It all sounds great but the truth is EU is fooked, as such. None of this will really matter in the greater scheme. Greed, and disconnected power(bankers), and Europe on the slide not able to compete with Asia, or SAmerica. Europe is scrambling to get more attached to the balance of power(Asia), and detach from the increasingly mad, desperate US. Whilst vulture, mad, resourced, tooled up Russia represents the world's wild card. Meanwhile the Middle East is, well, in the middle. With oil.
How long before China gets dragged in to a conflict that America will start with the Middle East, and Russia will dive into whilst trying to play all sides? Europe will perhaps merely be a place to launch attacks from/in.
