EU has military ambitions


The European Union is planning to “own and operate” spy drones, the Daily Telegraph reported on Friday.

The proposal is considered controversial … and surveillance satellites and “a major move” toward establishing an independent EU military, writes Bruno Waterfield in his blog:

The use of the new spy drones and satellites for “internal and external security policies,” which will include police intelligence, the internet, protection of external borders and maritime surveillance, will raise concerns that the EU is creating its own version of the US National Security Agency.
