Earlier today, German Chancellor Merkel along with French Prime Minister Hollande made another "warm and fuzzy" statement directed towards Greece. They both agreed that they want Greece to stay in the Eurozone. What it possibly implied was, "we are nice guys, so don't blame us when we kill you". It was a classic political touch.
It reminded me of a scene from the Godfather movie... first you sit down with someone who thinks you are their friend, have an enjoyable glass of wine and tell them what they want to hear, and then you kill them!
In this case Merkel and Hollande are not killing a person, but rather an entire country. Sooner or later, Greece is going to leave or get kicked out of the Eurozone. It is just a question of when it is going to happen.
P.S. Anybody want to buy the Greek island?
