LOL Belgium

So, you probably don't know this but there's a lot of shit going down in the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg). Basically the Belgians are all very angry about the fact that the Dutch government bought up all the Dutch Fortis assets to get Fortis out of trouble (Fortis is Belgium's pride bank, it got into a lot of trouble because they overdid themselves buying the biggest Dutch bank. And now there's all this with the recession.). All the Dutchies are gleeful. So this has pretty much developed into Dutch-Belgian pissing contest number 134252. And I know this is facetious but I can't help but LOL. You should see some of the headlines ("Great Belgian Bank Dead!" "The Dutch cheekily take over Fortis!")
Oh Belgium, I think there are some other things you should worry about (Seriously, almost two years and still no coalition? Geez). Me and my dad have a bet about how long it'll take till it splits into Flanders and Wallonia. Let me tell you, we're not optimistic.
