We've been here before
With the imminent departure of the United Kingdom the Germanic EU Project can steam dangerously ahead.
The long held EU dream is of an EU stretching from the Atlantic to the Middle East and to the Russian border. It will, they hope, encompass Ukraine, Moldavia, Georgia, and Turkey.
It will also have a its own Army, Air Force and Navy.
We've been here before. Twice.
Merkel, Juncker and cohorts appear to think Russia will stand idly by and allow it to happen a third time. Any schoolchild knows they will not. The insane have taken over the madhouse.
Perhaps Eire should think of leaving the EU. Perhaps Scotland should not rush back in.
Anybody who thinks an EU Army is a great idea ought to read The Good Soldier Svejk. Yes, we've had an EU before. Only it was called the Habsburg Monarchy. It was little different from today. Same policies. Same expansionism. Same politics of fear. It ended with a world war. This time around we need some cooler heads.
May peace be with you all.
