He's a bright bloke is that Herman! Actually Herman, it's a load of bowlarks, that opinion. The biggest threat to the EU is indeed a violent assault, but only due to the endemic corruption of the EU and Brussel, the lies told by the EU and the complete subversion of the nation states against the will of the people who reside in them. Tito managed to force together various unwilling nationalities for a few years, as did various other leaders who thought that enforced unity of disparate peoples was a cool thing that would lead to peace and harmony. The risk of the destruction of the EU, and the potential for massive casualties amongst the people of Europe in the tearing down of this enforced institution is down to the behaviour and actions of the 'state' of the EU. The majority of the people of Europe don't want it, the vast majority of the people of Europe are disgusted by the lies and corruption of those who run the system, as are they also disgusted by the ever-rising costs of this white elephant with its demands for ever more money when hundreds of millions of the people in various countries are having their governments embark on huge cost cutting exercises. A huge majority feel that the imposition of laws through EU diktat is an abuse of their own democratic systems, and a complete subversion of their parliaments. Want to see death and destruction and wanton violence that starts in Brussels? Keep on the course you've set the EU Rompouy. Don't worry about getting the EU accounts passed. Don't worry about member state democracies. Ignore the will of the people of Europe. Ignore their referendums. Tell them they are stupid when they so 'No' and feel free to demand another vote.
