Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Let's suppose I'm living in in Greece or Italy and I see this crap happening in Cyprus. Question: What kind of warning were the Cypriots given that all this nonsense was in the works? My read is ... none. They tried this theft on a Friday hoping most people would miss what was happening until the Cyprus politicians blessed the theft. Now Cyprus is trying to fend off a bona fide bank run. So, what's to stop this same crap from happening in Greece or Italy? Should the average citizen take a chance with their life savings if they don't need to? It's obvious this crap happens without any warning and that's the killer of confidence.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
