The European Union's planned border patrol will be too small and member states should contribute soldiers to build up a force to protect the bloc's external frontier, Czech President Milos Zeman said Sunday.Zeman said there were 20 times more smugglers than planned border personnel. He also said setting up the new force will take six months and that half a million refugees could reach the EU by the time it was in place.European Council President Donald Tusk warned last week that the EU had "no more than two months" to tackle the migration crisis engulfing the 28-nation bloc, or face the collapse of its passport-free Schengen zone.
