    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Soon enough the rattling of German Tiger tanks will be heard on the streets of Athens.

That would be the Leopard II, unless you're planning some sort of historical reenactment.

Not now,
the task of the German army is to stop the enemy until real military arrives.

come on. In the year 2010, Germany is the last country to invade anyone. Greeks will get over this little photoshop and move on revolting their own country.

Germany's pathetic military would be hard pressed to make it to the Austrian border let alone Athens, and then only if they get an American GI to loan them a GPS handset.  But that's what 1% of GDP gets you.

Seriously, it will only take some clueless Greek politicians joining the chorus for a boycott against German goods in order for the EU to go beserk. It could actually be considered a breach of the EU treaties (free movement of goods and services, anyone?).

FWIW, Rogers claims he never made those statements:

"Financier Jim Rogers Friday denied making remarks attributed to him in a press release this week saying the pound sterling is at risk of imminent collapse."

Greeks should start boycotting their idiot politicians. Having a good civilization 3000 years ago does not mean you are civilized enough now. You can not live on what you did 3000 years ago. It is time to pay some debt and tight some belts.

Same shit as here (US).  People are all for the government being financially responsible..  Until they realize they have to make do with less, be financially responsible, and generally work harder themselves.  At that point you start getting "It's our given RIGHT to these things!  You cannot take them away!"

Watch what happens here if unemployment continues to rise or holds at the current high levels and they ever fail to extend the UE benefits.

I was listening to radio interview with a protester at a Tea Party. What an idiot. Retired cop on disability complaining about govt spending. Totally clueless. Guy has spent his life living off other peoples taxes, still doing it today while contributing nothing to this country. And he thinks cutting govt spending will some how only affect other people.

Pop some corn and get a good seat. When the govt actually cuts spending it is going to get fun fast.

Quite right. Police and fire departments are the only things in government budgets that can be cut.

That is, if you want your house to burn down & find out what a good old fashioned crime wave is really like. Cop & Fireman jobs are dangerous, dangerous, dangerous. you might like it for them to do the work for chump change but guess what, it's a free country & they don't have to. Everybody puts the cops down until they need one. If you cut police jobs they will find ready employment as private cops for the Kleptocracy & YOU won't be safe in your bed at night.

The only unemployment that will matter, and when you will hear the screamming, is when the teachers begin losing their jobs. When that starts to happen, Look Out!

The screaming will commence when teachers start losing their jobs.  When that happens, Look Out!  You see, teachers are much too important to be unemployed.

Here in America we did all that already; tightened our belts, made do with less, worked harder. The criminal upper class took that & ran with it. Now they own 95% of the wealth, sent all our jobs offshore & took control of the government. I guess we can take pride in being the most productive workers in the world but when the race to the bottom is done what exactly will that get us?

Yeah, 3000 years is a long time ago.  But it was only like 2350 years, +/-.  Much more recent.

I wonder if the magazine editors that are spurring the inter-ethnic hatred are jews or financed by jews, as always. But we'll never know that - to us it will be reported as Gemrans vs Greeks.
