Why on earth would you be on the side of Russia in any bailout deal having to do with Cyprus? They aren't the good guys here, they are simply looking to take advantage of the idiocy of voters in Cyprus who have elected bad governments for a very long time. The public sector in Cyprus is out of control, yet the people (through their elected governments) do not want to cut spending.
Europe has a voter problem (and that includes little Cyprus). These governments didn't get into power by themselves. People are voting for politicians and parties that run up huge debts. Creditors simply enable and then take advantage of them. Neither "banksters", globalists, Jews, or any other conspiratorial evil are the problem. The people are the problem. To the extent that Germany takes advantage of any of this issues is only possible because Europeans keep voting for governments that spend far more than they have.
Okay never mind it was one of the empire
OH well LOL!
There are times when rioting in the streets is justified.
Yes, the withholding scheme allowed the government to bleed dry its nascent sharecroppers.
President BO inadvertently caused people to focus on that little trick when he allowed the payroll withholding to go up - it could prove to be his Waterloo.
Back in 98 when Lehrman and Bears Sterns exploded with a few banks right behind them till the camoflauge makers at the FED came in to prop them up with our money, I was certain there was going to be a bank holiday and pulled some cash out of the bank. I think I was a few years early and a few K too light on my ideas. Heading out tomorrow early to get my hands on what is left before it is gone too. Turn it around into hard assets as quick as I can too. The clock is ticking down to midnight on REV2...tick tick tick.
Like the rifle that’s hung over the mantel in Act I, the idea is in play now.
Sometime before the final curtain that rifle will be fired.
The piece of shit transvestite LaGarde and the IMF and the New World Order scum bag bankers got a set back.
Next time they won’t give the citizenry a chance to mobilize.
Evolution of Federal Income Tax Withholding - The Machinery of Institutional Change

Cyprus is divided between two NATO countries- so which NATO country- Greece or Turkey- is gonna build a Russian navy base?
What would NATO do about it?
Because I’m against Germany’s designs on smaller European countries?
the haircut being rejected, now the German barber will keep his money and not make additional loans to subsidize the Cypriots
Actually Cyprus is an independent country and NOT a part of NATO.
If there were two historic empires I could’ve visited, it would’ve been the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. With the Russians, during the reign of Peter the Great, and with the Ottomans, Suleiman the Magnificent. The zenith of both empires, and I have no doubt it would’ve been fascinating.
In regards to Cyprus, I think they’re gambling that Russia will offer them a better deal but as with any deal, the devil’s in the details. I’d be wary of making a deal with the Russians - or the Turks for that matter - as any deal you strike with both of them would benefit them enormously, and you......not so much.
Most likely, the Cypriots will be back in front of the EU in a week, begging bowl in hand, especially once Bank of Cyprus and Laika Bank are declared insolvent.
That should happen about 20 minutes after they open.
It will be interesting to see what Russia offers, especially once they think Assad is toast, and their base at Tartus, is in jeopardy.
That would be highly interesting.
If the Cypriots miscalculated on this, and the Russians don’t step up - for whatever reason - I see them frantically flying to Brussels, and hoping that the deal is still on the table.
I doubt they or the rest of the NATO alliance would countenance a Russian base on a NATO member's soil
There is no strategic sense at all to that for anyone
NATO membership is looking pretty useful to Turkey about now, given the deterioration of Syria and Iran's future ICBMs
Now, a deal between Cyprus and Russia for the sale ...... err, “development” .... of Cyprus’ supposed offshore natural gas fields - is potential Russian domination of the Central Med by another means
yeah they are independent of Turkey and Greece- right
But very few countries actually recognize Turkish claims on the island. I would be surprised if NATO would, seeing as how Greece, in particular wouldn’t care for it.
Greece, yes. And nobody recognizes “North Cyprus”, other than the Turks.
