I say just for a change the French should surprise them and invade. Of course as soon as they run into a farm hand wielding a pitch fork they'll surrender but it would surprise the crap out of everyone.

I wonder what the betting odds on the EU surviving the next 5 years wholly intact are. At this point I think the only people who don't want to just forget about the whole thing are Germany and a few Eastern European states like Poland, Romania Latvia and Lithuania. It's not a coincidence that those're the only places that have benefited from the EU.

The whole thing is very reminiscent of the US prior to adopting the Constitution. History suggests they're either going to dissolve or adopt a much more centralized European government where the countries are just constituent provinces.
