Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This isn't some high-minded debate about possibilities, J.  This is really happening.

And not calling it a currency crisis has a vaguely Baghdad Bob-ish feel.

You dismissed English-speakers like Krugman and Stiglitz -- who'd warned about this about a decade before it finally happened -- as "sneering anti-European" talking heads, which I called you on a year or two ago when this first blew up.  Now it's all come true, but in a more violent way than either of them were discussing back in the late-'90s/early-'00s, and you're still fighting the English vs Not-English battle when the real fight has devolved into Sanity vs Insanity with very real consequences.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
