How do you frame the Greek bailout? Was it irresponsible Greek borrowers or Irresponsible German lenders?

Much news has focused on the bailout of Greece’s government. Along with that much finger wagging along with condescendingly toned speeches directed at Greece however the bailouts Greece is receiving are actually mostly going to German banks that gave Greece the money. How you frame the issue changes where you lay the blame. Framing the language is an important aspect of the way these issues are received and thought about and discussed.
