From what I've seen, the best they can do is stock Wal-mart shelves. Why are they considered such a threat? Half of their population is starving, and the other half is sucking off of the US's hind tit.

If anyones watching Euro stocks right now, this article says it best.
The early rally in Europe is already over, and the mood has turned to the negative, big time.
Italy, which had been up over 3% in early going is now off 0.5%.
Germany is down about 2%.
France is down 1.8%.
In the U.S., futures are down about 2.5% — close to the worst of the day — after at one point being just off less than 1%.
Already a crazy day, and most of you aren’t even up yet.
Treasury yields have also been up and down this a.m., while U.S. stock futures for their part have at least been consistent so far: Down, down and down.
And here's a screenshot from marketwatch.com
