I think a Pan European army is the least of our worries tbh.
Sadly the brave men and women who sign up to serve in the British forces are deployed by the politicians who you have described, very accuately imo, to carry out their own particular agendas, not to defend the country they signed up to protect ? Are we less susceptible to terrorist attacks in this country because of our involvement in Afghanistan? Is Britain safer since politicians decided Saddam Hussein should be deposed ?
We all know the answer don't we ? I think I'm right in saying the last time British forces were used in the pursuit of British interests was the Falklands War. And that was a situation which we now know could have been avoided had early intelligence been acted on.
by the Government that is in power......Who Else...
Have I missed something...are you guys saying the Armed Forces should be separate,and not
be controlled by the Elected Government....
Admittedly used sometimes for Financial gain.....OIL.....but this is for the benefit of the UK as well.
They along with the Police IMO have done an amazing job in keeping this country
relatively safe...given all the shit that is going on around us.
