Wrong, they did ... and they do.
Several years ago, or more precisely about 10 years ago (if my recollection is correct), Iceland was bombarded with interrests about media. It used
to have shipping company, that had the true "swastika" on it, but was forced to remove it, from foreign preassure. It was the ancient symbol, not the
German swastika ... at the same, and some years before, the media had also gone through "reconstruction". Most of the media in Iceland is today
written by "foreigners", who in reality can't even write Icelandic correctly. And it's been like this, for the past 10 years. You're reading
"reuters" news, and news from MSM companies ... and the local news are scarse, poorly written garbage.
When the "crisis" rose, there was a group of comedians, called "spaugstofan", that was running in the local television every saturday. These guys are
about my age, although I don't know them personally, I met some of them when I was a kid. One of the main character, has the same name I do ... none
the less, these guys were extremely sarcastic, and "revolutionairy" in their role of making a farse of the whole situation. Bringing every single
item into a big "Saturday night" comedy.
Except they were "fired", for their "anti-government" attitude ... and, just hang on. Not by the government, they were actually protesting against.
But by the "socialistic" replacement. And you can guess why ... yes, they were afraid these guys would burn them as well ... this is the "change"
that has occurred, and always occurs, when you don't do a revolution. They'll learn how to "exclude" you, from the equation ... just like the
military does on their ventures. They now ensure, that the media that they have with them, is pro-militia media, and not some dork who is going to
report the next "Mai Lai".
This is the REALITY about Iceland ... Iceland is in DEEP DOH, to be putting it bluntly. Alcoa, the American aluminium giant, has several plants
there. And they just "forced" Iceland to put the price down. Iceland, that originally had a lot of possibilities in how to use the electricity they
can produce. One of these options was to set a string to the mainland, and sell energy to the mainland. The string would be paid for, by Europe, not
Iceland ... but Iceland made the bet on Aluminium, because of good relations with the Aluswiz company that had been there for decades.
What you call a good thing for Iceland ... is a nightmare, for the average citizen of Iceland. They're now literally selling the country to China,
for cash. Negotiating the complete overthrow of it's self determination to either the US, China or the European union. Enormous import of foreign
goods, including drugs, crime rate and poverty. And the average Icelandic citizen, who has been working up to two jobs a day, for all his life,
paying off the morgage of his house ... now owes, more than his house worth. Has lost all he has ... while at the same time, the so called
"peacefully" attained government, has allowed every BIG "wall street" type of personality, to literally "strike out" their depts ... and those
obligations BY FAR EXCEEDS THE FOREIGN DEPT. And all this money, is on the backs of the Icelandic citizen ... who stand to lose their home and their
yeah guys ... WHY DON'T YOU YOURSELF, WALK THAT SAME ROAD ... DON'T LEARN ANYTHING, JUST IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE THE FIRST GUY IN HISTORY THAT HAS EVER
OBTAINED ANYTHING FROM PEACEFUL PROTEST. ICELAND, SURE AS HELL DIDN'T.
