now that we have all celebrated the beautiful Greek “NO!” to the EU
plutocracy, we need to get real again and look at the Empire’s options.
Or, in fact, at the Empire’s option (with no ‘s’ at the end).
Empire is extremely predictable. The example of Greece is a textbook
case of how the Empire uses banks to strangle a country with debt,
creates a comprador ruling class,
turns the national media into an instrument of imperial propaganda and
tries to completely halt any democratic process by dealing only with the
ruling class. By some quasi miracle this last phase has failed in the
case of Greece.
might be mistaken, but my feeling is that the Empire never took Syriza
very seriously or, if it did, it did so way too late. As for Tsipras
and Varoufakis, they probably were as suprized as the rest of us when
they suddenly were “upgraded” for the leadership of a 5% party to the
leaders of the entire Greek nation. I also get the feeling that neither
Tsirpas nor Varoufakis fully expected the tsunami which they unleashed
with this referendum. But whatever may be the case, was is done is done
and, to the absolute horror of the Eurobureaucrats, the Greek people
have spoken and right now the Empire has only one option: to either
co-opt or overthrow the Greek government, which ever works best.
strictly personal feeling is that it is too late co-opt the
government. Besides, both Tsipras and Varoufakis have become such hated
figures amongst the Eurobureaucrats that overthrow is probably the
this process is already under way. Varoufakis who has late has
yesterday was saying “you are stuck with me” to a reporter, has now
already resigned. As for Tsipras, he appears to be begging for
negotiations. I hope that I am wrong, but I am underwhelmed by what I
have seen so far.
Yet another color revolution next?
example of Gaddafi clearly shows that a national leader can totally
roll over and submit to the AngloZionists and *still* be overthrown. My
guess is that no amount of concessions from Tripras will be enough to
keep him in power. He has humiliated the Eurobureaucrats and they will
not forgive him. The only logical solution for the Empire now is to
make an example of Greece.
matter what, Greece will face extremely difficult times, both
politically and economically. We have recently seen how a country – in
this case Armenia – can be easily “punished” for daring to disobey the
imperial diktats. I think that Greece right now is a much weaker and
fragile country than Greece. For one thing, the Germans and Americans
more or less run, and even own, the place. Second, a good solid third
of the country was willing to accept the terms of the ultimatum of the
transnational plutocracy. Third, Greece is surrounded by NATO and
instability on all sides. Fourth, the country’s entire media is owned
by the AngloZionists. Fifth, Greece lacks natural resources or a good
market outside the EU.
Unlike others, I do not fear the Greek military too much. Yes, it is generally on the side of thecomprador elites
but the last thing the EU wants is yet another Fascist military junta
in power in an EU country. Also, the reaction of the Greek people to an
overt coup might be very unpredictable.
think that the most likely scenario is that the next thing that will
happen is a Greek Maidan, followed by accusations of police brutality
and all the rest of the typical color revolution scenario. At the end
of the day, what will happen will largely depend on the stance which
Tsipras and his party will take: if they seek to appease the
Eurobureaucrats, if they offer infinite concessions and if they act like
loyal “EU patriots” they will be crushed. But if they appeal directly
to the Greek people and explain to them that this is a struggle for
national-liberation and that they need the people’s support, help and
protection, then they might well prevail, especially if they chose to
break free from the Eurozone and turn to the Eurasian Economic Union and
China for support. I hope that I am wrong, but I don’t see Tsipras
daring to do something that dramatic. This is why I predict a color
