The problem is that this isn't the objective of most of the people who make up the member countries of the EU. The very people who the EU are supposed to serve.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is. It is exactly what is stated in the treaties that the member states are committed to, it what the majority of voters voted for in parliamentary elections - parties that support a more integrated EU, it's why they have Junker as head of the commission and until the people actually vote for something different it is how it will remain.

This is progressing, regardless of how you feel about it. Even the neutral members such as Sweden, Finland and Ireland are participating, take a look at the Nordic Battle Group. And I seem to remember reading somewhere, that Irish troops were conducting training exercise with the Finish army along the Russian border this winter.
