Greek Prime Minister Joins Diplomatic Scandal Between Russia And Turkey With 4 Tweets

Tyler Durden's picture

Either Greece, having fallen off the face of the geopolitical event map now that it is a vassal state of Frankfurt and Brussels, is in dire need of media attention and as a result the Greek prime minister has decided to intervene directly in the biggest diplomatic scandal to have gripped the international community in years, the one between Russia and Turkey, or the intern manning Tsipras twitter account is about to join the roughly 25% of the Greek population that is unemployed.

Perhaps this is just Tsipras' opening salvo in Greece's own money-for-refugees negotiations with the EU, having seen the dramatic success Turkey just experienced when moments ago it was awarded €3 billion for funding ISIS flooding Europe with Syrian refugees.

That said, any and all comparisons between current geopolitical events rapidly spiraling out of control and in the aftermath of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, are purely arbitrary.

Update: Tsipras (or rather his Twitter PR person) already deleted the tweets but it was too late as they have been clearly saved for posterity.


Update 2: Turkey has responded... where else: on Twitter.

Clearly, Greece needs more austerity so as to shut them up.

Basicly nobody is paying shit so... it really doesn't make a difference on what he will say!

Turkey has picked up a few tricks from the other shitholes in the ME - Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Since they missed the Grexit and returning to drachma, the only good news from Greece now is that pussy got a hell lot cheaper.

Nevertheless, the free version is not off the market yet. So ..

Greece still has the ability to veto extension of sanctions against Russia as a bargaining chip.

Greece needs to get some guts and quite the EU and NATO and partner with Russia.

Bulgaria should also man up and let Gazprom run the south stream through Bulgaria into Greece.

this is doable to sources concerned

Yes, Bulgaria needs to get over its resentfulness over what the Soviet Union did to them. Everyone is blaming Russia for it but the fact is that most of the time the Soviet Union was led by non-Russians.

Yes they will certainly need some more financial punishment, how dare they disregard a direct request to start WW3 from their masters......

Merkel is such a treasonous cunt. Paying ransom money to these islamists fucks in Turkey's government. Disgusting

Truther's picture

All part of the NWO agenda. In the end, the Turks (EU) will be up against Russia.

ChooChoo's picture

The Turks is not EU in many ways and they will geet equal support from NATO as Cyprus did take! exactly EQUAL amount of help ;p

Merkel is under the USA dictatorship. Her files at NSA and CIA start when the bitch was born, and cover every aspect of her communist youth. She is a puppet who knows the German press can end her career in an instant, with just one leaked NSA tid bit about her.

People wonder why NSA spies on every person on earth, and builds entire campus dedicated to storage. When the western leaders act, it is with perfect knowledge that the USA has everything on them.

When a scandal breaks in Europe, it is often just the NSA letting out the information needed to end any politician not onboard with US policy.

It won't matter in the end, the NSA can listen in to the panic filled rooms of the upper echelon as they are torn limb from limb by the serfs they have given no other choice, for when they have lost everything they lose it. To abuse a old adage "statist chase free men until free me catches statist"

ClausClayperon's picture

Don't you think there's more to it Jack? I just find it hard to believe that she would commit such crimes, such treasonous acts against her populace simply because of what the NSA could have on her. I'm sure you're right in that it has been used to manipulate her in the past, but here a line is being crossed that I think any moral person would prefer death to going along with it. Could she perhaps be an advocate of that sinister Kalergi plan?

There is such thing as resigning.

There's a reason the largest population of Turks outside of turkey is in Germany

Germany and turkey despicable allies through time

Tsipras has a valid point since Turkey has done to Greece what Turkey says is unacceptable.

Also, blackmailing the EU pays very well. Why should Turkey be the only one paid off?

BarnacleBill's picture

Yeah, it's a bit cheeky. But I guess the temptation was just irresistable! God knows Turkey has been jerking the Greeks around for years, invading the latter's air space.

It would seem that they will let just about anyone twitter.


I would not be a member of a club that would have me as a member.

Turkey is a jumped-up shithole, jerking everyone around whilst Erdogan ISIS 'R US has dreams of his caliphate.

Archive_file's picture

This isn't about Greece trying to get money from the E.U. It's about the fact that Greece lost their war with Turkey and half of their land. It's about mocking their colonizer.

Tsipras is just jealous, cause the Turks are showing them up on 'How To Blackmail'..

Blackmailing For Dummies:

Step 1. Find or create Blackmail material/situation with teeth & claws.

Step 2. Blackmail Adversary.

Step 3. If they resist, carry through on Blackmail, by using the "Decapitate the Rooster, to discipline the Monkey" Strategem. You may have you escalate, until they fold.

Step 4. Restart the Game, using new parameters and objectives. <p>

Note: if you want to learn how to use Guilt as a tool of Leverage or Tactical Advantage, consult a Rabbi, not a Priest.

Tsipras should make love with Russia and dump the EU. Let the EU have the terrorist state of Turkey and see how that works out.

Jack Burton's picture

Turkey recorded over 1,000 violations of Greek airspace in the last year or so. It is cosnidered standard to fly into Greek space daily.

I agree with your thought.

Unfortunate moniker.

About that "any and all comparisons between current geopolitical events rapidly spiraling out of control and in the aftermath of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, are purely arbitrary" comment.....

Most people forget that it took literally a MONTH before shit got real from the Archduke Ferdinand moment, and many thought that any war would be regional in scale, and over rather quickly.

The pieces ARE moving on the chess board for any who have eyes to see them.

I was in KOS recently and saw all the refugees. It's a tourist feature. There were a large numbers of Russians there who seemed OK. Although I did meet a Latvian national in the hotel (he was a property speculator) who hated Russians. He refused to blame the banks for the mess in which Latvia finds itself.

Turkey will be the NATO ground troops into Syria that's why Putin must allow his commanders to use tactical nukes.

You are going to be steamrollered unless you waste them

Wouldn't it be delightful to watch Turkey have to clean the burning bag of shit off their own doorstep fir a change?!

Tactical nukes tho...what about the environment?!

Someone on ZH has been floating an article from National Geographic about how a regional nuclear war would be a remedy against global warming.

We were just talking about Murdock owning Geographic properties now.

the funny thing is that the article was published before Murdoch's ownership NatGeo.

Is VP making the same mistakes as AH? All the the pro-Putin narrative coming from the frustrated American right might be encouraging but on the debit side, there are simply not enough American supporters to pull this off. Remember, Vlad is up against demonic forces and should perhaps back down. When the Brits get involved, Satan's army will be complete.

Why is there a need to fuck dead pigs or molest little boys?
