Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The problem here is that we seem to be ascribing explicit motives to hypothetical future wars in function of the current politico-economic clusterfuck. But it's unlikely that any wars will be fought by "pro-austerity" vs "anti-austerity" forces. Broken nations may splinter, but I can't see it being on class lines.

It seems obvious to me (perhaps because I live in fantasyland?) that European governments would not deny military assistance to a democratically-elected European government that was under attack. It also seems obvious to me that any military coup against a democratically-elected European government would result in blocade and heavy economic and diplomatic pressure etc.
