Germany, in the wake of WWI, was given reparations to pay, very heavy. Efforts to pay it may have precipitated the hyper-inflation of the Weimar Republic.
In the wake of WWII, the US came up with the Marshall Plan, which had a better outcome.
Just a thought, but Germany and its allies have won an economic war, with Greece in a Depression and heading into chaos. Maybe something along the lines of the Marchall Plan would be in order, rather than this determined effort to exact their pound of flesh, verging on reparations.
