Yay! We won the Peace Prize!
-Ode to Joy plays in head-
My parents can't seem to understand why I wish to buy a European flag and hang it in my room.
Do I think it was well-deserved? Yes. Now, some would suggest that we wouldn't go to war again anyway, but that's not the point. The EU helped stabilise ex-military dictatorships in the southern states, and after the fuck-up in the Baltic, helped stabilise those too.
And the European military force is doing some good work in Kosovo. Heck, we've even initiated Ascension talks with them.
Plus! Plus! Europe has constantly been fighting since 1410
. From 1410 to 1945
there has been a war fought on European soil.
@ Tagg. The Red Cross has won it three
times, as has Medicins Sans Frontieres
(... I'm not the most biased person to talk about this, am I? XD)
