That this would be funny.
But in all honesty, I can’t.
Greece’s radical new government has threatened to seek money from Russia and China to avert a financial crisis rather than yield to austerity demands from Europe, risking a dangerous political rift with the leading EU powers and a full-blown NATO crisis.
“We want a deal. But if there is no deal, and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow Europe apart, then we will have to go to Plan B,â€ said Panos Kammenos, the defence minister and head of the Independent Greeks party in the ruling coalition.
â€œWe have other ways of finding money. It could be the United States at best, it could be Russia, it could be China or other countries,â€ he told Greek television. Mr Kammenos said Greece would prefer to leave the euro if membership means submitting to what he calls a â€œEurope under German domination.â€
Athens = Bejing West!
Lots of cool old shit. Not quite as polluted. Yet.
I meant to link to this the other day when I wrote about the Grexit, but Cats was not up at the time.
NickM @ Counting Cats has an idea that is smarter, but just as dangerous as Syriza’s.
