Juncker Calls for EU Army

Saying that NATO was not enough, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called for the creation of an EU army.  Germany’s Defense Minister announced her support for the idea, while the British PM said that the UK would “never support” such an army. This comes at a time when EU diplomacy proved incapable to deter Putin; several national EU armies are in a less-than-stellar state; and America’s military rebalance to Asia will force Europe to defend itself and its values.
