Brussels has always been the capital of the EU. It's stratigic because it's in the center of the EU, and because if a large country, like Germany, has the capital of the EU, France en the UK would be jalous

You both don't make any sense. Do you both know anything about NATO?

It's not the capital, it's the seat for some of the EU institutions (mainly commission and council of the EU, and part of the parliament) there are EU intsitutions in Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Strassbourg as well. The EU has never chosen a capital city. You wouldn't call New York City the capital of the world just because it houses the UN headquarters either.
It's a fun place to live though, and it's a shame that the EU's and NATO's bureaucratic reputation give Brussels a boring image.

The NATO headquarters used to be in Paris, untill Charles de Gaulle withdrew the French membership of the NATO military command and basically kicked them out of the country. Another city needed to be found, Belgium proposed Brussels, nobody objected, et voilla that's why they're here. It has nothing to do with the EU.

This is the old headquarters in Brussels btw. So it's not like it's new in Brussels like some of you like to believe. They are just getting a new building...
