The thing that is missing is the exposure of the US banking system to the crisis in the form of derivatives, as the actual ownership of the sovereign debt by US institutions is "relatively" small.

As a tip, the buzz word you will often hear in the media to let you know that the Eurozone debt crisis is the topic they are about to talk about, is Greece.
