Well, it seems that the Greeks have added some new trick to their old Trojan Horse trick.
The Greeks want to be released from their solemn obligation to repay the 240 billion Euros they got the EU taxpayers to bail them out and pay for their past social welfare high-life style.
So what do you do? First you bad-mouth the people who gave you the money: they knew we were living beyond our means; they gave us money knowing that – so they don’t deserve to be repaid. That didn’t wash. Then you say that the EU lenders’ reforms is mean: so let us Greeks relieve our suffering caused by the EU bailout! That doesn’t seem to wash. And, the damned EU refused a haircut. And then, the damned EU refused some Greek pie in the sky language designed to never repay the debt.
So what do you do when you want to keep the 240 billion Euros?
WHY, TURN TO BLACKMAIL, of course ! GREEK GOVERNMENT BLACKMAIL, at that!
The Greek Defense Minister, Panos Kammenos, has now informed and threatened: if we don’t get what we want from the EU about forgiving our debts, then: WE ARE GOING TO GIVE EVERY REFUGEE AND PERSON WHO WASHES UP ON OUR SHORES OR AIRPORTS – GREEK GOVERNMENT PAPERS! Greek government papers means – EU PAPERS!
And then, in a nice twist of the knife: the Greek government will send all of them on to BERLIN!
And then, in a nice twist of the knife in the other direction: When there are masses of Islamic State terrorists among the migrants – now with EU papers – why then the EU is itself responsible for that, because of their stance on the Greek debt question !
The Greek cry of independence: “BILLIONS FOR US – OR – THOUSANDS OF TERRORISTS AND MILLIONS OF REFUGEES FOR THE EU” !!
Now, that’s what you call a true partner!
