A thousand years will pass and still this guilt of Germany will not have been erased – Hans Frank
Let us leave it to a convicted Nazi war criminal to provide the twisted rationale for a French surrender and the collective European amnesia which allows the Germans to play hard ball with the EU.
So what do we get?
That fat Hausfrau Merkel dictating to Europe what the Germans will allow them to do.
That Eau d'Dwarf Sarkozy, product of a Greek Jew and a Hungarian aristo ( I know, you can hardly believe it) is still so frightened of the big bad Germans that he hides under a Carla's skirt whenever he sees one approaching the long-extinct Maginot Line.
That arch-coward George Papandreou, instead of reminding Merkel of the debt Germany owes to Greece, cobbles together an unlikely looking coalition of losers to placate the Krauts.
I can not believe it!
Meanwhile President Obama sits on the side-lines and waits to see how the Europeans can screw up the world's economy because he does not have the stomach for a fight with Germany. The war-time coalition must be spinning so fast in their graves that if only we could harness the force involved we could solve the energy crisis for another generation.
Let us forget the economics of the situation. Like all economic arguments no-one, least of all the politicians, really understands what's going on.
I'd rather focus on the Germans.
How did they, seemingly all of a sudden (in economic terms), become the all powerful super-Krauts who must be obeyed?
Don't forget barely a generation ago they were destitute, relying on the rest of us, mostly us as in U.S., to make sure they didn't starve. So we did.
Remember the Marshall Plan? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Plan) Read carefully what the Germans did with the money!
Regardless of how you slice it, the Germans owe us all big-time.
Billions were spend trying to get rid of the Nazi crowd. Whole European countries were bankrupted – including Greece. Millions of Europeans perished.
Then we gave the Krauts a lot of money to prevent them from turning Soviet.
My plan. The Germans should underwrite the Greek debt. All of it. And, for all time.
Then every year British, Irish, French, Dutch, Norwegian, Belgian and Danish citizens should form an orderly queue outside their chosen German auto factory to collect their new BMW, Audi, Mercedes or Porsche.
No payment due cause they owe us and owe us big-time.
That's my economic plan to solve the Euro crisis.
You tell me why it's wrong. Go on, tell me.
