It looks like it is over for Greece.  They lied, they cheated, they brow-beat, they guilted...but the end game is upon us it seems...they've run out of other people's money.

The only thing that could save them now is that the Eurocratic creditor troika doesn't like the looks of the fallout as they allow Greece to go over the falls and they pull Greece back with some magic tether.  It is a remote possibility and, frankly, the aren't worthy of it.  Sure it is tragic for the Greek people, but they've made poor choices in how they are governed, and need to face the consequences (the Greeks are not alone in this, btw, just ahead of the game).

I believe that the world was operating off of a flawed notion, that Tsipras was credible.  Truth is that SYRIZA's nature was hiding in plain sight.  Radical leftists take you where they want to go, regardless of whether that's really where you want to go.  There is a good argument that SYRIZA got elected on a protest vote, on a wave a dissatisfaction with previous governments, not on a positive vote for what SYRIZA actually believes.  But lefties don't care, they get elected by whatever means and they take you where they are going, all else be damned.

Let's hope that something good - and it certainly can - comes out of the wreckage.
