The problem in 1919, was that some Belgians wanted a "Great Belgium", and that didn't agree with the people of Luxembourg. As you can see drawing a dumb border for some not really well understood reasons can have "unexpected" results.
That's why I'm glad the EU is slowly disbanding borders and, in my case, that I had the chance to recover my Luxembourgeois nationality and become a bi-national. If some day Belgium was to split, I'd be as glad to demand both my nationalities. Stupid nationalist politicians may have dumb ideas, but if they want to play that game... there will always be people to put a spanner in their works.
