European culture began with the rise of ancient Greece, and now the much fabled country has a 50/50 chance of leaving the euro, George Soros told Bloomberg. 

Greece’s economy, which has been an ongoing tragedy, seems to be going right to Hades. Legendary investor George Soros, who successfully predicted the British pound’s exit from European exchange rate mechanism in 1992, says Greece is a lose-lose game; “the best that can happen is actually muddling through, ” said the 84 year old Soros, and added, “Greece is a long-festering problem that was mishandled from the beginning by all parties.”

Tsipras’ Syriza government is not getting along well at all with the European Central Bank, the IMF and the European Commission, and talks seem to be breaking down. Greece will run out of cash in two weeks, and while it is possible to kick the can down the road, there is simply no surplus to work with; “Greece is going down the drain, ” Soros said. The government has stated it will announce reforms, but these do not need to be accepted by Europe. Meanwhile, it is looking for a four month extension, but the eurozone is running out of patience.

    Brzezinski, warns of consequences of the Greek crisis. Franco-German empire playing economic games threating the stability of West and Eurasia:

    Clinton deregulated banks. Now sorry. Lewinsky scandal distracted him. Wasn’t thinking. Didn’t realize end game. Misery foisted on the innocent. He, of course, unscathed. He didn’t lose his savings, house, job, pension, position as a captain of the world, life. His funders gained. But, they could not elect him. The voters that put him on his high horse suffered material, physical and psychological losses.

    Greece’s impossible bailout designed by a finance captain brought down by the stranglehold of a third world born chamber maid. President of France is having trousers trouble.

    Debt unsustainable. Greece must reform its bureaucracy. World must stop Franco-German capital blockade against Greece now before it is too late!
