Greece: "A promise from the army has been obtained to not intervene against a civil uprising


www.newstatesman.com

It is always enlightening to hear the frank assessment of a diplomat upon leaving the service, once unshackled from "the patriotic art of lying for one's country", as 19th Century American journalist Ambrose Bierce described the craft.

Leonidas Chrysanthopoulos was a career diplomat with the Greek foreign ministry. As a junior officer with the service in the 1970s, he helped assure the then freshly democratic nation's accession to the European Union (at the time the EEC). He was at different times Athens' ambassador to Poland, Albania and Canada, and finally the director general of EU

This story from the New Statesman brings light to what is going on in Greece behind the scenes. It is a look how EU cadres, big business and security (Blackwater redux), and banksters have stripped the country then reset the rules for the people of Greece. One interesting tidbit is that the source confirms that the Greek government does not trust the police and has put in a layer of security control which is private from outside the country. Will this system of control be used on an ongoing basis in other locations to assure compliance?

To the standing armies of the world: take notes.

*Also, dont give up your guns.

That is all.

I wonder how many times in history a government has contracted a foreign military to police it's own people. If my understanding is correct this is what's going on here?

Epic fail, this is a sure fire way to ruin a country. Given enough time the military will step in and perform a coup on it's own government. This is such a tyrannical idea, it's almost unimaginable.

You'd be astounded how many urban environments our many-named friends blackwater have operated in.

Nice catch OP, Greece is our canary in the coalmine, we should all be paying attention.

Wow, this is really telling. An foreign security company being used to police your own people??



Chrysanthopoulos says that the government has hired Blackwater, the American private military firm infamous for its activities in Iraq, which now goes by the name "Academi", along with five other international for-profit security outfits. Explaining why this has happened, he says bluntly: “The Greek government does not trust the police whose salaries have also been cut.”


Is this the beginning of the end for the Greek government???

Looks like a SHTF scenario is about to go down in greece.




UPDATE: Academi have rejected Mr Chrysanthopoulos's claim. According to a spokesperson for Academi, the firm "does not now, nor have we ever, provided security services to any entity of the Greek government."


Wouldn't look good if this got out before the government had enough time to think of a good explanation.

WOW!!! There's your wakeup call Greece. How much more will the people take?

Sounds like "hand in the cookie jar" "Oh no you didn't" "Devil made me do it" TREASON!!!

...and the people and Greek military should take appropriate action.

The Situation in Greece, is emulated in matters of degree, by most western goverments.....
I believe there would be far more revolutionary activity, if it werent for the heavy use of PSYOPS by the various goverments to cotrol the people and keep them from uniting.

If this man is a partisan for a potential "civil uprising", then it would be in his interests to talk it up.
So allowances should be made for over-optimism, concerning "promises from the army".
It's possible that it should be reduced to "a couple of army officers that I know".

So they don't have enough money to feed themselves or bury the dead, yet the government is hiring Blackwater assassins? Wow. How can anyone not see how bad this banking situation has become? The world bankers need to be imprisoned for life.

I hope the birthplace of western civilization leads the way.

So what happens when/if Blackwater and other security companies overstep their collective bounds? Will the Greek military step in?

Greece and it's people have a lot of issues. The politicians are politicians and do what they do everywhere, placate their constituency in the form of socioeconomic handouts. The Greek people were not fond of paying income taxes. Many either didn't pay at all or just paid what they felt like. They had a much higher expenditure than revenue stream and the country went belly up. Sound familiar?

Want to know what happened there and in other countries facing the same situation, including the US? This explains it well and in lay terms so anyone can understand it. "Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World" by Michael Lewis.

The Greeks are averse to work (generalization) because they, over time, were allowed to retire very early and live a carefree life and all paid for by the government, which ran out of money. There were/are other problems as well, but that's a big part of it. Actually this is a problem in a good part of the EU. Socialism where everyone wants to be equal and no one wants to work more than the next person because they are ............... well, equal and if I have to work more then that's not equal.

No that is not it. The IMF and Goldman Sachs did this. Not the damn people. Why are there these people nowadays that want to blame the people for the banks greed?

People are scared.

We are on precipice and I don't care who you are, it's scary as hell.

Fear, will cause many people to switch their positions real quick. Everyone will be confused. Who to trust? Where do you throw your weight? What if you choose the losing side, even if it's the right side?

If I believed an international private police force was playing in my yard during a recession, I would be chomping at the bit for blood.

This is the worst piece of news to come out of Greece. Now you know that the rioters will not be holding back as I wouldn't be if I was in this situation.

we need to be watching what happens in Greece, as a precursor to what will soon happen in The. U.S. when the SHTF here as well.

Much of the military and police are waking up to all the globalist and banker agenda. I have quite a few friends in he Military, and when I brought all this stuff up to them, they already knew about most of it and said that they are read to fight the Gov't, if they go against the constitution and start fighting with civilians.

CRAZY Stuff is going down in Greece right now. Interesting times we live in.

Life is so fragile
