Why should they take personal responsibility? Seriously, what possible purpose would doing something hard, owning up to your mistakes, going without some “entitlements” serve? For them to do ANYTHING, without regard to how small - is utterly pointless.
You know, I know, and they know, that “someone” else will have to come swoop in, invest Trillions of dollars, and patch things up again. That “someone” is the USA. Always has been, always will be - regardless how stupid such a move is.
Meanwhile, they will continue to bitch and whine about how their rescue didn’t come fast enough, or do enough for them; and they will curse us for their burdens and responsibilities we pick up.
They have done it before, and they will do it again. And the most insane part of it all - neither we, nor they will learn a single lesson from history.
I don’t think the US can rescue them. First, the US is hardly strong enough to do so. Second, there are too many countries going down the same toilet for one country to rescue them.
We don’t have the money this time.....
