British Queen Ordered Schaeuble’s Greek Crackdown; Here are Her Next Orders for Obama | LaRouche Irish Brigade
It was Queen Elizabeth II personally, who ordered German Finance Minister Schaeuble’s virtual murder of the nation of Greece in Eurozone debt-summit negotiations over July 12-13.
The Greek debt negotiations had been proceeding in June. Germany’s demands against Greece were much more moderate at that time, according to an AP wire of today carried in the New York Times. But then, those negotiations were adjourned on June 26, to await the results of the Greek referendum which was held on July 5. (In that referendum, Greeks overwhelmingly rejected the austerity demands of Germany and the Eurozone countries.)
Now during just the same period the negotiations were interrupted, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth made a rare state visit to Germany over June 23-25, and met there with Chancellor Angela Merkel, among others. It is not known at this time whether she also met with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble. But on June 25, the last day of the Queen’s visit, Chancellor Merkel complained that Greek negotiations had “lost ground,” and Schaeuble warned that the sides were moving apart.
Then, last Saturday, July 11, on the eve of the summit which resumed the broken-off negotiations, Schaeuble and the German delegation showed up with new demands, the “toughest ever,” which even their allies said “came out of the blue,” AP reports. One summit participant “said that the extra demands were immediately perceived as provocative.” Schaeuble had received and carried out the Queen’s orders. He even demanded that Greece be thrown out of the eurozone. Although Greece was not thrown out at that time, the violations of sovereignty and genocidal conditions were so brutal that they amounted to Greece’s murder.
“This makes it very clear,” Lyndon LaRouche said today. “Schaeuble is barking for the Queen.”
Yet Schaeuble was still insisting on a Greek exit from the Euro today, even after Greece had signed on to to his diktat. “And he’s going to get the exit he wants,” said LaRouche.
