The next European war

During my recent days of inactivity we have been treated to/forced to endure* (delete as appropriate) the grand theatrics of the EU elite, supposedly shoring up the Euro by creating a €1 trillion ‘bail out fund’.

Only, this being the deluded EU daydreamers at work, the figure broadcast to the world was unfunded.  It was plucked out of thin air before those who were going to contribute to it had even been asked – or in the case of European taxpayers, told – to hand over money.

But then came the warning that has been held in reserve for years by the integrationist elite. It fell to Germany’s Angela Merkel to deliver it:

Another half century of peace and prosperity in Europe is not to be taken for granted. If the euro fails, Europe fails. We have a historical obligation: to protect by all means Europe’s unification process begun by our forefathers after centuries of hatred and blood spill. None of us can foresee what the consequences would be if we were to fail.

The message was clear, if we don’t back the financial lunacy and the ever closer political and fiscal union being foisted upon us by the bureaucrats, the uber wealthy and their political drones, then the consequence could be another war in Europe.

However, Merkel and her ilk have got it wrong.  A failure of the Euro and the EU does not mean Europe will be plunged into war.  The political class across Europe is broadly united, so who would be declaring war on whom and for what reason?  Besides, the military capability of the European states has been so degraded by politicians jumping on the ‘peace dividend’ bandwagon their war fighting potential has been dramatically reduced.  Not to mention the fluffy bunny political correctness that spread like a sore across the continent and which sought to remove aggression from the fighting men, and turn them into armed humanitarian relief workers and ineffective peacekeepers who baulk at the first sign of conflict.

No, the prospect of war is made more likely by the political elite and their backers continuing along this doomed integrationist path.

It won’t be the military units of the European countries being pitted against one another, the scenario which with Merkel is trying to scare people into passive, obedient consent.  It will be ordinary people turning on the political class for stealing their democracy and pursuing self serving interests that are bringing about the ruination of economies and have already undermined social structures and cohesion.

The next European war will not be a planned and deliberate military action.  It will be the result of civil strife borne of the rejection of anti democratic hegemony as the people take back what has been stolen from them.

But as usual no one inside the bubble, politico or journalist, can see it.  When it happens they will be the only ones not to have seen it coming.

    This piece can truly be described as ‘Applied Commonsense’
    Now, why cannot those of our remaining honest politicians see this?
    And then, act upon it……

    The EU is, and always has been destined to implode; a cynical construction of megalomaniac madmen aided and abetted by our own treacherous speudo-elites from Heath to the supercilious and rebarbative Cameron.

    England’s self-determining reconstruction is just around the corner.

    Excellent piece AM, though some of MSM can see it, just the warnings are tucked away, usually in the business sections.

    They won’t have any money to pay for a war.

    Check this out AM:

    This smacks of complete desperation on par with invoking the spectre of European war. The Eurozone must be in even worse shape than we were led to believe…

    Merkel said: “We have a historical obligation: to protect by all means Europe’s unification process begun by our forefathers after centuries of hatred and blood spill. ”

    Is there a term for this sort of nonsense? A false consciousness? The steel and coal board, EEC and EU did not prevent war in Europe. The victors of WWII parking their shit all across the continent and subsidising an economic miracle did. NATO did. Trade did.

    Perhaps if the europhiles would tell us which two (or more) EU countries the EU prevented from going to war with each other, then we may look upon their claim as slightly less ludicrous than it appears.

    A very interesting video summarising the debt horror about to be inflicted on the people of Europe.

    Rather than war, civil unrest in individual states is the more likely scenario

  9. 9 EU Hypocrisy 30/10/2011 at 4:08 pm

    Merkel’s deliberate fear mongering about war is a deeply flawed on a number of counts :

    1. The attached briefing note by the think tank Global Britain highlights why the EU prevents war argument is a fallacy.

    Click to access BN71KeepingthePeace.pdf

    “Keeping the Peace in Western Europe
    Since 1945, no Western European nation has gone to war with another.
    This has nothing to do with the European Union.”

    2. Norway, Switzerland and Iceland have never joined the EU and yet they have not gone to war or descended into violence.

    3. Greenland left the EU in 1985 and somehow, without the EU, seems to have managed to avoid warfare and a collapse into chaos.

    4. In 2011 which war is the EU preventing today ?

    5. The spread of mature democracies prevent war as democracies rarely go to war with each other.

    6. Non EU countries like Canada, Australia, Japan and the whole of Latin America etc appear not to have descended into violence without the help of the EU.

    AM – the political self-appointed ‘elite’ know very well what is coming down the line and this whole monetry charade they’re engaged in is purely so they can squirrel away as much as possible before the proverbial hits the fan.

    Of course, they think that they won’t be pursued and that we’ll all just be relived that their EU fanaticism has failed and quietly get on with our lives whilst they disppear into the sunset with their stolen wealth.

    But that simply won’t be good enough for some of us. We WILL pursue them, just as the nazis were pursued after WW2. They will pay dearly for what they have done…

    Thanks WfW and TBF for your kind links.

    Well thought out and astutely argued and you’re coming from ‘right down my street’ AM.

  13. 14 right_writes 31/10/2011 at 4:18 am

    Helmut Kohl used to use that one too AM, and it was just as deluded then as now.

    You are right, civil strife as currently to be seen in Greece will be coming here soon, just as soon as we can get our fat ar*es off of the sofa.

    I’m just waiting for the rest of Europe to ask for a 50% reduction in the money they owe, do you think people might get upset when this is refused?

    The elephant in the room, with respect to war, is that large armies are not necessary.
    While, in Europe, only the UK and France have nuclear-armed forces, at the moment, producing such weapons is quite easy if the necessary material exists. Which it does.
    The idea of great armies cutting swathes through countries is so 20th century.
    Destabilisation of Europe would increase the chances of conflict, if that conflict became a shooting-war then the chance of it becoming nuclear is quite high.
    I doubt that the USA will have the interest in preventing such, quite the contrary.
    As for Greece: The chances of the military taking control must surely be very high. If that happens we are [again] presented with the high chance of armed conflict with turkey.

    Personally I can’t see the EU being the cause of conflict any time soon. What is more likely to happen is Germany and France dominating a union of clients within a United States of Europe While Britain and the rest of the non Euro countries band together to make alliances based on trade and voting blocs to counter pro German and French bias within the EU.

    We, the British would do well to remember the Commonwealth in the years ahead. A decent government putting the needs of the British first wouldn’t go amiss either.

    War is always bred from discontent, that’s how Hitler rose to power, he proffered his views to blue collar earners and the unemployed (which were the masses), while using the elite in superior positions to enforce his rule. The same format is being applied in RSA. The problem with politics is that countries spend too much time bleating about atrocities in other countries. Take apartheid in South Africa – this was a big no BUT no one has said a word to the USA about the indigenous Indians and how the were isolated to little reservations, the yanks stole that land – how is that different to apartheid? What about some pressure on the UK to release Ireland?? In the end they keep shifting the focus to some other place so people won’t take a good look at what going on right under their noses.
    In South Africa we have murders of white people which puts us at 6 out of 8 for genocide, our government has just passed a secrecy bill, our government is trying to promulgate a new black empowerment bill in parliament that will mean even more retrenchments (mainly white) and white owned business wont be able to do much business anyway, they want to indiscriminately appropriate land and property without compensation with or without a legitimate land claim, strikes are at an all time high and will increase.
    We have prophecies that a lot of people are paying attention to now, that sparks bloodshed of catastrophic proportions. Many people have arranged to go to places of safety already (this is marked by the death of Nelson Mandela), we have Julius Malema who spews hate speech against whites, encourages murder and rape of whites but this is fine because we now have DEMOCRACY.
    Civil strife is everywhere now, we cant get away from it. We will be fed the BS by politicians until they have amassed their wealth and go wherever it is they want to go and leave the different populations to pick of the pieces.
    The fact that there are so many going hungry (except in Africa because they devour they do not prepare for the day of tomorrow) shows the economic state of any currency despite what we are led to believe.
