from The Daily Bell:
Jean-Claude Juncker calls for EU army … European commission president says this military development would persuade Russia the bloc is serious about defending its values – UK Guardian
Dominant Social Theme: War, the health of the state.
Free-Market Analysis: The current Ukraine is the gift that keeps on giving from the standpoint of the expansion of state power. As Russia is considerably demonized, the vast military-industrial complex of the West – including NATO and various standing armies – is invigorated. NATO is expanding in the area and the US just sent troops to the region. It is predictable, therefore, that calls should come for an EU army, or should we say an “expanded” EU army, as the EU does have military units in place already.
