About that EU common foreign policy...

... there isn't any.

Helen Szamuely, who we all (should) know from EU Referendum, published a piece on the EU's (non-) handling of the situation around Israel and Lebanon, and their astonishing (lack of) action to safeguard security and a lasting peace...
Another international crisis - another failure on the part of the European Union. Undoubtedly, we shall be told again that this is a disaster for Europe and that next time the member states had better make some kind of an agreement that would show their strength in the world. The real truth is that this is never going to be a possibility, partly because of the structure of the EU and partly because there is no basis for an agreement. The clear answer is this ill-conceived attempt at a common foreign policy should be abandoned and the European countries work on defining their own national interests, forming alliances on the basis of that. Given the enemy we are fighting, this is becoming more and more vital.
