, true, but international perception of Greece isn't going to get much worse, where international perception of the EU as a whole still very much can, and I believe will. It's even possible that Greece will leave the EU entirely after the strong feelings of mutual mistrust that have been created in the eurozone dealings, which would have a lot deeper consequences yet. Even if all that happens is that Greece takes a compromise and is left to make amends, the northern members of the EU already look imperial to much of southern Europe.
And let's be frank, Greece lied about money, but compared to the actions of almost every one of their neighbors over the last century? Greece birthed a democracy without becoming a walled state, sponsoring a genocide, or governing under an absolutist religious regime. They are currently, along with Italy, supporting a huge influx of refugees without any international acknowledgement of the expense that entails. Their current government, far from being the cause of corruption as portrayed by the negotions, came to the table after realizing what the old government had done, but is now being told to step down or face excile (from the eurozone, which it seems provides most of the meaningful benefits for a place like Greece in terms of being an EU member).
Maybe I am wrong: the US currently has a state and a territory on the verge of bankruptcy, and I am proud that "kicking them out" of anything is off the table. In fact, I think this is a great time for US citizens to discuss increasing inclusiveness for Puerto Rico, which has suffered at least in part from not having a seat at the national government. They are also a good case study for why the demands from Europe on Greece aren't going to provide long term recovery and stability: Puerto Rico has implemented austerity and higher revenue measures, and is still loosing money. From the cuts Geece has already made, there are obviously not any clear paths out that can avoid renegotiating debt, but if that can be done in a way that avoids further splits and loss of confidence, then that should be at the top of everyone's priorities.
