this all is not just a big scam – and Cyprus is the first country to “enjoy” it – it is an act of war fought with money instead of guns.
To cut a long story short, this is what´s happening right in front of our eyes – and will happen to other countries as well, if they are not as smart as Iceland was:
country gets large amounts of money “for free” joining the European Union, large credits for infrastructure and stuff, much more than a can ever pay back. (of course, no one asks what the price they have to pay for it in the end).
they get bought and lose their independence, but no one notices this as they are now happy with their new lifestyle.
after some years, they deny the citizens access to their hard earned money and claim “bankruptcy”;
therefore divide the people living there in those who want their money back and those who deny the people the lifestyle they are now used to.
people get angry and blame the ones who tell them “it´s not working any more that way”, but never tell them who really stole their money (and that this was planned long beforehand).
if people suffer enough, they offer a solution:
either go totally bankrupt or sell all your natural resources (oil/gas/whatever) to someone else (in this episode: Russia).
this is an act of war:
the country surrenders and is taken and occupied by another country now.
but all this is sold to the world as “act of generousity” and win-win-situation.
people feel relieved but do not realize they lost the most important and valuable thing they had:
their sold out their country and their natural ressources to just another tptb.
they lost their indepence once again and end up completely enslaved with no chance to get control back easily any more.
