Through a letter on July 10, 2015, to Tina Flournoy, who has been chief of staff of Bill Clinton, John Podesta asked for the intervention of Bill Clinton, in order to persuade the Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, sign a deal with Greece's creditors. It seems that the response was positive, but Clinton wanted some more information, and his first question was if the Americans should exercise pressure on Merkel too.
Tsipras finally signed a third catastrophic memorandum for Greece after retreating against the IMF mafia, the Brussels bureaufascists and the Berlin directorate.
It is not clear whether Clinton spoke to Tsipras about this matter finally. However, this short letter has a special value because it shows what this blog supports all the last years: that there is a united front of all Greece's creditors, as their first priority is to complete the brutal neoliberal experiment in Greece in order to expand it elsewhere.
There may be an - obvious now - economic war, mostly between the US and Germany, probably due to some disagreements concerning some details of the transatlantic agreements, but this is only a phase after which the stronger multinationals and banks will survive in order to impose the new global Feudalism.
This means that all the tools of the neoliberal oligarchy are absolutely aligned behind the framework through which this oligarchy will prevail over people and democracy. As pointed previously, “We have seen another bad theatrical performance by the Brussels bureaufascists of the European Financial Dictatorship (EFD) and the IMF economic hitmen in the Greek drama. The representatives of the neoliberal Feudalism pretend that they have different positions concerning the unsolved puzzle of the Greek debt, while in reality, they do not care at all about "solving" it, but only to complete the neoliberal experiment in Greece to the last detail.”
This letter also reveals the fact that the Americans were feeling quite insecure concerning the Greek issue. Apparently they were trying to use every source available to make sure that Greece will stay under the Western sphere of influence. Clinton's question on whether Washington was thinking to exercise some pressure to Merkel too, is one more indication that a part of the US elite was worried about the fact that Greece might leave eurozone in case that Berlin would insist on its hard line. Then, things could become even worse in case that Greece would decide to approach the Sino-Russian bloc.
Which means that Tsipras made a very bad estimation during the negotiations. He didn't see this weakness of the neoliberal front. Instead of keeping Varoufakis, in order to bring more heat in the negotiations and make the Americans even more nervous, forcing them to exercise serious pressure on Berlin, he listened to the most moderates inside his party and finally surrendered to the neoliberal hyenas.
