London (CNN) – The spectre of a two-tiered Europe has once again muscled its way center stage, as rumblings grow around the discrepancies between the strong and the weak economies struggling to co-exist on the continent.
Suggestions the eurozone is diverging into two groups is hardly controversial: One only has to look the economic performances of its 17 countries during the last 18 months.
Clearly some economies are thriving under the common currency, while others have collapsed. Greece can’t pay its bills and is surviving on the funds of Europe’s bailout pot and the International Monetary Fund. Portugal and Ireland are, of course, in the same club.
Germany’s economy – which makes up a mighty 27% of the eurozone’s – is led by exports, has benefited from growth in emerging markets such as China, and has been under the steady guidance of Chancellor Angela Merkel. It would clearly lead any club of elite eurozone members.
But increased speculation of some sort of two tier structure not only within Europe but the euro bloc was Thursday fed by a press report – later denied – that German and French officials were discussing a European Union overhaul and potentially smaller eurozone. This, in turn, threw into sharp focus comments previously made by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

This article by CNN was written thousands of years ago by the prophet Daniel. Daniels article is only better as it tells us what will happen in the end. Read it for yourself:
Dan 2:4142-44 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Every day I get more and more excited as I read news that can just as well be written out of Scripture. Prophecy is getting more clear every passing day.
