"France and Germany are convinced Greece's future is in the eurozone," goes part of a joint statement by Merkozy after a conference call with George Papandreou, in which the Greek leader reiterated "his government's determination to take all necessary measures to meet targets."

    Yeah, we believe this statement much more than the last dozen or so. The enablers in Germany are on their way out...

    fyi, greece's state bank just tapped emergency funding facility because greeks continue to take their money out of banks. this false rally means nothing. 1219 next resistance for S&P 500. perfect opportunity to increase hedges.


    just in case you don't know, the greeks citizens themselves could cause a default.


    by the way, the u.s. is heading to recession and the FED can't do anything signficant about it. also, republicans will not pass obama's increasing deficit plan to spend money the government doesn't have to pretend everything is ok.

    What a crock!
    Merkozy want Greece to hang on until they can default and then be bailed out with the (still to be ratified) EFSF, or whatever bullsh%& plan they have cooked up!
    This is the failure of the European socialist nightmare imploding on itself!
    Hey people in Europe, "Ever have the feeling your being cheated?"
    The "Fabian Society" experiment is over!
    Your scuzball, socialist / communist leaders have sold you down the river.
    May God watch over you, and help you weather their failed foray into global governance!

    I really wonder what people expected to hear from this conversation. It was a 3-way...they were literally banging it out...because that is how the Europeans do things...they BANG shit out.


    Honestly, Greece is going to fail in 3 months...6 months. They are going to fail. Germany and France are going to look like idiots for causing all this trouble setting up all these funds and basically draining all the money from the countries to feed one useless piece of shit.


    Don't people wonder how it is possible that Greece as a country isn't sued for lying to get into the Eurozone...continuing to lie while in the Eurozone and now lying to stay in the Eurozone.
