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

Why- this quote perhaps makes the best case for it.

17 killion were killed in WW1, and 20 mio wounded. That's reason enough, Id say.

The war in Yugoslavia was an internal war- and Europe could do little to prevent it. It was always a troubled region, I am sad to say. (My mother was a guest at Court in Zagreb and Bled twice in 1927 and 1928, and always knew it would all end in lots of tears and blood.)
Consequences of the rule of the Ottoman Empire...
That0s why it was always a troubled region. Add in the Austro-Hungarians and the dominance of only 2 nationalities and you get the real picture. :-)
Anyway, let's not mix Yugoslavia here. EU was not based on the same principles.
