Martin Armstrong: "Their delusion of one government will end war in Europe is fostering the very premise they claim to be trying to eliminate"




To all the Greeks sending emails my criticism of your government is they lack any understanding of who their opponent really is. This is World War III with a pen, but they are trying to amass a European Army so they can police the people of all member states.

The Greek government’s mistake was assuming they could negotiate with people who were trying to take over Europe. They were out of their league. The only way Greece could have proceeded was to immediately announce that they were suspending payments on all debt. Only then could they have achieved the upper hand. As long as Greece accepts handouts, they should count their fingers after shaking hands. This has turned into precisely what Margaret Thatcher warned about and why she kept Britain out of the Euro. You are dealing with a political drug dealer who hopes you will surrender everything to get the next fix and become dependent upon Brussels. Their delusion of one government will end war in Europe is fostering the very premise they claim to be trying to eliminate.

The new government should have immediately printed drachma. That would have sent a signal to Brussels play fair or cry at the foot of your bed for your dream of European domination ends here. Greece would have seen their own people return by truly reforming government and the way it interacts with society would have set the example that Democracy just perhaps can rise from the ashes.
