Recipe on how to destabilize a country, make it poor & then make it request for help

"In the past you needed a military force to conquer & control a country. Today force is not necessary at all. You can destabilize a country, make it poor & then make it request for help. For the help that is given you gain control over the policies of that country & once you have control of a country's polices you have effectively colonized it. "- Dr. Mahathir Mohammad

After seeing the situation for what it is, and not for what “some” present it to be, it was simple to understand that the crises in Greece was “set up” in such a way, so that it can trap us financially and then allow “foreign interests” to come in, lend us money, make it damn hard for us to ever pay that money back and then obligate us to give up our assets in exchange for the debt. If for one minute you think that Greece does not have any assets… think again.

Why do I believe they are purposely hovering this possibility over our heads, well I don’t know if you have satellite TV and watch Greek news, but the feeling we all felt here a couple of days ago when we watched the press conference of EU and IMF officials, or the “Troika” as they are called here, was totally pathetic. 

For some it was a realization that the global banking cartel was governing this country, and not the government. They announced to us that we have to sell off (and not lease as the government lied to us later) all of our assets in the name of our national debt. What is even sadder is that the journalists interviewing this money-hungry, blood thirsty for Greek reserves consortium sat there and continued to ask them questions without feeling one ounce of shame, or distraught for everything that was said in fear that it would rattle their savoir vivre. What is this consortium? It is our lenders… the people that George Papandreou decided to bring to Greece to “save” our economy (northern Europeans, and Americans).

When the financial crises started, I remember telling people that it wasn’t about our debt. It was about foreigners getting a piece of the Greek market. From islands to the power company, to the natural gas under Crete, they have been hovering over Greece for years wanting to get a piece of the action. Some have also termed Greece as a “Mercedes” waiting to come out of the garage.

My anger is not towards them, my anger is towards all those want-to-be Greeks that pretend to be the patriots, and all those want-to-be reporters that in all reality are just paid spokesmen for the government. I am also infuriated with the government. The prime minister, in his thirst to remain in power, has signed off our future to money hungry bankers and crooks so that they in return can endorse his aspirations to gain a position on the United Nations.

He does not even have the decency to make the announcement himself. And what is more, he does not even care how the public will react. I personally do not care if the public power company is sold off, just as long as people do not lose their jobs. I also don’t care if the water company is sold, but I do care if they sell off strategic land, and state owned banks, and along with me so does 99.9 percent of the population. Why? Let’s suppose a Turkish investor came in and decided to buy the state-owned agricultural bank… where the majority of Greek farmers have their wealth and assets… what would happen then Mr. Papandreou? Or do you know this already? Turkey would own most of the property in Greece! Try to digest that! Heaven help us… if such a development happened.

Aren’t they a bit concerned that these interests purposely drove up our lending so that they can come in and take over our country? And don't get me wrong, I am not a paranoid fanatic nationalist, I am just a simple no one that is starting to feel very unsafe in her own country and very concerned that in several years it won’t be the country she knows.

They said 50 billion euros. That is a lot of dough for a little country that still doesn’t even have a land zoning infrastructure. No… no… its not the land they want…, although in the case of Turkey I am not all that sure especially in the area of Thrace, I believe they want our vast reserves and they want them at the best available price!  And the reason I say this is because it is going to be impossible to sell off so many assets in a four year period. Also, at this time Greece’s credit ratings are not that great, so the value of our assets will not be presented as they should… they will be lowered because of our debts. Therefore we will be losing even more money… All the better for the money hungry vultures who know this and have staged all this so they can get a piece of the action at a great price.

Why are they doing this to us? Why did our Yes Man Prime Minister bring us to this boiling point? Was this all planned? Did he on purpose work with these vultures to dismantle our nation? What will happen if the people react so negatively to this and public unrest gets out of control, will this mean that people here lose all their money, assets and what have you? Will the country go bankrupt?

Well when an individual or a company declares bankruptcy, I'm assuming their assets (if any) get frozen and so do their bank accounts and what not. Then if there is still value in what they owe (above basic life necessities) it is sold and funds recovered are given to creditors to partially cover for the loss. And a bankrupt individual/company gets a bad record on their credit rating for seven years so all future creditors know that this person had declared bankruptcy in the past. Individual/company’s debts are then nullified so they can start over from zero. I've never been bankrupt (yet) so this may not be correct, but I think it's fairly accurate.

But what happens when a country goes bankrupt? I mean can a richer country conquer a poorer one by just pulling some financial crap on them and forcing them to bankruptcy“? IT very well might be true. In medieval times one kingdom would march against another to win that land and name it their own, and let’s not forget the big fish eating the small fish theory. So in today’s cruel world, war is not about guns… it’s about money so one country can conquer the other by bankrupting it instead of fighting it right? I think it can, and I believe they are doing this in my country.  

Now are you getting the picture?

They are purposely running us to the ground so that we can hand over our reserves and natural wealth to them. Our leaders are traders. If they are knowingly doing this, then they should be brought to trial. This is the biggest sell out of the century. 

Why am I so convinced that they are doing this on purpose? The answer my friends is simple. We are a very rich nation. We have vast amounts of gold, uranium, oil and natural gas that until now have never been tapped in. Of course we are not the only ones that know this. The West knows this too… and they want to come into our country and take over, as they have done in many other nations across the world. They go in… stage a war, or whatever, in this case they staged an economic crises. Then they teach this country how to spend money it does not have and graciously give it to them so that they can sell their submarines, their tanks and whatever, and then when the debt gets to the boiling point they decide to go in once again and lend this country even more money to pay off the interest of the debt. By now… the debt is so tremendous that they tell this country that they would be willing to write off some of the debt, but in return this country would have to sell off its assets.

I don’t think I need to spell out which countries have done this… but one country point’s Uncle Sam at us and the other a Nazi sign. I don’t think the present government can “break eggs” with these larger countries and make use of our natural wealth, because until now, they have been bowing their heads in a Yes Man position. I think the only leader that I know of, that tried to go against the system, was the former Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and we all know what happened to him –read related story).

How certain am I about Greece’s natural wealth? In February 1998, reports flooded the news that a large concentration of radon was discovered in a market area of Thesprotia. What is radon? Radon is a radioactive element and for those who know, an indication of the existence of uranium. Right away scientists began exploring the possibilities and discovered vast amounts in the areas of the Panagaio Mountain, Kavala, and Olympiada in Halkidiki. That is when Skopje friendly and multi-billionaire George Sorros moved in with his TVX Gold Mining Company and began exploiting the subsoil there for gold and uranium.

This development inspired many geologists and scientists to begin investigating other possible deposits. And they did. In fact a confidential report was accidently published by the "Investor" newspaper on 23/2/96 –otherwise known in Greece as Ependitis-, concerning the results of measurements of IGME (the Hellenic Institute of Geology and Mineral Exploration). The report said that Greece has immeasurable wealth in deposits of uranium and other rare metals, which are estimated at some 100 trillion drachmas! Yes… you heard correctly… 100 trillion! Meaning almost 270 + BILLION Euros! The survey, which was signed by seven distinguished Greek geologists/scientist refers to the uranium deposits, which they claim are valued at some 300 million tonnes. It also refers to other rare minerals such as rutile, loutesio and lanthanum, which have very specific uses in the manufacturing of missile systems, but they only gave reference to deposits in the area of Kavala. (Again northern Greece…. And more specifically Thrace!) Coincidence?

Uranium is a rare commodity and very expensive. IT is mainly used for the production of satellites and rockets.

In the same report they also note that in their esteemed opinion this might even be the largest uranium deposit in the world. How valuable is enriched uranium? Are you sitting down…? The value of enriched uranium in 1998 was valued at 20.000 a gram…. Yes you heard correctly my friends. Twenty plus years later I am sure that price is more than double. 

The same report also made reference to other minerals such as:

1.  Aluminum - Because France had reduced its production of aluminium at the time, Greece is now viewed as the largest producer of aluminium in Europe. It is the most abundant metallic element, and the third most abundant of all elements in the Earth’s crust, making up 8% of the crust by weight. Only silicon and oxygen are more plentiful.

2.  Bauxite - They also noted that our country is the largest producing European Union country of Bauxite. This mineral is used in the production of aircraft, electrical equipment, steel structures, etc.  Bauxite is the name for a mixture of similar minerals that contain hydrated aluminium oxides. These minerals are gibbsite (Al(OH)), diaspore (AlO(OH)), and boehmite (AlO(OH)). Because it is a mixture of minerals, bauxite itself is a rock, not a mineral. Bauxite is reddish-brown, white, tan, and tan-yellow. It is dull to earthy in lustre and can look like clay or soil. Bauxite forms when silica in aluminium-bearing rocks (that is, rocks with a high content of the mineral feldspar) is washed away (leached). This weathering process occurs in tropical and subtropical weathering climates.

3.  Lignite - Lignite constitutes the most abundant type of coal in Greece and the most important of the Greek lignite deposits formed in shallow lakes and marshes of closed mountain basins (such as Ptolemais, Florina, Drama in Macedonia, northern Greece and Megalopolis in Peloponnesus, southern Greece). The lignite reserves are currently estimated at 6750 Mt, excluding the 4300 Mm of ‘Phillipi’ peat in Macedonia. The Kozani-Ptolemais, Amynteo, Florina basins in Macedonia contain the largest amounts (about 64%) of the nation’s coal resources. These lignites, which are all already being exploited, have a very low calorific value and high ash and low sulphur contents. The lignite production for 1992 was over 54 Mt. the greatest centres of lignite production are in Macedonia, at the opencast mines of Ptolemais and Amynteo, and in Peloponnese, at the opencast mine of Megalopolis. The vast majority (98%) of the extracted lignite is used for electricity generation and feeds power plants which have a total capacity of 4533 MW. The lignite-based power plants account for more than 720f the total electricity generation of the country. Today, through detailed geological exploration and evaluation, efforts are being made to locate and develop other lignite deposits throughout Greece

4.  Manganese - Greece is the only country in the European Union contained in underground deposits of manganese. The main deposits are found in the county Dramas. There was no reference to its use or estimated worth. As a free element, manganese is a metal with important industrial metal alloy uses, particularly in stainless steels

5.  Nikel: Greece is the only country in the European Union with substantial deposits of nikel in the subsoil.  Nickel, iron and cobalt are the only three elements known to be ferro-magnetic and of the three, nickel is the least magnetic. When all three ferro-magnetic metals are alloyed together, an unusually strong magnet is created. This alloy conducts heat and electricity fairly well, but is not as good a conductor as pure silver or copper

6.  Magnesite: The magnesite exported by our country, covers almost 46% of total production in Western Europe. Uses include: refractory bricks, cement, etc.

7.  Chromite: Greece is the only EU country that contains significant amounts of exploitable chromite. The most important deposits are located near Mt Kozani. This mineral is mainly used to produce stainless chalyva. Chromite is an iron chromium oxide mineral and the only ore of chromium metal. It is a mineral found in ultrabaisc rocks such as peridotite. It is also found in serpentines and other metamorphic rocks derived from the alteration of ultrabasic rocks. It is a high temperature mineral often found in the lower parts of magma bodies from the fractional crystallization process

8.   Petroleum - According to research results, based on satellite maps, it is now an undisputed fact that there are rich deposits of oil in the Greek area east of the island of Thassos, in the Gulf of  Thessaloniki, in the Dodecanese and in particular in the vicinity of Imia, in Zakynthos and Florina.

9.   Natural Gas – Greece has tremendous amounts of natural gas reserves. The most of which are estimated to be in the area between Greece and Cyprus, or the island of Kastelorizo…. Where our prime minister so graciously announced to the world that the foreigners were going to come in and lend us moula to save us… Coincidence? More specifically, the moment Israel’s huge Leviathan natural gas deposit officially reared its head from the ocean last year, it became clear that the energy and geopolitical balances in the region are likely dramatically to change. And the consensus is that the development offers major economic and strategic opportunities for Greece. The shifting energy map has almost overnight broken a decades-long taboo in Greece - largely due to Turkish threats - namely, the public debate over the exploitation of the country’s oil and gas deposits. Now the debate has surfaced with a vengeance, with a loud chorus of opposition parties and scholars forcefully urging the government to declare Greece’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), the 200-mile span in which a country has sovereign rights to exploit natural resources under the international law of the sea. Public discourse is fuelled by an announcement on February 2 by a researcher at the French oil and gas industry consultants Beicip-Franlab, which advises the Cypriot government, that a natural gas deposit that may match Leviathan lies at the border between the Cypriot and Greek EEZs
