whalsa Posted March 1, 2016 Report Share Posted March 1, 2016 Agree with what others have said about the EU having little to do with the lack of armed conflict in Western Europe. Modern democracies very rarely wage war against each other. After WW2 Western Europe was united against a common enemy in Soviet Russia. As has already been pointed out it was NATO (and the threat of nuclear annihilation) which prevented that conflict from descending into open war, nothing to do with the EU. If we leave the EU we will not have any less friends or any more enemies as far as I can see. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
