Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the burning memory of Yugoslavia is sufficiently potent that the EU (or a coalition of the military powers therein) would intervene militarily in anything which started degenerating into serious armed conflict.
You say that like it's a good thing

The point is not to push policies that lead to countries degenerating into armed conflict, and then claim that the pushers can fix the mess by occupying the country.

This sounds too close to a Neocon regime change strategy - economic strangulation, followed by humanitarian intervention. Is that the way the EU will carry out its internal politics in the first third of the 21st century?
