Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wish you could add a P.S. that includes links to all your predictions that came true and say "you can't say something 'could not have been predicted' that WAS predicted."  

It's similar to the situation one finds oneself in when asking "since a person like ME could assess Bush's war claims and analyze his statements and positions and the other available evidence to conclude that he was A LIAR, why couldn't those people in the Congress figure that out, too?"  "Who could have known he would lie to us?" they ask, and millions of us answer "Us, you d***wads!"

So now they say "No-one could have predicted this," and we answer "Well, actually, just for starters, there's Jerome in Paris," so I hope those words turn into tomatoes and go flying back at you, Greenspan.
