This could mean they want socialism/communism with that word. They've got them in the country and the country has toyed with it before. It's funny how neo-mercantilism ( bank industry ) spawns socialism.

Most revolutions have been worse than the govts they replace, unfortunately. We're lucky that didn't happen after our Revolution. Although today, our govt does things far worse than the monarchy of King George. Hamiltonianism paved the way for the centralization of power that has lead to these things.

Congrats on having nuthin' again but put downs ( or jokes).

To address your point, although covered up, I've been to Greece and they have a lot of socialism as well as an active Communist party who I saw actively campaigning with their red banners and flags. They nearly fell to communism after WWII and they've had socialist presidents.

But my point about democracy was in reference to this:

"Democracy is the road to socialism."- Karl Marx


Guess it was over your lack of understanding of political philosophies or persuasions whereby you need a paragraph of data to say what it means instead of using a short form proper term.

George Papandreou represents the Panhellenic Socialist Movement party. He's not the first one either.

Europe must deal with Greece or suffer, says International Monetary Fund

By Simon Duke

Last updated at 10:17 PM on 17th June 2011

Europe's political elite is ‘playing with fire’ through its failure to tackle the economic crisis engulfing Greece, the International Monetary Fund has warned.

The Washington-based watchdog predicted that a fresh round of turmoil would spread through financial markets unless European leaders shore up the stricken eurozone periphery.

In its quarterly health check on the global economy, the IMF said the US government must also stop ducking the tough decisions required to rein in its vast budget deficit.

IMF director Jose Vinals said: ‘You cannot afford to have a world economy where these important decisions are postponed because you’re really playing with fire.’

Unless these dangers are addressed head on, new ‘shocks’ could ‘reverberate across the rest of the world’, which would in turn ‘seriously impair’ the ability of banks to raise funds, according to the IMF.

The stark message to European Union leaders came as Germany and France attempted to show a united front over a second rescue deal for stricken Greece.

Chancellor Angela Merkel backed down from German demands that creditors to the Mediterranean nation should have to shoulder a ‘substantial’ share of the mooted €150bn bailout.

In an embarrassing climb-down, Merkel outlined a new plan centred on persuading bondholders to take some of the strain on a ‘voluntary’ basis. This would mean giving Greece more time to pay back its loans.

The compromise deal eased fears of an imminent debt default by Greece, which would likely have triggered a wave of panic on financial markets. The FTSE 100 reversed early losses to close 16.13 points higher at 5714.94 while Greek borrowing costs falling back from record highs. Conflict between France and Germany had jeopardised a 10bn handout from the EU and IMF, which Greece urgently needs if it is to avoid reneging on its debt.

Before the cash is disbursed, the Athens government must first pass a new package of harsh and deeply unpopular austerity cuts.

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou yesterday replaced his finance minister in a broad cabinet re-shuffle ahead of a make-or-break confidence vote tomorrow.

Should he lose, the IMF could in theory withhold their portion of the bailout cash.
But the president of the European Council yesterday on Friday he was confident a

fresh bailout deal for Greece would be hammered would.

‘This is no time for party politics, there is too much at stake,’ Herman Van Rompuy said.

Let the IMF eat cake, The Greek people are standing up and saying NO to bailouts for bankers.

This is all about the people being on the hook to payback what the International Bankers have "Loaned" their banks. Suicidal Austerity is not the answer.

Another socialist welfare state collapses right before our eyes. First it was the Soviet Union, then Yugoslavia. Then it was Zimbabwe. Now, it's Greece. If the idiot in the White House, Barack "Rage Against the Machine" Obama were to have his way, we'll be next.

Greece, whose bonds have been reduced to "CCC" (which means Crappy Crappy Crap), is now engulfed by "anarchist" riots. These are not utopian libertarians just wanting to be left alone. They're union goons, commies and assorted moochers and looters, many of them brain-dead from chronic drug abuse and others who refuse to take their meds.

The BBC describes the rioters as trade union members, old ladies, mothers, teachers, girls in midriff-revealing tops and blonde dread locks, old sailors with white stubble, communists, hooded anarchists, drug-dependent people, transvestite prostitutes and migrant beggars.

Another group is characterized as "indignatos", who seem to be ABANs (Anarchists By Another Name). They oppose "representatives of big capital", "Zionists," and "scum and police informers." Presumably they now also oppose ATM machines, grocery store scanners, pump-your-own gas stations, word processors, eBay and every other advance in technology that eliminates the minimum wage jobs for which they're qualified.

Again according to the BBC, the agenda currently is (1) the rioters attack, (2) the police fight back with stun grenades and gas, and (3) the rioters set fire to stuff and run away.

But, if it gets worse before it gets better, you better make sure you have several days of food stored somewhere in your house along with plenty of ammo.

Meh.

1) Can we still buy stuff from them if we want to?
2) Can they still buy stuff from us if they want to?
3) Is the political situation in that region stable enough that we can ignore this militarily?
4) Will our military bases in the area remain unaffected?

Other than that...sorry...having a hard time getting concerned over this.
