If the European Union is to achieve the fundamental aim of its founding fathers, which was to guarantee peace for future generations in Europe, it must strengthen solidarity among its member states and instil in its peoples the sense of a common destiny.

“The bodies and procedures are in place: the PSC, the EU Military Staff, the European Defence Agency, the European External Action Service… But there is a gap at the level of operation headquarters, which was essential to achieve the responsiveness necessary in times of crisis. The Libyan crisis serves as a timely reminder. If the EU had wanted to take action – in the event that NATO had not wanted to become involved – it would have been incapable of doing so because there were no headquarters for the conduct of operations immediately available”.

If the European Union is to achieve the fundamental aim of its founding fathers, which was to guarantee peace for future generations in Europe, it must strengthen solidarity among its member states and instil in its peoples the sense of a common destiny. The CSDP must therefore be ambitious in scope.
The procedures necessary to implement the solidarity clause (Article 2) of the Lisbon Treaty should be finalised. Civil-military cooperation should be given top priority so that the Union can organise CSDP operations in a global manner.

Comment by Adamantine:

It seems apparent that the final push to organize the EU and its military awaits some crisis and arrival of a leader who can instil in its people a common destiny.

The WEU was a mechanism which facilitated the growth of the strength of the military for the EU. It will no longer be functioning. It will also cease to be a window on the EU military world available for us to look through.

The comment has been made by quite a few observers on this web site that the Antichrist must remain hidden until his appointed time. It has been suggested that we are now in a holding period awaiting the crisis that will bring him forward. Europe and its leaders seem to be as insure of the next step and its timing as we may be. Prophetic interpretations do not seem to provide us with specific insights as to those events which will bring forth the crisis and the leader.

If we are in that time period of the end the tempo of events and short time allotted to the end time scenario in Revelation and Daniel would seem to imply that the wait will not be long.

  1. so soon. it is later than people think……….. the 4th of july is here and i do not see much happy. i still ask God to bless america but my request is that He bless us with bowed heads and bowed hearts to Him in deep repentance for we as a nation have been full of evil ways against all things sacred. life liberty and the pursuit of happiness would look like altogether different things in humble contrite people instead of the “freedom” that is only license to sin that takes horrible and ungrateful advantage of the great Grace that God has bestowed. my heart aches for my nation and it’s families that are caught in the devil’s grip but i also know that God has always had a people and He can use His love-bought children to shine out real freedom that is only found in the shed Blood of His Son. may we have hearts that pledge allegiance to only Him and watch Him still work by the power of His Holy Spirit to bring people all over this nation and in our homes and families to their knees turning to His Cross in faith to be forgiven for He is still Mighty to save. He has yet a harvest even as the harvest comes to a close. i read jude today. His precious Word said in vs. 20-21: beloved, build up yourselves in your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. keep yourselves in the Love of God, looking for the Mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (some will come through tender entreaty and some will come by way of severe measures vs.22-23). Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling,and to present you faultless—–before the Presence of His Glory——-with exceeding joy, to the Only Wise God our Savior, be Glory, Majesty, Dominion, and Power, both Now and Forever. amen. love to all in His Dear Name.
