A BBC Cold War Reflection

How much was 1989 like 1919? BBC News Magazine

What a great reflection on the relationship between the end of wars and regional economic growth within Europe. For once, someone has the foresight to say that Tuchman was wrong in her proposals of how war happens and Fromkin was correct in his view of the post-war Europe.

The current economic collapses and political turmoil of Eastern Europe is directly related to the nation building imperialism of the last two decades. In addition, by promoting and sustaining a moderate government in Saudi Arabia, the US has generated the ideal conditions for the creation and sustained growth of groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS.
