Bash Emanuel #Macron all you want (he deserves it in many cases).

But can anyone really gainsay his claim that Europe needs a real army (and nuclear weapons) to be independent and sovereign and project power globally?
Under NATO, Europe features nation-states with legitimacy but no militaries or geopolitical power. The EU is a postmodern bureaucracy with little legitimacy, no real military, and only economic global power.
Macron--again, whatever you want to think of him otherwise--thinks geopolitically and actually offers a vision for an independent Europe.
European states can have geopolitical influence (of a sort) as NATO's pawns. Macron is looking ahead and offering a real advancement and alternative to the American unipolar world.
