Well it was technicly an economical orginization when it started but now it is turning into some odd Confederation, Some of the members are even calling for a Fast Action Force to be built under EU control.

The german economy is slowing down, with unemployment rising etc. The british economy is apparently the strongest/most stable in the EU! Germany doesnt have nukes, but as numerous people have stated the EU would fight together so they cannot be looked at individually apart from maybe britain and france as they operate alone more than any of the other EU countries! They are the only ones to have carriers and nuclear subs in europe as well that are in a fully operational fleet as although russia has more of them (nukes/subs) they are in a poorly maintained fleet!

Britian and France do have a few differences, but personnely I just think it all stems from the fact they hate each other guts deep down inside. Ever since the 1700's and 1800's they havn't been the best of buddies.

Italy..they haven't had anything decent since the Romans. I know they had a powerful navy during WW2 but they didn't have a good land force.

They might have rebuilt it's army but I would not vote for them though, I might be wrong.

I'm thinking the U.K.

I don't think Russia's internal politics could stand a war against the U.K. and Germany couldn't win agaist the U.K. because it doesn't have a navy to speak of.

It is quite surprising that Russia has made a better showing in this poll, notwithstanding their current more weakened status. Despite all their internal messes, they still have a very strong influence throughout the international community. They still have the second largest nuclear stockpile in the planet. Militarily, they are probably still stronger (with what they can have available very quickly) than any other European nation.

UK because of it's joined at the hip ties to the US. I would have to Go with Germany as a close second. About one quarter of my reasons are about military strength, the rest is Trade and Government stability.

I also consider UK as the strongest country in Europe, as it has the best military might there!

But France is close too!
