For John, BLUF: The Europeans could make some tragic errors if they decide to "punish" the Brits for Brexit. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the web magazine War on the Rocks, and the pen of Mr Luis Simón, Research Professor at the Institute for European Studies (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Director of the Brussels office of the Royal Elcano Institute. He has a PhD in International Relations from the University of London (Royal Holloway College). A quick history of Britain and Europe from the middle 1700s to today and a discussion of what the departure of Britain from the European Union (EU) via Brexit might mean.
