is made up of national forces (UN style) will the members retain a national veto on the employment of the national contingent if they disagree? It all looks like pretty strange behavior for an organisation that professes to not want to be a super state.
