Just read the article on a Dutch website and find it well worth posting it, fun read and who knows if there could be thruth to it

Source: Google translated

Between 1870 and 1915 The Netherlands build it a military defense to work around our capital. Under the name "Stelling van Amsterdam" they made a defensive ring of such a sloppy 135 km long composed of dikes, locks, dams and 42 real fortresses. The joke was that if the enemy would march to the capital (Amsterdam), one of the surrounding polders ater up so advancing troops, horses and equipment stuck in the mud would get caught. The battle was already won before they are all very well to begin, so the bright minds who thought the plan had taken shape. But even before the statement was very well off got it already in use. Because a tiny detail had missed, not much later the Netherlands within a # and a fart forced to its knees. Everyone knows that governing is ahead, but then of course there are visionaries in government. And that is where the shoe pinches.

(The thick Icelandic middle)

Our Dutch money-grubbing managers and private investers thought also to be visionary they put almost two billion euros in Icelandic banks . When that money melted like Icelandic ice cubes, huge number of people tried to retrieve their pennies. But yes, how to get any money, if there is non? The Netherlands put a considerable amount of pressure on the islanders to put it the resulting debts to repay. The Icelandic government devised a clever one-two by quickly calling a referendum to the people to determine whether there had been in repayment. The response of the people was both predictable and easy, 93% said no. And so the Icelandic government hid behind the voice of the people. wankers.

But this does not stop there, because there are two things in life you can't avoid : death and dept. Behind closed doors is the wrangling continues with a possible EU membership for Iceland as a back door. Then, when the are Icelanders with their backs against the wall and we demand the money something remarkable happens. Suddenly a volcano starts to smoke at THE moment when the wind is good chance that the two largest creditors, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, get a thick layer of ash over there roofs. All airports on non-active, a loss of unprecedented size, and our "soldiers" are on their knees.

Strangely enough the Icelanders themselves seem to have no problems, just flying merrily. Feel free to call me paranoid or fantasist but the timing could not be better and honestly, ash-spitting volcanoes are much more effective than flooded polders. Simply to wager that Iceland should join the EU and their friendly debt may "pay off" with .. uh .. uh .. well they probably have what is in Iceland, if only the art of tactical foresight.

kind regards,

It was the last wish of the Icelandic economy that it's ashes be spread over Europe.
