    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Notwithstanding that NATO really covers that.....

    There are far too many questions that a full-blown European, separate from Nato, army raises to ever consider it! Of greatest importance is who would actually gives it orders - and how would that body be held responsible/accountable for its actions!

    Btw. There are some specific EU controlled, generally specialist, armed forces already, but certainly not a full blown army!

    Having appointed folk running the beauracracy that is the EU is, to me, not ideal but bearable. Having the same/equivalent folk deciding who to take military action against is beyond the pale!

    As the UN's army is one of Peace Keeping are you suggesting that it should be binned and a European Army would provide a better service. Perhaps before you answer you should see where UN Forces are currently committed under the guise of Peace Keeping.

    Like NATO the UN is now yesterdays news......it never really worked in the first place.
    There is now a new world order USA/China/India/Europe/Russia/Turkey and Central Africa.
    It is all about population and power.

    The UN has never been able to call on countries to support its peace keeping missions in the same way that NATO at times has not had the support of its community.

    Why would you feel that a European Army would be any more successful in getting its members to fully support any of its commitments.

    Because the command structure would be entirely different.
