Well, know that I had some beers I still don't see any advantage for the strong European countries to give up their national independence. Since I followed your advice I would like you to answer my question now. What is the advantage for Germany, Britain, France... to join one common country?

Your right. There is no advantage for us. Southern Europe is so different from northern Europe that we would always be paying for them, we allteady do at the moment and northern European taxpayers have had enough, we are to different economically and culturally

Germanic indecision and short-sightedness led to this!

Merkel kept the spotlight on Greece for such a long time...virtually gave the green light to the ratings agencies and the banking [City of London] fraternities to target Greece, so they did, they went for the Greek Jugular big style.

The German model for running the European Union is weighted in favour of the tight and compact Nordic countries.

Greece and France though, may re-look at the Idea of a Mediteranean Union to counter and compete with the Nordic countries.

A Europe without Greece in it is not really Europe at all!

From the river Iber in the West, to the river Evros in the East...that space in between is a Greek concept, Evropi!

That the Germans exacerbated the demise of the Greeks should be seen within the framework of Germanic Nordic resentment, watching Southern-Europeans enjoy life, whilst Germans had to put in 8 - 10 hours of hard graft pushing levers and pressing buttons.

I say, the Nordic country's deserve a Nordic Union.

The Southern-European countrys should reconsider the Mediteranean option.

There shouldant be any northern union ( Germany,britain,Holland,Scandi navia) or southern union (Greece,Italy,France,Spain,Por tugal) all European countries should be independent soveriegn countries, no unions. Europe is at its best when we have our independent countries, no European unions at all

People in britain don't talk bad about Greece, the home of civilisation. You won't find anti Greece media in britain, its German media campaign against Greece, they think your lazy and call you thieves but britain has never said that about Greece, we respect Greece but a European union was always a bad idea and should be dispanded

Germanic arrogance in the way authorities delt with the so called Greek crisis, led to some in Europe question the role of Germany as a leading contributor Nation who places self-interest above and beyond all else.

That Germanic indecision led to the crisis deepening, but worse, was the way in which German media directed the full focus of worlds attention on the lazy Greeks...this was the critical moment, when the rest of the EU realized that Germanic arrogance reared it's ugly head once again.

The way German authorities delt with Greece was somewhat different and contradictory to the way Germany delt with say the Irish economic situation.

My point is this: Germany deserves a Nordic Union to do it's Germanic business with!

That would free-up the likes of France, Greece Spain and others to rekindle the Idea of a Southern Mediteranean type Union where the mentality and way of doing things differs from the Nordic, rigid stern way!

The British ofcourse were the most exposed to Irish deby...but the Germans did assist there also!

You see, Fritz Gunther and Jurgens way of thinking, doing business or running an EU-Empire differs greatly from the Greco-Roman one!

The Nordic countries deserve their own Union, right!

What no one cares about is the opinion of an American on the European union. No one cares what you think, jog on

The French are not known for their domineering qualities...are they ???

Germanic arrogance has reared it's ugly head once more...they indirectly consider the Southern-European element to be somewhat lesser than the Northern one.

Like the Greco-Romans ruled over Europe, operating on an East - West axis...the EU [modern Roman-Empire] today, needs to operate on a North - South axis, on the basis of Germanic perceptions to do with work ethics, and other Nordic stuff!

I say again: Germanics deserve a Nordic Union of their own!
