Non-alignment and neutralism in regard to the super-power interests does not mean pacifism and impotence. In the western European region for example, a military alliance technologically led by France, Germany and the UK, has the capabilities of launching and arming satellites, manufacturing and installing nuclear missiles and enhanced conventional and non-conventional weapons in sufficient quantities to assure the destruction of the homeland of any aggressor. Moreover, mutual defence treaties can be negotiated in a number of directions, including Latin America, Africa and Asia. It is interesting to recall the World War II alignment of Spain, Italy, Germany, Japan and their supporters elsewhere, for example, in Argentina, Egypt and eastern Europe. A third major power bloc is therefore possible in a western European led intercontinental alignment, but it is also achievable by a peaceful pan-European economic grouping in which high levels of cooperation are achieved between the EEC/EU, EFTs and CMES.
