Have we joined the yellow press to gain readership? No but maybe we got your attention. However, we do see the potential for civil war within the EU. Consider a few things.
Last November we posted an article: The Future of Europe. It was a commentary on the proposal of for the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) which as we noted was:
In short, an unelected and nonrepresentational body, which with its officials would be completely above any law, would have an unlimited claim on the finances of a member country.
We also captured a some remarks of Angel Merkel’s:
- Nobody should take for granted another 50 years of peace and prosperity in Europe … that’s why I say: If the euro fails, Europe fails.
- We have a historical obligation: To protect by all means Europe’s unification process begun by our forefathers after centuries of hatred and blood spill. None of us can foresee what the consequences would be if we were to fail.
At the time we wondered if this was a veiled threat to use force on member countries to keep them in the union and subjugated to the dictates of an increasingly powerful and comprehensive European Union. For recent coverage listen to the KWN interview of Sept. 25 with Nigel Farage.
There is increasingly a move towards centralized fiscal control of EU members by an entire process of undemocratic advances in EU power. The enslavement mechanism is to force EU members to require and request EU bailout support at the cost of national fiscal independence. The nature of the bailout process is that it does not remove the debt burden of countries but perpetuates it at the cost of national and democratic control.
Greece and Spain in particular are in such desperate economic straits that they may face internal revolution. That is the point that we expect to see a pan-European paramilitary force intervene. What happens if the military seizes control in Greece as they have an historical tendency to do? Will they be pro or anti-EU and if the latter, will war ensue?
We think there is the possibility as the centralized control of nations progresses that there will be popular revolts leading to civil war. Will we see A second Spanish Civil War? How will NATO and particularly the North American members respond? AS we said, a possibility …
