Cartoon Slideshow: Merkel Visits Greece — Briefly

These political cartoons satirize Germany's Angela Merkel visit to Greece this week. It was brief but certainly daring, since the German Chancellor is not exactly the most popular figure in Greece at the moment. Merkel after all is responsible for forcing Greeks onto an extreme austerity diet. Then again, it's also thanks to Merkel that Greece is still in the Euro game. These political cartoons reflect the saint and sinner image of Angela Merkel in Greece.
