Well, the Regia Marina could throw a huge monkey wrench into the EU's gears if they began to aggressively patrol their waters to deny access to the seaborne invasion from North Africa.

Just imagine if all those smugglers and NGO ships were forced westwards towards France and Spain.

Would Macron then change the demands for a European "Army" to a European "Navy"? ;)

That is what already happened: Shunned by Italy, Migrants at Sea Arrive in Spain. Macron claimed to play the moral high ground with Italy about the refugees, but when someone asked to France if they are ready to welcome the boat, the French said no, so the boat went to Spain. Do you say hypocrite?

MADRID — Spain’s governing Socialist party suffered an unexpected election setback on Sunday as right-wing parties won enough votes to oust the Socialists from power in the nation’s largest region for the first time since the country returned to democracy.

The result in Andalusia was a blow to Pedro Sánchez, Spain’s Socialist prime minister, who has been in office since June and could now be forced into a snap general election next year.

"Far Right" . . . that means they are "not Chavez-adoring Commies," right?
