Ah, ok, thanks for the clarification....somehow I missed that blame game
on Germany in the news. I was busy following all of the tactics from the IMF.

Here comes all of the anti-German sentiment. "Germany is getting too big for its breeches." Well, once again we have a situation where Germany has saved and worked hard to rebuild its economy, was forced into the Euro as part of its "being allowed" to reunify, and now they're refusing to let their hard-working citizens be stuck with the bill ONCE AGAIN for the rest of Europe. They're breaking up the Euro, sure----and you should thank them for it. You think this whole business of letting countries play fast and loose with their own monetary policy because the rest of the Euro nations will just bail them out later is a GOOD idea? Think again. Sovereign nations, sovereign currencies. You forced Germany into this. Don't hate the player, hate the game. Germany is ending this dumb game for all of us. Thank you, Germany.

Russia has warned of tensions in North Korea slipping out of control, after Pyongyang said it was placing its missile units on stand-by.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the situation could slip "toward the spiral of a vicious circle".
Kim Jong-un made the missile order after talks responding to US stealth bomber flights over the Korean peninsula, state news agency KCNA said.
Senior EU officials have voiced concern as checks by Russian tax inspectors on foreign-funded non-governmental organisations multiply.
On Wednesday searches took place at the Moscow offices of Human Rights Watch and Transparency International.
Two German political NGOs were searched earlier in Moscow and St Petersburg.
Putin, accompanied by his defense minister, flew in a military helicopter to watch the maneuvers Friday.
