          For Austria they could have just let the assassination slide... not exactly a nice option but better than total war

              Serbia didn't even pretend to negotiate in good faith. Their acceptance of most of Austria's demands were phrased to be as vague and non-committal as possible. As to the one point they flat out refused, is demanding a joint investigation of the assassination of the heir to the Austrian throne really that outrageous of a request? The alternative was to allow Serbia, whose military intelligence branch had PLANNED the assassination, to investigate itself.

                They did not reject Austrian oversight, they rejected Austrian CONTROL of the investigation. With the threat of military invasion looming over their shoulder, Serbia had every incentive to be forthright in the investigation.

            that wasn't an issue in 1830
            most of Flanders sided with the Dutch a popular nursing song a een hoedje van papier comes from there being to many volunteers to properly equip so they made hats out of paper.
            The Dutch where welcomed back during tien daagse veldtocht. The only reason why the dutch didn't retake belgium was the frogs joining the war witch they only did because the prussians and the russians where too busy with the polish revolt.
            Several cities in Flanders weren't allowed to hold municipal elections for a decade plus because they feared the strong pro Dutch sentiment in them. Keep in mind that this was when only the very wealthy could vote and it had to be done by open declaration. So they where afraid that the wealthy elite that all spoke french at least as their second language and had gone to Jesuit collages. Would openly declare their support for the dutch in such numbers that they could have won local elections.
            The dutch hadn't offended any Catholic sensibilities between 1814-1830 but most of the Church's upper hierarchy in belgium where from the same urban bourgeoisy that had rebelled in the first place. Before the revolt it where the protestants in the north shitting bricks because the majority of the united kingdom was Catholic and they where used to being able to bully the small Catholic minority in the Netherlands.

        Iraq challenged the international order just like Russia is doing right now. The concept of the rules based world order was directly under attack not to mention the use of chemical weapons and the holding the global energy market hostage.
        The gulf war was actually one of the most logical and successful wars the US had ever fought.

    nope, the untold, hidden story about Belgium being gangbanged in WWI by all the big powers, was the fact it was a small defenseless country that happened to own Congo, one of the most ressource rich country on earth.
    That's like being a small, old man with a million dollar Rolex wandering alone at night; that guy's gonna get mugged.
    it was basically a looting operation, but after WWI, when it turns out the British wouldn't get their slice of the Belgian pie after its destruction (6th economy of the world at the time), they got butthurt and changed their propaganda from "prussians chopped belgian kids hands" to "belgians chopped congolese kids hands".

    No war is made "for Freedurm", it's just the sales pitch to convince young people to sign up and die for shady elite objectives...

    Might be an unpopular opinion, but I don't think WW1 was pointless or stupid.
    It was a war started solely by Austro-German imperialism, that the western powers had to fight off, if you think about it, there's not much difference to what we're seeing today with Russia attacking Ukraine... Well, the obvious difference being today the western powers are not directly involved in the war.
    If you think about it, Imperial Germany and Austria-Hungary were both quasi-putinist, cleptocratic imperialist nations that were trying to forcefully bully weaker nations, just like what Russia is doing today against Ukraine.
    In my opinion it wasn't stupid for the western powers to intervene to protect Serbia and Belgium against the Austro-German imperialism.

      the french community and the brussels municipalities run by french speakers and the brussels regional authority dominated by french speakers have been very active in getting more "french"speaking brownoids to move there. They also let said brownoids set up and run their own ghettos in a symbiotic relationship. The browns vote for the french speaking socialists for gibs and fricking off and letting them do their thing. The french speaking socialists embezzle public funds, run their municipalities like their personal fiefs and don't bother the brownoids.
      That's how the most wanted man in the "country"'s history managed to just chill out in one of those shit hole for 2 months after calmly walking away from bombing the national airport shredding dozens of people into human salsa.
