The Belgian Prime Minister Verhofstadt sent a letter to Chirac (France) and Blair (U.K.) urging them to work on the European Defence Army as too become less dependt on the U.S. Military forces. Chirac and Blair did not go into this suggestion, or in other words, ignored him. Even though I think this letter was pure hypocracy from Verhofstadt (seeing as he let's our own army fall behind so much it isn't funny. They only thing we can do internationally now is transport, compared to France and the U.K. we are far behind already, not too mention the USA.) I still think he has a point. Europe should invest more in it's defence forces. Right now most of the world doesn't take Europe seriously, even though they have good points they do not have the means too make it stick. I hope Verhofstadt thinks about investing in our army too instead of soley urging others to invest in theirs. And I'd like to remind him that our B-fast troops are not enough by a long shot. Your opinion?
