Athens' plight just a little foretaste

In its dealings with Greece the EU is clinging to rules that are doomed to fail, the left-liberal daily Delo criticises: "The problem is that the EU and Brussels can't be right a priori in the dispute with Athens because the member states are still acting as if their rules were okay. And as if another Greek amputation was inevitable. Berlin is even less right because it is intent on healing all Europe with measures that have been proven wrong, and it has intentionally or unintentionally become a despot in Europe. Athens is perhaps really an excess that can't be saved by the rules that apply in Europe, but the Greeks aren't the main problem here. The main problem is the wrong approach to saving what led to this excess. The longer Europe sticks to this approach, the more likely it is that it will end up in the situation the Greeks are already in."
