Cyprus IS an island, after all...

Clearly, in the fotos, the crowds are tightly forming... & it is a well known phenomenon that when this occurs, on islands, they tip over & sink into the sea...

The reason bank holiday has been posponed until next week is obvious:  CYPRUS IS DUMPING THE EURO AND GOING BACK TO THE LIRA!

Merkel's theft of depositors money has backfired and all of europe is waking up to the fact that the EU was yet another attempt by the teutonic nazi oligarchs to enslave the continent (and the world).

Like I posted months (or was it years) ago:  It is only a matter of time until Merkel's charred remains are found by the entrance to her bunker.

"Merkel's theft of depositors money has backfired"

That's right, Angela was heaing to Cyprus with a big boobpack, hoping to sneak into the banks and pad her brassiere while nobody was looking ....

Or, gee, maybe this is the way it happened:  Merkel decided that German workers shouldn't have to have their earnigs taken at gunpoint (i.e., taxed) and used to bail out Cypriot bankers and Russian billionaiires, and that Cyprus should share in the pain of the collapse of their own economy rather than riding the German workers' backs - whereupon it was actually a Danish minister and the Cyprus President who decided to go after bank account savings. Nowhere, notime, nohow did Germany EVER instruct or request Cyprus to raise its share of the bailout by "taxing" bank accounts, and indeed Germany greeted the decision to tax accounts under the insured level of 100,000 Euros with derision (over 100,000, that's not insured, you have counterparty risk just like investing in bonds, and hence caveat emptor).

Indeed Merkel recently tried to nix a Cypriot proposal to loot the pension system to save the banks.

If you want to falsely and gratuitously blame someone, blame Israel ;-)

FOILED AGAIN!

Or, gee, you moronic racist prick, maybe we can put the German-bashing on hold for a second and examine what really happened, to wit:  Merkel and her cabinet decided that German workers shouldn't have to have their earnigs taken at gunpoint (i.e., taxed) and used to bail out Cypriot bankers and Russian billionaiires, and that Cyprus should share in the pain of the collapse of their own economy rather than riding the German workers' backs - whereupon it was actually a Danish minister and the Cyprus President who decided to go after bank account savings. Nowhere, notime, nohow did Germany EVER instruct or request Cyprus to fund its share of the bailout by "taxing" bank accounts, and indeed Germany greeted the decision to tax accounts under the insured level of 100,000 Euros with derision (over 100,000, that's not insured, you have counterparty risk just like investing in bonds, and hence caveat emptor).

Hey caco, you dumb SOB. Those people streaming into the streets had nothing to do with their Bankster's theft of their wealth. What you and people unfamiliar with the UrinalCrats over there is that those unelected pukes are draining the life-blood of their citizens, who BTW, had nothing to do with them being signed up to debt they had nothing to do with.

I hope those cypriots never find out who you are because if they do you might find yourelf with a Cypriot Necktie. Be very respectful of those you have no knowledge of. ????? ?????... I am telling you this because these Cypriots really take derogatory references as personal insults. Just thought you'd like to know before you opened your mouth again. Just a word of good adice...

So, if NOT $130,000 then please DO give us a number where this then becomes unacceptable.

Only a minority of Cypriots are directly involved in the finance "industry" (AKA the banking mafia). 

Nonetheless, you're right that the average Cypriot indirectly benefited from and never bothered to challenge the financialization that took hold of their economy. As long as easy credit was made available to the public and some high-paying do-nothing jobs in finance were made available to the natives, the country accepted the status quo.

Now that the whole system is breaking down, they don't know what to do. Are they going to tear down the banking system that provides them with easy credit? What does life look like without that?

We can't escape the core of the crisis which is that there are quite a few nations that feel entitled to a particular lifestyle but can not afford that level of consumption in real economic terms. They can only keep up with the Joneses through debt. Either they ride the debt-wagon til the wheels fall off or they end the system. Either way, they will inevitably go through a period of profound asset price deflation coupled with lowered consumption levels.

In times of crisis/war, authorities and military are paid in cash or MPC (Military Payment Certificates). The commanders don't want them taking risk among the public and banks.

I am surprised cops are even there against the people

the sole existence for cops, at the end, is to protect elites from the people.  and there is no reason to think that the cops are not getting paid one way or the other.

It's called "Chain of Command" and they are trained to respect it. Responsibility shifts away from the individuals carrying orders to the authority claiming the orders. What's the surprise? Military institutions always worked on that basis.

They probably get paid well, at least the high-ranking and riot police. Otherwise they would not be there. But I do not think they would be on the other side as that would risk their jobs.

If someone has 30-round clips, they have more than one and the gunz they get inserted into.  No Sheriff in their right mind is gonna enforce this.

I've got a bad feeling about this (no jokey SW reference intended). It just seems like this could be what pushes it all over the edge. It "feels" different, you know?

It doesn't help that there's practically no mainstream media coverage of this, either. They're doing everything possible to distract us with Syria, Israel, and Iran, and that doesn't exactly fill me with warm fuzzy feelings.

If I recall correctly, the Berlin wall was there primarily to keep people in, whereas the one in Israel is there to keep people out. I am not sure that this can be fairly described as a difference without a distinction.

Good point McMolotov.  I've spoken to a few people at work about what is going on over there and they literally had no idea.  They did know Justin Bieber fainted or some crap though.  Really, the media blackout on important events and total propaganda on lies has gotten to be tough to swallow.

True but the ME-war-ism is damn serious as well, the REBELS are using chemical weapons, Obama is saying Damascus can't retaliate in kind or he will attack.  Get it?  Obama is tacitly giving the REBELS the green-light to attack Assad, potentially with more chemical weapons, to goad Damascus into a massive response so Obama-Israel can attack Syria, bombard it to dust and invade then take out Hezbollah and over-run and smash Gaza.  Egypt is on to it and moving forces. Iraq is turning a blind eye to Iranian flights to Syria that may contain arms. Every one is pissed at Turkey. Russia is in the mix as they said they would be.  Damascus knows it can not just sit there and hang on as that won't resolve things, it has to change the dynamics, with allies, and it will do something to change that dynamic and the costs of the US and Israel supporting the Rebels, and of Israel flagrantly bombing Syria.

No they are already in the process of paritioning Syria into 2 blocs just like Berlin post WWII. There won't be a full out intervention from either side. Only way that partition falls is if one side manages to overrun and take back the other. Cold war is back on like Donkey Kong with the Russians and Chinese. They won't admit it though because they can't spin it in a good vs evil narrative anymore. We are on the wrong side of the moral fence now.

Pretty soon it is going to be the whole world vs the US and Israel at this rate. That is a battle we will lose.

 

The only way that stops is when the people here in the US have to deal with some real painful suffering then the backlash will come. A bank deposit levy will certainly force a few of them to take their heads out their asses and take a good hard look at what is going on. Derivative or banking meltdown part II will certainly have the same effect. Nobody in the matrix really gives a fuck until it effects the children and their wallets.
