I am waiting

For Godot, for Christ, for any goddamn thing, just come to some fucking conclusion.

But no, the interminable and intractable wheelings and dealings amongst the Euro countries continues to seesaw from rumor driven hope to rumor driven despair, Merkel and Sarkozy are either lovey-dovey or snarling like feral gerbils, while talk of haircuts oscillates from a third to two thirds on a daily basis. So please stop, OK?

I fear not, the political weakness of the EU will only continue to grow. The demands made on the individual countries, as far as they are met, only weakens their economies further, thus raising more demands, etc.

The real danger is not economic breakdown, it is the political disintegration that is already at danger levels. Merkel, Sarkozy, Berlusconi, Papendreus, Cameron are all cardboard leaders (like our own President Drone), they lack both vision and will. The door is being opened for virulent nationalism and strongman solutions, who else can stand up to the banks?
