Brussels Looks to Expand Into Middle East and Africa – UKIP MP: “EU Wants an Empire”

The latest EU foreign policy document, titled “A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy,” calls for an extension of the Union’s influence in regions as far as Central Asia and Central Africa.

It also outlines “gradual synchronisation and mutual adaptation” between different member states’ individual defense strategies.

“The EU wants its own Empire as former Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso made clear when he was in charge,” UKIP’s defence spokesman Mike Hookem said. “This global strategy by the EU is yet another reason why last Thursday’s result was a lucky escape for the UK.”

The Executive Summary of the document reads:

It is in the interests of our citizens to invest in the resilience of states and societies to the east stretching into Central Asia, and to the south down to Central Africa. Under the current EU enlargement policy, a credible accession process grounded in strict and fair conditionality is vital to enhance the resilience of countries in the Western Balkans and of Turkey. Under the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), many people wish to build closer relations with the Union: our enduring power of attraction can spur transformation in these countries.

The documents speaks of transforming the current EU system and commits to the deliverance of a global governing body.

EU Foreign Policy Cheif Federica Mogherini writes in the Foreword:

We will invest in regional orders, and in cooperation among and within regions. And we will promote reformed global governance, one that can meet the challenges of this 21st century. We will engage in a practical and principled way, sharing global responsibilities with our partners and contributing to their strengths. We have learnt the lesson: my neighbour’s and my partner’s weaknesses are my own weaknesses. So we will invest in win-win solutions, and move beyond the illusion that international politics can be a zero-sum game.

The latest plan outlines how the EU wants autonomy in defense and security matters.

“European security and defence efforts should enable the EU to act autonomously while also contributing to and undertaking action in co-operation with NATO,” the Brussels document reads.

Member States need the technological and industrial means to acquire and sustain those capabilities which underpin their ability to act autonomously.

It goes on to read, “Gradual synchronisation and mutual adaption of national defence planning cycles and capability development practice can enhance strategic convergence between Member States.”

When asked if he believed the document showed Brussels was positioning itself as a rival to NATO, UKIP’s Mike Hookem said: “I’m not sure whether in reality it will be a threat to NATO.”

“Although I am sure it would like to be, because NATO are competent,” says Hookem.

The fear of a European army was at the core of the Brexit campaign as Armed Forces Minister Penny Mordaunt warned that if Britain were to stay in the EU, it would be forced to join the EU’s army.

According to reports from Brussels, the Global Strategy document was kept secret as the UK was preparing to hold a referendum on its EU membership out of fears that it could affect the outcome by boosting the “Leave” campaign’s popularity.

Several European politicians have recently voiced support for the creation of an EU army.

RT reports:

Meanwhile, EU officials repeatedly voiced the idea of forming the Union’s own armed forces. On June 26, the head of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, Elmar Brok, said that the EU needs a common military headquarters that could pave the way for a united EU armed force, which would make the block’s policy much more effective and strengthen its role in the world.

In 2015, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called for the creation of a united European army, which he said would be aimed at “deterring” Russia and strengthening the alliance.

    People who try to compare those who voted to leave the EU to Nazis should understand that the Nazis and the EU have exactly the same objective, to control Europe.
    It is only the means that differs.

    As soon as NATO is requested to become part of such an expansion policy, is the perfect time for Canada to exit the “Defense” organization. Using military power to aggressively promote European power is adoption of American devices. The EU does not need an empire to compete with the American empire. The only way to move forward in today’s World is to invite Russia into NATO and ask both Canada and the US to leave!

      After TTiP Europe will be a colony of the American Empire and will be behaving like a bunch of fascists anyway. All the EU needs to do is to conquer Libya and Tunisia and it will now be the same territory as the 3rd Reich.

    let us all stop kidding Ourselves, Barroso is not in charge of the EU, so let’s get that straight, next the EU is controlled by the USA as it was also created, And it will make no difference to NATO because it is American also, and that Is the real reason that the UK exited, because it is America’s way of trying to create world war three from a European perspective.

    The zioinsts that control every zentral bank are referred to on the boob tube as ‘special interests’. They seemingly have a hand in all this NWO crappopla.

    Can you say, “Rhodesia?”

    • Trac Mila

      What about Rhodesia?

      • Banknote

        Are you old enough to Remember The Belgian Congo? Rhodesia was the “slave name” for another European-colonized African country.
