Calls for establishing a EU Commissioner for Defense have been made for quite a while, and some are now looking to the new European Commission that will be created after the European elections in June, to concretize it.

According to Politico, there are already two candidates: Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski and former Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas. Coincidentally, both are warmongers. Sikorski became a British subject in 1987 after being granted asylum in 1982 (which he renounced when he became Defense Minister in 1992), an intimate friend of Foreign Secretary David Cameron, and was a key pusher of the Eastward expansion of NATO along with former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt, whereas Kallas’ mother and grandmother were deported to Siberia. Kallas recently drew international attention for removing hundreds of monuments devoted to Lithuania’s Soviet liberators from Nazism in World War II.
