Thugocracy on Display

“To have a default and to have real difficulty paying wages to the public servants, to the schools, to the hospitals, it will mean the paralysis of the country. I΄m sure the majority of the Greek people are reasonable people and that they don΄t want that kind of chaos to come to their country.”

This from European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso. This ever so honorable gentleman and his ilk have been labelled "technocrats" by the fawning media. I put this question to you, dear reader-- How does this stated sentiment of el Presidente Licenciado Barroso toward the Greek people differ (except in the sheer enormity of scale) from the shakedown tactics of a Mafia Capo extortionist?
