T-F-E: The Future of The European Union

Throughout history various figures have longed for countries to be united under a one flag, one banner, one people ideology and have experimented with this idea and for the short while all these unions lasted but all eventually ended in bloodshed and disaster when one or more country/countries decide to perform the act of secession (withdrawing from an organisation, union, or especially a political entity).

The European Union Is a collective group that is seeking to bring Europe (Although countries such as Turkey are now being considered) together under one banner, Replacing the flag of such countries as Germany, Italy, France, The UK, The Netherlands with nothing more than one of a few yellow/gold stars on a dull blue background and due to a country's aspects and individuality being held in its flag the EU is effectively whitewashing European countries history, culture and national identity by replacing it in this way.

The burning of the EU flag
When a country joins the EU, I will use for example the UK, The UK's laws, Policies, money and decisions are decided by European judges and politicians effectively stripping the power and individuality from countries as they go. That UK then has to pay the EU a huge gross each year (Currently the European Union costs the UK £65 billion gross every year, this amount is set to rise)

The European Union introduced the “Euro” currency which is now on the brink of collapse and has plunged the majority of European countries into debt.

Unions in history that have ended in war and revolt due to secession:

Belgium and the NetherlandsOn August 25, 1830, during the reign of William I, the nationalistic opera La muette de Portici was performed in Brussels. Soon after, the Belgian Revolt occurred, which resulted in the Belgian secession from the Netherlands.

In 1974 the Turkish Army invaded northern Cyprus to protect the interests of the ethnic Turkish minority, who in the following year formed the Turkish Federate State of Cyprus and in 1983 declared independence as the Republic of Northern Cyprus, recognised only by Turkey.

Two southern republican states seceded from Brazil in 1835. Defeated in the War of the Farrapos, they returned in 1845.

In 1960 the State of Katanga declared independence from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. United Nations troops crushed it in Operation Grand Slam.

North Yemen and South Yemen merged in 1990; tensions led to a 1994 southern secession which was crushed in a civil war.

Chechnya has fought off Russian colonisation as far back as the Ottoman empire, but we will use the recent conflicts for the example.  In 1922 Chechnya was incorporated into Bolshevist Russia and later into the Soviet Union (USSR). In 1991 as the Soviet union dissolved Chechnya declared its Independence from Russia, Russian troops were dispatched to Chechnya by the Russian leader Yeltsin as the situation worsened small armed skirmishes broke out and eventually spilled over into all out heavy conflict with one of the worst battles of the war being the struggle of capturing Grozny (Chechnya’s capital) Between 1991 and 2009 brutal atrocities occurred and harsh battles were fought as Chechnya tried to break away from Russia in two wars, The death toll is unconfirmed and rises wildly, A top official in Chechnya's pro-Kremlin government said on 15 August that up to 160,000 troops and civilians have died or gone missing in the two wars waged by Russia against Chechen separatist rebels, Chechnya (once a booming industrial centre, Chechnya is now a forgotten country, destroyed and in ruins: A sad and shameful example of when unions fail.

Yugoslavia (The major point)On June 25, 1991, Croatia and Slovenia seceded from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Others followed, the federation collapsed, and the remaining country, comprising Serbia and Montenegro, was renamed to Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Several bloody, bitter and brutal civil wars and conflicts ensued between FR Yugoslavia and seceding entities and among other ethnic groups in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and later, Kosovo. Many atrocities were committed by both sides, Montenegro peacefully separated from its union with Serbia in 2006. Kosovo declared independence on February 17, 2008, and was recognised by several dozen countries, but remains under United Nations administration. In the once united Yugoslavia, when a state seceded mass conflict on an epic scale broke out, friends killed friends, neighbours killed neighbours, I fear this will be the outcome of an even more powerful European union.

The military of the European Union today comprises the several national armed forces of the Union's 27 member states, as the policy area of defence has remained primarily the domain of nation states. European integration has however been deepened in this field in recent years, with the framing of a Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) branch for the Union's Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) as well as the creation of separate international forces revolving around the EU's defence. A number of CSDP military operations have been deployed in recent years.

In 10 or so years when the EU has even more countries in its honey trap and billions of currency at their disposal do you really think they would let one of "their" countries perform secession and lose that countries power, Military, industry and most importantly, Money?

Unions do not work and throughout history never have! Do not trust the EU and do not fly their flag, By replacing your countries flag you are whitewashing your history, betraying your nation and killing Your culture and replacing it with the banner of Europe's elite!

Countries in the EU: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
