Greece – Black Friday – Blackmailed into Capitulation? Tsipras’ Austerity Plan


10 July 2015

Dear friends and comrades of the Delphi Initiative, 

Today’s dawning divulged a horror scenario – The Syriza government practically capitulated on the demands of the troika, of the murderous tyrannical Brussels Parliament, EC and ECB.  Against the will of the people, Mr. Tsipras and his new Finance Minister proposed an austerity Plan that is almost impossible to be rejected by the Brussels self-denominated emperors of Europe. 

The crucial point is that Greece still has no Plan B – a Plan B which  most probably in exclusivity call for an immediate exit from the Eurozone.

As it is today, hardly anybody dares talking openly about the MUST of an exit from Euro, that this is the only salvation, at least salvation that we, humans, can see in our dimension of life and death.

Why is it so difficult?

Well, after the events of last night and this morning – 9 and 10 July – the apparent capitulation – it has become ever so clearer that there is ‘something’ behind what’s going on with Brussels, that as usual, the strings are pulled in Washington. Washington is pressing its stooges, Brussels, EC and EU Parliament through the ECB (in the hands of Goldman Sachs) to not let Greece exit from the Euro, and simultaneously they are threatening Greece not to exit the Euro. There is too much at stake for their – the US empire’s – ‘security’ which is global hegemony, through NATO, predominantly in Europe.

NATO, they fear, may fall apart if Europe and the Eurozone fall apart as a result of a mass exodus that could be triggered through Greece’s sovereign decision – the people’s overwhelming choice to say NO to economic waterboarding of the EU and the corrupt Eurozone. 

NATO is everything for the US, together with the US army, it is the backbone of its economy – more than 50% of it depends on the US military industrial complex and its related industries and services – NATO is also the constant threatening sledgehammer, hence the violent security branch, NATO is the military instrument to keep the world in check and to ultimately achieve full spectrum world dominance  – and FED, Wall Street and IMF are the financial instrument to suffocate the western world if it doesn’t conform to the neoliberal doctrine. – A socialist state by definition doesn’t conform to neoliberalism. So it has to be punished to death.

To death – literally. It would not come as a surprise if Alexis Tsipras and his Finance Minister and other Syriza members would have been – or actually are – threatened with death if they don’t behave and submit to the dictate of the EU and the Eurozone.

Does that sound too radical?  Too much of a flavor of ‘conspiracy theory’? – Just look at Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ukraine, Sudan and lately South Sudan – and in Latin America, Venezuela, Ecuador (President Roldos in 1981), Panama (Omar Torrijos 1981) – all and more, compliments of the US CIA and other secret service henchmen.

Not at all radical.

If this is considered as a background – the stuff nobody talks about, but is constantly being played out, then the situation becomes more complex and even more obvious for Greece to unanimously exit the Euro and start afresh.

As it has been said before – financial assistance is waiting from the BRICS bank,a ssured by Russia and China – an instant line of credit for the necessary imports to make hospitals again operational, for the production apparatus to import what is waiting since days in Piraeus – but can’t be unloaded because of lack of liquidity – and nationalizing the Greek banks, infusing starting capital in the newly habilitated Greek Central Bank – and for taking back some of the key privatized public services into the public domain.

In the meantime, the ECB owes Greece 17 billion euros which they purposefully withhold. The BRICS bank could transfer these euros to Greece as a debit to the ECB. All this sounds like a radical financial move; though all is legal, or as legal as what the troika is doing to Greece.

It could shake up the world’s (western world, that is) financial order. And it should.

My proposal is that The Delphi Initiative assist the Greek Government in setting up the mechanisms for these sovereign moves to gain back independence and a workable economy.  

Debt renegotiation towards full write-off is Step Two.
