Merkel Goes For The Nuclear Mutual Assured Destruction (But Mostly Suicide) Option

Tyler Durden's picture

As Merkel ends her speech to the Bundestag on her way out to the Euro Summit, here are the main rhetorical conclusions:

  • MERKEL SAYS JUSTIFIABLE TO MAXIMISE EFSF FIREPOWER
  • MERKEL SAYS GERMANY `IS NOT THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD'
  • MERKEL SAYS EURO CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO FAIL
  • MERKEL CITES 'HISTORIC DUTY' TO PRESERVE EUROPE, EURO

But none of that compares to what just was the use of the nuclear mutual assured destruction option, to wit

  • Merkel: No one should take another 50 years of peace in Europe for Granted (per DJ)

And scene: Hank Paulson would be so proud
