Re: Benito Jonsolini

I see your attempt at drawing a parallel between the EU and the Nazis by using some unrelated quotes, and I raise you a paragraph from the founding document of the European Coal and Steel Community, the precursor organization to the EU:

"...these proposals will bring to reality the first solid groundwork for a European Federation vital to the preservation of world peace."

and

"... our joint action will make it plain that any war between France and Germany becomes not only unthinkable but materially impossible."

Unfortunately for your attempt at revisionism, the EU was the first multinational organisation founded for the explicit purpose of preventing war in Europe. Hardly surprising, as it came immediately after the death of some 70 million people. But hey, that was 80 years ago so I'm sure any lessons we learned can be safely forgotten.
