I do regret choosing EU as the extension of this site at the time; the European Union has proven to be a mere mirage. The abbreviation should actually be P.U. or even F.U…

On the 9th of February I wrote that, if Tsipras is authentic, if he is the real deal, he will resign as soon as he can no longer walk the talk
In my view, that’s exactly what he’s doing now; he’s telling the Greek people: “If you say NO to the proposals of the predators… uhh, creditors, you put us in the driver’s seat to negotiate a better deal. However, if you say YES… I shall respect that, but I shall no longer be the one holding the helm!”

And if Tsipras resigns, we shall probably see a rerun of the movie “1933-1945”. Because the only alternative left for the Greeks is Golden Dawn – just like the German people put their hopes on the fascist party less than a century ago, when they didn’t want to pay “the bill” of World War I (although even then the sum had already been brought down by their creditors to less than half its size)…
Golden Dawn – Das Vierte Reich, allso!
Never again, we were telling ourselves up until now? Woooohaaaaaa!

The “Union” – very small-town EU! – is now exercising emotional blackmail, by telling the Greeks: “If you say NO, it’s Grexit!”
In other words: Pay Up, or Fuck U! For, the “collateral damage” of a YES has probably been one of their main objectives from the start: Getting rid of the “lose missiles” Tsipras and Varoufakis…
“No, the fascists of Golden Dawn, that’s more like it; now, that’s our kind of people!”
Indeed, history has proven more than once that real leaders are only reluctantly appreciated in times of war. In times of peace (let’s be honest, that has been one of the Union’s big merits!) their hands-on style is often misunderstood as mere egotism.

But, if any people in Europe do have the pride and the self-esteem – as well as the balls – to say NO, I believe, the Greek people do. I would be less confident I’m afraid if the Portuguese “tomates” would be put to the test next Sunday.

But, hey, there’s still time…
I shan’t be at all surprised if common (market) sense kicks in at the last minute or at the last leap second today – maybe, it has already emerged while I was writing down these words.
