The problem is, though, this leaves Europe at another crossroads; only there's no road on the other side.

So it's a T-Junction?

Hey, give the Germans credit for showing some backbone

When have the Germans ever had issues with backbone? They started a world war and nearly killed all European Jews cause they didn't like the cut of their jib.

Many shubs and zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the fires of the Sloar that day, I can tell you.

You know that story about the girl who got a flesh eating bacteria, and they had to start cutting off limbs in an attempt to save her?

Yea, that's pretty much where the EU is.

The only question is if they can limit things to just Greece.

Its a smart move by Germany, sometimes you just have to let things go. Throwing good money at bad just creates more debt, at least some country is seeing that.

Nope. We've been told all along that a member state cannot exit the Euro. If they allow Greece to do so then one of two things will happen: Either the Euro will collapse straight away as it will have proven itself incapable of managing the recession of one of its member states, or it will trigger a firesale on Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Icelandic debt as it will be shown that an exit from the Euro can be done. Such a firesale would collapse those economies and result in the death of the Euro anyway as the member states all revert to their own currencies.

I think Sarkozy would be short enough to qualify as the Key Master. You put them together and you get the abomination that is Zuul (aka Greece).

No idea who the Ghostbusters would be.

Sarkozy just got kicked out, so he couldn't be it.

This is bad news...for Obama.

If the Euro fails, Obama is done and that's a good thing. We too have been encouraging the establishment of the Fourth Reich in Europe for a decade destroying the Greeks, Irish, and Italians and it has benefited a lot of multinational corporations like McDonald's, Google, Microsoft, and Apple at the expense of the people living there. It didn't work well for the United States when the Third Reich was all bad and we had to declare war on them.

If the Euro fails, expect deflation to hit us hard.

chasd00: The problem for Germany is if the EU fails they will have no one to export to


That's. . . very inaccurate. German manufacturers are some of the big names in infrastructure. Whether it's a road in Brazil or a T-shirt sweatshop in China, I assure you they're not using domestic. American, Japanese and German equipment are trusted globally. The outputs are cheap, but you really don't want to dick with factory downtime. It's also largely why "manufacturing is dead" is such a myth. OK, we're buying T-shirts from China at $2 a pop (then get re-sold at a 1000% markup), but we're selling them the $200k textile machinery. Rest assured Germany is doing the same.
