    There's a start. PESCO.

    Defense and foreign ministers from 23 European Union countries signed up to a plan to establish the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO), which will allow countries to cooperate more closely on security operations and building up military capability.

    EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini described the signing of PESCO as a "historic moment in European defense."

    "This is the beginning of a common work - 23 member states engaging both on capabilities and on operational steps, that's something big," Mogherini said.

    PESCO sounds like the name of a mafia informant and will probably last roughly the same length of time.
