Letter to President Obama never really sent @BarackObama @whitehouse

Dear Mr. President,

The current Greek Prime Minister must have been unbearably pushy to secure an official visit to the White House –an importunate invitation seeker, no doubt; it’s not hard to tell. So, I can sympathize with your decision to give up.

Why not, one might argue. Besides,  Greece is viewed by tradition as a developed Western country of great historical significance, and one which upholds the democratic values, while maintaining strong ties of friendship with the United States. Right?

German debt to Greece (video)


This report by Kostas Vaxevanis for the Greek show «Pandora’s Box» (NET, Feb. 21th 2012), investigates the German debt to Greece, accounting of over €400 billion, with interest rates included. This is higher than the current Greek external debt. It is made by the reparations that Germany still refuses to pay to Greece since WWII, plus a loan supplied forcibly by the occupied Greece to Nazi Germany at the same period.

Does Greece, therefore, owe as much as it does or should someone else pay long overdue debts? Watch the documentary broadcast on Greek public television with English subtitles (press the CC button)
