Human Rights Take a Back Seat to Sovereignty

An international court ruled on Friday that Germany cannot be held liable for paying reparations to the descendents of victims of a massacre perpetrated during World War II in Italy. The verdict has implications far beyond Nazi-era war crimes, and was welcomed by countries far and wide.

some solid reading material, and the comments section is gold...

The same person,who told me that contacted me today to tell me that the demand for Safe deposit boxes has grown so hugely that in the area bordering Italy, hotels are now renting out their own safety deposit boxes.

First the Greeks now the Italians. Capital Flight in full effect. But don’t worry I am sure Mr Monti has it all under control.

He registered the webpage www.debtdeflation.com dedicated to analyzing the “global debt bubble”, which soon attracted a large international audience. At the same time he began appearing on Australian radio and television with his message of approaching financial collapse and how to avoid it. In November 2006 he began publishing his monthly DebtWatch Reports (33 in total). These were substantial papers (upwards of 20 pages on average) that applied his previously developed analytical framework to large amounts of empirical data. Initially these papers analyzed the Global Financial Collapse that he was predicting and then its realization.

Re: Financial clusterfuck in Europe

My question to everyone is; since UK refuses to be part of the Eurozone, why the hell are they still part of the EU?

Re: Financial clusterfuck in Europe

Try googling "Eurozone" and "EU". Might help.

Not trying to be rude btw.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

The EU existed long before the euro and UK isn't the only member which hasn't adopted the currency.

Maybe you should do the same?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maastricht_Treaty
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opt-out...European_Union

Again, I'm asking, why is the UK allowed to opt-out on the Eurozone yet allowed to stay in the EU and dictate monetary policy? It's counter productive. Opt-in or fuck off imho.

Re: Financial clusterfuck in Europe

Why stop there? Why not cut off trade and go to war with UK?

Time for Europe to copy the African way of doing politics.

yeah, disappointing... and really unexpected to be honest... taming the med countries should not be so easy... looks like it is gonna have to be italy, spain or portugal to say 'no, f** off' and force the the original creditors hand because sure as shit ireland will bend over for the any more bailouts - in fact, i predict that ireland will even go a step further and lube up the rectal cavity for the emu...

Re: Financial clusterfuck in Europe

according to most polls, greeks overwhelmingly favour an official bankruptcy declaration. who are we to question their opinion? let them go bust. obviously it's gonna have ramifications but long-term nothing else is gonna work properly.

they choose argentina instead of latvia, why tell them off? let democracy do its magic.

Re: Financial clusterfuck in Europe

RIP Greece, 1832-2012.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)
