"Ireland  wants to reschedule debt issued under its EU/IMF rescue package and will not accept less favorable treatment than other bailed out countries in changing the deal......

Those damn peasant nations are getting down right uppity. Time to slap some sense into them.

That one seems a bit thin, but I guess lean meat is better for you anyway.

Dogs of war and men of hate
With no cause, we don't discriminate
Discovery is to be disowned
Our currency is flesh and bone
Hell opened up and put on sale
Gather 'round and haggle
For hard cash, we will lie and deceive
Even our masters don't know the web we weave
One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down
One world ... One world
Invisible transfers, long distance calls,
Hollow laughter in marble halls
Steps have been taken, a silent uproar
Has unleashed the dogs of war
You can't stop what has begun
Signed, sealed, they deliver oblivion
We all have a dark side, to say the least
And dealing in death is the nature of the beast
One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down
One world ... One world
The dogs of war won't negotiate
The dogs of war don't capitulate,
They will take and you will give,
And you must die so that they may live
You can knock at any door,
But wherever you go, you know they've been there before
Well winners can lose and things can get strained
But whatever you change, you know the dogs remain

Pink Floyd, "The Dogs of War"

Core EU is fucked - they just don't realize it yet. Either pay the cost of bailing out PIIGS or pay the cost in an increase in euro-denominiated debt premia that will follow an EU sovereign default. Wonder which is less?

Let the Games continue!

The problem comes from giving all that welfare to the banker-gangsters to spend on a spending spree of hookers, drugs, and free money for use at the gambling den!

But it's much better to focus on the effect rather than the cause when the cause is you.

Extreme intraday volatility causes tracking errors.

Stay away from 2x inverse ETF's, they are pure portfolio poison.

Two choices Ireland:

1.  Nut up and go IRA-style on politicians, bankers and their families.

2.  Roll over and accept your fate as a slave.

Just to remind folks, the Swaps decide everything.

Credit default swaps on Ireland, Greek, etc debt would trigger on any default or restructure and there are billions upon billions of them owned by banks all over the world and . . . those . . . banks . . . have . . . refused . . . to . . . divest.

They have been begged, ordered, pressured and threatened to divest, and they have not done so.  Instead, they inform their Prime Ministers that they have vast holdings of the swaps and if those countries default, the swaps will trigger and bankrupt Germany, and France, and England and the US.  

And so, Mr. Prime Minister, you need to keep taxpayer money flowing (because eventually it will go in the banks' pockets).  

It is the indirect result of oil depletion.  The banks know there can never again be any growth, so they arrange to grow their piece of the shrinking pie.

Ireland doesn't really have a sovereign debt problem. It has a broken bank problem. It can export that if it has the guts.

That's a bit of a difference without distinction, but your conclusion is valid.

The swaps exist on both soveriegns AND Irish (or Greek) bank debt.  The point is not the underlying entity.  It is the refusal of banks globally to divest their swap holdings and close them out.  

They have reasoned it out.  In a world with oil capped growth, their conduit into taxpayer money is simply holding swaps and terrorizing politicians.

Fully loaded weapons of mass destruction - I am not a big fan of Putin but if the situation was the same in Russia he would not hesitate to put people at the banks behind bars and break up the banks and give the banks business/assets to those willing to divest the swap holdings .

I admire people with the temerity to face up to the banker-gangsters who think the world revolves around their drug binges, welfare checks, and trips to the casino.

Moreover, to be a banker-gangster is to be a sociopath.

This is the point Tyler willfully refuses to acknowledge, in all of its manifestations.  

Much easier to create idiotic diversions by blaming the silly muppets rather than the thieves telling them how to behave and what to say.

Because doing so puts blame where it belongs - don't want that.

Ireland decided to take banks debt on their own books. Now they are in situation of credit card holder making 4000$/mth and after costs he's left with 200$ and his interest on CC is 300$ now he has choice to say fuck it or borrow more and pay it counting on miracles down the road.

They either reschedule for them, or they let them default. The end result will be that they default no matter what, if they know what is good for them. But if the banks want to keep this game going and squeeze as much juice out of them as possible. They know what they have to do.

+ Wolfe Tone...

"To subvert the tyranny of our execrable government, to break the connection with England, the never failing source of all our political evils, and to assert the independence of my country--these were my objects. To unite the whole people of Ireland, to abolish the memory of all past dissentions, and to substitute the common name of Irishman, in the place of the denominations of Protestant, Catholic, and Dissenter--these were my means."
