You can blame Greece and Greeks for the new super duper austerity program Syriza--who said they'd never accept austerity--adopted or plans to adopt pretty much being "forced" to do so (or not...for pity sake do they just have to have the freakin' Euro? Really?), or you can blame Merkel, who some claim is a Rothschild or Hitler's daughter-in-law once removed or whatever...for forcing this ridiculous austerity plan on Greece. I blame them both. Sorry, but I do not think that Greece, who robber Peter (their own people, even those "lazy" Greeks you always read about on Libertarian websites, as if when someone takes a vacation every now and then in a vacation-friendly country it's an abomination!) to pay Paul (their own oligarchs and banksters who ripped off Greeks in the first place!) should be allowed to just walk off scot-free, and certainly the Rothschild-owned European Central Bank together with the IMF (why oh why is the head of this abomination named Lagarde?) and the rest of the so-called Troika, which should be ridden off into the Lake of Fire... these should not get off scot-free either. Because whether you think only Greece will be hurt by this, then you do not realize that Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, and eventually even the (bogus) "economic powerhouse", aka Germany, will face the music they created.
So why is Germany in particular (since they basically run the EU, right?) so obsessed with destroying Greece?
Fact is Germany, dating from WW2 when Hitler invaded the place (see the movie "The Guns of Navarrone" for a depiction of Nazi occupation of Greece), was supposed to pay Greece war reparations, and they have yet to do so. The fact that Greece has over the years and now demanded that Germany pay these reparations they agreed to pay after the war, and that they have refused to do so and have gotten away with refusing to do so because, you know, Germany is better than Greece and all that crap...and since Germany runs the EU and all, well, like any Mafia Don, they'd rather make Greece and offer Tsipiras will be assassinated over if he refuses... Methinks this whole thing is a just a bit more personal than, say, what Germany and the EU did to Cypress.
Of course I'm being facetious about Tsipiras's assassination...but with the psychos running Europe, who knows?
