Greek Parliament Gives Papandreou Vote, Austerity, Riots to Follow

According to sources, the Greek parliament gave Prime Minister George Papandreou a needed vote of confidence, allowing for an infusion of $17 billion in fresh loans from the IMF/EU.

With the public now facing even harsher austerity measures, rioting and demonstrations are expected.

No actual tally has come through, but the decision seems clear: Bail out the banks and keep the people under thumb.
