Icelanders are not terrorists; they are inconsiderate big pocket- spenders (*). Just a generation ago, the most common cuisine was fish, fish, and fish together with some sheep head. Now – or at least until this year- the Icelandic people chew on golden geese. The Icelanders are now looking for someone to blame for their deteriorating economy. Well, first of all they have all to blame on their own Government that has been advocating, subsidizing, and supporting a nationalistic protectionist expansionist economy which is relying on money that doesn’t exist and banks that are owned by former politicians. It is somewhere here they should start to look for the scapegoats. Maybe I’m missing the forest through all the trees here but I think US Congressman Dr. Ron Paul puts it very sincere when he said this;
“As long as we try to live beyond our means we are destined to live beneath our means.”
//Dr. Ron Paul
(*) To generelize is wrong, but very, very funny.
