Rewrite: The Treaty of Paris, 1951 (start of what's now the EU) let the main enemies from WWII share production of coal and steel, key-resources in a war, to gain diplomatic and economic stability. Do you believe free trade reduces the risk of war?

Sorry, you posted: Free trade helps. Appeasement doesn't.

If we just bombed Iran and China with blue jeans, satellite phones, and thumb drives full of MP3s, this would be over before it starts.

I'm probably as bad as anyone can be in reading sarcasm. I'm equally bad writing it.
