Greeces left-wing Syriza party leads the polls ahead of the elections and is in favor of changing the conditions of the countrys international bailout deal. That would likely anger the rest of the eurozone, which has given Athens the bulk of the rescue loans. [ ]

Interesting....Like a web...
I wonder how many Europeans knew that anything they ever voted for led to irrevocable membership in an organization that’s in slavery to German banks.

I wonder how many Americans knew that adopting the Constitution was “irrevocable?”
Esp. since several states stated specifically to the contrary in the articles in which they adopted the Constitution!
Stuff like this has a high potential for creating a civil war.
If Greece votes to leave the EU what’s the EU going to do about it? Invade?
“Irrevocable”- does that mean Brussels is going to send troops if Greece withdraws? Somehow I don’t think it is that “irrevocable.”
Back the in the EUSSR!
FYI, the wiki site has a clickable Euler diagram showing the relationships between various multinational European organizations and agreements.
It is possible for Greece to exit the Euro while remain in the EEA, Schengen (security zone), BSEC, EEA, EU and EU customs......

And that would be even more reason NOT to join it.
The European Left's candidate for the European Commission presidency, Alexis Tsipras, Friday called for the immediate release of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams who is been held for questioning in connection with the 1972 murder of Jean McConville. Tsipras called the arrest a "politically inflammatory act against democracy".
