French President Macron is correct that the EU needs their own national military! Unfortunately for Macron the EU is up to their eyeballs in debt and withdrawing from their international military (NATO) would require a nationalistic political will that does not exist. The EU can do one or the other, it can’t do both. Eventually the USA will come to this same conclusion. America can either defend itself in the East or the West but not both. Over time the US will continue to move its increasingly limited military assets to the Pacific. Ironically the sooner the EU embraces military nationalism the safer it will make the world for Democracy!
