>wants to give example of strong multicultural, multi-lingual army
>gives Austrian-Hungarian army as example

This.

Most obvious modern example is Canada, and it's difficult enough with only two languages and you have stark divisions between French and English speaking units. Officers have to be bilingual too, which is just about possible. Just not feasible in an EU context unless you have an English speaking command structure all the way down to at least company level, plus highly regionalised recruitment.

For all the effort that'd require, and all the nationalist sentiment it'd cause, you're better off just using NATO interoperability and individual national contributions to an EU expeditionary force as and when required.
If we're being honest the Canadian military is basically comprised into two parts, a french speaking part and a bilingual part. The french get their owns units and bases, and everyone else still needs french for promotions.

This is where I step in. Join my personal army. Together we make Europes military great again!

My first order will be to construct 13 brand new aircraft-carriers and put tanks on it. Additionally I propose to develop a new technology that will allow us to launch airplanes from diving submarines. I also want to develop a helicopter that can drive on roads, so that it can use Germanys non existing speedlimit to quickly transport troops through central Europe.

I would also like to introduce you to my new military doctrine. I call it "burgerdonutsandwich" it revolves around the idea that exporting beer cans filled with C4 and remote detonators to foreign countries that we are not at war with, will make them more likely to join our side.

And by Olaf's rate of development we should have all that by the year 2176.

I think a combined EU military would be better at allocating resources then 27 independant ones.

So I don't think spending or manpower would be an issue I think the most major issue would be culture, langauge and obviously all the issues with merging militaries (like different systems etc).

I mean you already got the money from BCoF donation scam so quite a nice idea. I would like to add you should make an elite unit called Space Marines.

Yes, thats a great idea. Very fat obese people can sign up for the Space Marines. They will defeat the enemy by taking all the available space.

Why not just use the donation money to fund a political campaign and call it the 'Flying Squirrel'. I'd rather the money be used for that

Wow, Trump just pulled the US out of the Iran deal which is pretty major...WH has been briefing all day he'd stop short of doing that!

Looks to me like another nail in the coffin of America's informal empire (and I say that not as a leftie critic of imperialism but rather as an apt description). From TPP to Iran the US looks totally unreliable and untrustworthy.

Here's the hint that BCoF will never come out.

Oh yes, we certainly should not have left an agreement with the leading state sponsor of global terrorism.  I mean the terms were SO fantastic for us.  We give them pallets of money, and they lie about their nuclear program proceeding along.  Except now without international sanctions, it will be even easier for them. 

God this deal was so fire, i can't believe druhgmpf coulda done dis.

There were in depth checks which proved that Iran were complying with the deal. It’s also pretty hypocritical for an American to be bringing up terrorist sponsoring.

The deal is a necessary one. Would you rather a terrorist sponsoring government with Nukes to the one now? Because that’s what would have happened without the agreement.

Wait are you from Iran and did Iran left the deal,  because it seems like you are describing USA the leading state sponsor of global terrorism.
