    Western Europeans are programmed to know less about their neighbors than they know about their Arab enemies. So, who are east Europeans? East Europeans are the neighbors of west Europeans. Do West Europeans have an idea why all their European wars start in east Europe?

    all wars? Doubt about it.
    Eastern europeans are mostly slavic people.Some of them are of the same culture as westerners are, some are not, like Russians. The difference between Catholic and Orthodox cultures is huge, that is why wars are possible.

    I begin to think that this difference is militarized by Western Europeans. Eastern Europeans by themselves would not have a problem with it.

    western europeans are trying to have their own history and culture apart from russian influence. That is why they have extra hatred towards eastern neighbor.

    This is very interesting. To me it seems that Western Europeans want to take over Russia. This makes sense to me, considering Russian resources, and that Germany and France are now United. What is more dangerous, Russia redrawing more European country borders, or Western Europe redrawing more European country borders?

    Honesty about power politics is better than western stile manipulation and obfuscation, I think. Too bad, honesty never wins.

    I think Yugoslavia was a break up masterpiece. Originally a French creation, but reestablished by Russia, then very carefully disassembled by the USA. And all by stealing and using the money and land of their Hungarian neighbors. A "masterpiece".

    Hey Maggdy, I think I like you, your map is very mysterious. It unites eastern parts of west Europe and western parts of east Europe. It points to a question of who manipulates this east and west division, as it appears to be now new.
