from The Daily Bell:
Southern Europe lies prostrate before the German imperium … Cyprus is only the first victim of a one-size-must-fit-all policy that is made in Berlin … ‘Cyprus is capitulating not out of euro-patriotism, but out of fear; this is not European “solidarity”, but coercion.’ … Othello was sent there from Venice to repel the Turks, though luckily they all got blown away in a tempest. Since then, Russia, Britain, Greece and, always, Turkey, have taken an interest. Even today, Britain has an important listening post for the Middle East there, 60,000 expatriates, 3,500 troops in our sovereign bases and a continuing role as a guarantor power. Cypriots still drive on the left. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: Germany is the worst country, always making trouble.
Free-Market Analysis: We’ve written about this dominant social theme before but because of this article we can’t resist returning to it. Everything we wrote about it is right here in black and white.
We should also note that while this article was written a week ago when Cyprus was just breaking out, even in the past few days there have been more articles of this sort featured in the mainstream media, especially in Britain. The exuberant Daily Mail is a special culprit; there have been in the recent past, as well, comparisons of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Hitler.
