Former German chancellor Kohl thinks the euro is about preventing war

Former German chancellor Helmut Kohl, one of the  main architects of the failed euro, has stepped into the debate about the wisdom of further aid to Greece:

On Tuesday, Kohl repeated his mantra that the euro was about nothing less than preventing war. That view, he argued, still applied despite the decades of peace Europe has enjoyed.
"The evil spirits of the past have by no means been banished, they can always return. That means: Europe remains a question of war and peace and the desire for peace remains the driving force behind European integration," wrote Kohl.

It is of course difficult for Kohl to realise that his great project is about to fail. In order to spare him from further embarrassment, hopefully someone tells Kohl to abstain from making further comments.
