No it should not stay as one country. Why should two country join together just because they are small. They be useful to us in the future and will cause less harm if they plan an attack on another country. The bigger the country, the more power and dangerous it is. It could possible join up with Netherlands, but it will possibly cause civil wars and country wars between them.

Hello jta96,

First of all the Flemish and Walloons joined together to revolt against the Netherlands for the reason that they were Catholics and the Dutch were Protestans and controlled to much of their economy and social institutions .
So they didn't joined , because they were small .

"They be useful to us in the future and will cause less harm if they plan an attack on another country"
I don't think that neither Walloons or Flemish are ready to go for a war against any country , because they are
a small country (10 million people ) and have a small army of 24 361 military personnel .
I don't see which country you can occupy with this army , maybe Luxembourg ?

"The bigger the country, the more power and dangerous it is."
Belgium is small country already and it doesn't post any threat to England, Germany ,France or Netherlands .
Its size just lets it have a louder voice and not to use their power over their neighbours .
If Belgium splits in two halves then they will be so small and nobody will pay attention to it .

"It could possible join up with Netherlands"
The Flemish parts maybe could join Netherlands , but I don't think both of them want that , for the reason they have different internal policies .(example : Marijuana legalization)

Thank you for arguing
