Churchill, Kaiser Wilhelm, and a "United States of Europe" (John Heelan, -UK, 10/23/17 4:32 am)

Just a slight correction to José Ignacio Soler (22 October).

Churchill actually promoted a "United States of Europe" in his speech at the University of Zurich, Switzerland (9 September 1946), preferring the "unionist" position rather the "federalist position" preferred by Monet and his successors.

Churchill (and Monet and today's EU institutions) perhaps overlook the thought of Kaiser Wilhelm II when he said, "the hand of God is creating a new world and working miracles. ... We are becoming the United States of Europe under German leadership, a united European Continent." And "If a British parliamentarian comes to sue for peace, he must first kneel before the imperial standard, for this is a victory of monarchy over democracy."

The EU institutions are making "Kaiser Bill's" words come true.

JE comments:  I was curious, and the Kaiser's words were actually those of an ex-Kaiser.  The first statement was made in 1940, from Wilhelm's Dutch exile, in the wake of the German blitzkrieg.  The second quote must have come much earlier, when the German monarchy still existed.  (The Kaiser died in 1941 when Germany was still riding high in the war.  Did he feel vindicated on his deathbed?)

Just to clarify:  Churchill's "USE" was not to include Britain, correct?
