Quote from tortoise:
Well, you're probably right. But this is Germany's plan, though it may be destined to fail. Just look at the language in Merkel's party's statement--first EZ, then EU, then US. It's conspicuously expansionist, an avowed strategy to meddle in the domestic affairs of its competitors.
Certainly wouldn't be the first time Germany, misreading the enemy, has shot itself in the head. If memory serves, they've launched and lost a couple of world wars that way.
"History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme." -- Mark Twain
From the article:
"The introduction in the euro zone alone should be a first step to be followed by efforts to get the EU as a whole and also the U.S. later on board, the declaration said."
My God, what arrogance. A unified Germany has been the past century's single greatest menace. The world enjoyed a blessed respite when she was divided during the cold war. But now, re-unified, she's back to form.
Too bad we didn't listen to Henry Morgenthau when we had the chance.
ok, end of rant.
