We did and we know what we speak of. So yes, they should appreciate both us as ancient fighters and survivors of such a mass influx as well as you of course as our present grown up son who became a Superpower. If it was not for you the whole of Balkans would have fallen under the Serbo-Russian influence.
You see due to limited technology (compared to what we have now) quarrels and conflicts have usually been with neighboring countries. Europe is big . If we are angry still with our neighbors and we do not trust them, with present transportation technology, what is to stop from cooperating with next to neighboring countries?
I think airplanes should be cheaper. I think we should cooperate ASAP and turn EU to a nation entirely based on this next neighbor larger cooperation method.
Perhaps trust may be build in a few millenniums also just like it was ruined in just as much. This is more realistic than pushing cooperation with distrusted neighbors today. There would not be a downsize to this apart from having your neighbor as a 4th or 5th connection after the ones that had nothing to do historically with your demise take place in the most inner circle of your cooperation network in maintain EU as a nation.
In Europe wars were more localized. So you had wars that lasted for centuries between France and England, Deutchland and France, Us and Slavs, etc. But we did had nothing with say Ireland, Suomiland, Norway, Dutch, Belgium, Spain (thus confused why they do not recognize us still), Iceland, Austria, Switzerland, and many others. Hence we should use this Historical opportunity to cooperate with these first and with others later.
That is the difference when viewed Historically between USA and Europe.

Russia Warns Of American Deaths As Ukraine Crisis Spirals Out Of Control
To the estimated 1,800 of these Academi mercenaries now operating in Ukraine, this report warns, they have been actively suppressing the popular uprisings in the Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk [see video HERE], but failed to stop these citizens from protesting against the self-proclaimed government in Kiev, most especially in Lugansk where thousands of protesters this afternoon blocked and occupied the regional administration building, hoisting a Russian flag on its top.
Most dangerous to report, this report further warns, is that a Russian diplomat in Kiev has informed the Interfax news agency that 300 more of these mercenaries had arrived there too, and as he stated: “These are soldiers of fortune proficient in combat operations. Most of them had operated under private contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan and other states. Most of them come from the United States.”
Upon these US-backed mercenaries arriving in Kiev, this report continues, they began the mobilization of Ukraine’s depleted military forces (as over a third of them have already pledged their allegiance to Russia) and have begun dispatching in great numbers military trucks, armored personnel carriers, surface-to-air missiles, howitzers, and tanks [see all videos HERE] towards their eastern Russian-speaking regions and Crimea.
Critical to note about the Obama regimes continued aggression towards Russia in its attempt to start a Ukrainian war, this report says, are the American propagandists continuing to assert that Putin “wants to rebuild USSR with Ukraine.”"
Source: The New York TimesDetermined to block the local legislature from heeding calls from pro-Russia activists for more autonomy and even secession from Ukraine, 5,000 Crimean Tatars, the region’s indigenous Turkic, Muslim population, traded taunts and occasional blows with protesters waving Russian flags.
After a peaceful start, the dueling rallies turned into a melee in the late afternoon. A couple of dozen Tatars broke into the legislative building, surging past riot police officers to confront anxious local legislators huddled inside.
“Where are the separatists?” screamed a furious Tatar activist, banging a wooden staff on the marble floor.
Of course, as I said, no one is talking about that and you clearly are ignorant of at least the part where they broke into the parliament building. Details best forgotten in the eyes of the Western media.
