Europe according to Greece:   Europe according to Germany:   Europe according to Italy:   Europe according to France:   Europe according to Spain:   Europe according to Switzerland:   Europe according to Britain:   Europe according to the US:   Europe according to Russia:   Europe according Poland:   Europe according Turkey:   Europe according to the Vatican:   and, as a special bonus, Europe according to Berlusconi:
