A short summary of what's at stake in the global financial and geopolitical arena
What's at stake concerning Russia and China:
Putin will seek further autonomy for the Russian economy and further state control of the banking system in order to protect it by foreign financial speculative games. It seems that BRICS increasingly gaining financial independence from the Western neoliberal bloc. This will bring further panic to the Western oligarchs as may fear that a fast growing Russian economy could become a new model for other countries even from the Western sphere of influence.
It appears that the SCO formation in 2001 was another tactical win by the Sino-Russian block, against the - occupied with the war on terrorism - West, to be used against future plans by the global neoliberal dictatorship, which would probably include the dissolution of the vast Russian territory and the dangerous isolation of China by land and sea.
What's at stake concerning Greece and Europe:
Germany becomes now a key factor for the desirable federalization of the eurozone through an unprecedented "haircut" of the social state, labor rights, pensions and salaries, in the name of the fiscal discipline and competitiveness. Dijsselbloem's "suggestions" to Germany show characteristically that the power will be transferred from Berlin to Brussels and to the European economic mechanisms which already took the power from politicians through Draghi's decisions. With the biggest economy of the eurozone adopting such austerity measures, there will be no "good examples" for anyone to turn to, no excuses. The anti-austerity front will collapse and the European plutocracy will declare final victory.
In the Greek front, the battle prior to the presidential elections has started. The European neoliberal economic empire will support current government to end its term and finish the experiment, by any means.
A Leftist government, in a fully "neoliberalized" Europe which will end to serve solely plutocrats' interests, will be like a "Don Quixote" chasing windmills. Germany's entrance to the austerity and cuts, as well as the suppression of the anti-austerity front, will fully isolate such a government unless we see a fast, general rise of the Left and the anti-neoliberal forces in Europe, that could change the outcome of the class-war.
As Social-democrats in nearly every European country have been "absorbed" by the neoliberal perception carried mainly by the neoliberal European Right, there is a big political gap to be filled by political forces who could fight against plutocracy and defend majority's rights. In Greece, which was chosen to be the field of the new conditions, the Left, naturally, became a significant power, taking the first position in recent Euro-elections through the radical-Left party, SYRIZA.
For the first time in Greece a Leftist party wins an election, but the message from Spain is even more promising because Podemos was not created by small groups behind closed doors, but from people protesting out in the streets. The next big test for the Leftist parties would be to synchronize their efforts and create a solid European front capable to fight against the neoliberal catastrophe.
It seems that there are signs of resistance in Europe. Societies are politically mobilized to face the new challenges. What is left to see, is whether this would be enough for Europe to change its course, and bring back the lost values that have been sacrificed on the altar of the illusive economic indexes. A Europe that will work for the benefit of the real democracy and majority, not for the benefit of the bankers and lobbyists.
And the combination:
A second consequence for the US deep state would be the loss of Europe in the new Cold War. Except from Britons, who have traditional deep ties and common interests with the US, the rest of Europe could slip to the Sino-Russian bloc which grows rapidly in the military and economic field and increasingly gaining independence from the Western economic system, attracting other countries too.
As BRICS are in the processes to decouple economies from the Western neoliberal monetary monopoly, they could bring back the gold standard as a base for their transactions, which is much more steady than the paper money unstable financial bubbles. They are ready, because they are emerging economies with billions of potencial consumer tanks and can attract other countries too being victims of the international financial mafia, like Argentina and Greece.
