I will be a bit happier when CB and MCB bankers have to pay big bucks to employ food tasters.

Letter from Goldman?

Pandelis's picture

Most probably Goldman since the bomb letter passed all the XRay machines ... same tactics with few presidents in US to start with and you name it anywhere else.

 

It should be noted that this is an important stage of completing greek debt saga .... who knows what is going on, most likely he resisted them that would be my guess

 

He was as Prime Minister only few months, then Soros came in a few times to install Tsipras.

Don't underestimate Goldman's role in wrecking Greece.

Pandelis's picture

why do you think I underestimate Goldman"s role?

Cohn has been a key player along wuth Soros at al on bringing Greece to where it is... tsipras, germans (Schwable) at al are just pawns

 

basically, they brought economic poverty, then pakistanis at al under the "immigrants" theory, and have young greeks leave the country on mass for jobs overseas.

 

this is war or to be more precise mass killing of innocents ... the same as Smirna in 1922 or Armenians on 19th century.... same people, same enemy, same goal - different implementation methods.

The Greeks should start fighting external forces with pin point presicion. Motorcycle assasins are the best choice as have been proven in the past. The golden dawn should take note.

The problems are many.

  • The enemy is well hidden.
  • Pensioners and goverment workers paid by Euro are afraid to return to the drachma
  • Soros and co. and other actors can use Turkey as the enforcer.
  • Many more

Best scenario for Greece, is for Italy and Spain to bail out first.

Vamos

Q: What does one call 100,000 dead bankers at the bottom of the ocean?

A: An unacceptably slow start.

I have every reason to believe it was a letter bomb.

OK, I get it... Austerity is good.

DRTexas's picture

If it weren't for austerity, it would have been a bigger bomb.

Who would have the motive to do such a thing?  Surely not ISIS.  Who did this guy fuck over?

Perhaps this is what real terrorism looks like (though who knows at this point, as he could have just as easily been taken out by his own team).

If it is "terrorism", it was likely done by a Westerner. Note the differences between this and Manchester, Bataclan, St Petersburg, Beslan....). One is focused, precise, targetted. The others are mindless, bloody, savage and focused on killing and maiming innocents.

Could also be a false flag. I'm sure ZOG would like to get some UN boots on the ground in Greece. This could be the first move in that direction.

"Who did this guy fuck over?"

 

Why, that would be the whole world...

Wrong question.  Should be "Who didn't this guy fuck over" and you can remove a few suspects.

Offthebeach's picture

Tough to say who did this. We would need a FBI like chart of the various crime (bankster) families, their leaders, capos, lieutenants and soldiers. Could be some Greek wanting to move up.  If it was another family, say Deutchbank then they would normally have to get a ok from The Commission  ( Fed/London ).  

I suppose a lot of banksters will be hitting the mattresses at luxury estates.

Or maybe the guy was talking with Assange already and someone found out, ala Seth Rich?
