Regarding “The Varoufakis View: Don’t Trust Tsipras” (online, Aug. 20), former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis sums up exactly what the problem in Greece is, which can be rectified only by the Greek people. This says it all:

“The cost was huge since 2010 and it is entirely due to the Troika’s wrong program,” he said, referring to the European Union-European Central Bank-International Monetary Fund (EU-ECB-IMF) that provided two first bailouts of 240 billion euros ($273.88 billion) from 2010-2012. “My mistake …

  1. I agree with the author’s message, but Tsipras is really only the tip of the treasonous iceberg. Greece’s, and all other Euro member nations’, sovereignty was compromised the moment they willingly joined the EU. Conversely, the U.S. Confederacy, which the author alludes to, was COERCED to stay in the union despite their desire to secede ( much like the original 13 colonies seceded from the British)
    In addition, ALL “bailouts”, including Greece’s, and despite any altruisms from the IMFs or World banks, and regardless of nations (Argentina, Russia, Thailand, Cyprus) are primarily designed to the rescue the LENDERS / CREDITORS (mostly international banks) from bankruptcy, not the respective BORROWER nations.
    Ultimately, Greece, and her doomed, inept, and painfully inefficient social programs were destroyed by borrowing and spending their way to insolvency. The treasury is empty.

    1. Who cheated their way INTO the EU?
      Who perfected ANTI-AMERICANISM?
      Who perfected CHEATING ALL SYSTEMS, ESPECIALLY THEIR OWN?

      The precious Hellenes, that’s who.

      1. Thank you for showing up…Spiro! AS I said…what would Peter Pan be without Captain Hook! For the readers …Spiro ..is one of those Ahepa Masons of the secret society of Ahepa …who serves the “Glory of Ameirica” ….not the Glory of Greeks!

        Therefore , you can understand how Captain Hook and his merry Pirates….consider Greece…an enemy of America….as well as the Orthodox Church! You can understand …why he considers China, Russia …and for that matter any independent country of the world to protect its sovereignty and interests as enemies of America!

        The problem …is Spiro ..it is fanatics like you and your cult….who make the enemies of America….Greece’s enemies and all the other countries of the world …who are not compliant to the Economic, Political and military control of a Fascist Regime …that is dropping one bomb every 12 minutes on some country of the world …to make them impotent to resist …or destroy their country outright!

        It is not the Hellenes … who cheated their way into the EU…. it is the Glorious white supremacist from America who cheated Greece into the EU! Just like they cheated Cypurs…. in getting Turkey into Cyprus!

        It is not the Hellenes…. who perfected Anti-Americanism…it is the white Supremacist of the corrupt U.S government of the United States! When they kill 600,000 Iraqi’s based on lies, or 3/1/2 million Vietnamese based n lies! Or allow the Ethnic and Religious cleansing of Greeks in Cyprus by Turkey, and you reward these purveyors of death and destruction ..by arming to the teeth …Turkey to continue to threaten Greece…because they are merely enemies of Greece…not the degenerates of the new breed of Global tyrants…that are a cross between Fascist and Communist!

        It is not the Hellenes who are cheating All Systems, especially their own….it is America that is cheating all systems…and have accrued a 26 Trillion dollar debt… and whose GDP ration is reaching … Greek levels of 129%…

        You see Captain Hook ….it is you and your Pirates who have spread this corruption , It is you and your pirates who have controlled Greece since the Marshal Plan…and it is you and your pirates who have maintained the Glory of America over the people of Greece!

        Today… You Captain Hook and your Ahepa mason…have joined your idol …John Bolton ..in advising the members of the International Criminal Court at the Hague… and let me helpl you Spiro….these are the historic independent members from various countries…who can indict and prosecute …the leaders of the world …for crimes against humanity and war crimes….that their plans for indicting the United States , Israel and any other of their freinds…will subject them to economic sanctions, personal sanctions… and criminal liabilities requiring extradition to America !

        Well Captain Hook…. I don;t think you will have to worry …about Greece ever being independent from the EU, NATO , or The United States, because until we as American stand up …and confront these degenerates…the whole world is impotent to stop people like you!

        To this end…Captain Hook … their perfect Anti -American Patriot …has spoken up as follows …related to what has taken over America … as follows!

        U.S military Veteran and Congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii has slammed U.S. foreign policy and in particular …in Syria!
        “Since 2011, both overtly and covertly , the United States has been providing arms, intelligence, and equipment to fighters who are allied with fighting along side working with Al Queda in this regime change war!

        SO THESE VERY SAME TERRORIST WHO ATTACKED US ON 9/11, WE’VE BEEN SUPPORTING FOR YEARS, AS THE GROUND FORCES TO FIGHT IN THIS REGIME CHANGE WAR THAT WE HAVE BEEN QUIETLY WAGING NOW FOR SEVEN YEARS!

        “WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND VP PENSE GIVE 9/11 SPEECHES ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY CARE ABOUT THE VICTIMS OF AL QUEDA’S ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY, THEY ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY ACTING AS PROTECTORS OF AL QUEDA IN SYRIA/IDLIB , THREATENING RUSSIA AND SYRIA, THAT IF THEY ATTACK ALQUEDA , WE WILL PUNISH THEM.”

        CONGRESSWOMEN TULSI GABBARD …U.S. MILITARY …TWO TOURS OF DUTY
        IN IRAQ …MEMBER OF THE ARMS SERVICES COMMITTEE….AND NOT AN
        EVANGELICAL WHITE SUPREMACIST…..BUT BUDDIST FAITH!

        This is what …the American leader of Greece should be…not the traitor Tsipras and his Syriza party …who have cheated not only Greeks in Greece …but the entire culture of the Greek people!

        So Captain Hook….take your Ahepa pirates and Mason out of our churches, and out of Greece and America …and get yourself placed in a rehab center for brainwashed losers!

  2. All sounds pretty accurate except for one thing. Ridding Greece of the US and NATO is an invitation to Erdogan to scoop up as much Greek land as he can get.

    1. The modern (post-Junta) Greeks are uber socialists and Marxists and will not fight for their country. They need NATO and the Yanks or they will perish. They bear no resemblance to Leonidas, Themistocles or even Kolokotronis.

  3. Keeping an insolvent, economically dependent Greece in the EU, and instead inviting Merkel “to scoop up as much Greek land as (s)he can get”; is any better???

    1. It’s the Chinese and the Russians that want and are acquiring not only land but infrastructure as a backdoor to Europe for the Chinese ONE ROAD concept and for oil, LNG, and opium from Afghanistan via Turkey.

      The Greeks are selling willingly and unwillingly. The Russian Patriarchate collides with Russian-Chinese and Turkish interests. Greece will racially morph into a Central Asian country, Greek names but everyone will look like the basketball “Greek Freak” or like JiJong Ping. Lowest birth rate in Europe. Abort your way into extinction, sweetie!

  4. Cheated their way in, yes but the EU knew the books were cooked, yet wanted 11million more people to sell too, and to be a part of their slave uber nations.
    And yes the Chinese want to make Greece a third world Hong Kong, just using greece as an entryway and transit point to the rest of Europe, greece’s cut nothing few token taxes. Left and Right will both sell out for a few euros…greece will not survive a free and independent nation….

    1. What right? You act like there’s a real difference in Greece. Greece is all Marxist and has been for 50 years. That’s why China and Russia are so appealing to them. They did it to themselves, just like the he Greek Church in America did it to itself. Neither can accept responsibility.

      1. Hey Captain Hook…. alias Spiro…spare us another of your Ahepa State department Scripts concerning Russia and China …since it merely … reflects the anger of Evangelical white supremacist…. who have treated Greece and the rest of the world …like inferior species…not entitled to run their country and maintain their cultures …in order to impose a Global order …compliant to the domination of these deviates in Washington D.C. and Brussels!
        But let me help you …. and clarify , who is really… looking to grab land and water …like the Persian empires…Greece has faced before…. and is best highlighted by one of our Fascsit leaders …who pretty much …confesses to how they will control Eurasia….and in so doing ….must conquer Russia and China…. the current tenants of the Eurasia land mass!
        In his opening remarks to the Senate committee members Mitchell stated:

        “The starting point of the National Security Strategy is the recognition that America has entered a period of big-power competition, and that past US policies have neither sufficiently grasped the scope of this emerging trend nor adequately equipped our nation to succeed in it.

        Then he continues with the following extraordinary admission:

        “Contrary to the hopeful assumptions of previous administrations, Russia and China are serious competitors that are building up the material and ideological wherewithal to contest US primacy and leadership in the 21st Century. It continues to be among the foremost national security interests of the United States to prevent the domination of the Eurasian landmass by hostile powers. The central aim of the administration’s foreign policy is to prepare our nation to confront this challenge by systematically strengthening the military, economic and political fundaments of American power.”

        ,If we pause to reflect on the meaning behind the words of Wess Mitchell, it’s pretty crude and wholly illegal in terms of the UN Charter, though Washington today seems to have forgotten that solemn document

        . Mitchell says US national security priority is to, “…prevent the domination of the Eurasian landmass by hostile powers.” He clearly means powers hostile to efforts of Washington and NATO to dominate Eurasia, ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union more than a quarter century ago.

        But, wait. Mitchell earlier cites the two dominant powers who combined, he says, are the current prime foe of US global control. Mitchell states explicitly, “Russia and China are serious competitors that are building up the material and ideological wherewithal to contest US primacy and leadership.”

        But US control of Eurasia then means US control of Russia, China and environs. Eurasia is their land space.

        The Wess Mitchell Senate declaration is a kind of obscene global rollout of the 19th Century USA Monroe Doctrine: Eurasia is ours and “hostile powers” such as China or Russia who try to interfere in their own sovereign space, become de facto “enemy.”

        Then the formulation “building up the material and ideological wherewithal…” What’s that supposed to mean as justification for Washington policy to prepare a military response?

        Both nations are energetically moving, despite repeated Western economic warfare, to build their economic infrastructure independent of NATO control. That is understandable. But Mitchell admits it is for Washington Casus Belli.

        Captain Hook …. your fabricated Narrative …serve you Fascist buddies in our Secret Society …now in control of our country….. but betray all Greeks!

        To suggest that Russia and China …do not have the sovereign right fo pursue what ever economic interests and trade they desire, and therefore makes them an enemy of Greece and the rest of the countries of the Europe and the world …speaks for itself
        But the smoking gun and indictment against you and your Ahepa pirates…is that …you are the ones …who make America’s enemies …Greece’s, and make America’s friends … Nato , EU , and Turkey …. Greece’s friends! Unfortunately… we have seen how these friends have treated Greece…and it is time …we find out how America’s enemies will treat Greece!

  5. Kalimera Michael, yes the geopolitical mess the world is in is never ending, for land, money, power, influence. Greece has always for millenia been in the middle of world power grabbers, greece did not get greedy til it was attacked over and over, and finally a revenge attack from greece that spread its territories, influence and culture..

    And yes Spiro what Right? is correct, we won’t include GD, since they have done nothing but slap a woman on TV, Greeks did get the LAZY Communist part, the industrial, militaristic, nationalistic part, that everyother communist country tried to uphold, greece wanted and still does, No taxes, No Military, No Borders, No Wealthy, Don’t want to work, etc, yet want the state to take care of them. Want to sit in cafes all day smoking drinking eating for free..

    A communist paradise, with no work, no jobs, no taxes, no nothing, Yet how are they to get funds for free Healthcare, Education, Free Cigarettes, Free Ouzo, Aaah yes let the EU pay….Greeks use to be great thinkers for mankind, now last 60yrs all they thought about was themselves…how to cheat, steal, buck the system, all parties are to blame. As are those voting….I have to pay taxes here, and there…the next prick shop owner that I buy goods from and takes my euros and gives me change, yet his machine that records each transaction is not plugged in yet he purposely pretends it is, so he doesnt pay taxes, gonna knock him out. Like I have said the Greeks of today did not build an FN thing in Greece that is historic, and to let them destroy our kids and grandkids future and just say thats the way it is..Not Gonna Happen. You dont like the church, or greece, and give up on one or both, fair enough. But I have to at least try…Moving there next year for a spell, going to vote 2019, and going to win, won’t be SYRIZA…I would vote for Michael…
