Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The quo is the survival of the Euro-system. It is almost as bad as the situation in 2008 when the biggest banks were balking at the only solution on the table in the USA - taking the TARP money. If nothing was done the system implodes and them along with it. But they had a hard time getting beyond their entitled mentality so as to grasp the opportunity for survival. The current situation in Europe makes those involved in that fiasco look like geniuses.

I say 'on the table' because there were other, better solutions available, but they were not under consideration due to the dereliction of duty by 99% of the US population when it came to insuring that the US government was not subordinated to Wall Street.
