Greece needs a military dictatorship. Communists and leftists should be lined up and shot against a wall.

As I figure there will be a need for 3 party coalition - New democracy, PASOK and the Democratic left.

Well, the Democratic left is actually the communist left. Tsipras is a cocckroach. A drug addict in his younger years, not attending high school, participating in violent riots, supporting anarchists, etc.

A criminal, or a "half criminal" "halb kriminelle" as the German newspapers put it. He is indeed a criminal.

This cocckroach exploited the crisis and people's suffering to get votes. Now he is considered as a legitimate politican. No alliance should be made with him. And people of his kind should be exterminated.

"The month of May is the heart of spring even though we may not feel it in London yet. May 6 may become the beginning of the ‘European spring’. The expected victory of Francois Hollande in the French elections and his rejection of the fiscal pact will be the first defeat of the policies Ms Merkel and the hapless EU technocrats have imposed on Europe. But the result of the Greek elections may have even greater symbolic significance.

The elections mark the end of the second act of the Greek tragedy with a whole cast of formerly dominant parties and politicians exiting stage right.
Last week the OECD announced that Greek average income fell by 25.3 % in 2011 an unprecedented reduction anywhere in peacetime (the British fell by 2%), with unemployment at 21% and youth unemployment at 50%[http://www.focus-fen.net/i ndex.php?id=n276580]. Yet the second bailout loan as well as tax income will go to an escrow account and will be used to repay debt before salaries and pensions. PASOK calls itself socialist but, unlike Hollande, it accepted the austerity measures without negotiation or objection, with the young, the old and the poor as modern day Ifigeneias sacrificed to save the skin of economic and political Agamemnons."

but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.

Let's not forget that if it wasn't for Germany there would be no Grease today, if there was no Germany, Grease would have remained an extension of the Ottoman Empire. Genetically speaking Greasers are racially Anatolians and this is why they cluster with Ashkenazi jews and Turks.

Greece has basically two choices:

1. achieve budget surplus and start to really pay back its dept.
2. go bankrupt, achieve budget balance and restart the failed state of Greece.

Budget deficit and excess loaning is not an option any more.
