Re: Benito Jonsolini @EvilDrSmith

I see your point, but think you give too much credit to the EU and it's precursors, while ignoring the biggest contribution to peace in Europe being the Cold war and the US + NATO glaring at the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact who in turn are glaring back, with both sides threatened to lob nuclear warheads at each other to the severe detriment of the entirety of the continent of Europe.

It could as well be argued that the formation and continued existence of what has become the EU is not the cause of peace in Europe, but the result of peace in Europe.
