Not from The Onion: Jean-Claude Juncker calls for creation of EU army

UpdateWell, it makes sense now: A Talk-Face army.

The European Union is set to launch a first operation in a new propaganda war with Russia within days of EU leaders giving formal approval to the campaign at a summit on Thursday.

Officials told Reuters that a dozen public relations and communications experts would start work by the end of March in Brussels with a brief to counter what the EU says is deliberate misinformation coordinated by the Kremlin over Moscow’s role and aims in Ukraine and elsewhere in Europe.


The president of the European Commission has called for the creation of an EU army in order to show Russia “that we are serious about defending European values”.
In an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, Jean-Claude Juncker, who leads the EU’s executive arm, said an EU army would let the continent “react credibly to threats to peace in a member state or a neighbour of the EU”.

I am sure this ‘call’ will just make Vlad wet his pants.  How fucking long would it take just to write the Framework?  How many white papers?  So now, all EU states have to provide a second set of troops to the EU Army?  What about their defence budgets…. such as the are?  That will have to voted on by each country.  Training standards, etc, etc, etc.

You better start now to make the Spring of ’39 Initial Operating Assessment and Budget Review.
