Seems like a hollow victory if Yanis was forced to fall on his own sword. Apparently Syriza is not prepared to go it alone. Too bad.July 6, 2015 at 10:51 am #22175khioriParticipant
The real victory will be how the rest of the EU peoples (not leaders) view their situation after watching all of this unfold.July 6, 2015 at 10:55 am #22176V. ArnoldParticipant
Ilargi, this is one of your absofuckinglutely best ever threads. Hammer to nail; or splitting maul to firewood may be closer!
I’d like to think of this as a beginning, which I think it is.
The sheer integrity of Tsipras and Varoufakis is just stunning; long time since the world has been witness to brilliance in governance…July 6, 2015 at 11:22 am #22178VisionHawkParticipant
Absolutely AMEN !!!
Men of integrity are standing…..shall we all get to our feet?July 6, 2015 at 11:29 am #22179V. ArnoldParticipant

Already have, yes.

Interesting. Do you think he’s really off to do deeper negotiations with Russia and the BRICS?July 6, 2015 at 11:51 am #22181misanthropeParticipant
Thank you Raúl Ilargi Meijer ,
I never write any one but you actually brought tears to the eyes of this old misanthrope cynic; I didn’t think I had any left, felt a lot better when I gave up hope, must be that dam empathy.
Thanks again to you and Yanis …..Raze a glass to the real men!July 6, 2015 at 12:27 pm #22187Carbon waste life formParticipant
maybe Yanis Varoufakis is needed elsewhere as Dr. Diablo says. Anyway, the sheer class of the man is evident. He’s quit while he is ahead so as to hand over to others because dealing with the ninnies at the EU and ECB will be more fruitful without him now that they have egg on their faces. He’s a team player, a star player who will pass the ball.
I’m a bit surprised the markets weren’t more temperamental this morning.July 6, 2015 at 12:37 pm #22188Raúl Ilargi MeijerKeymaster
From what I gather, see AEP and Helena Smith in today’s Debt Rattle, there has been friction about parallel currencies and what Yanis told AEP earlier this week about that.July 6, 2015 at 1:45 pm #22189hughoParticipant
Great Job Raul for the past few days. Here in outer Wyoming we were really whooping it up in the Greek’s epic battle against the Euromonsters. We also whooped it up during the Arab Spring and when Mubarak bit the dust and you know how that all worked out. We can only hope that Greece continues to generate real leadership . I am envious of their leaders especially when viewing the pond scum that passes for leadership and political candidates here in the ailing, failing empire.July 6, 2015 at 2:33 pm #22191John DayParticipant
Hero Archetypes: Varoufakis and Tsipras.
Tyrant Archetypes: the rest.
Heroes are quick and unpredictable to tyrants, aren’t they?

Carbon – “I’m a bit surprised the markets weren’t more temperamental this morning.” The market is fully aware that if things start to turn, the Plunge Protection Team will be there to correct the “free market” with all its might, to steer the free market to where it could, should, would, ought to be.July 7, 2015 at 6:04 am #22198RaleighParticipant
“Back in June 2012, the ECB, whose head was the recently crowned Mario Draghi who had less than a decade ago worked at none other than Goldman Sachs, was sued by Bloomberg’s legendary Mark Pittman under Freedom of Information rules demanding access to two internal papers drafted for the central bank’s six-member Executive Board. They show how Greece used swaps to hide its borrowings… […]
Because something tells us the reason why Mario Draghi personally blocked Bloomberg’s FOIA into the circumstances surrounding Goldman’s structuring, and hiding, of Greek debt that allowed not only Goldman to receive a substantial fee on the transaction, but permitted Greece to enter the Eurozone when it should never have been allowed there in the first place, is that the person who oversaw and personally endorsed the perpetuation of the Greek lie is none other than Goldman’s Vice Chairman and Managing Director at Goldman Sachs International from 2002 to 2005. The man who is also now in charge of the ECB.
