Astus wrote:Europe near the end? Sounds like some bad newspaper headline. Does people have any idea of what Europe actually is outside this continent? Belarus, Macedonia, Norway, Moldavia, Albania, etc. are all in Europe but they are not members of the EU, and not all EU members use the Euro (17 of 27 member states use it). Also, a financial crisis, even if it goes to the worst possible level, would not mean the end of Europe. Many empires, kingdoms and nations have emerged and disappeared already, but the people are still here.
You are right; i should said "Eurozone near the end?" or even better "The stupid small countries of Eurozone, near the end?"
The smal stupid countries are Portugal, Greece, etc. And they are stupid only to the eyes of the Big Lords: Merkel, Durão Barroso, Sarkozy (now out), UK government, European Central Bank, etc. They use the sheeps (people from these "stupid" countries) to make them even more rich. Sarkozy for instance, needs my money to spend thousands of euros on food and ***** restaurants.
European Union is not about Union but survival of the fitest. EU is about big countries or big companies using small countries.
