Dearest and Esteemed People of Greece, You are being slaughtered right in front of the world’s eyes and nobody says beep. Least the Greek elite. Your Government. A few, but a few too many, allow the slaughter because it doesn’t concern them. They are blinded by the false glamour of the euro and of belonging to the ‘elite class’ of the noble Europeans (sic!).
This is the beginning of an open letter to Greeks by an author of the Canada-based institute Global Research. Author Peter Koening* urges Greeks to rise up, default on their debt and lean towards Rusia and Trump-run USA.
Calling the Greek government, “the caviar socialists of Syriza,” Koening writes:
They let their country bleed to death literally, morally, socially and psychologically. Medical care is no longer available or privatized and unaffordable. Pensions were reduced five times. They were never more than a survival kit. By now they have been slashed in some cases by over 50%. Hordes of people live on food handouts. Most social services, including to a large extent education have been sold out, privatized.
Lashing out at Germany and the holy roika – the criminal gang of three, IMF, European Central Bank (EIB) and the European Commission (EU); the latter a mere bunch of unelected corrupt puppets, the author incites Greeks to:
People of Greece! – Wake up.
Take things in your own hands! Don’t believe you politicians, your media! Get out of this criminal organization called the European Union, and this fraudulent western monetary system that is strangling you to death. Take back your sovereignty, your own currency. Default on your debt – the west can do nothing about it. Not if you run your country with your own public banks, and your own money, gradually but surely rebuilding a destroyed economy. Debt repayment is negotiable. […]
People of Greece, be aware of what is going on. Do NOT ACCEPT what your government, Brussels and the troika are doing to YOU and YOUR country. To the contrary, request the full reparation payment from Germany – and demand GREXIT, as a fully legitimate follow-up to YOUR July 2015 overwhelming NO vote to more austerity-imposing troika ‘rescue’ packages.
If you do, you will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel — a light that has been blacked-out for too long by Germany and the gangsters of the troika and your own government.
The article is long and kind of fuzzy, and the general idea KTg undestands is that the Greek people reject SYRIZA, New Democracy and Golden Dawn, exit the eurozone, claim their “sovereignty” and “own currency” back, be unshackled from the dictate of Brussels – and start afresh.
Without pointing at specific political ideology, Koening underlines that
Surely, Greece still has visionaries and the wisdom to remake Democracy. Remember, while we cannot change our geographic location – the future is irrefutably in the EAST.
With East obviously meaning Russia and Putin. What is also interesting is that the article is in favor of US President Donald Trump and his populist struggle against the “Deep state establishment” in Washington before he came into the White House.
What I find rather sad is that this article – which I saw on internet two days ago – has started to be re-posted and re-tweeted by people in Greece whom I know they are critical to the EU. As if Putin and Trump would not have an eye of Greece’s natural resources in the Aegean and the Mediterranean Sea as Germany and the EU claimed to want.
In this sense, I have to ask:
- Is the dilemma for Greece: Putin/Trump or the EU?
- Which capital has the better or the worse propaganda? Brussels, Kremlin or the new Washington?
Having run this website and blog since the Greece crisis broke up and the first bailout in may 2010, my experience has showed that those who supported Greece during the crisis were not always driven by the noble motive like the welfare of the Greek society. When the truth started to come out, I realized that Greece’s supporters were not critical towards the EU but merely anti-EU and pro-Grexit at any cost. After the administration change in Washington, the mask fell and I slowly start to understand and see the light.

PS Conspiracy theories sell well, especially when they fit well to the Greek conspiracy theory and the “Blond Nation” – the Russians – that will save Greece *sigh*
