Retirement positions of JS

Comment by Adamantine:
To this list one must add the
28) Co presidency of the Security and Defense Agenda. (SDA)
also adding

10)  European Security and Defense College honorary fellowships to Javier Solana and to Karl von Wogau, 7 September 2010

This list is no longer up to date. It is tedious simply keeping up with the positions and honors accorded.

In closing the seminar, ( the speaker in question ) made a public acknowledgment to the work done in recent years by the Spanish army that has adapted quickly and effectively to new international duties. He noted that in today’s world is a need for rapid deployment capabilities and, in this sense, Spain can make to the international community the value added by the Civil Guard, a militarized police force with similarities to the Italian Carabinieri and French Gendarmerie.

  1. “Goeie genade, het die man nie einde nie!”
    My gosh, is there no end to this man!

    Were does he get time for all of this? And then he still sends out 20+ Tweets daily. Is there another man who holds 28 positions (maybe more) and still cope with daily life?



  2. i think solana’s “energy” comes from below. perhaps a short while from now he will manifest hell’s very persona…………………………….


  3. Setting the stage for the 3 horns to be uprooted:
    Merkel, Sarkozy propose eurozone government

    My guess is that much of the rest of EU will not want to be told how to run their fiscal house by France and Germany – and they will be 2 of the 3 uprooted – in favor of stronger central Brussels based authority that is not as influenced by the large states.
