I call this THE BIG TELL.
If you play Texas Hold’em, you know what big stack, small stack, tells, reading the cards and going ‘all in’ means.
We, the people, are in the BIG GAME. This is the one where you get to play for the entire stack, or nothing, depending on your skills. It’s a winner-takes-all game.
The evil Troika banks, their ghouls, Bernanke, LeGard, Draghi and Merkel the Merciless are dead set on making an example of Cyprus. This is not about the debts owed or the bankrupt banks. It’s about control, controlling the table, going ‘all in’ with a policy of scorched earth and making an example of Cyprus so the PIIGS get the message that they are next. This ‘all in’ message was a warning shot across the bows of the middle stacked plays like Spain and Italy. You are next! We plan to take your stack, your deposits, your pensions, even your livelihoods and lives, and send you to the rail. Get ready!
