What has happened since is the Greek banks have been closed for over two weeks. The Greek economy is in free fall. An agreement to agree has been announced. Before a final agreement can be negotiated many hurdles have to be passed such as implementation by the Greek Parliament of policies that Tsipras and his communists said should never be accepted. Also the Germans must accept the terms of the agreement because it requires the Germans to give the Greeks even more money; something many Germans have said should not be done so the Greeks can continue to live above their means on German money.
For the Greek people, any answer is bad. The proposed terms of the new deal are far more detrimental to Greece than were the terms of the deal Tsipras refused before the special election. In addition, the Greek government has lost total credibility such that the Greeks must pledge $50 billion plus of collateral for any deal to go through. An honest assessment would be the Greek government has no ability of raising this capital.
Tsipras has placed the nation of Greece in a far worse position than it was last January. No one has any idea when the banks will be able to open and when they do how much the money an individual or a business has in the bank will be worth. No one has any idea how much further the Greek economy will collapse. No one has any idea how long the Greece will remain a part of the Euro. The only thing that is clear is that Tsipras, with his communistic ideas, has put the Greek people in a far worst position than they were.
As bad as this is, it mostly affects Greece with perhaps some regional fallout and perhaps a ripple outside of Europe. On the other hand, the other young Marxist, Obama, has finally coerced the sworn enemy of the United States, Israel, all Christians, and free people everywhere, to sign a deal. It took a lot of giving and begging on the part of Obama and Kerry, but they finally gave so much Iran said yes. The problem with this deal is that it truly has international implications. It has devastating implications for Israel and all Middle Eastern countries. It all but assures Iran that they will have nuclear weapons with long range delivery; all for the sake of Obama’s Marxist ideology and his Jihadist sympathies.
Knowledgeable people had these comments on this Chamberlain like negotiating:
Iranian negotiators seem pleased with themselves over the Iran nuclear deal announced Tuesday, but they had little to do with their success, former CIA Director James Woolsey said.
"It wasn't really any particular skill on their part. We were negotiating against ourselves and we defeated ourselves," Woolsey concluded.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday after a nuclear deal with Iran that Israel was not bound by it and signaled he remained ready to order military action.
Netanyahu's harsh criticism of the agreement came after he warned for months that the deal being negotiated would not prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
While analysts say unilateral military action by Israel seems unlikely for now, Netanyahu and other officials have kept the option on the table.
The nuclear proliferation agreement struck between Iran and Western powers “is a deal that is going to make Neville Chamberlain’s Munich Pact with Hitler seem trivial by comparison,” actor, author and former White House speechwriter Ben Stein said Monday.
Stein went to say, “This is a deal which basically paves the way for Iran to become a nuclear power that can threaten the whole rest of the world with ballistic missiles that has already pledged to annihilate Israel that has pledged, within its ability to do so, to annihilate the U.S. The idea that we are signing a pact with a country which is proclaiming death to Israel, death to the U.S., we’re signing a pact that basically allows them to get nuclear weapons and to get the means to delivery is simply astonishing.”
As devastating as is the situation for Greece that was orchestrated by Tsipras, the deal that was put together by his comrade, Obama has even wider and more devastating implications for the world. It appears Obama’s goal was to not let Tsipras be the bigger fool; Obama surely succeeded.
