EU Council President Tells Europe To Get Ready for War

March 19, 2024 (EIRNS)—Charles Michel, President of the EU Council, declared in Brussels yesterday that Europe must be war ready and must shift to a “war economy…. We have also stepped up on the military manufacturing front. Europe’s defense industry has ‘ramped up’ its production capacity by 50% since the start of the war, and we will double ammunition fabrication to over 2 million shells yearly, by the end of next year.” He is considering expanding the European Investment Bank mandate to support the war industry. Michel’s message: “If we want peace, we must prepare for war.”
