No you wont. Greek citizens will work hard and pay every penny back or else the leopard 2 tanks go to the streets. You will love the union or then you will love the union and have several bruises from police baton.

Greece has enough money to pay pensions, salaries and bondholders through mid-November, the finance minister said Tuesday, as global markets sank on worries that a messy default could bring down European banks and trigger another global recession.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

What they said about Venizelos is quite true. They follow the opposite way that Kirchner did to save Argentina back then. What I did read recently was that Kirchner privatized all the national firms and asked for the debt's deletion to 75%, while he DIDN'T cut any salaries or pension and anything else… If Kirchner was alive, he'd ask the stupid Greek politicians to ban IMF from Greece and follow his way.

Even if he did that, it wouldn't solve all the problems of today. The pension system over there (and in most western countries) is top heavy. You don't have enough workers to support people being paid out for 20, 25, even 30 years or more in retirement.
