« There should never be a Fourth Reich »
- Jean Thiriart (1965).
Tsipras speaks of the « historic obligation » to demand repayment of war indemnities to Berlin! Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke on Sunday, of the « historical obligation » of his country to demand war reparations to Germany, a subject on which Berlin has already said « no ». « There is a moral obligation to our people, to history, to all the European peoples who fought and gave their blood against Nazism, a historical obligation » to call on Germany « war indemnities and repayment of forced loan » that the Nazis had compelled the country to, and that was never repaid, launched Mr. Tsipras.

The Fed chairman from 1987 to 2006 also found that the Eurozone could not continue in its present form without political integration.
