  •  NATO is NOT the EU, however... (0+ / 0-)

    despite that you seem to want this to be about NATO and the big bad US hegemony of NATO.

    The states that created the EC and EU did and still do see a significant security component that is autonomous from NATO.

    That is a fact. To YOU pillar may be meaningless, but you do not speak for them, their treaties do.

      is that the EU in no way poses a military threat to the national security of the US. I'm not interested in the splitting of hairs that are completely unrealated to that matter.

      •  I replied to an assertion YOU made... (0+ / 0-)

        in the comments that was, in my opinion, disinformation!

        I supplied sourcing to show this, as opposed to your glib and conclusory remarks.

        And I left a comment related to the diary elsewhere.

        Who cares if the EU poses a military threat to us? You take the intelligence where you find it.

        I seriously doubt that this will have the dire effect attributed, except now the people who did not like us in the first place will be more circumspect.
