Digging for Nazi gold

In many ways, the Greek government is a lot like a high school student—it constantly struggles to meet important deadlines. Not to belittle the efforts of my peers, but Greece’s deadlines are probably infinitely more important. At this point no one should be unfamiliar with the Greek debt crisis and its very real repercussions, including the various deadlines that have been set for paying off portions the nation’s debt.

While the country has somewhat recovered in the last year it is still grasping at any opportunity to better its position economically. Some of these desperate measures include a recent plea to Germany, requesting that they pay more than 300 billion dollars in war reparations due to damages caused by Nazis in the 1940s. If Greece keeps playing the historical damages card, they should maybe start to worry about how much the conquests of Alexander the Great will cost them.
