Plutocrats' puppets continue their theatrical performance over the Greek ruins that have created. Suddenly, the IMF decided to play the role of the "good guy". The Fund came with a new proposal in the supposed negotiations quite "radical" for its "principles". As the Wall Street Journal reported : “The IMF wants eurozone countries to accept long delays in the repayment of Greece’s bailout loans, which would fall due in the period from 2040 to 2080 under the proposal, according to officials familiar with the talks. The IMF is also pressing for Greece’s interest rate on its eurozone loans to be fixed for 30 to 40 years at its current average level of 1.5%, with all interest payments postponed until loans start falling due.” Of course, the IMF knew from the start that neither Berlin nor Brussels would be possible to accept such a deal.
Indeed, very quickly, the German Minister of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, who appears to have been taken the role of the "bad guy" permanently, rushed to reject the proposal as he “has repeatedly argued that he will not ask the German Parliament for changes to the bailout program that was agree upon after much effort and deliberation last summer.” A very bad performance this time. He should wait for a while in order to put some agony in the theatrical play. It was too obvious.
Little later, through Handelsblatt, he appeared to be "willing to ease up on Greek debts, but not until after the 2017 general elections." These are the routine games by Schäuble and many European and IMF officials, back and forth, without really any substance, but only for the purpose to disorientate. Besides, the ease of the debt is the last thing that bothers them.
The previous theatrical play by the Brussels bureaufascists, the Berlin directorate and the IMF economic hitmen, was played on the occasion of Greece's debt restructure. Again, this is not the key issue, they do not care about it. They just using it to give something to Tsipras in order to justify the complete destruction of the Greek economy, through the measures they impose.
The contrived disagreements and artificial conflicts among the plutocrats' representatives is not a new tactic of disorientation. As mentioned in previous article already since 2012, the contrived disagreements between the troika representatives are “used to give the impression that the troika representatives often take decisions independently due to their knowledge and experience, and that they express freely their disagreements, and also, that there is no group of specific interests at least in a European level that promotes specific policies by guiding them. The disagreements have passed currently at a higher level between the European creditors and IMF, in order to justify the supposed different approaches of the creditors.”
The timing is quite convenient for the puppets as the new government of the ... mutated Left is very useful in absorbing the public anger. There are no alternatives in the current opposition which mostly represents the old political establishment that ruined Greece. This establishment of course is absolutely aligned with the creditors, as it is fanatically attached to the "euro or death" doctrine.
Thus, Schäuble continues to play the role of the "bad guy", IMF is changing positions rapidly, various "proposals" appear frequently in the supposed "negotiations", only for the purpose of giving false hopes to the Greek citizens that there is a real conflict somewhere between the creditors and that something is going to change. There is no such a thing in reality because we've already pointed many times that the details of the Greek experiment have been already determined and that the only target for the puppets is to complete it in order to be transfered to the rest of the eurozone. We can see already the cruel anti-labor measures that the "Socialist" and ally of Tsipras, François Hollande, is trying to pass in France, which is literally in flames due to people's anger. Therefore, in essence we have already memorandum conditions not only for the eurozone periphery, but also for its hard core.
Meanwhile, the reality is what the Greek people experience. Just look what happened since 2012. With or without Tsipras, through willing MPs or not, through financial coups and closed banks, through loyal to the big interests officials in key positions and governments of technocrats, the plutocrats' puppets are passing all the measures they want. Yet, they continue their theatrical plays for the Greek public which, unfortunately, even inside this landscape of absolute destruction, insists to believe on the illusion that there is still hope inside euro.
If you want to see the real picture behind the scene, all you have to do is to remember that IMF's Poul Thomsen and Delia Velculescu, head of the IMF mission to Greece, have been caught thinking the possibility of the IMF to stage a Draghi-type “credit event” that could force Greece to the edge of bankruptcy, using the pretext of the Brexit referendum, according to recent WikiLeaks revelations.
Which proves that the neoliberal taliban are thinking the same way, have the same "ideology", the same targets and serve the same bosses, whether are located in Brussels, Berlin or Washington.
