I give you the Bosnian wars, of which I bear physical and mental scars. Europe already has fought again.


And lets not forget that was a Christian vs. Muslim war.

Same goes, as long as they keep the finances together, for the whole continent.


Thus Friedman's point (or at least part of it): What if the finances do not hold?

A slide back to stupid petty nationalistic politics, retarded by the slow disintegration of EU institutions.

After that, owt could happen.

A nationalistic war, in which one of the three main groupings was Catholic, one Muslim, one Orthodox.

They all fought each other.

The none of them, as evidenced by their behaviour, were particularly religious.

From close observation 1991-95 and again with the NATO mission in 2003, I would trust a Bosniak over a Serb or a Croat any day.
