According to this article in the Middle East Times, Europe is beginning a very real and substantial military buildup. Remembering Jacques Santer's old words as well as "John Boyd, Secretary" of the late 1990's, it may well be that the real purpose of this is to help dislodge the USA as a competing global superpower in the "coming 21st century struggle for control of scarce global resources. Javier Solana is still very much in charge and my educated guess is that it will remain this way. Looks like they are getting read to test the mettle of one who still naively believes in "our European Allies." Both present and future administrations are well plagued by this apparent lack of global vision.
