A leading British think tank says it will become harder for the UK to translate its influence on European security and military commitment into political influence after Brexit, warning it should not use its role as the leading West European military and intelligence power as a bargaining chip.Wow. I see even the UK suffers from Think Tank idiocy and Globalist fantasy. They have ONE bargaining chip and that is their military and intelligence supremacy in comparison to many European countries. To think that they WOULDN'T use that is insanity.
A new report from think tank the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) says the temptation to use the UK's "security surplus" — its role as the leading West European military and intelligence power — as a bargaining chip should be resisted.
The main complaint that RUSI makes is that the creation of a European Army is going to probably happen and that the UK will be frozen out of meetings in which security policy etc is being discussed.
That's a small price to pay for freedom from bureaucrats in Brussels. Besides, EU fanboys think that a European Army will solve all problems but all it will do is allow the US to fully disengage from Europe. Make an EU Army and NATO dies. The US can fully say "ok, you guys got this" and pull out.
I would cheer such a result.
