No-one held a gun to Cyprus's head when they signed on to the EU.
On the contrary, the deal was more Faustian, then anything else.
Well, the devil is calling in his marker. Time to pay up!

Indeed, I don't feel sorry for any of them. They ASKED for this, when willingly handed over their sovereignty to the Germans and the French, then to an international banking cartel.
Isn't a bit unfair to lump all of "them" in with the politicians and officials who did that in the first place? I hardly think this guy who chose to retire in Cyprus with his life savings had any part in it did he, so why must he now pay the price? I highly doubt the majority of the population had any intention of handing over their sovereignty to the international banking cartel. They were scammed by their so called leaders who conduct these deals behind closed doors.edit on 31/3/2013 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
