Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

When you look at history and the frequency of wars in Europe, I think the forerunners of the EU must get all the credit for keeping the peace.

Nato was not entirely run by the USA, there was a large European army backed up by air power. The US sector was only in the south of Germany, the rest was European plus I think a bit of Canadian.

At the end of the cold war, when we saw how weak the Warsaw Pact was, we learned that we had wasted a lot of money there.
