Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, those are the big ones. But another five years of austerity and we might get new candidates to that list. If Bersani+Monti gets majority after a new electio, will Lega Nord pick up their old ambitions of secessionism? Are there fascist movements that might take over the relatively weak democracies of eastern Europe?

When thinking about the dynamics of EU and the crisis, I think that if there are wars the major powers will be tempted to get involved. Which means they (and thus the EU) are supporting one side against the other and then allowing the supported side to remain in the EU/represent the state in the EU. Which also means that EU continues, but not necessarily as a club of democracies.
