this is no ordinary piece of Euro-bureaucracy: This is the kind of thing a surrendering field marshal signs in a railway car in the forest at the end of a bloody war.
Though the European Union has always required a partial surrender of sovereignty from its member states, Greece no longer has much sovereignty at all. ... I don't believe anybody, least of all the Greeks, knew that the European Union had so much power over its member states.
...Euro-neo-colonialism, in all its glory, has arrived.
In all the excitement over Greek finances, French and German (and USian) bank bailouts, and other European problems, I keep coming back to this:
It has been 65 years and 3 days since the last shooting war in Europe ended. This is, afaik, a record length of time for peace in Europe. Not a modern record, an all time in recorded history record.
So the EU is doing some good.
