Greece claims Germany owes it €162bil in war reparations

#1  Postby GT2211 » Apr 09, 2013 7:27 pm

Greece is considering slapping a €162 billion invoice on Germany as compensation for the Second World War.

Athens has compiled a top-secret report that says the cash - enough to solve the Greeks' debt crisis - is owed in war reparations, Der Spiegel reported....

I guess that is one way of solving the austerity/debt crisis.

You'd have thought they would have asked for this before they went bankrupt and required bailing out from several other European nations that are also in tight financial situations. Or even before the second time they had to be bailed out.

I think Germany has given it's reparations by keeping Greece as a functioning country, twice. Ungrateful, cunts.

Also, isn't it a little late for reparations? The government isn't National Socialist and anyone that had an active part in the attacks on Greece are probably all dead.

I think they feel Germany is pushing the debt crisis onto them.

Can we claim war reparations from the Danes for all the Viking raids?

Don't forget the Romans.

Mind you, once the Commonwealth gets wind of this we're stuffed.
