The divisions seem to be sharpening within the EU. The Belgians have now announced a three nation summit on closer defense integration between Belgium, Germany and France. The UK, the country with the EU’s strongest armed forces, is not invited. While military co-operation between the corrupt, the pacifist and the shamelessly opportunist might not seem to be of much concern, this is a reminder of the power play now proceeding in Brussels. Tony Blair may not wish to decide between a more deeply integrated Europe and the US, but some EU member states seem intent in forcing just such a choice.
