UK blocks EU military unit in wording spat
A senior EU diplomat said the text has already been altered to accommodate London’s wishes. New EU unit would be responsible for EU training missions in Africa.

The U.K. is standing in the way of the creation of an EU military unit because it objects to use of the words “operational HQ,” according to EU diplomats.
The EU wants to set up a Military Planning and Conduct Capabilities (MPCC) unit, which would be responsible for EU training missions in Somalia, Mali and Central African Republic. Political agreement on setting up the unit was reached in March and officials are drafting legal documents ahead of meetings of EU foreign ministers on Monday and of defense ministers on Thursday.
However, Britain won’t give its backing unless the wording is changed. Approval needs unanimity.
For some countries, including Germany, France and Italy, the MPCC is a small step toward the creation of an EU military HQ. The U.K. and Poland have made it clear that they do not want EU operational headquarters (although Poland is not publicly backing the U.K. over the wording spat).
London says this is not a veto and that its position is not linked to the general election taking place on June 8, diplomats say. But not everyone shares that view. A senior EU diplomat said the text has already been altered to accommodate London’s wishes but the U.K line has not changed as a result. “It’s clearly part of the pre-election game,” he said.
The MPCC, which would be based in Brussels, would plan and conduct EU security missions — but not all of them. Instead, it would take charge of what are known in EU jargon as “non executive” missions, which means they have only an advisory role and not a mandate to conduct actions instead of the host nation.
YES we are continuing to see these steps towards the EU having it’s own ARMY and COMMAND CENTRE. The UK has block all attempts to establish this, but this want last as BREXIT takes effect. So keep watching this development as the EU will eventually have it’s own Army. This move once again is in perfect alignment with Bible Prophecy which has foretold 2500 years ago. The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice. Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army. Again it’s interesting that they see the development of a EU Army as an important next step.
So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.
This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East. Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”. Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days. So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe. It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.
Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
