Greeks Threaten To Use Plan B

Peter’s Commentary:

The Greeks are pushing hard. They want a new agreement with the euro zone. The Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos threatened that they could always look somewhere else for help.

“What we want is a deal. But if there is no deal – hopefully (there will be) – and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow apart Europe, then we have the obligation to go to Plan B. Plan B is to get funding from another source,” he told Greek television show that ran in to early Tuesday. “It could the United States at best, it could be Russia, it could be China or other countries,” he said. <Reuters>

Now, it’s very unlikely that the USA will go against her allies in Europe. Thus the Greeks are threatening to go to either Russia or China for assistance. And as Russia has already said that they are open to discussing the situation with Greece, this is a threat to be taken seriously.
