I feel heartbroken for the Greek people. Tortured by the German, abandoned by the other countries and betrayed by their own leaders. All along, Greek loans funds never reached the Greek people. They mainly helped French and German banks speculating on Greece bonds high interest rates. Those loans issued with fake euros are now asked to be reimbursed with real euros. And if that was not enough, the money is imposed on the poor Greek people. How far can outrageous injustice go without condemnation?
Let’s not forget that Alexis Tsipras was the Party of the European Left nominee for President of the European Commission in the 2014 European Parliament election. All along Alexis Tsipras has been favoring the euro over his own people hope for independence. He should have reflected on Churchill vision before pushing his troubled country into an even more disastrous debacle.
“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” — Winston Churchill speaking to Neville Chamberlain after the Munich Peace Treaty signed with Hitler in 1938.
The first European domino has fallen. German imperialism is now all about political conquest and no longer about economy. Who will be next victim? Portugal, Spain, Italy, France? German imperialism failed twice militarily. Will they succeed without a gunshot in their third attempt? The other European countries apathy surely give them a window of opportunity for revenge. Those countries appeasing attitudes evoke another Churchill quote.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. Winston Churchill
