By a Symbolic Coincidence, "Eurofora" was launched practicaly at the Eve of the European Year for "Creativity and Innovation", as EU named 2009.
 Despite some Earlier Publications, and a subsequent Emergence later on, in fact, Historicaly, the 1st real NewsReport of "Eurofora" was published on-line at the Beginning of August 2008, from Brixen-Bressanone city, at South Tirol Region, located in Northern Italy, between the Alpes Mountains and the Dolomiten High-Rise Peaks, when the then Pope Benedict launched an Urgent Call for European Leaders to Act in order to Prevent a new and even more Tragic and Destructive, Division of Europe, which might obviously had even pushed towards a wider World War, from the fast unfolding Clash between Georgia and Russia of then Presidents Shakaasvili and Medvedev, around the pro-Autonomy, break-away Abkhazia and  South Ossetia Regions of former USSR but in nowadays Georgia, reportedly Attacked by Tbilisi's National Army, which had already made even Civilian Victims, provoked Destructions, Military clashes, etc., Triggering a Russian Counter-Offensive which reportedly threatened to arrive near Tbilisi. German Chancelor Merkel was, then, visiting a Nearby Village, apparently keeping in contact with her compatriot, former Cardinal and Theologian Writer Joseph Ratzinger, while the then French President Sarkozy, who Chaired at that time the EU, took a Risky but notoriously Succesful Diplomatic Initiative, which led him both to Moscow and Tbilisi, almost Immediately, from the Afternoon/Evening of that Same Day, August 10, finaly SafeGuarding Peace in Europe and in the World, (http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/irish/benepeace.html ).
Previously, "Eurofora" had also Published certain Original News, but very Selectively : Fex. on a Superb Historic Exhibition of Artworks about Strabourg and the Rhenan European area at the Renaissance, (http://www.eurofora.net/faqs/elxis-cms/expo-golden-age.html ),  as well as on the non less Historic, former Prime Minister of France, long-time Strasbourg's Mayor, and EU Parliament's, as well  as CoE's PanEuropean Assembly's former President, Pierre Pflimlin, on the occasion of the Oress Conference which launched a n original Book written in his Honour by French Senator Jung, long-time f. Director of Strasbourg's Newspaper DNA, Alain Howiller, and one among the First EU Parliament's Press Directors, the experienced Paul Collowald.
A main point of the latter, was an abstract from the Last, landmark Speech that President Pflimlin had given at what was then the joint Plenary Room of both the PanEuropean CoE and EU Parliament, in Strasbourg, (attended also by "Eurofora"s co-Founder), back on 1997, which Focused on the Basis on which the European Dream could be succesfully  re-Launched and further Developed in the Future, (http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/irish/pflimlin.html ).

Last, but not least, "Eurofora"s progressive Launch also Topically came just Before the Start of the pre-electoral period for the Crucial EU Parliament's Elections of May 2009, (Comp., among others, f.ex., also : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/daulelections.html ).

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).




        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.


        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.


     The Committee, chaired by Vogaw, will hear, next week in Strasbourg an Experts' view about on the French EU Chairmanship's priorities in ESDP on Wednesday, before President Sarkozy's plenary debate, exceptionally on Thursday.


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
