Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

i dont see much bullying by Nasty Kapitalists here.

In case you had not noticed, the Troika ARE the front men for the European financial establishment and their clients are the largest wealth holders in Europe and those political leaders who represent that wealth in government. But it has been my sad observation that the last people to see the invidious nature of an unjust economic or social arrangement are those who are or who imagine they are the beneficiaries of that injustice. It has also been my observation that the majority of those who support such systems only think they are the beneficiaries and that, in reality, they are victims also.

No.

The troika are the front men of the group of states that Greece has desperately been begging for ever increasing amounts of money.

Don't like the Troika? Just fucking throw them out of the country - and stop begging for money.

It's unbelievable that you still stick with this idea that the troika is doing anything but passing money through Greece to European banks. Please, it's ridiculous. I mean, just what in heaven's name do you believe the escrow account that's part of this package is for?

I'm fighting cops on the streets in order to be able do just that: throw them out. The banksters' quislings however are, for the time being, still holding on.
