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

Because Italy is not currently repeating its war crimes.

Also, Italy isn't owed nearly as much as Germany.

Manufacturing a barely acceptable excuse to shaft the German creditors, official and private, and nationalize the assets bought by German oligarchs during the forced privatizations, would go much further toward making the Greek books balanced again than doing the same to Italy.

And Germany has the same number of votes as Italy in those institutions where it matters.

That's not the way how an argument is held at ET. Also to Jake: keep it civil. Your suggestion that Germany is currently engaged in "war crimes" is incendiary. To all: No more insulting claims which you can't back up.
