    We all know Ferkel Merkel and the private ECB are screaming at the top of their lungs, calling to prevent the general election that might make a political party (that advocates a debt moratorium their main economic solution) the main political party in power.

    But you haven't given me a good reason why a debt moratorium shouldn't be explored. I don't care which party who employs it, but it has to be done. A debt moratorium is the strongest weapon against the ECB, and Merkel due to the fact that the whole reason why the 'German Economic Miracle' even happened was because post-WW2 West Germany was able to get half of it's debt written off in the 'London Agreement on German External Debts' in the year of 1953. Germany/ECB/Merkel will have very little legal argument as Germany can not tell other countries not to have a debt moratorium if they benefited from one themselves.

    Well that statement is kind of funny, reality looks different.

    Merkel says, Greeks will disaggree, EU will blackmail Greece with sanctions, jailtime for corruption against those who said no or just find accusations such as "He raped a girl" like in case of Strauss Kahn, Assange and many others. We live in a dirty oppressive regime don't think they will use any possible means to get what they want, banksters are all sociopaths, no feeling for others.

    The only option Greece has that _might_ work is to leave Eurozone, magnumcromagnon.
    Even if you write off debt or decrease borrow costs to zero or if you get back the money owns since WW2 the reality is that Greek economy is terribly uncompetitive with a hard currency.
    Greek economy is a joke and Greeks have no intentions to change the situation, even to the slightest!
    As of SYRIZA will prove to be a total joke. They will change -nothing- better or worse compare to the current situation. They are just one of them, they already share money, friendships, girlfriends, jobs and whatever else with the current ruling parties who they supposedly despise and the crimes SYRIZA members  commit get covered by the ruling party!...


    Edit: This doesn't mean that I don't want the ruling parties to get the hell out of power or cease to exit, this means I realize that we are seriously fucked up by the political system and the incompetence of the people.

    Just for clarification, today the parliament discussed the video where a former Deutche Bank employe tried to bribe a right wing MP to vote for the Greek President in favor of the ruling party.
    Shockingly enough they decided to IGNORE the video!!!, dismissing further investigation and suppressing the right of the Greek people to watch the document! In a way fully covering the Prime minister and the Greek pro American junta. Of course the ruling parties PASOK and ND voted in favor of the suppression but the interesting thing is that 3 more parties voted for the corrupt establishment:

    -A party named Democratic Left (how a leftist can be democrat I wonder..), a Brussels financed Trojan horse

    -The SYRIZA party, the one that will change Europe according to some naive, the same shit that support and guide state terrorism!!! always in favor of the bankers interests of course...

    -And non other than the Greek Communist Party the remnants of the Soviet satellite party that is still equally treasonous and equally violent like always was

    Against voted ONLY the Golden Dawn party that is imprisoned by the junta with the support of the leftist scum and the Independence Greeks party where the aforementioned MP belong.

    All of this shitty dictators where foreigners and they were marring foreigners up until today that they are dethroned and the reason is that they don't give a penny about their step fatherland. They still prefer Catholic and Protestant heretics all the while they pretend they are Orthodox.
    Greece expanded despite them and not because of them. If something positive happened the last 200 years is that at least we get ride of this bloody tyrannies that still rule the western European barbarians.
    Inherited monarchy? Are you for real? Even the animals are clever enough to adopt as leader the best one and not any bastard that came out of someone's balls!

    are u sure that u know Greek history politics well? did u know that military right wing junta of 1967-1974 was that dethroned last king of Greece? Did u know that right wing new democracy party founder-leader Constantinos Karamnlis organized the referendum in 1974 that dethroned King officially in 1974?

    The king of Greece was the HEAD OF MILITARY and USA and Britain have reasons to controll our military for their own interests through the political parties thats why they deposed him.

    And because u ask me if i am bothered from inherited monarchy. Did u know that even during monarhcy after 1945 Greece was governed by two families and their successors family members? (Papandreou - Karamanlis)
    Isnt it inherited administration? Even the dog of karamnlis and papandreou greek people would vote for..
    i live in greece and i know very well

    Putin Orders to Protect Greek Leaders



    http://www.thetotalcollapse.com/putin-orders-special-forces-to-protect-greek-leaders-life-at-all-costs/
    http://www.sahos24.com/english/2015/02/02/3113
    An exclusive report has published in the Kremlin on Monday prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that President Putin has ordered an immediate deployment of at least 125 special forces operatives to Greece to “insure the protection of life at all costs” of that nations new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

    According to this report, Prime Minister Tsipras took office this past week after his Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) party won a “blowout” election victory sending shockwaves through the corridors of power in both the European Union and the United States.

    Upon taking office, this report continues, Prime Minister Tsipras further “shocked and stunned” both the EU and US by holding his first official government meeting with Ambassador of Russia to Greece Andrey Maslov.

    In addition to those special forces authorized by Ambassador Maslov to protect Prime Minister Tsipras, this report states, President Putin’s new order authorizes a further deployment to Greece of Foreign Intelligence Service operatives and a contingent of specialists from the Psychological Security Department (PSD) of the Presidential Security Service (SBP).

    MASTER FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FACILITY AGREEMENT

    Post  arpakola on Thu Feb 19, 2015 2:07 pm





    http://garizo.blogspot.gr/2015/02/master-financial-assistance-facility.html
    MASTER FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FACILITY AGREEMENT
    between EUROPEAN FINANCIAL STABILITY FACILITY THE HELLENIC REPUBLIC
    as Beneficiary Member State  THE HELLENIC FINANCIAL STABILITY FUND
    as Guarantor  and  THE BANK OF GREECE
    (as amended by the Amendment Agreement dated 12 December 2012)


    "Athens, February 18, 2015
    Dear President of the Eurogroup,
    Over the last five years, the people of Greece have exerted remarkable efforts in economic adjustment. The new government is committed to a broader and deeper reform process aimed at durably improving growth and employment prospects, achieving debt sustainability and financial stability, enhancing social fairness and mitigating the significant social cost of the ongoing crisis.

    The Greek authorities recognise that the procedures agreed by the previous governments were interrupted by the recent presidential and general elections and that, as a result, several of the technical arrangements have been invalidated. The Greek authorities honour Greece's financial obligations to all its creditors as well as state our intention to cooperate with our partners in order to avert technical impediments in the context of the Master Facility Agreement which we recognise as binding vis-a-vis its financial and procedural content.

    In this context, the Greek authorities are now applying for the extension of the Master Financial Assistance Facility Agreement for a period of six months from its termination during which period we shall proceed jointly, and making best use of given flexibility in the current arrangement, toward its successful conclusion and review on the basis of the proposals of, on the one hand, the Greek government and, on the other, the institutions.

    The purpose of the requested six-month extension of the Agreement's duration is:
    (a) To agree the mutually acceptable financial and administrative terms the implementation of which, in collaboration with the institutions, will stabilise Greece's fiscal position, attain appropriate primary fiscal surpluses, guarantee debt stability and assist in the attainment of fiscal targets for 2015 that take into account the present economic situation.
    (b) To ensure, working closely with our European and international partners, that any new measures be fully funded while refraining from unilateral action that would undermine the fiscal targets, economic recovery and financial stability.
    (c) To allow the European Central Bank to re-introduce the waiver in accordance with its procedures and regulations.
    (d) To extend the availability of the EFSF bonds held by the HFSF for the duration of the Agreement.
    (e) To commence work between the technical teams on a possible new Contract for Recovery and Growth that the Greek authorities envisage between Greece, Europe and the International Monetary Fund which could follow the current Agreement.
    (f) To agree on supervision under the EU and ECB framework and, in the same spirit, with the International Monetary Fund for the duration of the extended Agreement.
    (G) To discuss means of enacting the November 2012 Eurogroup decision regarding possible further debt measures and assistance for implementation after the completion of the extended Agreement and as part of the follow-up Contract.
    With the above in mind, the Greek government expresses its determination to cooperate closely with the European Union's institutions and with the International Monetary Fund in order: (a) to attain fiscal and financial stability and (b) to enable the Greek government to introduce the substantive, far-reaching reforms that are needed to restore the living standards of millions of Greek citizens through sustainable economic growth, gainful employment and social cohesion.
    Sincerely,
    Yanis Varoufakis
    Minister of Finance
    Hellenic Republic"

    Giscard says Greeks should consider euro exit

    Giscard says Greeks should consider euro exit
    http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/12/07/us-eurozone-giscard-idUSTRE7B613P20111207

    (Reuters) - Former French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, once a champion of Greece's EU membership, now believes Athens should consider leaving the euro single currency to avoid inflicting the pain of deflation on its people

    Giscard is a longtime friend of Greece. He pressed Greece's EU candidacy over German objections, clearing the way for Athens to join what was then called the European Economic Community in 1981. Two decades later Greece joined the euro.

    In an interview at his Paris home, Giscard said Greece faced a difficult choice. On Tuesday, the Greek government approved another round of austerity measures as protesters clashed with police outside parliament. Its economy will shrink again next year, a fifth straight year of recession.


    "Greece could stay in the euro zone but it is very difficult to achieve economic recovery with a strong currency," the 85-year-old former president said. "Is it better to use a national currency for a period, or have the safety of a strong currency? It is Greece's choice."

    SYRIZA party against EU sanctions against Russia ?

    Post  arpakola on Wed Jun 10, 2015 12:28 pm

    RESOLUTION of SYRIZA - KAISARIANI, District on the WAR IN UKRAINE AND THE planed SANCTIONS of EU AGAINST THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION


    http://garizo.blogspot.gr/2015/06/blog-post_10.html
    Today, on 9 June 2015 SYRIZA Kaisarianis voted and adopted the following resolution:
    -------------------------------------------------- --------------------------
    "At the beginning of 2014 the legitimate president of Ukraine was toppled by a violent coup organised by far right and Nazi elements.
    The inhabitants of the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine did not recognize the new regime and rdecided by referendums to become independent. In particular the cities of Lugansk and Donetsk they have experienced for the last year the barbarism of the bombing by the Kiev regime with heavy artillery in their cities with carnage of dead and infrastructure disasters.
    For that reason:
    1. We condemn the aggressive actions of the authoritarian regime of Kiev in the cities of East Ukraine
    2. We support the maintenance of MINSK II Agreement that includes the
    demilitarization of the conflict zone and free from heavy weapons.
    3. We call on the Greek government and the Foreign Ministry not to vote for and to vote against the planned EU sanctions proposal against Russia in late June, sanctions that will hurt also the struggling people of East Ukraine and will support the authoritarian regime of Kiev

    This resolution will be made public and proposed also to the Central Committee of the party, whih is also invited to announce a resolution on this issue. "

    The United States and Germany are prepared to engineer a coup in Greece to keep the country operating as a strategic asset on NATO’s vulnerable southeast European flank.

    “A putsch in Athens to save allied Greece from enemy Russia is in preparation by the US and Germany, with backing from the non-taxpayers of Greece – the Greek oligarchs, Anglo-Greek shipowners, and the Greek Church,” writes John Helmer, the longest continuously serving foreign correspondent in Russia not connected to the corporate media.

    The primary tip-off something is brewing can be detected by the presence of Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, in Athens in March.

    Nuland, The Guardian reported on March 17, “flew into the capital amid mounting US concerns that the great euro debt crisis has begun to pose a geopolitical threat. Allowed to veer out of control, Greece could end up in the ambit of Russia, financially bereft and without the EU links that keep it bounded to the west. Nato’s south-eastern flank would be immeasurably weakened at a time of mounting global security worries over Islamic fundamentalists in the Middle East.”

    Nuland and the United States may be working closely with Greek military to foment a coup following the historic “No” vote in a referendum of the demands of the banksters.

    She is notorious for her role in the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine and it now appears she has been assigned for a repeat in Greece. Helmer writes that when Nuland

    visited Athens to issue an ultimatum against breaking the anti-Russian sanctions regime, and the Anglo-American think-tanks followed with warnings the Russian Navy is about to sail into Piraeus, the object of the game [became] clear. The line for Operation Nemesis has been that Greece must be saved, not from itself or from its creditors, but from the enemy in Moscow.

    Russia to Rescue Greece from Bankers

    Russia is reportedly prepared to help Greece as it battles the banksters on Wall Street and Brussels. It is believed a Greek exit from the eurozone will move the country closer to Russia and deepen divisions within NATO.

    Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of the socialist Syriza party said in mid-June an alignment with Russia is possible and hinted Greece was “ready to go to new seas to reach new safe ports.”

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov and Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Russia would consider providing loans to Greece if requested.
    Greek Military Sends Strong Message

    On Friday a number of Greek military officers publicly called for a “yes” vote.

    “Retired General Fragkoulis Fragkos, a former defense minister and one-time head of the Greek army general staff, called for a ‘loud yes on Sunday.’ In 2011, Fragkos was cashiered by then-Prime Minister George Papandreou amid rumors of a coup,” writes Alex Lantier.

    Clearly referring to Tsipras, Fragkos said that “the moral values and principles that have always defined us Greeks are not under negotiation with any clueless and historically ignorant politician who is advancing his own party interest.”

    A group of 65 retired high-ranking officers issued a statement citing their “oath to the Fatherland and the Flag” and warning, “By choosing isolation, we place the Fatherland and its future in danger.”

    Tsipras and Syriza prepared for a possible coup in January by shuffling military staff.

    “The leadership (of the military and intelligence services) was changed,” sources told Heller, “but not radically. The defense minister (Panos Kammenos) is rightist so there are no ‘radicals’ in command.”
    Greek Military is an Operation Gladio Asset

    US intervention in Greece is nothing new. Between 1987 and 1989 the US made a concerted effort to overthrow the elected Greek government of Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou.

    Prior to this in 1967 the Greek military installed the Regime of the Colonels following a coup d’état .

    The Greek military was under the control of the CIA following Greece’s entrance into NATO in 1952. Elements of the Greek military were part of the CIA’s “stay behind” network under Operation Gladio and these elements (specifically LOK, or Lochoi Oreinōn Katadromōn, i.e. “Mountain Raiding Companies”) were directly involved in the 1967 coup.
