Germans set -up Greece for failure

2015-07-16 07:37

A new bail-out package devised by Eurozone lenders has been approved by the Greek parliament- via an austerity bill-despite strong opposition by the governing Syriza party, and as street protests turn violent. 

The bill was approved with the support of three pro-European opposition parties, imposing sweeping tax hikes and spending cuts.

Prominent members of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ ruling party opposed the bill, including former Finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, who referred to it as The “Greek Terms of Surrender,” it has also been dubbed as “a new Versailles Treaty” abdicating Greek sovereignty to Germany.   

Prophecy blogger Scott raises some interesting perspectives, calling the bail-out terms the “deal that was designed to fail”. The IMF has indicated they may walk away unless Greece is provided with extensive debt relief- something Germany and their allies have refused to do as he notes.   

Scott maintains that the Germans are hoping to push the Greeks out of the Eurozone and by setting the bar so high in respect of the bail-out terms; the Greeks can’t possibly comply, providing the perfect set-up–to fail-scenario. 

And Paul Krugman of the New York Times agrees with his assessment.

It’s been suggested that even though the bill is passed by parliament, “the Greek people will annul the bill through their unity and struggle”.

Prime Minister Tsipras said he was informed by lenders to the effect “that in countries under bailouts there is no point in holding elections”.   

So Greece’s sovereignty has now been relinquished to a few unelected bureaucrats, and its Prime Minister is their puppet?

Meanwhile, fire bombs are being thrown in the streets by the country’s betrayed citizens.

Dozens of hooded and masked protestors lined the streets of Greece’s capital, and threw rocks and stones, as violence erupted on the side lines at a rally of 12,500 people.    

Is the Greek Spring now under way?
