German chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement today, that Europe can no longer “completely depend” on the US and UK following the election of President Trump and Brexit, reminds me of a blog post I published about a year ago; Trump, Putin at the helm – NATO in dissaray, voicing the eventuality of a European NATO exit, in order to build a European alliance, based on the remnants of WEU (Western European Union) and EUFOR, for instance.
Chancellor Merkel’s address in Munich today brings the issue to the table once more – an issue this blogger, for one, finds increasingly appealing.
An imminent Norwegian EU membership is of course a given, unless we prefer to continue regarding ourselves more of an American protectorate than a European country, of course.
I sincerely hope not.
