“Betrayal is the only truth that sticks.”
Arthur Miller
After our hopelessly bungled Afghan withdrawal, proposals for an “EU Army” re-emerge, in earnest!
Anxious Europeans are now talking openly about forming an “EU Army,” completely independent of Washington DC.
Western and Eastern European nations have lost all confidence in the USA. Speaking bluntly, these nations are convinced that they can no longer rely on the USA as a political and military partner.
“The need for more European defense has never been as much evident as today, after events in Afghanistan,” said EU foreign affairs representative, Josep Borrell
The precipitous fall of Kabul has been a wake-up call!
European nations, and the UK, were forced to hastily, haphazardly withdraw from Afghanistan with JRB’s sudden announcement and impossible timetable. Our allies depended on the USA for the safe evacuation of their troops and citizens.
They were betrayed!
They’re determined not to be put in that position again!
“The mistake was mine, for trusting you.”
