Nicolas Sarkozy threatened to pull out of euro over Greece row


www.telegraph .co.uk

President Nicolas Sarkozy threatened to pull France out of the European single currency unless Germany helped bail out Greece's economy and the wider euro zone, it has emerged.

The French President slammed his fist on the table while making the threat to tear to apart the EU last Friday at a crisis summit of euro zone leaders, diplomatic sources have confirmed.

Greece debate: Sarkozy slammed his fist on the table and threatened to pull France out of the euro, according to El Pais.

I strongly believe the reason globalist elite frontman Nicolas Sarkozy wants to pull France out of the Euro is not because he is a nationalist (he's a committed globalist, BTW), but it is for the implementation of a global currency the globalist elite want, and parallels with Biblical prophecy.

This is just highlighting a facade.

I heard this last night on the news here and the initial reaction from myself and others was dread.

I wish I knew more about economics so I could give an opinion that's based on something other than fear of the financial situation in Europe, but I can't.

Which leads me to thanking you for the thread - maybe I'll learn something here. I'll make sure and keep coming back to see what turns up here in posts.

Thanks and peace

I don't know much about the power invested in the French President, but can he make that call? Or would he have enough influence to get it changed back to the Franc?

Do you really think that a threat like that, assuming it could be done, would be a hard enough push to implement a one world currency?

I would think with the position China is in, they are the only ones who could force a one world currency.

How can you prove he is a committed globalist?

He makes some nationalist noises from time to time. He brought some national car manufacturing back into France, that's rather unprecedented these days.

There's no way that would happen. Sarko is very unpopular here in Frnce and that would be the last straw. After all the trouble people went through with changing currency, and in the midst of this crisis, I don't think many French people would support such a change. And even less French MPs. If TSHTEconomicalF, I'm not saying that wouldn't happen, but not now when we are still somewhat holding our sh*t together.

The article says that France, Spain and Italy want to make a united front against Germany. Well, as someone once said, 10 cripples tied together do not make one gladiator.

So if they do so, Germany, Benelux, Switzerland, Austria, and Scandinavia can get together and do their own thing.

I find it ironic that all of these broke nations are threatening Germany to leave them if Germany doesn't hand over a forklift load of cash.

Why is the EURO that important to Germany.

I also find it Ironic that within in the last 100 years two wars have been fought against Germany to stop them from taking over the world.

Now we witness all of Europe running to them on their knees begging to be saved.

I'm always found it interesting, before the EU enlargement, and even before Greece and Spain got in, that so many foreigners didn't want to live under the german flag 70 years ago but now wanted nothing more than to live under the german flag. Back in the day we (I was dual national german then) had any number of illegal immigrants from Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece, Czechoslovakia, not to mention all the legal italians and french.

But it's like all the former colonial powers, the colonized peoples couldn't wait for whitey to go home, and then after they went, the ex-colonized people started missing them and some now are willing to sell their children to buy illegal passage to the "mother country".

It seems to me that the various world economic crises are an elaborate juggling act, mean to confuse us. We think we know a little about what the end game is, but until then we're just dazzled by all the stuff TPTB manage to keep up in the air at the same time. At this point, I honestly believe that they could suffer a serious setback to their overall plan and we wouldn't even know it, because the whole situation is so chaotic.

The situation is not that difficult to grasp.

Germany is a talented and hard working nation. It is a rich nation and has natural resources. Right now, with the EU in turmoil and more bailout funds are needed, it is only prudent that each EU nation share this burden. In the event that Greece or the PIIGS nations fail or defaults, the risks are spread out evenly.

And more sinister, when the PIIGS bankrupts, it will the symbol of EU that walks all over these failed countries owing assets and slaves, and not as a single entity to be blamed or target for terrorists attacks.

The Germany of today is no longer that of the past, and a significantly large majority of Germans would puked at the idea of Nazism rising again. It is a horror to them, and they have no wish to relive such nitemares again, and more pragmatically, they may not even have enough to feed themselves being a socialist democracy.

EU is a joke. It would have succeeded during the 18th century of the largely uneducated masses, but not with the educated today. Soveriegnity is all. The NWO crap of globalisation, open borders, and free trade had been a lie, that only enriched the rich, but not the common people. UK and Germany had woken up to that fact.

Now its only if President Obama will wake up too, unless he knows something from the govt within a govt that Clinton claimed exists, that we don't.

I would actually support that, we have so much more in common compared to the PIIGS. Maybe an even smaller Scandinavian union based on the nordic model. Beats the hell out of EU...

I've been reading A Century of War by Enghdal recently and the chapters I'm read now are talking about the free trade policies of the British empire in the 19th century. Their free trade economy led to one of the worst depressions (1873-1896) the country has ever seen. Meanhwhile at the same time Germany through its nationalistic protectionist economic policies was becoming an economic powerhouse and by WWI was outpacing the British empire. Just a really fascinating read. The main reason behind WWI was the fact that the Germans were planning on building a railroad/oil pipeline all the way from Berlin to Iraq. It's a really good book I would recommend to anyone.

Despite the Nazi thing Germany has an amazing history economically speaking.

I still think this is all alot of hot air trying to damage the eu.

Scum out there do not like the fact that the eu countries are trying for something better.

All these so called nationalists did not exist in the past, you people moaning about national states did not care when you had them, so why you moaning now.

A good many European countries were opposed to the entire notion of the EU and were kind of forced into joining it so I'm not sure what your rant about nationalism has to do with anything.

No, the article says:

France, Italy and Spain had formed a "united front" against Germany and that Mr Sarkozy had threatened to break up the historic France-Germany "axis" that has been the cornerstone of European integration for more than five decades.


All this already happened (whether as reported or not we do not know), one week ago.

Euro currency is a test bed for one world implementation. It has proven that it too is vulnerable to collapse.
If we have a one world currency, it's a matter of time before it crashes. When it does, all countries suffer.

The merge between Bank of America and Merill Lynch was a strategic high-level conspiracy to impose financial stronghold in Europe. Feds were involved in it.
www.cbsnews.com...

I won't be surprised if a new currency being issued out of / traced to Germany.

The EURO shot Germany into the position of the worlds largest exporter for over a half a decade.. It gave them a massive common market that they pretty much controlled for exporting their products and enabled them to push for the sale of oil and commodities to be valued to their own currency and with which they powered their massive economy..

The Germans have profited the most from the EURO overall in power, stability, profitability and overall economic and political strength.. They have given the most to the EU but have in turn profited most from the EURO..

Thats why the EURO is important to them.. Any quick delve into the economics of Germany over the past decade will quickly reveal that..

Some Germans are pissed off now because Tabloid Newspapers are spreading ridiculous stories and pushing nationalistic notions.. But at the end of the day, they last thing Germany really wants is the break up of the EU and the EURO because instantly, there will be a destabilization of Europe similar to before the great wars..

To be fair dude.. Your logic is a bit strange..

Why would Sarcozy threaten to pull out of the EURO in order to force Germany to stabilize it if he didn't want it to succeed? Sarcozy is a high profile Globalist yes.. But since when is the unification of Europe not a massive Globalist agenda?

France and Germany are the two main benefactors of the common currency through their own power in determining its direction.. Their exporting power as a result of it.. Oil and Gas being sold in it.. Worlds second reserve currency.. etc etc the list goes on..

Also.. isn't the EURO the baby of the Globalists? And it always has been.. No question.. It has been a feature of Bilderberg, Trilateral Comm etc over the years and its success has apparently been one of their key strategies for decades..

And Biblical prophesy? This is the real world.. Not a metaphor written thousands of years ago and dissected and rearranged by corrupt power hungry men in Rome to suit their wants.. How can anyone use something like that as a guide to the future? Its like using Star Trek as our look into the future..

Nice post. Good arguments. Maybe the 4th Reich is very much alive and well in the world.

All euro countries have benefited from the euro, except of course the ones who are not in it.

Well said dermo, there is someone or some group out there trying to destroy the euro or eu or something, with all this bad news.
