Is Mr Tsipras and the SYRIZA/left party the solution to Greece’s problems?

.
Stavros Katsoulis – Reporting from Greece
 .

The recent Euro-elections results in Greece where clear enough, for anyone to see the raw truth. The majority winner is the now well known left party that benefited from the crisis, SYRIZA, which is led by it’s young and handsome chairman Mr Alexis Tsipras. However, as we shall see, this does not by any chance lead to the conclusion that some kind of fantastic political change took place in the recent euro-elections. Nor do the raw numbers show that SYRIZA is a truly effective overall winner, when put under even the lightest of scrutinies. Additionally, if one goes on to have a deeper look at the current actual composition of this political party, then there will be no choice but to pose the important question: Is the SYRIZA party and Mr Tsipras really the solution to Greece’s problems? And if not, then what can SYRIZA do for Greece anyway?

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie

by Paul Craig Roberts

ελληνικά

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.

How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.
