EU cannot give military responses to political problems

Three key reports have moved through parliament’s security and defence subcommittee which represent an alarming approach to problems facing the European Union.
First, there is the implementation of the common security and defence policy (CSDP) report by Arnaud Danjean. This report, along with other key debates in parliament, takes the form of a ‘military wish list’ ahead of this June’s council meeting.
These reports demand enhanced armament cooperation, including the pooling and sharing of resources. This approach fosters the further development of a military industrial complex and supports the merging of civilian and military research in order to use civilian capabilities for military purposes.
