Brink of Disaster

Yikes!

That, was an incredible surprise. Greece actually threw the whole question of Greek bailout (and by default EU membership) to a referendum?

And, the Prime Minister sacks the heads of the military? At the same time?

You know, I was just settling down to the idea that our timetable for disaster was going to be delayed. I thought to myself “Maybe I’ll get a chance to work on some of those other writing projects. Maybe I’ll get a chance to kick back for a bit and coast.”

Nope. Not gonna happen. People are determined to be idiots, and I’m determined to tell you about it.

And, you’d think that I’d get used to such complete insanity because of what I write about in Israel Outlook. But, I don’t get used to it. It’s still shocking. It’s still upsetting. It still drives me absolutely [insert expletive here] CRAZY!!

Because of how many people get hurt, and even die.

That’s right, the cost of evil, foolishness and rank stupidity is lives. Lives ruined. Lives lost. Lives broken and destroyed. And, to make it all so much worse, all of those ruined, lost, broken and destroyed could have been spared all of it. Easily.

It didn’t have to happen this way.

Adequately expressing in print the teeth-grinding outrage at that realization is impossible. I am at a loss for words. The sheer idiocy is appalling. What morons. What idiots.

And the US admires the EU? Some even WANT to be like the EU?

Is there any way that we can make this level of stupidity a capital crime?

Here are a couple of articles from The Blaze:

Things are unraveling in the eurozone again. Last week, there was a collective sigh of relief after the last-minute vote by EU members to deal with the Greek debt crisis. In fact, even the markets responded well to the news.

But all that was undone Monday when Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou decided to call an “unexpected” referendum vote on the EU bailout deal that would rescue Greece.

Eurozone on the Brink of Disaster: ‘It’s All Over. The Government is About to Collapse’

Posted on November 1, 2011 at 9:23pm by Becket Adams

The Greek government teetered and stock markets around the world plummeted Tuesday after months of negotiations to save the Greek economy were suddenly thrown into disarray by the prospect of a public vote.

One day after Prime Minister George Papandreou stunned Europe by calling for a referendum vote on the EU bailout, the ripples reached from Athens, where some of his own lawmakers rebelled against him, to Wall Street, where the Dow Jones industrial average plunged almost 300 points.

Papandreou convened his ministers Tuesday night, and a spokesman said the prime minister was sticking to his decision to hold the referendum. Papandreou has also called a vote of confidence in his government, to be held midnight Friday.

Why couldn’t they wait to be this stupid?

What’s the rush?
