Brexit has already had dramatic geopolitical consequences. This is the first one: an independent Europe logically leading to the demise of NATO. Meanwhile “independence day”, as you might expect, means for Britain an even deeper integration into the US security sphere.
Berlin and Paris will push for closer military ties with EU member states, the German defense minister said, adding that the long-contended issue was let loose by UK’s vote to leave the bloc. It comes as Germany is looking for a new global role for its military.
