STRATFOR: Political Will Needs to Step Up

Load images to view Angela Merkel's quote and our translation
It's no surprise that political leaders don't always say what they mean. Sometimes the motive is clear - like with "It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is," and "They misunderestimated me."

But more often than not you need a translator. Take German Chancellor Angela Merkel's recent speech at an event in Berlin. "Political solutions," new "treaties"—sounds great, right? STRATFOR readers know what this really means for struggling eurozone nations: If you want Germany to bail you out, you're gonna have to fall in line and hand over some control.
