Hi,

I've been reading Thucydides' history of the Peloponnesian War and how it consumed most of the known civilized world.

The current position of the EU and their imperialist ambitions in Ukraine and the antagonism of Russia reminded me of the same fears the Greek world had of Athens after the Persian Wars.

Thucydides states that human nature never changes. Which got me thinking - will we see another European war - perhaps Russian versus the EU?

It wouldn't be European only
