Yes,let Germany pay reparation to Grece first and then Grece can leave the EU,UK is also about to leave the EU,several nationalist parties in West Europe have promised to leave the EU if elected .

With or without the EU life goes on,Grece is not going to disappear.
Israel collects no money from Germany. But people who suffered at the hands of Nazis do. Figured you would take a poke at Israel.

Greece had the opportunity and took it way back at the end of WWII. They don't get a second bite at that apple.

As I said, Greece wants other peoples money to fund their socialism. Isn't going to happen.

That is nonsense. Greece is not socialist, it is as socialist as the US or Britain. Don't forget that all Western countries are hugely in debt, our whole way of living is based on debt. The only problem is that Greece has no big economy to support the usual debt, it never has and probably never will, which is a problem when at the same time Greece is part of the EU and thus expected to have a similar level as rich Nordic countries.

Another problem is massive tax evasion, which however is also not related to socialism. It is an ethical problem.

Hell; Poland was hurt MUCH more than Greece 70 years ago but, it's turning into a real success story. Sorry Greece; grow UP, please!

Correct. I'd say that considering Germany was divided up amongst the allies and the Soviet Union and split the nation in two, that they've more than paid their debt for WWII.

Maybe to the winners, but maybe not to the losers?

The Greeks have been a trampled culture since losing to the Ottomans.
