The royal families of europe are already starting to flee. This is going to happen very soon.

It's no coincidence the nuclear reactors are starting to fail. 

At the Paris Air Show, Boeing disclosed several 747-8 superjumbos have been bought by "secretive VIPs". Expect those planes to be loaded not only with the royal families, but with GOLD!

Quite possibly, but given that only one of the PIIGS (the P) doesn't have a history of serious organised criminal violence, I would say that popular terrorist uprisings are more likely than WWIII.

That's years away though and would require the above mentioned Germany not to pull out of it's own free will once virtually everyone in the EU is bankrupt.

Talking of world wars, it seems rather a shame that 70 odd million died in WWII in the name of self determination. The European members of that statistic seem to have died for nothing.

Yet ignorant people here hoist Andrew Jackson up as an idol, wtf, that bastard was in charge of slauthering my anscestors. Today what he did would be called genocide and ethnic cleansing, all to clear the way for slave plantations working for the corporate machine. Same as it ever was I guess.

Andrew Jackson is a hero. The only man to ever have defeated the bankers. America's meteoric rise to power would never have been possible without his having "cleared the way" for civilization. It was later that the bankers returned along with their tax and wage slavery.  You should thank him for the reservations. He/we were not obligated to provide them. Random unprovoked scalping and slaughtering of my ancestors, and you have the nerve to claim genocide.

You are a neo-nazi. You should leave zerohedge and take your one dimensional views to some kkk site.

Jackson was "good" for some things,anti-Fed Bank, and a fascist swine for others - murdering the very "indians" who helped him defeat the Brits.

If you believe might is right - well, then you and your ancestors have no particular claims to superiority - you are beneath principles, beneath civilized, conversational legitimacy.

war is a part of human nature, to deny that, is living in fantasy land.  even the indians fought amongst themselves for resources.  Its clan fighting clan at its basic. 

oil has allowed the population to skyrocket without fighting for resources.  Think about it could we feed all these people without oil,,,,, NO and not only but FUCK NO.

We all take a side for our own self preservation,  Andrew Jackson was a great man and sought to protect his clan(America), 

90% of all you fuckers out there would be dead and maybe including myself if there is no more oil.  the difference is I and small few, would attribute death, to not being strong enough to survive.

you learn about Darwinsm in school but most of the fuctards on this planet don't live their life like they believe in Darwinsm.  But then you ask most people do you believe in Darwinism?,,,, and 90% says YES       that's some disconnect wouldn't you say

neo-nazi ROFL. According your one-dimensional definition 90%+ of Americans born pre-1960 would be neo-nazis. Might-makes-right is nature's law. American colonists saw unclaimed land and took it. Fortunately you do not have the wherewithall to determine "conversational legitimacy". Damn that pesky American First Ammendment to the constitution of the American states. Jackson did not "murder" the indians, he sent them to Oklahoma, nor was he a fascist. You are the swine, and a symptom or active participant in the destruction of America as a nation.

Native Americans actually drew first blood. The ones who sided with the evil French deserved to die.

The Brits started the money for scalps.

Europeans are evil. Always have been. Always will be.

And if you didn't know, the reason the northeast US was essentially empty when the colonists arrived, it was because one tribe had just genocided another.

Almost as if it were meant to happen the way it did.

So the europeans are evil, but you, advocating genocide, are saint, I guess.

The land was mostly purchased.  It was initially settled by small groups of immigrants.  The injuns' immigration policy was slaughter.  So, justice had to prevail.

Had the injuns just been able to get along without slaughtering and intertribal genocide, perhaps a better solution could have been worked out.

Andrew Jackson should be posthumously impeached. He is the man who was responsible for the Hurricane Katrina disaster. He conquored New Orleans and took it away from the British after the war had finished. If he hadn't done this, New Orleans would have been a British enclave and the disaster none of Washington's business. He is to blame for all the embarassment that Bush and Co faced when the city was flattened.

WWII was not about self determination, it was about socialism.

It was about building the perfect society, and since the leaders of the main protagonists (Germany and Russia) were interested in society not individuals, they were willing to sacrifice millions of individuals in order to impose the society they preferred... (National Socialism, or Soviet Socialism).

The fact is... most of the population of Europe is made up of foreigners... and that is true whatever your nationality.

Neocon-Spiegel simply helps trying to break up the German government, cause they support old moneys peacekeeping internationalists. Spiegel supports Lipsky in this task, who demanded unlimited German support for Greece without any condition. Such a surrender would break up conservatives and liberal parties in Berlin. Thats what the neocon world warmongers try after paleoconservative Germany remained neutral in the Libya conflict. Read the guardian.

The now-day Germans are just stupid. They still apologize for the WWII crimes they did not commit.

How stupid could Hitler be thinking that British imperial gangsters are their cousins? WOW. Instead of looking for peace with Brits, Hitler had to deal with them like American were dealing with Japanese, i.e., if nukes on civilian population did not do the job then American were ready to use massive chemical attack on again civilian population in violation of all treaties America was a signatory to.

No wonder, after all, America proudly implemented a genocide against the native America population. Just watch when shit hits the fan and the American economy collapse.

Der Spiegel is always looking for some sort of partisan statement to prove they are mavericks of truth. Every so often they fail badly...

This case is ridiculous. Of all European nations, German GDP growth between 1990 and 2010 comes in as the THIRD LAST. They have not been blood-sucking Europe, they have saved their way out of misery while the otheres plastered the streets with money they did not own. That's the difference.
