It might sound silly to you but it is a matter of honor for Greeks.

And what ever you love will be used against you. If Greece holds fast to that idea they will have been about the only honorable player in the whole sordid game. How is it honorable to be defrauded of your means of existence by those for whom honor is but a quaint concept? Or, for that matter, even by those who are too blind to see the dishonor inherent in their own actions?

I would propose Greece as the "Mark of the Century", but that probably is properly earned by the citizens of the USA for their staunch support of the "defense of freedom and democracy" by the US Government.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
