Safe Mode: On
Violence across the Middle East... of Europe

Hundreds of thousands of Europe's beleaguered citizens went on strike or snarled the streets of capitals of Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal, at times clashing with riot police, as they demanded that governments stop cutting benefits and create more jobs.

  • They want their cheese and they want it now. That is exactly what you get when you surrender your freedom to the government and expect them to create jobs.

    Self reliance, hard work, principles, and sacrifice are the key ingredients to success, not a government handout.

  • OK so lets say they stop austerity measures and had you freebees, how the FUCK are they going to pay for it? YOU ARE BROKE! DEAL WITH IT!

    When 1 out of 3 people work for the government and are “entitled” to retire at 55 with full benefits THIS is what you can expect.

    The private sector creates jobs and wealth the GOVERNMENT CREATES THIS SHIT!

  • Screw the bankers, default on our loans.
    Borrow money to keep services intact.
    Borrow MORE money and create government jobs.
    Screw the bankers, default the new loans.

    Repeat until there are no more fools to underwrite us...

      Actually, the economics of our country isnt TOO bad - we aint broke YET, our Liberal gov actually had more surplus than what they knew what to do with, then our Labor Gov got in and is steadily screwing it up - last count the next election will have the Libs back in, and yes, this was on the media this morning - I watched it - they said that the Greeks dont want to meet the new austerity measures put in by the German Gov. I just hope and pray that Obama can fix the Economics of the More..

    • @rpgmw3 that isn't true you fought for your freedom against one of the most powerful countries in the world at the time. the point im trying to make is that if the British colonies in america had the police system backed up by the media, you guys would still be subjects.

      what is happening in Greece is horrible, the British did the same thing to Iceland that the Germans are now doing to the Greeks.

      the German private banks give unrealistic and stupid loans to individual Greek people. when the p More..

    • @rpgmw3 Peaceful revolutions? You've had one so far, and it is not known as the revolutionary peace. And beyond that you have send the CIA to train violent revolutionaries around the world. And then in Libya, the peaceful bombing of civilians in the name of the revolution. So peaceful!

  • This is what china desperately hopes to avoid, except there will be 1 billion of them rioting. The regime has a huge incentive to cheat, and steal to keep the trade imbalance going.

  • Funny title. I'll allow that Greece can be seen as being in the middle east of europe. But Italy in in the center. And worst of all; Spain and Portugal are the two most westerly countries in Europe.
