Verhoeven's exact quote, IIRC, was "War makes fascists of us all." Which is of course his right to believe.
I don't know the context in which he said it, but it strikes me as an infuriatingly glib and simplistic statement.
Not to mention completely untrue...

I'm sure Verhoeven is aware that if the Allies hadn't gone to war to defeat the Nazis, he and his compatriots would be speaking German now.
...for that very reason.
