I guess that the designers of the European Union forgot to account for the possibility that one or more member states might make of themselves the economic equivalent of a suicide bomber.
But they think they're really smart, which is what counts at the end of the day, right?

P is playing Pontius Pilate. He is washing his hands of the decision. This is a tricky situation, I spent a good deal of time screen-watching today.

Papandreau is pretty much a dictator as was his father before him and his father before him.
He has the country dependant on Gov't in a big way.
He is trying to rescue his job and engaging in demogoguery to do it.
