More on Greece: There were pregnant women rushing from hospital to hospital, begging to be admitted to give birth. They had no health insurance and no money, and no one wanted to help them. People who used to be middle class were picking through discarded fruit and vegetables off the street as the stands from a farmers’ market were being taken down http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2012-12-15/price-%E2%80%9Ccollective-trauma%E2%80%9D-greece-brink-civil-war

More than a decade ago, in Greece, I was warned to keep my hotel window locked shut, as Albanians were flooding into the country and drug running was a big business. It was bloody hot, I was sick, and the room was not air conditioned. The entire thing was no fun at all.

I hadn’t considered the effects of the SE European, Balken, and so forth violence spilling over into Greece. Then again, I was sick.

The entire set of events make for quite a story, from start to finish, but Greece had a role to play.
