A Non-Blog Disliked by Google
Maybe a little TOO fed up. It didn't take long for nationalism to rear it's ugly head in the United Europe... the Greeks say that the Germans stole the gold of the Greek central bank in WWII, the Germans accuse the Greeks of being criminal and lazy, etc. This may all be true but the fact that they are so willing to accuse their EU brothers in public is definitely a sign that nationalism is not dead. Public feeling runs even stronger than the politicians, which is dangerous - as Aaron showed, leaders have to try to get out ahead of the mob to channel it in the right direction.Someone mentioned today a possible solution - it would be politically impossible for the Greeks, Italians, etc. to abandon the Euro. But if Merkel told the Germans that they could have their Deutsch Marks back, there would be dancing in the streets. So Germany is the one that should pull out of the Euro and leave it to the PIIGS.K
Yes, the German press is using unusually harsh words in these days. They have (peacefully) conquered Europe and now are fed up with the whole bunch.
Post Script: There were unusually harsh words yet they ended paying the bill. The Germans must be boiling of anger. I would too.
