All those other European countries. No Ukraine, we know what would happen. Big Spain related thread already regarding Catalonia. There are other threads but with lots of little threads, the search engine doesn't seem to catch them all. So might be handy to have a general thread for all other Europe countries besides the ones represented by our highly respected and active contingents. The "Because, so and so country" content can probably fit here too since having lots of little threads for because Spain, because Poland, because Italy, that see little and gets left behind I thought. Because Scandinavia stands fairly well on its own. Merge it here or not, y'all are the judge. Might be neat to get some snippits from all these countries, even if at risk of hidden fueds.

Oh and..
Spoiler


Of course one can expect some derailments or discussions concerning these European countries and the other parties. For example, an Italian defense minister visited JS Izumo (or Kaga, forgot which) not long ago or Italy has a word with Brussels thus likely to involve Germany and EU in general so yeah of course. We are adults afterall, within reason ja :)


I thought about making a new thread since I didn't know a suitable place to put recent Italy news I thought worth getting attention. The bridge collapse (did get its own thread to be fair) but some serious flooding now, the election, GDP growth of 0% this quarter, and so on and it was either going to be a thread that gets forgotten and lost in time or buried in a thread that offers little breathing room from a dominant reoccuring target subject.

Some may think it is "fowl" to eat turkey in Turkey. With the world situation today I would not want to ruffle any feathers suggesting Turkey gobble turkey.

Speaking of the whole of Europe...

 

 

Emmanuel Macron calls for creation of a ‘true European army’ to defend against Russia and the US

The Independent

Emmanuel Macron has called for the creation of a “true European army” to allow the EU defend itself from threats ranging from Donald Trump to Vladimir Putin.

The French president has pushed for closer EU defence union since coming to power last year but has been so far met with limited success amid foot-dragging by other member states.

 
“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Mr Macron told France’s Europe 1 radio in an interview. “When I see President Trump announcing that he's quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security.” 
   
The French president continued: “We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army.

Sheesh...last year during the Holidays they disappeared. No doubt the smell of their brethren burning in ovens got them spooked.

There is precedent for a French-led pan-European Army. It did reasonably well for several years before those meddling English and sneaky Russians made a mess of it all.

And finished off by a late backstab by the Germans!

Been able to watch Greek news...some sort of kerfuffle with, of all places, Albania: An ethnic Greek in Southern Albania flew the Greek Flag over the gravesite of Greek Soldiers killed in 1940 during the Italian/Greek War. He decided that shooting at Albanian police with an AK was a 'prudent' thing to do & got shot & killed in return.

Meanwhile, an Albanian group filmed themselves shooting up a Greek flag with AKs and setting it on fire & making threats that they were gonna do the same to all of Greece--or something like that.
