    If they did, they've more than paid it back in E.U bailouts.

    Or perhaps the Vatican would release all the nazi pillage they stole when they went walkabout all over Europe, but maybe the vatican is just keeping it safe until they feel the time is right to give it back to its rightful owners. That should help Greece out to the tune of a few Billion.:poke:

    Greeks owe money and gold to all nations Alexander went through.
    Germany was also occupied and patents, gold and scientists were stolen.
    Germans don't cry about this issue.

    They 'stole' nothing. They saved countless priceless treasures from theft or destruction. And now, through their own goodwill, they restore and store those treasures and hold them in trust for mankind. For audit, each and every one is valued at 1 euro. If it wasn't for the Catholic Church, those treasures would be lost forever... or in the hands of private individuals.

    The Church does not own these works of art. It cares for them - on behalf of mankind. And they do that at no cost to anyone but themselves.

    All that, and we are also the biggest Charity on earth. We feed more of the world's most poor, we educate more of the world's population, we care for the world's sick, we help the world's homeless... We do more than the rest of you will ever do. And we do it without expecting any gratitude, we do it without reward, we do it because we are Catholic.

    It's great to be us.

    The US waived the war reparations after WW2 because we didn't want another Hitler rising in Germany... (see WW1 and its aftermath). Greece got themselves into this and now they're playing the Hitler card.

    HAHHAHAH what a load of bullshit.

    The US waved war reparations out of self interest. They were thinking of the Soviets...

    Also the US had raped Germany for all valuables already so there was not much left any ways.
