Re: #Brexit vote coming soon.

What would even chain of command for EU army even look like? Who would make decisions about its usage? Frankly whole idea seems like little more then simply wet dream of "Make EU Great Again, Murrica GTFO" crowd. It's a look how tough we are exercise it would have no military value. They ...

Re: #Brexit vote coming soon.

If anything, the mandatory 2% for a common EU army where NATO would otherwise be sufficient-ish would lead to more #Brexit hashtags in the future. You are completely right.

Re: #Brexit vote coming soon.

we are talking about EU one. Which doesn't exist in any meaningful way. Well yeah, the whole point is to create it. So far we have argument as follow: 1. Some countries fail to spend enough on their national armies (PRECISELY that, because they are national, every single one funded from different b...

Re: #Brexit vote coming soon.

Any source on that claim? Unless I got smth horribly wrong we have numbers (for once), know how and GDP.
