14. Well, NATO leaders already "control my country's destiny".

You want done with NATO, too?

Our "nuclear deterrent" wouldn't function without the US, so we don't have a whole bunch of control over that either.

I'm pretty sanguine about the idea of a European Army. Despite the myths, the EU setup's actually more democratic than the UK on a number of issues. I can't see it being a major aggressively interventionist force simply because of the number of actors who'd have to agree on any course of action. And the Germans ceased being a serious boogeyman beyond the fringe quite a while back.
