Because the Iceland revolution is a joke, and to even mention it on here ... shows what sort of a moron you are.
Iceland is NOT recovering from it's crisis. And this is why:
During the Iceland crisis, the nation "denied" categorily to pay it's dept to foreign investors. However, Icelandic big capital owners, who had used
the previous "bubble" to enrich themselves, completely and utterly "destroyed" all reference to their liability. This liability outweighed what
Iceland owned to foreign holders.
Foreign holders, have NOT "forgiven" Iceland ... the holding is currently in the EU, which WILL eventually take up the issue, when Iceland is forced
Iceland had deposits of oil on it's northern borders. The Island Jan Mayen is actually Icelandic, but currently held by Norway. Iceland has been
totally incapable of any or all political as a share from it's own deposits. And every oil company in the world is ignoring Iceland, which means
Norway will get it all. Icelanders are completely boneless morons.
Iceland has now, been allowed to export some of it's goods to it's neighbor countries. Some products, never before exported, are now available. This
is a "big brother, helping out little tim" kind of effort. Not Iceland being able to do anything ... In fact, Iceland hasn't even been able to export
it's own sheep meat to it's brethren the Nordic countries. The Nordic countries go to New Zealand for meat, rather than Iceland. This is just to
show, how incompetent Icelandic negotiators are.
The Only thing Iceland has going for it ... is sympathy, and that isn't going to last.
In fact, the Icelandic public had been far better of ... .locally and internationally, to pay out their foreign depts to holders in Holland and
England. And then NOT to allow politicians and big profile people, to "nullify" their liabilities in Iceland. The liabilities they nullified is not
the few rich men types, like "Bonus" company, etc. It's high profile people, that during the "bubble" created "shares" out of their own home economy
... literally speaking. The amount of corruption there, is boundless ... and it isn't only tied to "giving government business and banks, to friends
Iceland is a country, severly severed ... it's structural integrity, is built on danish stuff. It's laws have swedish background, and it's population
go to Norway to work. They hate the british, and danes ... but work with both for cash. They are communist, to the extreme ... think the President
Olafur Ragnar Grímsson, who is probably one of the reddest reds in Iceland, and according to Icelandic law should not have been able to become
president. As the presidency requires that person to be non-Political. And honestly speaking, there is not a more political person on this planet,
than Olafur Ragnar. This guy, tried to sell the Old US Naval station in Keflavik, to the Russians ... for cash. And currently, Iceland is trying
it's best to smooth things with the Chinese for a bit of cash. Giving the Naval station to the Chinese, has even been mentioned ... that is the kind
of people, we are talking about.
Iceland has absolutely no political road, vision or anything from that sort. Currently, they are trying with the EU, but will fail ... and in the
end, unless they change ... they'll end up, in 20 years or so. Being unwanted, and undesired, and as a slave nation to the US. It's basically the
destiny of Iceland to become a slave nation, of some other foreign party ...
And this revolution you talk about, were basically people ... who suffer speech impairment. Their speeches were totally incoherent. Lacked vision
... not once, during any of these speeches did anyone come up with an idea of what to do afterwards. The only idea was "Get the old government out",
and the current foregin minister voicing his promises that "there will be oil for Iceland in Jan Mayen". If any government in Iceland has broken it's
promises, it's the government they got instead of the old one ... that government is worse than Obama ... not one word has been kept ... not one.
And, to be honest ... they're pretty much like the OWS group. Completely visionless hippies ... their only idea, is to live like hippies ... they
think the world will work that way.
Do you know WHY the Icelandic people demonstrated? It wasn't because they thought the corruption, during the "bubble" was bad. In fact, every single
Icelander new what this bubble was. Playing the "stock" system, was in 1998, a national game in Iceland.
No, ladies and gentlemen, it wasn't integrity that got the Icelandic "revolution" going. It was the fact, that the money went out ... and the beer at
the bar, dried up. No money, not beer, no drugs, no "brennivín" ... no fun.
Take it easy on the white stuff .... it's not good for yer brain.
