EUROPEAN SUPER STATE
UNVEILED: THE BLUEPRINT FOR UNITED STATES OF EUROPE
The Independent.co.uk reports: "The blueprint for a new constitution for Europe paves the way for sweeping changes to the EU but provoked instant British opposition by suggesting the bloc could be renamed United States of Europe.
Published by Valéry Giscard dEstaing, the former French president who is chairing an inquiry into the future of Europe, the document raises the prospect of a massive overhaul of the EU to accommodate up to 10 new countries due to join in 2004. It lists three possible titles besides the European Union. They are: European Community, the United States of Europe, and United Europe.
The outline document also suggests that all Europeans should be given the right to citizenship of the EU as well as their member states" (Antichrists global empire is forming Daniel 7:23; Revelation 13:7)
SOLANA: NEW EU PRESIDENT WOULDNT SOLVE THE PROBLEMS
The EU Observer reports: "The European Unions foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, sharply criticized the idea of creating a powerful president for the EU council. Britain and France have been lobbying for this proposal, hoping that a high profile president would make EU policies more visible and help to improve co-operation with the White House. Mr. Solana on the other hand stressed, that EU foreign policy problems run much deeper and they couldnt be solved only with new titles and personalities.
If this new architecture is just about empowering somebody to talk to President Bush well there should be better arguments than that, Mr. Solana said, according to the Financial Times. No matter who the EU president was, the prime ministers and presidents of member states will still want to go to Washington to see President Bush, he added.
Mr. Solana told the working group of the Convention that the EU needs a single voice on foreign policy most of all. In order to run a successful foreign policy the EU needs more political will, more continuity and more money" (He will come to power soon Revelation 13:1-7)
SOLANA: EUROPE TO BECOME A SUPER POWER
The EU Observer reports: "EU member states must realize the importance of their role in the World, said the EUs foreign policy chief, Javier Solana in an interview published by the German paper, Die Welt.
Mr. Solana has been three years in the difficult post as Secretary General of the Council of the European Union/High representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy. Over this period, the Spanish socialist, who is both a former Spanish foreign minister and a former Secretary-General of NATO, has coordinated the foreign affairs policies of the EU member states.
An enlarged EU with 25 member states would have double as many citizens as the U.S. and four times as many as Japan. We have no choice, we must play a role, Mr. Solana said in the interview. He referred to the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, who said two years ago that Europe would become A superpower, but not a super state.
Mr. Solana expressed his doubt about whether a new EU president would be able to succeed in coordinating the views of the different EU member states.
I have my doubts, whether an artificial created post, of which the outline is not yet clear, would be able to contribute to any solution, Mr. Solana said and characterized the debate as being still at an embryonic stage.
He declared the six-monthly rotating EU presidencies as inefficient, especially when it comes to foreign affairs policy. However he failed to come up with any concrete alterative proposal. I am not sure what will be the best solution, he said" (Many believe the Antichrist will arise out of Spain Solanas nation Daniel 7:8,20,24)
