Но вот тут начинается интересное. Дело в том, что организация Брюссельского Соглашения никуда не делась, НАТО натой, а Брюссель Брюсселем. Мало того, через несколько лет организация выросла и окрепла, в 1954 году Европа приняла в Европу своих блудных дочерей Германию и Италию. После чего организация сменила вывеску и стала называться Западноевропейский Союз (Western European Union, WEU). Тут опять же может возникнуть вопрос а зачем нам немцы? Мы же вроде объединялись против них, зачем они нам тут, а не там? Да вот затем, именно потому, что «здесь вам не тут!» НАТО даёт возможность англичанам иметь фактически оккупационные войска в Германии, бывшую Рейнскую Армию, называемую сегодня British Forces Germany (BFG). Но, как мы уже чуть повыше сказали, НАТО натой и мало ли чего с ней может случиться, там, в конце концов Америка заправляет, но зато принятием Германии в WEU Англия добилась вот чего так как французы смертельно боялись немцев и их Национальное Собрание отказывалось ратифицировать расширение WEU, то англичане «гарантировали», что в целях удержания немецкой милитаристской угрозы они разместят в континетальной Европе четыре дивизии и несколько соединений тактической авиации
