  1. This is stupid. When the “with exceptions for” statement mentions more than one conflict, you can be sure that even a relative peace never existed.

  2. Yeah, it was the EU did it and not the giant US and NATO military presence. Okay. This entire Wikipedia “article” is based on only one citation. That citation is a book written by college professor who is a known a pro-EU wonk. Can we try to filter this garbage a little bit?

    Before the pro-EU people jump at me, yes, the EU is important as a form of stability and peace. However, there is a reason Russia is attack Ukraine and not Germany.
