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 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.

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.
