20 July 2011. It Ain’t Over Until It’s Over… Striking Greek Cabbies Block Parliament Entrance

Them Greeks ain’t givin’ up! The transnational Five Percenters think that they’ve got the Greeks over a barrel… they’d best think again. One of these days, the Greek coppers are going to throw up their hands, put down their clubs, and say, “Enough!” They’ll join the protesters just as the Egyptian John Law types did. What are the Ayn Rand fanatics to do then? Send in US troops to brutalise the Greeks? Ponder this… there’s no money for Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and schools… but there’s BILLIONS (three current wars, and a fourth “in the oven”) for attacking weaker countries to impose the will of the Corporatist oligarchs. Think on that deeply… that’s the platform of the New GOP, kids… Ike warned us about the Military Industrial Complex… Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Walker, Priebus, Palin, and Bachmann all embrace it. The New GOP isn’t about cutting costs… it’s about sending the sons of poor families to die in foreign parts for the enrichment of the Five Percenters. The next time that you pass a McMansion, think on that…

17 June 2011. A Russian POV… Greek Police Brutalise Demonstrators at the Behest of the IMF

The Revolution will not be televised; the Revolution will be live!

Gil Scott Heron


Here, we see a Greek policeman brutalising a demonstrator in Athens. Actually, this is a GOOD thing. Firstly, the cops are, in the main, workingmen themselves. They live in working-class neighbourhoods, amongst ordinary people. That is, they KNOW that if they’re TOO nasty, their neighbours could take matters into their own hands. Ergo, there’s only so much that the cops will do at the behest of the oligarchs. That limit, I believe, has been reached for many of them, and the rest won’t take much longer. When that happens… it’ll be CAIRO in Athens. That’ll discombobulate the rightwing bankers and their media lapdogs. Trust me, this is a GOOD sign… it means that a cleansing climax is near. What’ll happen after that? Damned if I know… my crystal ball is on the fritz… it WON’T be boring, that’s for certain…
