    No, not the next time. I don't see where it's worth the effort.

    You're rights its not.
    The EU is already a bigger trading bloc than the US and within 20 years the US will be China's bitch.

    This is a work in progress since the Maastricht treaty. But I mean, "under full parliament control"

    Germany has the biggest say in the parliament.
    Sounds good to me...if they can all agree on a foreign policy.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. It would be a very tough job though, just with the language issues alone!

    Same problem with NATO and they seem to manage. I know with NATO AWACS the official language in the work place is english.

    A European army though would be far more integrated then Nato has ever been

    And the Language issue would not be to much of a concern I think.

    I believe a large number of europeans can speak more then one language

    I would hope it would be more integrated.

    I know a lot of Europeans speak more than one language; since many learn different languages at a young age (at least I know that is the case in Holland). It's a better system than we have here, where students barely learn any languages in school and usually start it way late.

    I think it would be great if they actually do it. Since World War II, the defense of much of Europe has been put onto the American taxpayer. It's time the Europeans assume the real costs of securing their own countries.
