#1 This is probably already on a map somewhere in the EU as one of the provinces of "The Greater European Republic" or whatever they're calling their desired end point these days.

#2 ...you mean something like this?

Given the old saying 'you and whose army' meets a EU that has really no army [that in previous centuries kept aspirations in check] or means to fund such, forcing the natives in line is going to be interesting.

#3 As far as the Eu is concerned it shouldn't matter what size the member states are. Dissolving to smaller parts will make them more dependent upon the larger EU for a number of things and limits the debt they can run up. Of course it also makes countries like Italy more likely to drop out of the EU as well because there is still national pride despite all attempts to suppress it.

#4 It's worse over here. I Just looked at a map, and by my count seven states have left the union, leaving us with only fifty.

#5 I blame Bush, Matt. Obama inherited this only-50-state union.

#6 And the new "Reformation" of the US-West continues, NOT as per the Sharia-happy Islamic World.

Better start saving $$$ to buy stock in Burqua Inc, a OWG/Global Caliphate LLC - "D *** NG IT, WE BEHEAD OUR CUSTOMERS RIGHT"!

#7 I wonder whether these folks (Venice, Scotland, Catalonia, etc) have the wherewithal to survive on their own?
