Imagine A Brussels With Guns

President of France Emmanuel Macron

From the continent that gave us Napoleon’s world war,  World War 1, World War 2, the Holocaust, ethnic cleansing and colonialism, this bright idea:

France’s finance minister has called for the EU to become a powerful new “empire” to rival the US and China in an interview which will infuriate Donald Trump.

Bruno Le Maire’s … controversial calls for a new superstate came as he backed Emnanuel Macron’s call for a “real European army”.

And he suggested Brussels should go one even further and establish itself as an “empire”.

“It’s about Europe having to become a kind of Empire, as China is. And how the US is,” the French finance minister told the German newspaper Handelsblatt…

In an extraordinary attack on the US president, Macron lumped Washington together with Moscow and Beijing as Europe’s biggest foes…

He said: “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America.

“We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army.”

Macron is a xenophobe. Or maybe just paranoid.
