Steinmeier calls for European army
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung/Deutsche Welle - 11/05/2008

BERLIN - German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and other leading politicians at an SPD conference on security issues earlier this week, called for the establishment of a "European armed force", saying that he is in favour of speeding up such a development.

It is reported that Peter Struck, the SPD parliamentary group leader and a former Defence Minister, proposed that the common European army should consist of a "combined military", and called for an EU air transport command, a "real" ministerial defence council and the creation of an EU military academy.

The article quotes Hennign Riecke, Head of the European Foreign and Security Policy at the German Council on Foreign Relations, saying that the move towards a combined military SHOULD BE LABELLED AS A PROCESS OF SLOW MILITARY INTEGRATION, with new institutions created that lead to an organic growth toward a common army, IN ORDER TO AVOID RESISTANCE IN SOME MEMBER STATES.

The article also notes that "The EU reform treaty appears to be heading in this direction when it specifies that member states will cooperate to 'take concrete measures to enhance the availability, interoperability, flexibility and deployability of their forces.'"

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
