    I wouldn't worry, how much can they really achieve without Malta on board with all this?

    Damn Europeans, you are fucking dumb to allow this.

    You just became states of a federal government, and you don't even know it.

    The Euro was forced upon countries? Or national legislatures sold out their fellow citizens?

    Yep running the World was a lot of bother and never so much as a thank you at the end of it , our colonial chums are just starting to cotton on to that fact as will the Chinese when their turn comes around .

    Given how utterly shit multinational forces tend to be, and the cluster fuck of it can barely function operations.

    This will be hilariously bad.

    nukes and globalization still make a war between powers stupid. i think everyone realizes its stupid.

    the only way that a ww3 happens imo, is if some idiot paints his country into a diplomatic corner, and feels compelled to do something stupid. or, there's some sort of non-state 3rd party that gets a war started between two or more powers.

    you could say the same thing about the USA????

    i mean, we cover roughly as large of an area as the EU, and our various regions are nearly just as diverse, sectionalized, and different from one another.

    Should people also thank you for slavery? Colonialism was a nightmare for the third world and a wonderful dream for you imperialists.

    People have been doing stupid shit since day one. Greed and the quest for power are powerful motivators, but so is fight or flight.

    Should have thought about that 100 years ago so we would still rule the world.

    most people in europe speak several languages fluently. they havent fought one another in quite a while. the USA was ready to fight in 1916 alongside one another, even though we had been murdering each other up until 1865.

    Its quite likely that the EU army would be modelled after the French Army, so its not like it will have equal representation of all nations, it would most likely have a French bulk with German funding.
