Greek Colonization 102: Europe Calls For Reconstruction Commissioner In Athens

Tyler Durden's picture





 

First they force now officially defaulted Greece to bailout European banks courtesy of a Greek funded Escrow package, then they make Greek pays for the privilege of having a job, then they send in German tax collectors, and finally they prepare to pilfer the gold. And simply because nobody is home, the colonization continues, with the formal take over of the country by a "Kommisar"

  • JUNCKER CALLS FOR RECONSTRUCTION COMMISSIONER FOR ATHENS: WELT
  • JUNCKER COMMENTS IN INTERVIEW WITH GERMANY'S DIE WELT

And since not even this colonial escalation will do much if anything to stir the locals, we can't even imagine what the next annexation steps will be.

Here's the thing: The Greek people didn't vote for a debt increase EVER, so technically they are not responsible for running up the national debt. The Greek people only voted for increased benefits, not increased debt. It is the BANKERS and IMF that are responsible for the debt, not Greek voters.

This "reconstruction" idea will not last for long. There is only one solution to the debt crisis outside of a revolution:

The Cure to Greek’s Debt Crisis: War with Turkey

And the first battleground is ready with Cyprus becoming more militarized with each move.

Step 1) Burn down Athens

 

Step 2) Take out a loan from the ECB and member banks to fund the rebuilding of Athens

 

Step 3) Receive ECB bailout because you can't pay interest on the money you borrowed

 

Step 4) Public hears about this and riots, burning down Athens.

Lets not forget that European law is soverign and the European Arrest warrent is already here (so there is a Europe wide choice of courts to get miscrents on something).

Yup - what ever the Troika et al decide I am sure its all perfectly legal (lets face it thats the banking way, and most of the Eurocrats were or are in hoc to bankers).

As long as there are no referendums or elections the EU has a free hand. To cover off against that local politicians are being handcuffed with promises prior to elections that nothing changes. Its take over by buerocrat. I am sure everyone involved means well, but once its all done it who comes next you have to watch out for. The SHTF has not actually happened yet so lets hope sanity prevails before history re-emerges with some iconic individual proposing a fresh "tough new approach" to sort out the sins of the past (and other races).

Perfectly legal, of course. German Supreme Court made clear, that the parliament has to get involved into this mess and found it not legal to hand out more guarantees, without a referendum. And what is the parliament doing? They circumvent this decision by letting the EZB print like there is no tomorrow and allow national CB's to pledge a Snickers as a collateral to Deutsche Bundesbank. So Germany sits on receivables of almost 1 trn. backed by horse shit. Congrats to Merkel and Schäuble. They played the good cop / bad cop game with France quite well. And in the end the people get ass-raped by a non constitutional entity.

Representative Democracy my ass.
