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

So you support somebody who isn't credible.

Syriza was "not credible" as late as the spring of 2010.

Excellent non-argument for legitimising nationalist xenophobes.

credible once the Troika are at Greece's throat. And by then, the mortality rate is already rising, much less civil liberties and social gains being gutted.

In other words, this should not be acceptable.

Keep in mind the apt phrase "the hun is at your throat or at your feet."

There is value in keeping the Unserious left-wing option alive even if it only becomes credible once mortality starts rising and the hospitals start closing and the lights start going out.

Because the alternative to keeping the Unserious left-wing alternative alive is that the only parties left standing after the Very Serious People drive the country into a ditch are the far-right militias.

It's not particularly rewarding work, but it's important.
