The European Union will soon be adding 10 more nations with over 75 million citizens bringing its total membership to 25 with a population of over 450 million. If all goes to plan, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Solvenia will become part of the EU family in only 17 months time. With their accession, the EU will reach the vaguely defined border lands of old Europe.
But, concerning future admissions, there are differing opinions as to which countries should be allowed and whether or not those outside of traditional Europe should be allowed to join at all, with some saying that Turkey, Russia, and the Ukraine should definitely not be allowed in. Turkey is especially troublesome in their eyes due to its Muslim majority.
British sources point out, though, that Turkeys history is inseparable from Europes whether one looks back to the ancient Greeks or to the subsequent Rome, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. The Romans, who ruled Europe for centuries, called the Mediterranean our sea and there is no reason to think any differently now.
So with the possible inclusion of North African nations in the not-to-distant future, one can see a revived Roman Empire definitely taking shape. The Sunday Times
