Revolution Succeeds In Greece!!! Protestors Overthrow Government. New Government To Be Formed.
The Greek Revolution Has Succeeded In Forcing The Government To Step Down In The Midst Of Massive Protests Calling For The Regime of Corrupt Government And Crooked Banks To Be Replaced With Real Democracy.
Read The Rest…
That announcement came amidst violent protests, and as Tyler Durden pointed out, was nothing but a bold face lie meant to placate the masses. Soon after the announcement and the subsequent calming of the masses, the Greek Prime minister announced he would not be stepping down, instead would only be reshuffling top cabinet officials and would ask for a vote of no confidence from the corrupt parliament that is looking to put over stressed tax payers on the hook for an international loan with 30% plus interest rates to bailout crooked greedy bankers.
Needless to say, the Prime Minister survived the vote of no confidence, and the Greek Government is set to vote for and approve the IMF bailout loan under banker controlled corporate media threats that financial Armageddon will hit the world if the vote does not pass.
If you have watched the news today there is report after report of the Global markets being in a stage of economic collapse very similar to the financial meltdown of 2008.
The economic upheaval is strongly tied the massive rights and protests in Greece, Spain and in fact through out all of Europe.
However those threats do little to deter the people across Europe who feel that they have nothing left. In a Land of broken people suffering harsh austerity measures enacted to pay the tab for greedy bankers, who continue to participate in the same acts of fraud and reckless behavior that caused the Global financial meltdown in the first place, the people of Europe have had enough. Apparently so have the police and military forces.
Several news agencies out of Europe are reporting that Army and Police officers have joined the people in the riots against the banks to protest what is being perceived by European nationals as the sale of national sovereignty to foreign powers.

Greek Army threatens coup
Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, last year a prescient when he said to fear that several Southern European countries may fall prey to civil war and their democracy would be lost? Several Greek troops have now indeed threatened a military coup against the government because the Greek people, according to the union officer ANEAD feel “to foreign powers to be sold”.
Especially in Europe it is normal for the military’s political neutrality and not interfere with drafting the policy of the government. The call of the Greek officers association is therefore highly unusual, especially considering that the press spokesman for the ANEAD literally said that the army “will not tolerate violation of the Constitution, not the defense of our sovereignty should be.” That was a clear threat to the address of the current Greek government.
