Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well-said, the question of whether we can learn without disaster (further) will be answered soon.  I hope that with the example of many of the successes of the Europeans in overcoming the tragedies of the first half of the 20th century we can see what a disaster we have brought on by our militarism and its human and financial costs.  It may well be that we can't learn to see until disaster hits generally-that seems to be mankinds way.
