EU's stupidity could bring civil war to its borders

In a silly puff piece for the Tories in the Speccy, by a scribe I didn't bother to identify, it's claimed as a British triumph the we persuaded the EU to develop 'wider' rather than 'deeper', i.e. to expand membership rather than consolidate integration. This is patently nonsensical; it's in the EU's genes to do both, and any expectation that one will exclude the other is naive to say the least. There are no limits to the arrogance, stupidity and hubris of Brussels when it comes to increasing its power.

The EU bought Ukraine an engagement ring, spoke to the vicar about booking the church and even started help look through the wedding dress catalogues, deaf to the warnings and opposition of the bride's father. He'll come around, they wheedled, just give him time. The EU led them right up the aisle - hoping a cheap brass curtain ring would pass for a wedding band with some sort of 'associate' status. And hoping the bride's father would continue to feed, clothe and house her at considerable expense all the while. 

Brussels can hardly claim to be surprised at events now occurring in the Ukraine. Events that may rapidly degenerate into a vicious civil war right on the EU's eastern border. Preventing this will take the UN, the United States, the IMF and all the efforts of Europe's sovereign States and their experienced foreign ministries. All to remedy the power-hunger and imbecility of the EU's unelected officials. To secure Europe's peace and security, the power of the antidemocratic Commission must be broken; if we don't, the EU remains the greatest threat to peace in Europe.

its too expensive for the eu to pay the price in euros avoiding a civil war will cost, the really interesting thing is that the neo nazis of western europe now have a beacon and a war. The focus isnt about the east-the east is stable- the question is what in western europe will be drawn to the light of this pandoras box opening, will we have skinhead jihadists returning to sweden, germany and the uk with skills in urban warfare.
Western ukraine is as delusional and dangerous as a starving 14 year old paranoid schizophrenic with keys to the gun cupboard and weak and desperate enough to be used by any party that wants an excuse for world war three.

The EU obviously isn't satisfied with the one Crimean War we had in the 19th century.

They want another one in the 21st.

I take your point about meddlesome EU paper pushers believing that they are latter day Roman Emperors - indeed so.

And then, you mention diplomacy and mitigation neither of these will be possible methinks until 'Ivan' has had his day in the killing fields - because this one has miles to run yet.

"their experienced foreign ministries"

Oh NO - not on your nelly.

HMG FCO - our lot gave in to PC, Araby and Islamic apologizing - and mentally deranged EU fantasists since the 1950's.
Mr. Hague, sees the world through this FCO-appeasement-pinko version of Obama, who is all things to all men and tells, "there will be dire consequences - I can't think of any at the moment but there might be, if, when, sometimes soon buddy".

Then, Britain's armed forces cannot provide any sort of major back-up/peace keeping role and Germany has no army with the French armed forces are almost non existent - weak and small national armies......which ironically was at the behest of Brussels - what goes around, comes around.

Thus is, the EU full of bluster, sabre rattling, sometimes jingoistic [think Syria] but know it well; as powerless, witless and clueless as a new born - for it was planned that way.

The two nations have to be sundered like the Czech republic and Slovakia - not perfect but better than the alternative.

Surely that great crusader for democracy, Baroness Ashton can bring her great experience of diplomacy and insights into foreign affairs to solve the crisis...

Clever and apt analogy.

The Sunday Telegraph also claims that Putin cannot afford a dispute with the West.

It's hard to see what they mean; do they think he's afraid of our military might? (See comment above!); or do they not realise that he controls the energy supplies of half the EU countries?

Seems to me Putin can do whatever he wants.

We should stop buying Russian natural gas. It's only 25% of EU's supply! That would worry Putin.............

G. Tingey said...

All too true, but ...
Only part of the picture, The other part is that Putin is an arrogant, authoritarian bullying shit ( ex-KGB, after all, why should we be surprised?)

I just hope the current leadership in Ukraine have more sense & flexibility than either of the previous two, who between them, managed to get in to this mess.
