The armed forces in Germany are examining the theoretical scenario of other EU members leaving the Union on Brexit standards, according to info-war.gr, based on a report by Spiegel. This is the one of six scenarios, which, according to German army officials, could cause a geopolitical imbalance for the next years up to 2040.
These six scenarios will determine the German military budget and which specific weapons Germany will buy the next years. Two scenarios refer to the probability of returning to some form of "state capitalism" and the termination of globalization.
The revelation shows that the elites are deeply concerned that they cannot control things completely according to their planning, especially after Brexit. It is obvious that the German political and economic establishment has more reasons to worry about such scenarios because the current architecture of the EU offers significant advantages for it to dominate in Europe.
Thanks to the EU and eurozone mechanisms, Germany managed to save its banks after the 2007-08 big crisis and to achieve huge surplus, which is translated to deficits for the rest of the eurozone members.
So actually, it should not surprise anyone that Germany and the German army prepare for the worst.
Recall also that, as mentioned early this year, things are looking bad in Europe and Germany prepares for the worst: a probable sudden death of the euro currency.
Seven years of failed neoliberal policies have destroyed the Greek economy, yet in the midst of a big refugee crisis, terrorist attacks, right-wing extremes rising in almost every European country, and the monster of Deutsche Bank threatening with another financial disaster, two things remain unchanged: IMF and Schäuble's sadistic behavior against Greece, and, Greek persistence on keeping the country in a currency which may collapse any moment.
The German financial establishment, of course, will not play with fire like Schäuble does, nor will give a hand to help Greece in case of a European financial Armageddon.
We have repeatedly supported that Germany has already a plan B to return to national currency in case that things will take an uncontrolled route in eurozone. Further information justifies this estimation, as recently the country decided to accelerate the repatriation of its gold reserves.
As described previously, in reality, Berlin does not want to destroy eurozone because the euro-currency is the tool to impose the Greek model to all the debt colonies. But that doesn't mean it can prevent a disaster which might lead to an ugly ending of this currency. It is almost certain that the Germans and others have ready plans to return to the national currency.
