    For the first time in history, the whole continent cooperates in military efforts and is not driven by expansionist or militaristic goals.

    Therefore, there is no rivalry and instead there are grounds for synergy.

    Does the article make a case for Europe being able to use smart power and its combined economic power to contribute to common European strategic and geopolitical aims?

  3. We have Belgium as allies and the French are behind us! With this statement the defence rests it's case.

    I thought it was a rather unorthodox view and wondered how far it could go, given the commitments already in hand and the economy of the EU not being quite robust?
     
  5. Cernunnos you forgot the Cloggies and the Italians! Recipe, disaster for the use of.
    Bit like the EU as a whole (hole?).
