Impractical. We may as well make a North American military consisting of Canadian, American, and Mexican citizens. Surely Canadians and Mexicans will follow the orders of a George Bush....right?
For a reference of how it would look...look towards NATO. Without America pulling and prodding, it would easily have fallen apart long ago. And when it came to Bosnia or Kosovo it took a lot of exhausting weeks to persuade just a few of the members to agree to the smallest tasks and mission assignments.

If two nations were attacked, it would simply be like if two US states were attacked, or two Canadian provinces. The European military would have to make strategic decisions.
You're making this more problematic than it necessarily would be. In fact this may go some ways to A. Giving more power to Parliament, and B. Increasing Europeans' sense of communal identity. Both of which are good things!

Just as long as no one invades poland.
This is an academic exercise at best.
Let's not forget that the EU merely caulks over the cracks of Europe. It hardly unites them.
