Greek Crisis Turns Deadly Serious; Will the World's Governments Learn from It?


www.moneyandmarkets. com

This week, the financial crisis in Greece turned deadly serious. No longer are investors just losing boatloads of money. People are starting to lose their lives!

The latest bout of chaos struck on Wednesday during a general strike. Everyone from air traffic controllers to teachers left their posts. Tens of thousands of protestors hit the streets, hurling rocks and Molotov cocktails. Three people reportedly died in a fire that struck an Athens bank branch.

So what’s provoking the madness?

It’s the stiff austerity measures the rest of the European Union and the International Moneta

Greece should be scared at what's to come because the treacherous Greek political elite, sold out and controlled by the globalist banksters, have fallen into financial enslavement with the economy thrown in the toilet by design, and they are being given a bailout by the IMF?

Trust me, it's akin to offering a few Band-Aids to the guy you tortured to an inch of his life.

This being a conspiracy board, I will idly speculate that perhaps, just perhaps... it may not be entirely coincidental that the first place the globalists take down in Europe just so happens to be the cradle of democracy, and indeed of European/Western civilization itself.

Just speculation of course...but history does show the global elite often have a sick sense of humor when it comes to symbolic moves, dates, places, geography, and so on.

Greece brought this upon themselves. Low taxes, excessive spending, corruption - the list goes on.

I am not against the citizenry of Greece on this, but the government has been lying about its finances for years - and then asks other nations to bail them out.

If you want to borrow money, you have to be willing to accept the terms that come with it, thats just how it is.

Greeks, like most people, were pretty much unaware of the fact that every day of their life after IMF introduction has a price tag which they will eventually have to pay. Every man, woman and child in 1st and 2nd world countries OWES money to the IMF without even knowing it.

Their administration, like every other administration has made a deal with the IMF, thus making this a potential "global corruption". Greek economy is only partly developed and only thanks to foreign private investors, who will now also suffer due to the "missing" IMF money.

Greek people themselves were and are living a very low standard, probably lowest in EU. The corrupt administration is large and not just limited to few politicians, it is very spread, and now has no more blood to suck. Though people can still be sucked even more with further cuts and decreases in life standard, seems like they won't give it away easy. People of Greece have been treated like cattle already, these new "solutions" their government offers is to see how far they can go.

Anyway, I somewhat understand the issue and all especially the rage because situation is similar in Serbia. It's like giving someone a million euros, sending your thugs to rob him on his way home and then telling him to repay the money or he's dead.

Greece is quite concerning, and only another reminder that this diabolical downturn is far from over. Now, I have heard reports on the news that Greece got themselves into this perilous mess because of government handouts, waste, corruption, and so on and so forth. However, when the rubber meets the road, it is going to be average everyday Greeks who are going to be devoured by poverty and a substandard quality of life.

I heard that practically everyone in Greece is expected to take some kind of significant pay cut as a stipulation for the IMF handout, but are everyday expenses like housing, food, clothing, and fuel going go down in price along with wages? Sadly, costs will probably remain, and the lowly Greek will be caught between a rock and hard place. In that scenario, it is only obvious that an escalation in robbing, looting, and pillaging could reach epidemic levels.

Another interesting side note would be what becomes of the Greek elite and the government officials who steered this country to destitution and oblivion? Will their quality of life suffer at the rate average Greeks will suffer? Greece is finished and all they are doing now is throwing a life raft that might as well be a lead weight. The violent outbursts are only a precursor to the wanton violence and carnage that will engulf the streets of Greece in the days and months ahead.

If I were Greece, I would tell the IMF and the international banking cartels, Thanks, but no thanks!" Personally, I see this as just more shackles, and making an already serious situation even worse. Perhaps, the entire system of the EU needs to be brought down a notch? Why allow one to suffer for the sake of saving others? Is Greece the sacrificial lamb for the EU? Now all of a sudden, Greece is thrown a bone by the its EU partners and the IMF, and is going to be made to suffer alone and autonomously? When just a few years ago things were great and they were valuable members of the so called "Eurozone?"

Now, Greece, who seemingly adhered to the European socialist model and are now experiencing the brunt of their actions while the rest of the European Union and the world is sticking their noses up at them with an unparalleled display of callousness and scorn. A bunch of hypocrites they are. If collapse and insolvency happens to Greece, it will most likely spread like a wildfire, given the cooperation of other economies in Europe and the world. Who will be next Italy, Spain, or Portugal? Welcome to our global community ladies and gentlemen, and good luck to the Greeks! They have a long hard road ahead of them.

No, they will not learn from it,

See what the Greek government wants to do to its citizens, already our US government been doing the same to us the tax payer in this nation for decades, with the culmination of the bailout for the wealthy and rich in the banking system at the expenses of generation to comes and is not over.

How many people walk to the streets and rioted against congress?

While American was against the bailouts we still allowed our government to pass the burden of the debt into us and so the burden of the debt of the HCR and what have we done about it? no a darn thing. . .

That' one of the numerous contributing factors:

Early retirement age, lack of income tax payments, high military spending (because of its neighbor Turkey) along with other fiscal follies.

I bet the IMF is behind this agenda of financial enslavement of Greece, because they have bribed the Greek political elite not to pay back the money, therefore letting the debt accumulate to unrepayable levels and therefore securing financial monopolization of the Greek economy. It's all by design.

i am a greek citizen and i must say that all these years everything was fine,there was none crisis
when papandreou(our p.m.) was elected,everything changed
you can call me a conspirancy theorist or a lunatic,but i believe that everything is a "set up"
G.Papandreou is more American than Greek,and the biggest part of his culture is American. I'm NOT saying that americana are bad or something like this,but think like me for a minute
Since Pasok(Papandreou's party) is in charge, our country's economy fails,something that leads us to ask for economical help.Then,there is the whole Chile thing,the Egypt thing,then the 'attack' against Berlusconi..
Every country at the "Balkans'" is going down,it fails,economical and political
The only country that doesn't fall is the US
B.Obama,France and Germany attack Chile..then they provide economical help to greece to make my country to be forever in debt to them..egypt has a "US-liked" goverment now,and the same will happen(if it hasn't happened already) with Chile
I may have tired you writing all these things but now i get to the point!
is it just a coincidence that every Balkanian coutry fails and knuckle under us and one or two powerfull european countries?i believe no..and i believe that in a not long time-distance there will be a war or something similar including us,germany and the weak balkanian countries..

i have more theories like that one,and i will be active in this site,if you want me to
sorry for my bad language,i'll try to improve it

Don't worry about your bad language, totally understandable as English is probably not your first language. Your message is still powerful and meaningful, I for one, really like to read posts from people living in Greece. Star for you matey.

Even if they did they are powerless until the people of the world learn to not demand things they can't afford.

just to launch a further speculation.... we may even see the emergence of the promised charismatic man that will have a solution to the worldwide financial mess we have allowed to occur...
that man could very well turn out to be the peace-maker person that becomes the anti-christ...
as he will come forth from the Greek region (including Macedonia) according to the prophetic words in Daniel
where it is explained the end times 'man' will come from one of the 4 kingdoms that came forth from the breakup of the Empire of Alexander the Great ....


yes indeed... there is a deliberate irony being played out on all of us...we the hapless masses caught up in these darkly-secret and orchestrated world events

we just want the world to know that we,greeks,as the most citizens of earth,will not just sit back and let them ruin us!as you possibly know,a so called revolutions has started,and for you people that don't know it,the "anarchists" that the last days attacked the greek police are paid from the goverment to do so.this way,the people that watch the news will not support the effort to change our future for the best and they will accept the things as they are.if you don't believe me google it,one of the 'anarchist' was found to be a cop,as many other times everything end to be a set up.
i don't know what you think,but i believe that our goverment since now is totally controlled by 'greater powers'.with that i mean other countries,not something supernatural
If anyone of you is watching what's happening here now,will see that the greek p.m. G.Papandreou said he will do anything for greece,even if that means that he will not be the 'chairman' for more..
when the things calmed down,the other politicians said that he didn't say that he will quit,but only if nesecery he will quit,and things like that..
I simply say that he was 'playing the hero'.so the greeks stop protsting cause they believe that he will quit,and by sending the 'anarchist forces'(from now i will reffer to them as a.f.) he humiliated the "Aganaktismenoi" movement..Now there is no way he will quit if no one protests against him again
The good of all this is that almost everyone in Greece undesrtood the dirty game of the goverment and will support the protest.Someone once said that "The person that got nothing to lose,will do anything"(i don't remember if it's from a movie,or from a real person,if anyone knows please tell me).
To be more specific,i,for example,am 17 years old,closing to be 18 and an adult,and i know that i have no future!i studied very hard to go into a university now i ended high school,and thanks to the corruption and the bribes,some other kids from rich families will take my place to the university i want(google it,some answers at the final exams,Panelladikes,will be accepted as correct even if they are wrong).but no matter how "high leveled" is the degree that i will get,no matter how hard i will try,when i'm out of the university i will have a very limited varation of jobs to do..so my plan,as the plans of many other greeks close to my age,is to raise some money from part time jobs,and then immigrate to a country for more job oportunities.they destroyed our future,our lives just to justify a small group of people..sacrificed a lot,for a few to gain..if you are a human being support us,and every other country's people that protest for real democracy
They think that because they have power and money they can control us.true,they can control us..but noone said that we cannot take control!i know that i started to say something and ended to something else,but they are all relaive to each other..a plan to economical destroy small but "important" countries,their try to feed us lies and make us to obey again..
Feel free to criticize what i wrote
