I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Gouli, well argued, while there is a President his status entirely different from that of the United or Federated States. There the president is elected by the people who are largely homogenous groups.

In the EU the president is not elected and if he were there would be 27 disparate groups, many of whom distrust their neighbours.

A better working hypothesis is NATO with a unified command system albeit dominated by the one with the biggest wallet and UK as his Second. There are a few carefully constructed articles from which member members Stated may abstain.

Within the EU individual component States are free to use their army in the same way as the US NG.

Of course in the future that EU Army could be used internally, especially if individuals were not deployed in national cadres but in an homogenous force such as the US Army, the Red Army or the French Foreign Legion.
