You Greeks better find some guns ASAP.
Don't worry, there are plenty of guns in the hands of the citizens in Greece.
There are also plenty of people who have military training who aren't part of the armed forces, but would drop what they were doing and pick up a gun
to defend their country in an instant.
And just because some former diplomat says the military chiefs have given their word the army wont intervene, that doesn't mean that it's true. It
also doesn't mean that those below them will agree and sit idly by while the country is torn apart.
This so called "news" is not being reported anywhere except for fringe sites which aren't trustworthy or reputable.
Greek media would have been all over this, if it were true, by now. And they aren't.
Put it this way..the army will not intervene unless the streets of Athens turn bloody in a clear break down of civil order where the government and
the police are unable to maintain control. THAT is when the army will step in. But they will not step in and over throw the government. They will step
in and restore order to the streets. And guess who will order them to do so? The government.
There are plenty of people in the army, and police for that matter, who are pissed off. Not pissed off because their wages have been cut, but pissed
off because the political establishment in the country is a complete disaster. Their ARE foreign interests at play here, who are directing this from
behind the scenes. This whole crisis was by design, so are the outcomes now.
What they want, is a complete break down of civil order in Greece. They want to see new lows reached.
Because when that happens, they can then use their puppets, the political establishment in Greece, to basically redesign Greek society from the ground
Refer to what Henry Kissinger said decades ago about Greece and the Greeks..
What he said needs to happen, is exactly what has been happening and what is happening.
Till this day, Greece has been a massive roadblock to American interests in the region. Why? Because American interests have clashed with Greek
It is not in Greece's interests to share it's natural resources in the Aegean with Turkey who has no right to them.
It is not in Greece's interests to allow FYROM to be called Macedonia, with clear irredentist and expansionalist claims against Greece.
It is not in Greece's interests to abandon Cyprus and let the Turks have their way with it.
But, so long as Greece stands, there's not much that can be done. They cant declare war, because Greece is technically an ally.
They have tried to force a war between Greece and Turkey, but Greece has been on guard and the armed forces remain on guard still(as can be seen by
the extremely high number of exercises being held over the last few years) even if the politicians have bent over for foreign interests.
So, attack economically, where you are not exposed as the attacker. I mean, we have our theories, but I can't provide you with physical proof of what
Attack culturally, where you are not exposed as the attacker.
One look at the Greek music scene these days, and it's basically American pop music with Greek lyrics.
The dancing, the sound of the music, the outfits..there's nothing Greek about them.
There's even Greek rap music now.
You then have Turks, FYROMians, Albanians, and God knows who else, claiming parts of Greek culture and history. With money from foreign NGO's, like
those controlled by George Sorros. Now that name alone should scare the crap out of you all. The fact he is involved, means that nothing good will
come out of any of this in the short term. And if people like him have their way, in the long run as well.
Claims that the government have hired Blackwater and other foreign private paramilitary/security firms, are unsubstantiated.
Remember to keep in mind who the source of this news is. In this case, some magazine site. And on what section is this news posted on? The BLOG
It also does not provide ANY evidence or proof that the former diplomat said anything of the sort.
The usual tell tale signs of a quote, of a source, etc etc, that can be found in credible sites.
But, having said all that, there is one thing that all these people who are conspiring to become wealthier at the expense of the Greeks, at the
expense of the Italians, Spanish, and all the people of this world, have not factored in, is that the Greeks will stand up and they will fight,
without any regard for death.
My life is not as important as upholding the values and ideals that our forefathers established.
If me fighting, and dying, helps to uphold those values and ideals, then that is what I will do.
They might win, we might "lose" Greece for a few years or longer..but we will never give up and stop fighting till we win.
