New Power In Europe

Europe is changing. It's becoming at the same time something very new, and something very ancient - a unified political, economic, and military superpower that will be patterned after a great European empire of the past.

Euro Fighter The political unification is well underway. Many new all-Europe laws and regulations have already come into effect, and many more are not far behind. Economically, the new European monetary unit, the Euro, is now in the process of replacing many of the traditional currencies (francs, marks etc) of Europe. Much is also now being done in the military sector, including joint operations between forces of different nations, and development of the new highly-advanced Eurofighter (in photo).

The world will soon have two military superpowers again - the United States of America, and the European Union. Each will operate within its own sphere, which means that U.S. forces that have been in Europe for so long will all be coming home. Europe owes very much to the American military in the twentieth century, but with the threat of a communist invasion now gone, and a unified Europe more than powerful enough to handle its own security, the writing is on the wall.

A few recent quotes from Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain and President Jacques Chirac of France regarding the military role of the new Europe, not just on the European continent, but anywhere in the world -

  • "Britain and France on Friday took a historic step toward building a European defence arm without America, calling in a joint statement for the European Union to forge the capacity for autonomous action."

  • "the first step in a bid to enable Europe to engage in crisis management or in missions in parts of the world where Washington is unwilling to commit troops."

  • "The European Union must have the capacity for autonomous action, backed up by credible military forces, the means to decide to use them, and a readiness to do so, in order to respond to international crises."

  • "The EU needs to be in a position to play its full role on the international scene."

  • "Today, the EU's greatest challenge on the international scene ... is to affirm a foreign policy and defence capacity that the Europeans can set into motion themselves"

One of the greatest ironies of the above statements is that some of them came from a British prime minister. Bible prophecy makes clear that Britain will not remain in the European Union. See The Keys To Prophecy
