I read this news story and don’t know what to think. Here is the money quote.
“Nobody should take for granted another 50 years of peace and prosperity in Europe. They are not for granted. That’s why I say: If the euro fails, Europe fails,” Merkel said, followed by a long applause from all political groups.”
I’ve always thought that the Euro would fail, but here is the leader of Germany stating it clearly that if it fails, there will be riots and, possibly, war. Of course, she uses that rhetoric to get Germany to bail out Greece with even more money, but still raises the specter of what will happen with the Euro inevitably fails. It is a matter of when, not if.
Look out people, here it comes!
