Right so lets see the US or the UK give up it army first. The EU is absolutely entitled to defend it's interests just like the US or the UK whether you like it or not. Any argument you make for one retaining or not having an army is valid for all three.

The idea of the EU depending on two countries that would prefer it did not exist makes it all the more important that it has a military capability (approved), a border guard (approved), coast guard (approved) and intelligence agency (under discussion) and so on. And the more we see of Trump the more likely the intelligence capability will be approved too.
Anyone would think the EU was a nation state...
