The Euro collapse: A working form of warfare without bombs?The Euro vanquished: ideas and musings
From Washington Post:
Sell-off continues on Wall Street, following Europe's lead
UPDATED at noon:
The big stock sell-off continues on Wall Street as trading hits mid-day. This is turning into an end-of-the-week rout, thanks to continued worries
about European debt and stability of the euro.
To be honest, I smell a rat here. The press is too "gloaty" describing the troubles with the Euro (of which the Northern Europeans. oddly enough,
feel preciously little. They are not as dependent on exports to America, as America is dependent on export to Europe. Apparently Europe is fairly
self-sufficient, if only for the fact that they are not as dependent on the outside world's resources as America seems to be)
Picture this scenario:
-Goldman&Sachs "help" Greece keep their dysmal economics under wraps for the Euro commission. The Euro does remarkably well. The Euro jumps from
$0,89 in the infancy of the monetary union, to $1,50 at a certain point, basically because Europe still produces stuff inside their borders, and have
the smooth infrastructure to get it around. With all this succes came the "dangerous" assertion that f.i. single-payer, public-option healthcare
seemed to work and that these "commie" states in Northern Europe did pretty well. A meme that frightened a lot of TPTB to the bone.
-Greece joins the Euro-zone under false bookkeeping (again, aided by the sociopath brains at G&S).
Does not seem to be related....until, suddenly, Greece is "unmasked" and the Euro plummets.
What if..and just "what if" Greece was a satchel-charge, or "Debt-charge" (heh..), primed by invisible, but very powerful financial moguls, to
blow the Euro out of the water, if push would come to shove? A well-crafted, carefully prepared form of "Economic terrorism" or, if you like,
-The Euro was getting bloody expensive and too important world-wide.
Slowly, but surely, Arab oil-producers started eye-ing the Euro as a viable determinant of oil-prices, as did a large part of Africa (and do not
forget diamonds and gold!!). This, naturally, enraged&panicked the "US$ to oil"-based corporations, that saw their US$ monopolies crumble, let
alone the Wallstreet robber-barons that where all invested in Dollars "because the Euro could never get anywhere"
Buut TADAA! Goldman&Sachs to the rescue: They had the detonator in their hands, and pushed it.
Kablooi! Greece almost bankrupt, Euro gone...out of the water. Mega-profits in DOLLARS ensured. And that pesky, rather successful upstart, called
Far fetched? I don't think so. Wars with guns and bombs are no longer fought between "civilized" states. Wars nowadays are fought in the shady
world of gargantuan financial deals, by bits,bytes, cisco-routers & processor time. No explosions, no apparent deaths .
War&terrorism as "clean" as it gets, yet , still "war" with, as victims perpetually "the common man". A war fought by the elite, this time with
computers&programmers as their soldiers, however with still the same purpose: "kill that which you do not like and stands in the way of amassing
wealth, and get even richer in the process"
it's just a "what if" scenario. Not something The CIA, NSA, or any other special-intrest defending organisation could come up with. Isn't it?
It is basically the comment i already gave in the WaPo, but I would like to hear some of Your thinking, Your insights.
Am I paranoid? Right on track? Somewhere close? or completely off?
Go ahead. share.
