German thunderheads blow Europe up for the third time in 100 years. National character doesnt change it gets slightly modified. This is all so unnecessary.
The FIRST time was the result of French foreign policy (alliance building) and a bunch of murderous left wing thugs willing to light any available fuse who did.
The second time was because of the first ending the way it did and how the already festering neo-pagan mysticism of the late 19th century took advantage of it.
The third time, if it happens, will be because of Islam and a deluded and therefore suicidal culture of European guilt for history.
