When to get into share market?

I've observed the following regarding people who wanted to get (back) into the share market:

When a crisis has a significant chance of happening (e.g. debt default by Greece): "Oh, better don't buy shares now. Market is likely to go down."

When the above crisis does happen: "See, I'm right! Better hold on to my money and wait out the crisis."

When situation improves but still not out of the wood: "Can suddenly get worse. Better hold on to cash."

When crisis is clearly over: "Market is too expensive now. Will wait till it drops."

Rinse and repeat.
