The Fourth Reich

The baton of crashing the markets each Spring has passed from the Greeks to the Tea Party. There will now be order in Greece as they goose-step to German austerity dictates. According to this Stratfor article, the Germans will now prop-up all the tottering regimes of the European Union (via the EFSF) as they strive for great-power status.

And a new era in European history has begun.

The EU was originally designed by the Lilliputians of Europe to tie down the German Gulliver. But now Gulliver has broken loose and is gobbling up the Lilliputians. Unless the wheels come off of Germany itself, there will be order in Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain, Italy, what-have-you. Betting against these “nations” is now like betting against Germany. Good luck with that.
