MAASTRICHT, Netherlands - Europe should develop more common weapons to eliminate waste and duplication of effort, according to Jean-Claude Juncker, chief of the European Union's executive branch. He said Europe needs to streamline its defense industries and lessen dependence on the U.S. military for protection.

Juncker said Europe has 174 kinds of weapons when a single European helicopter and a single European tank would be enough.
