I remember having an argument with a professor in London in 2003, who was lecturing the the Euro would mean that there would never again be a major land war in Europe, and further that those Union'ed nations will grow together in peace, with a linked economy meaning they'll all forever work "Together", because to not do so would sink all their economies. Point is, never say never, because the Euro aint looking so good, and its been less than a decade.
