Macron: We need 'real European army' to defend against US & Russia

French President Emmanuel Macron has once again revealed the desire of EU true believers for the bloc to have full military capability, calling for a “real European army”.

Worryingly, Macron is seemingly now setting out America as a potential enemy, telling Europe 1 Radio: “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America.”

Specifically on America, Macron has said: “When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security.

“We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European Army.

EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker used a previous ‘State of the Union’ address (with soldiers on screen) to call for “a functioning European Defence Union” by 2025.

The EU recently set aside €13 billion for such a ‘European Defence Union’ and have said that “the European Union is stepping up its contribution to Europe’s collective security and defence”.

This huge push by the likes of Macron for an EU Army is frankly terrifying.
