Even a European Army maybe. Now, as it is, the leaders of the member states are sovereign, not the EU nations: the leaders can take wrong and even criminal decisions and as a response Europe is punishing their people. The example of Greece is clear: some leaders hidden for years the country official debt that thrown the whole continent in crisis and instead the entire Greek nation is punished. If FBI existed only, nobody would dare even to do such things.
It is so simple, but why the European FBI do not exist ? Well, this is the biggest problem because the leaders like to remain untouchable. They say, “if the EU rules would be broken – no problem, we will deal with the issue in each country”. But braking the EU laws and also the EU principles could not be a nation’s competence ! It’s so simple, we don’t have to invent anything.

A monetary union of a major economic block and no central bank to speak of and you are concerning yourself with inanities. Why don’t you deal with the real issues first. The EU was expanded and the Euro created for the sole purpose of enabling the rich in every country to enhance their economic power. Distinguishing between nationalities to assign blame is nothing more than propaganda. Note that the first European bank to go under because of subprime mortgages was IKB Deautsche Industriebank (Aug.2007). Yes, an effing German bank. And where was the mighty,sanctimonious Bundesbank when the fraud was being perpetrated.
The day will come when this financial crisis will be deemed a major crime against humanity and the people responsible will be brought to account, and I am saying this thinking of Detroit’s pensioners who apparently have to fend for themselves because of huge losses due to investments in real estate derivatives. I wonder who was advising the City of Detroit and who was advising the Greek government,yes, Greece, where it is the pensioners who are paying the highest price for this mess. Shall I go on to Portugal and Spain.Or shall I start on ING, the bankrupt Dutch bank,that recently incorporated and listed its U.S. subsidiary separately, so that at least the NYSE listed shares would show some life.
