Merkel Rattles Her Change Purse…

…or was it her sword?

Merkel wants ‘permanent’ supervision of Greece, warns of war

In a dark blue jacket reflecting the mood in and about the eurozone, Merkel abandoned her usual cautious rhetoric warned outright of a war.

“Nobody should take for granted another 50 years of peace and prosperity in Europe. They are not for granted. That’s why I say: If the euro fails, Europe fails,” Merkel said, followed by a long applause from all political groups.

“We have a historical obligation: To protect by all means Europe’s unification process begun by our forefathers after centuries of hatred and blood spill. None of us can foresee what the consequences would be if we were to fail.”

We taught them a lesson in 1918
And they’ve hardly bothered us since then…

    That article is pure…..non-joy, Syd. But thanks for the info; it’s a relief to know that light in the distance is the train, not the end of the tunnel.
