A Rather Unlikely Group to be Arguing About “Enlargement”

The EU doesn’t have helicopter deficit disorder, it needs to grow a nutsack.

"It's frankly embarrassing that when European nations - with almost two million men and women under arms - are only able, at a stretch, to deploy around 100,000 at any one time", Mr Miliband said during a speech at the College of Europe in the Belgian city of Bruges on Thursday.

"European countries have around 1,200 transport helicopters, yet only 35 are deployed in Afghanistan. And EU member states haven't provided any helicopters in Darfur despite the desperate need there", he went on.
Even though it seems useless, I imagine he went on further.
