Anyone who thinks that peace is set in eternity is fundamentally wrong. And there is war again in Europe,” Mr Juncker said, referring to conflict in Ukraine.He warned that the refugee crisis poses a risk to the “highly sensitive” Balkans follows conflicts in Kosovo and Bosnia.“Europe gains whenever we point out that Europe is a major project for peace."Whoever does not believe in Europe, who doubts Europe, whoever despairs of Europe, should visit the military cemeteries in Europe.”
This is liberal nonsense. US policy is also based on the idea that democracies don't go to war with one another, so democracy needs to be imposed on the unwilling, because 1) they don't know what's good for them, and 2) liberalism contains the solution to all problems, be they social, political or economic, or some combination thereof. This view has progressed beyond ideology and morphed into insanity. Conflict is almost sure to follow as an "unintended consequence" of "doing good."Morans, all of them.
