so let them get bankrupt and then get their gas

they couldnt get norway, so lets get cyprus, get it?
Let's say this is accurate and not just a conspiracy theory. Not just that the inherent flaws in the euro and the ECB are to blame.
That would imply that the governments in Europe are either collaborating, conspiring or held hostage by a criminal technocratic gang of Central planners. That the thought or appearance of sovereignty and liberty are just that, mere thoughts or appearances that are not close to reality at all.
The criminal cabal would be a small group, labeled by some as Illuminati or other such term for such secret and criminal organizations and that this organization holds all the money power over everyone else, including governments. Under the guise of Central Banking.
It would imply that what is happening in Cyprus isn't a natural consequence of malinvestment but was instead engineered to happen as it has.
What of the rest of the EU?
How far and how deep does such an organization reach?
And who stands opposed to it?
Who could stand against it?
Such a group to be able to operate would require a complacent and ignorant populace. Would it not?
Not to mention that if what you say is true, then what good is the EU governments at all?
I'm not buying into your theory exactly, I'm just musing is all. I don't know if Cyprus was targeted because of their gas reserves (which will take decades to exploit), or if it's just a coincidence. Gas reserves or not, would not the fundamental instability of the entire EMU and malinvestment in the PIGS would have led to this happening anyway with no other ulterior motives than simple cause and effect?
It is well known how I personally feel about Central Bankers, Central Planners and Statists. And I suppose it's possible that this is all just a big con and Cyprus has been targeted because of it's potential energy wealth and that it's not able to defend itself at all.
It's a pretty well established fact of history that nations that cannot defend themselves, or depend exclusively on others to defend them, end up getting shafted in time.
I see a rising totalitarian tide in Europe and elsewhere, and who is responsible for it? <Shrugs> looking in the mirror is just as valid an answer as some criminal cabal running rampant over peoples and nations.
