'Now the Brits are gone' Ex-Macron defence advisor predicts Brexit to pave way for EU ARMY

GERMANY and France will quickly take great strides towards the militarisation of the European Union now that Britain is set to leave the club, Emmanuel Macron’s former defence advisor has predicted.

Angela Merkel and Emmanuel MacronFancois Heisbourg, who advised the new French president before his election victory, said the UK had been the main block on member states pouring more cash into EU military projects. 

And he said he expected “surprising” developments in the drive to establish greater EU military forces after Angela Merkel’s expected victory in the German general election next month.

France under Mr Macron is pushing for a significant ratcheting up of European defence integration, including the creation of a multi-billion euro EU defence fund and new military headquarters. 

Such plans have previously been thwarted by Britain, which used its influence to derail the most federalist initiatives, but now look set to go ahead at pace after Brexit. 

Senior military experts have warned any attempts to create an EU army could seriously destabilise NATO by sucking away political attention and resources at a time when it needs reinvigorating. 

But eurocrats have dismissed these criticisms, saying their newly integrated forces will operate in tandem with NATO and will strengthen the alliance by modernising European defence. 

Speaking to the London-based Centre for European Reform (CER) think-tank, Mr Heisbourg said Britain had acted as a drag anchor on significant investment in the European Defence Agency (EDA).

The EDA, which is a tiny agency headquartered in Brussels, is headed up by EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini and is tasked with fostering military cooperation within the bloc. 

Now the Brits are out the member states should invest a lot more in the EDA

It has a minuscule budget of just £28 million, which has been frozen at that level as a result of British opposition to any expansion of its operations which could lead to the creation of a euro force. 

Mr Heisbourg said: “The short answer as to why it’s been underfunded and underused is two letters - UK. Now the Brits are out the member states should invest a lot more in the EDA.

“If you are in the Commission and if you have some money to play with - and the Commission is talking about a billion [euros] a year - then you can make it very clear to the member states that if they want to be fully involved they must take the EDA seriously.

“And if they don’t well then the Commission will play a greater role than they may want to in terms of how it wants to spend its one billion.” 

Yet another headline that highlights the EU's determination to have its own Army.  This is exactly what Bible Students expect to see, An EU Army deployed by the Beastly System of the European Union to invade the Middle East with Russia.  This move once again is in perfect alignment with Bible Prophecy which has foretold 2500 years ago.  The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army.  Again it's interesting that they see the development of a EU Army as an important next step.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ's Return.  

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of "Magog". The Land of MagogThey are spoken of militarily as the "King of the North".  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
