Not least among these is a Franco-German proposal that would see EU representations and embassies around the world (the European Commission already has offices in 130 countries). As planned, these Union diplomats would report to a European Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Peter Hain, British representative to the EU constitutional convention, recently said: “If George W. Bush wants to phone Europe, he speaks to the President of the Council (of Europe). If Colin Powell wants to, then he dials the new foreign representative.” But those who know President Bush will tell you that he is far more likely to contact individual European national leaders directly.

Nonetheless, it is true that Bible prophecy shows that some of these Franco-German imperial dreams will undoubtedly come to fulfillment. (Source: The Times [London].)
