If the allies sincerely wanted to turn it into farmland to prevent germany from any opportunity at instigating another world war, they could have done so
Of-course they do. For nearly a decade they lived high on the hog.
It was a Socialist dream land where a massive public sector provided great pay, awesome benefits and public sector jobs.
But like all Socialist utopian iniatives it was doomed to fail. They ran out of other people's money.
They're debt exceeded their revenues substantially and to make up for the lack of revenue they borrowed massive amounts of money and distributed toxic securities throughout European banks.
And why wouldn't anyone lend them money ? According to the Greek Government they were well within the limits spelled out under the Maastricht treaty.
Problem was the Greek Government was corrupt and withheld vital data that would have exposed their massive deficit spending.
It doesn't surprise me that the Greek people support this idiot. Theyre predisposed to a corrupt Socialist agenda.
Now, they're really screwed. No bank or Country in their right mind is ever going to buy another Greek bond.
As a Country and a people all they know is the same cradle to the grave system that got them in this position in the first place.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

Greece is making it up as they go along. The only agreement they will honor is the kind that forgives its massive pile of debt.
Oh and Im sure there will have to be a rider in that agreement " stating that they'l'll receive more bailout money.
At no cost ofcourse.
" If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else ? "
What about development of third kind. The animosity caused between Greece and EU is sure to be exploited from other world leading countries, such as: Russians (same religion), Chinese, Indians, etc.
They could land Greeks money in return for anti-EU and USA "favors."
