Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
E U = Economic Union. That's what it is. Nothing else.
Ok I know its European Union but it really hasn't much of the power ...even economically. All though it's nice wish...dream...whatever.

Not only that, apparently even the proposed EU constitution is a step back from the Treaty on European Union:
As regards the decision-making process, the Commission will not have the power to submit proposals in CFSP matters. The Council of Ministers continues to decide by unanimous vote in most cases and the Member States will have the right of veto. Compared with the EU Treaty, the Constitution limits the CFSP instruments, restricting them to European decisions and international agreements. The use of legislative instruments such as European laws and framework laws is excluded.
