I think these are all from the same speech, but I got them from two different articles, so maybe it isn’t. Front row seat to a revolution??? Let the fun begin!!!
Poland’s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski made an appeal for Germany to show more leadership in the crisis.
“You know full well that nobody else can do it,” he said in a speech in Berlin on Monday evening, referring to efforts to save Europe’s monetary union.
“I will probably be the first Polish foreign minister in history to say so, but here it is,” Radek Sikorski said in Berlin. “I fear German power less than I am beginning to fear German inactivity. You have become Europe’s indispensable nation.”
“The biggest threat to the security and prosperity of Poland would be the collapse of the eurozone,” Poland’s Sikorski said Monday. “And I demand of Germany that, for your own sake and for ours, you help it survive and prosper. You know full well that nobody else can do it.”

I predict a repeat of TARP 2008…If I recall it was first rejected…markets crashed and then TARP was re-voted on…well done politics…Nothing in Europe will happen until we’re all well past crisis point.
I still don’t think Italians “get it”…Nor do a lot of americans, but they can’t even be bothered talking with after some point…
Not that I’m cheering that I’ll be right, quite the opposite in fact…but I have no say in anything.
