THREAT OF COLOR REVOLUTION LOOMS OVER GREECE

With the recent victory of Syriza in Greece –a country crushed by austerity policies, imposed by the European Central Bank, the IMF, and corrupt oligarchs– the opponents of austerity the world over have been rejoicing.
An overwhelming majority of the Greek people backed the winners and showed their hope that this victory will herald a real shift in direction, and not a simple exchange of an oligarch and his party for another with similar projections.
For those watching the developments from afar, the hope is that the spark in Greece will light the brushfire across Europe and the rest of the world that says “No!” to austerity for the people, that results in cuts in social spending and international banker domination of national economies.
This is the scenario presented by international analyst Brandon Turbeville who asks the question: “Is Soros preparing a color revolution for Greece?” in an essay published by digital magazine “Activist Post” on February 10th.
Yet –the analyst believes– while the signs coming out of Greece may seem positive at first, there is an ominous cloud approaching: the cloud of George Soros and his color revolution apparatus.
If Syriza is truly as anti-austerity, anti-banker, and anti-troika as its rhetoric and even its first actions seem to indicate, then the Greek oligarchs, international bankers, corporate boards, and secret societies will undoubtedly respond as soon as they are able to mount a calculated strategy against the project of the Greek government.
Billionaire currency speculator George Soros and his color revolution networks may just be the response these oligarchs are ready to launch.
In January 2014, Soros offered financial support to Greece and began founding and opening his “Solidarity Centers” using philanthropy and economic relief for those worst-hit by the country’s economic crisis as justification for the opening of the centers.
A growing number of Greeks affected by the economic crisis of the country go to these centers to receive legal advice and health care from various NGOs which offer this aid.
Soros has bought some watery-eyed loyalty with his donations but, considering his track record, international analysts wonder whether or not Soros’ Solidarity Centers’ grand openings were for the purposes of misdirecting the growing Greek discontent with austerity policies or if it was more in anticipation of a Syriza victory in the coming elections.
Turbeville notes that these “Solidarity Centers” are also “a hub for NGOs,” a necessary part of any color revolution. These “centers” are called to act as coordination headquarters for the “pro-democracy” and “pro-civil-society” NGOs that currency speculator Soros finances in many parts of Europe and even the US.
If Syriza continues its stand against the power of the EU Central Bank, the IMF, World Bank and the Atlanticist Anglo-American network, then it will inevitably find itself in the crosshairs of these institutions and organizations.
While outside pressure may be applied at first, the next step will be to unleash the force of the people against the elected government in much the same fashion as the Eastern European color revolutions of the past.
If all else fails, there is the threat of violent destabilization which would not, unfortunately, be the first violent destabilization that would take place in Greece as a result of NATO agents operating inside the country.
The question then remains: will Syriza remain firm in its populist economic platform or will it sell out the Greek people like every government and ruling party before it? If it does remain firm, the question will then be what it will have to face in the coming months.
Come what may –concludes Turbeville– in Greece “the places are already being set and the knives are already being sharpened by the color revolution apparatus. History has clearly shown that those who control it are willing to stab their target in the front as well as the back, and Greek leader Alexis Tsipras had better start watching his back.”
