    They could easily convince him they deserve it; all they have to say is, "We just blew up capitalism."

      has become their primary supplier.

      BTW, Greece has oil and gas deposits which can and should be exploited. Combine that with the vast amounts of natural gas currently being exploited by Cyprus and Israel in the Mediterranean and the subsequent plans to built a pipeline to Europe thru Greece in the next 7 years and that would make Greece a very important player in the energy supply line to Europe for the next half century or more.
      Of course, things will definitely go well if their sovereignty lasts that long. That fact should make people think twice on why many others would like Greece to turned to ashes now.

      •  even israel gets oil from iran. (0+ / 0-)

        they use a middleman to get a cut of iranian oil being sent to europe.

        is was a state run industry. after the deal that was rammed through, that resource is going to be privatized. greece is going to be a big ole fire sale. valuable assets sold off for pennies on the dollar. greeks had their country stolen right from underneath them.
