In the last century Hitler brought Europe the Third Reich through military conquest and in the process WII and destruction. Today the conquest of Europe appears to be of a different sort but the effect may turn the EU into the German dominated Fourth Reich. Many in Europe are calling for Germany to take more control of the EU to help pull the EU out of this financial crisis. Even the Poles are pleading for German control. Jconline - Europe, facing abyss, embraces German might The use of military force in this age when there is a dominant force (USA) keeping the peace is gone. Conquest today is through economic and political means and the original fear of Germany taking over the EU and essentially making the EU a greater Germany appears to be possible and thereby the rise of the Fourth Reich. What does this mean for the US?
