What does an iron chancellor have to do to be loved these days? After scrambling 7,000 members of the Greek police force out of an early prepaid retirement for her brief, still inexplicable 6 hour visit to Athens last Tuesday, which caused the now usual Syntagma square rioting, Merkel next took the stage in a rainy Stuttgart, in a show of support for the local mayor candidate Sebastian Turner, which promptly devolved into 14 minutes of continuous booing.
More pictures from the same rally, where people apparently were not too keen on WWIII:
Don't worry though - as was reported yesterday, despite violent protests everywhere that the heads of the European oligarchy go, the Nobel peach prize committee saw it fit to reward the continent, where the democratic process has been usurped in every country and replaced with banker imposed technocratic puppets, with this year's peace price. The reasoning, according to Thorbjørn Jagland, head of the Nobel committee, is that Europe shrugged off the euro's woes and said the EU had been a force for peace both after the second world war, binding Germany and France together, and following the bloody slaughter of the 1990s in the Balkans. Too bad Yugoslavia is neither part of the EU nor, of the Eurozone, but details. He added: "The main message is that we need to keep in mind what we have achieved on this continent, and not let the continent go into disintegration again." The collapse of the EU could lead to a resurgence of the "extremism and nationalism" that had led to so many "awful wars", he warned bluntly." Maybe he is referring to the surge of nationalism now seen in Greece, where the neo-nazi Golden Dawn is now the third most popular political power and rapidly rising, soon to be followed by like nationalistic "successes" in other countries, where secession referenda are next on the agenda.
The truth is that a vast majority of Europe's people now want the grand experiment, which merely enriches a small subset of participants while impoverishing everyone else, over and done with: it is this endless pursuit of power and money at all costs that starts wars - not whether Germany and France share a fake currency, that is the cause of the endless bloodshed in Europe. The only reason why wars not only in Europe, but in the world, were avoided for the past several decades, is due to the incursion of gloalbization which merely allowed the encumberance of every global assets with layers upon layers of additional debt, creating money in the process and keeping the oligarchy happy. But it is this oligarchic 'subset' that calls the shots, and the same subset is now realizing the ability to create debt out of thin air in Europe has now ended. And it will gladly take Europe to the edge of war if it means, well, "avoiding war", at least in the Nobel committee's naive version of the world, in the future.
