Q: What's a EuroColony? A: "Greece" Is The Word

Greece was conquered this week without firing a shot, by a coalition of powers led by Germany.

The last time it happened, Italians and Germans tore down the Peloponnese and took Athens in the spring of 1941.

It happened again most recently when the Germans, under the figleaf of the European Union, caused Greece to lose its vote as a sovereign member of the Union as one of its prices for bailing them out for their profligate ways of spending.

Oh, sure, it's peaceful, all right. As peaceful as you can ask, this time.

But it's still conquest, subjugation, and foreign imposed rule any way you slice it.

If European moneymen are unhappy with the way Greece handles its national and international debt over the course of the coming weeks, they can take the country over and strip its parliament of its authority over its own budget. Greece then becomes, not a 'member nation' but a subjugated peoples controlled by a foreign power.

The term for this is colonialism, ladies and germs, and the Europeans, after some sixty years, appear to be back in business.

Except this time, it's EUROPEANS who are getting colonized.

I'm not a big fan of modern Greece, but hey, this is just the first step down the road to perdition.

Get out while you can, Ellas.

IF you can.

IF.

ADDENDUM

A friend of mine comments thusly:

"Once all the Germans were warlike and mean
But that couldn't happen again
We taught them a lesson in 1918
And they've hardly bothered us since then"


-- Professor Tom Lehrer, 1962
