EU Uber Alles

Why does this sound like a really, really bad idea? Its Germany's Prime Minister, Angela Merkel, on the 50th birthday of the EU, calling for the formation of a single EU military. And I thought it was only Chirac that was dreaming of European world conquest.

Hmmm, given the performance of our NATO allies in Afghanistan - with few notable exceptions, of which Germany is not one - I really wonder just how effective an EU army could possibly be?

And how would it work? I guess if you have the Germans as the commanders, the British as the infantry, and the French as cooks it would be okay. Of course, if you have the French in command, the Germans as the military police, and the English as the cooks, it would seem a disaster just waiting to happen.
