    The EU's bluff was called and they've been unmasked for the liars and crooks that they are.  Merkel and Schauble are already whining about how "unfortunate" the vote in the Cypriot parliament was.  The banksters may be criminals, but precisely because they are criminals, someone had to stand up to them.  For three years, the EU and its austerity-driven insanity has run amok and destroyed thousands of lives and businesses in the process, without any consequences for those who devised these policies.  Perhaps one small country finally standing up to this blackmail will encourage others to do the same, regardless of what the banksters try to do.

    As for the abstentions, they are from the ruling party.  But even if the abstentions became votes in favor of such a haircut, it would not pass.
