Speaking defiant tone on Sunday evening, Greece’s new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras showed no signs of backing away from the commitments and pledges he and his party made to the Greek people (and that so many staunch status-quo huggers believe he will back down from). Raging that Greece «won’t take orders by email» any more, Tsipras warned «Greeks can’t take any more disappointment, » and pointedly stated that Syriza «will make Greece economically autonomous,» in about as strong a rejection of the EU’s ultimatum as is possible by not requesting a bailout extension and exclaiming unequivocally, «we will keep our pre-election promises. This is non-negotiable.» This is not just a Greek crisis but a European crisis «and the solution will be European.»
