From the Athenian 300 to this.
Sounds about right.
Athenians are callow boy lovers. It was the Spartans that held back the Persian hoards.
Sadly, all that remain are the Athenians.
I stand corrected.
But what about that bizarre Persian King in the movie, hermaphroditic genitalia and all?
Wasn't Leonidas pure of heart and the movie essentially a historically accurate documentary about the danger of Persians, the immortals, sunburst missiles, and the need to start another MENA conflict with known unknowns and unknown knowns?
I'm going to need some answers pretty soon because I signed up to take the Jesse Livermore (conducted by Barton Biggs & Victor Niederhoffer) Rock Star HFTrader Boot Camp.
Our debt is so large it will blot out the sun!
Then we will default in the shade!
Black cars look better in the shade.
Even back then, there were more Greeks fighting on the Persian side against their own free cities.
Sounds like a pincer move against the Great Turk...not that i would expect such strategems.
We could use a few Spartans about now. I wonder how a proposal for an asset/commodity-backed trade or currency from Iran to Greece (or any other sovereign) would be recieved by NATO? As hostile no doubt.
Iran (speaking to the world); "We have oil and will trade with anyone for technology or any physical assests, let's see what the E.Z. has to trade."
Later that day on all MSM sites - "Nuclear accident being reported out of Iran..."
I guess we'll have to wait until the movie comes out about how the Athenians defeated a Persian force at least 10 times greater than theirs. This battle is still commemorated in cities the world over, many times a year.
So Greece will borrow from ECB to buy oil from Iran. Love it.
can we get this over with, PLEASE!
Tyler looks to be late on this. The FED is making dollars available to the ESFS and the ECB to buy Italian Bonds.
Being reported on Bloomberg right now. The FED is making dollars available to buy Italian Bonds. Making Dollars.
Get it, freshly printed to back up verbal commitment from Big Ben.
Prescisely why gold is on the move again.
What you talkin' 'bout Willis?
Money is fungible.
Just wait until we bomb Iran... will Greece jump in to defend?
Who is this 'we' you speak of?
"Who is this 'we' you speak of?"
The US and Disneyland
Greece to become an Iranian satellite.
Would that not be fantastic - Iran could have some Air Bases, a garrrison or ten of crack ground forces and a Naval Base down on the Kalamata peninsular. They could Blockade Isreal and demand they scrap their Nukes!
Ok, perhaps they would not get away with it.
ECB takes the Acropolis
and Hezbollah takes the streets?
This is interesting.
THanks Tyler for posting stuff that the MSM doesn't talk about too much.
Love the unintended consequences here. The EU is just showing how it's not possible to control everyone with money. No doubt Greece has something that Iran wants, that oil isn't supplied simply on credit.
There is no money left to control anybody.
Expecting Mr Rehn, the ponzimaster of bankrupt Europe, welcoming Iran to join eurozone, the cradle of stabeeletee and prospeeretee not to mention democracy.
Would be in line with surreal theme of the past couple of months.
This is SPARTA! Still all about oily Greeks and Persians even centuries later.
Actually the Greeks were thuggish warriors , more like cannon fodder.
Iran doesn't need nuclear weapons....the financial fallout will be enough.
Yea throws a bit of a monkeywrench into the 'attack Iran' endgame.
So much for war with Iran.
Now theyll have to speed up false flag diversion attacks...upscale them too.
If Greece is trading direct with Iran, it could speed up the war, since someone wouldn't be getting their vig from the trade.
Change you can believe in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsRP3CnG0e4
Meanwhile in Syria:
why do you think Western media only care about Syria, but not Bahrain and Yemen? Do you think western nations will sanction Bahrain?
ECB can’t be lender of last resort: Stark
as the the ECB's S-92 is on the pad and ready to go
....Andddddd.... Iran buys Greece for $3B.....
If the Greek economy continues on its current trajectory for any legnth of time, they will not be needing oil from anybody. Problem solved.
Oh! curveball - a Greek/Persian alliance!
I guess their oil is gonna stop after Israel attacks. Oops.
Trilateral commission controls Greece. It's all planned that Greece does business with Iran.
As an interesting sidenote, Greece owns more of the world's oil tankers by far than any other nation. (733)
Maybe they will ask them to all come home - loaded.
Hmm. That true? Well, I hear those rotten Greeks are nuclearizing. Time to do something about that. Impound assets maybe?
"Oil's Well That Ends Well"
Xerxes still exacts revenge for Thermopylae.
G-Pap signed a (not so) secret military alliance pact with israel in September, as a result of which the sionists have full access to air bases and ports for working around the problem of the Turks denying them right of passage for the hit on Iran.
The Greeks got a mess of armaments in return, but were supposed to also have got the $ necessary to stave off bankruptcy as well....except that G-Daff got the gold out of country before they finally took him down, so the promised payments via stolen Libyan gold never transpired...although the shuffling of the general staff went through as planned.
The israelis snuck the necessary planes through to Azerbijan via exercises in Turk airspace: but to move the required 'bunkerbusters' that Obomber gave them to those aircraft, they need to follow the Greece(probably Rhodos)Romania, Georgia transit that the Sept deal was supposed to ensure.
Talk of 'tranche payments,' meeeting conditions, and so on is just smoke and mirrors...Berlusconi and G-Pap are both collateral damage victims of the non-appearance of the Libyan loot...Nato, er ZATO, sorry, I meant to say, Tel Aviv, is forced to ramp up the first strike scenario because they know that the Greeks are going to call them on the missing cash soon, revoke the deal, and go with the Persians instead.
Look for a strike before Thanksgiving...it's all or nothing now.
