We have previously discussed how the controversial EU President Jean-Claude Juncker has dismissed the notion of national boundaries and called nationalists “stupid.” Various countries are faced with parties seeking to exit from the European Union as the EU exercised more and more control over every aspect of life in various countries. Rather than look for a figure to allay such concerns, the EU is moving toward a leader who has called for a United States of Europe with a single military. Ursula von der Leyen is Angela Merkel’s defense minister and was proposed by EU leaders to take over in October as the new leader in Brussels.Von der Leyen wants to “accelerate” plans for an EU army and the creation of a federal Europe during which nation states would be left with little power or sovereign identity. Europe would be effectively run by global bureaucrats.
This will add an increasing dynamic in Great Britain where they continue to struggle over the refusal of Parliament to move forward on Brexit. Opponents have blocked the exit and pushed for a new referendum. Now however the EU will have a leader who has openly called for what many EU supporters in Britain have denied: a single Europe with its own single unified military.
