5 year EU presidency would be as corrupt as permanent UN security council
The three states that supported in terrorist intervention into Iraq: UK, Italy and Spain are now trying to kill democracy in the European union by calling
for 5 year terms for EU presidents, rather than the current (well functioning and democratic) 6 month terms.
They (UK/Spain/Italy) would basically setup a little permanent security council
that would be directed, puppet style, by the 'special relationship' with
the US. "Do as we say or you're a terrorist state"
The EU should avoid this at all costs.
We do not want this kind of antidemocratic structure rising in Europe, stagnating progress, and promulgating US views into European affairs.
