Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or, they can use the greatest Greek weapon they ave, and it's quite an effective weapon that the Greeks have perfected. Use their lazy sunny dispositions, acumen for dysfunction and ineptitude, to implement the austerity measures in a fashion that creates an even bigger black hole and sops that next tranche of funds instantly. It would give pause to the Europeans who meet in the next two months to determine the way forward.

... a really good way to get your activist killed.

Dumbasses who show off pretend-weapons around trigger-happy security gorillas tend to get real dead, real quick. And in that particular case, I can't say I blame the trigger-happy security gorillas.
