Most people will probably think, so what? I know that our military is relatively insignificant in comparison to the US, and a number of other Western
militaries (even though, my countrymen fought alongside the US, Australia, the UK and Canada in southern Afghanistan).
However, this event is significant because it is not just the Dutch military that is hit by austerity measures, it's been widely reported by the
mainstream media how the British, French and German militaries are struggling to survive. As a consequence, the British and French militaries are
planning to co-operate more closely.
This weekend, there is a big NATO conference in Portugal, and the austerity measures will definitely be discussed. Why I think this news is so
significant, is because the MSM discusses it so thoroughly. To me, it seems that this is the beginning of an European military.
Phase 1: increased co-operation amongst militaries of nation states
Phase 2: European procurement of weapons and regional clusters
Phase 3: One European military
The financial crisis is the perfect excuse for creating a unified military and in essence, I'm not against it. On the contrarily, I think we need to
have one military with US power fading rapidly and China on the other hand growing stronger and stronger, but I'm afraid of the people ruling this
world - the people in charge of institutions like the EU, the Fed, the US. Their drive for globalization is not founded on common interests, rather,
they seek to gain more control over the world for their own wellbeing and our government puppets gladly work along with them.
