Egyptian revolution
EU couldn’t keep peace in a Buddhist monastery
16 February 2011

In the wake of the EU’s reaction to the events in Egypt, I can’t help
thinking again of President Van Rompuy’s recent Warsaw speech. “Europe
is the best guarantee for peace. It was and is a work of peace.” Then,
“Europe has to be the fatherland of peace. We owe this to our
history ... The bloody battlefields from our history have been replaced
by Brussels negotiating rooms.”
