If you read enough about the EU and recent developments it becomes obvious that big changes are on the way - changes that are completely consistent with what we would expect as we continue the march to the Tribulation.
Two video summaries make this point.
The first is the latest update from Hal Lindsey and it is definitely worth watching:
Empires Rise and Fall
And this video (below) looks at the astonishing developments in the EU as we see central bankers taking over countries (Greece and Italy) who have never been elected and their "appointments" were made under questionable circumstances:
Dictators by Nature...EU Enters Death Agony
It is tempting to focus solely on the Middle East and Israel in our prophecy watching, but the current developments and changes in the Roman Empire of our age are equally important and equally worth watching.
The "revived" Roman Empire is very much part of biblical "end times" prophecy, and the developments we are seeing in the EU are exactly what we would expect to see: more central control and power, more unelected officials, continual growth, more changes to their "treaty" (don't forget, a true "constitution" was voted down by three countries making it unattainable, so the Lisbon Treaty was enacted instead; a treaty that did not require citizens of the various EU countries to 'approve'), condemnation of Israel, and a central currency, just to name a few.
Now we are seeing two countries taken over by unelected 'leaders' - leaders who are favorable to the central currency and the Eurozone.
If we keep watching, we may even see the beginnings of the final stage of the EU - the long awaited "10 Kings" stage - the stage of development which will produce the antichrist and world rule.
