Here Come The Statements Following Greece-Merkozy Three Way: Europe Agrees To Not Blow Itself Up

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Reuters is reporting that according to a press report released to reporters in Athens, a Greek government spokesman has said that despite rumors, all have agreed that Greece will remain part of the Eurozone. And from Bloomberg: "Greece is an integral part of the euro area and recent decisions to meet budget targets will help shield the economy, the Greek government said in a statement today following a call between Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy." Well, at least Greece has agreed to not blow itself up. Now... if only enacting this theory into practice was as easy as releasing a statement.

And some more from Bloomberg:

  • SARKOZY, MERKEL `CONVINCED' GREECE TO REMAIN IN EURO, because, you see, Greece is desperate to bail.
  • GREECE MUST STRICTLY ENFORCE BUDGET PROGRAM, SARKOZY SAYS
  • PAPANDREOU CALL WITH MERKEL, SARKOZY IN GOOD CLIMATE: SPOKESMAN: 72 degrees, zero humidity, balmy, not a cloud in the sky
  • PAPAPANDREOU DETERMINED TO ENFORCE DEBT-CUT PLAN, SARKOZY SAYS
  • GREEK GOVERNMENT SATISFIED WITH CALL WITH MERKEL, SARKOZY
  • GREEK BUDGET CUTS TO PAVE WAY FOR EURO STABILITY, SARKOZY... And this time the budget cuts will work. Seriously.

And, no, nothing about how Greek debt will be treated. But remember: that debt exchange is going swimmingly... at least according to Greece.

***CNBC/BLOOMBERG/FINANCIAL TIMES BREAKING NEWS ALERT***

 

Greece's Prime Minister tells world that Merkel begged him to ensure Greece remains part of European Union, and that she even went so far as to tell him that without Greece as an EU Member, "life wasn't worth living."

In other news, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has pledged to wipeout the debts of his own nation, PIIGS+France+U.K, Japan and the United States, by tomorrow at the latest, because "it's the right thing to do at the right time."

Wen Jiabao also was struck with the notion of buying a couple hundred million shares of BAC while having his balls waxed by a concubine.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

I mean seriously, the safe-have Swiss just fucked and confirmed all fiat is not worthy, the only thing that can save Greece, let alone Italy, Spain, and Portugual, is massive money printing, plus let us don't forget we'll spend another 1 trillion at least every year for as far as the eye can see in the U.S. to cover up the depression, and much more like the NAB multi-lateral facility of the IMF getting ready to bail out some giant TBTF banks, and even more money needed to bail out the everything else, retail sells down, and etc. etc. etc. etc........

Missiondweller, dream on! My countrymen- and women have no clue what is really going on and are so overfed with loads of money and us-style tittytainment that it would need a real shock in their wallet, i mean a REAL big blow, to bring them up from their bloody lethargy and utter political ignorance. And even then they would ask for an application for a revolution permit from the authorities before they would do anything "illegal". And the ones who understand what is going on and are willing to do something are a ridiculed minority unable to gain any serious interest.

Btw., why should they protest here? There is no, i repeat NO, noticeable ramification in any way in the usual day-to-day life of average citizens here regarding this absurde european crisis except the news reports every day, which people tend to widely ignore meanwhile due to complete weariness and thus utter aversion on the subject. News and reality are lightyears apart.

we are at a world war I powder keg moment. another andrei breivik will come along soon from france or finland, or greece, and they won't be killing lefties. 

they'll be murdering a high EU or eurozone or ECB official most likely. and this will be all over the news in europe and it will destroy any notion that the public wants cooperation to bail everyone out. 

 

this kind of rogue shit is predictable. someones gonna do something ....at some point soon.

if anybody believes Greece won't default, then they should be able to more than double their money in a year right?

This is all just a joke now. I have no interest in sitting at the poker table where the others are whispering and showing each other their hands to bet.

Like the scene in Force 10 from Navarone where the charges go off and Harrison Ford is wondering why the dam is still there. 

Same deal here...just wait a while.

"Greece is an integral part of the euro area and recent decisions to meet budget targets will help shield the economy, the Greek government said in a statement today following a call between Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy."

This is exactly why eurozone is destined to fail. They keep lying that Greece is an integral part when in reality euro means death to Greece and Greece means death to eurozone. And this goes for many more countries too. And second, this is a prime example how "democracy" is implemented in eurozone. Merkozy having their nice little tea parties and from time to time they have the courtesy to invite some minion country to have a cup.

Well, the can has been successfully kicked down the road for another quarter. Untill the 17 euro nations parlaments vote on the legality and funding for the EFSF there is nothing else to be done.

Timmy has guanteed european solvency, Benny has opened up the eurodollar swaps and China will invest in Euroland. In the mean time the Greek people continue to be sacrificed at the alter the banksters have built. What a world we live in.

considering China markets are in bear market, they will say whatever to stop the bloodshed...

but i honestly can't see them wanting to buy toxic assets

this is all a front so the markets will rally

but sooner or later the fat lady will sing

So what is positive about this is that Germany France and Greece agree that Greece will remain in the Eurozone.  Because of the promised cuts and taxes that they agreed to do.  This is a nothing statement.  They might as well say that Greece will really really really do what we want of them and if not we will say it again.  You don't hear anymore talk out of Germany from this weekend about Greece defaulting do you.  They have told those individuals to shut up say and think happy thoughts.

When this economy implodes, it will be in a loud bang.
