COMMENT: As discussed in FTR #788, Germany has NOT reimbursed Greece for the enormous damage wrought during World War II. Once again, that purloined wealth and the Bormann capital network that was the vehicle for the reinvestment of the Nazis’  World War II loot is center stage.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsirpas is demanding that the money be repaid.

We can appreciate that many listeners/readers feel that our focus on the remarkable and altogether deadly Bormann network is misplaced. That network and the Golden Lily wealth stolen by the Japanese from Asia are at the foundation of the global economy.

(For a greater understanding of these dynamics, we recommend, among other programs, FTR #99.)

“Greece Has ‘Moral Obligation’ to Claim German World War II Reparations: PM” [Agence France Presse]; Yahoo News; 2/8/2015.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday the country had a “moral obligation” to claim reparations from Germany for the damages wrought by the Nazis during World War II.

Greece had “a moral obligation to our people, to history, to all European peoples who fought and gave their blood against Nazism,” he said in a key address to parliament.

Berlin has already sounded a firm “no” to requests for reparations nearly 70 years after the end of the war, but Tsipras and his radical left party have vowed to tackle the issue.

“Our historical obligation is to claim the occupation loan and reparations,” the new PM said, referring to Germany’s four-year occupation of Greece and a war-time loan which the Third Reich forced the Greek central bank to give it which ruined the country financially.

Tsipras’s anti-austerity Syriza party claims Germany owes it around 162 billion euros ($183 billion) — or around half the country’s public debt, which stands at over 315 billion euros.

The issue risks aggravating already strained ties between Athens and Berlin, as Tsipras bids to reverse austerity measures imposed by its international creditors.

The Nazi regime ended up bleeding Greece dry. The loan to the Third Reich was for 476 million Reichsmarks, which was valued at $8.25 billion in a 2012 German Bundestag lower house of parliament report.

    Greece risks running out of cash by April 20, scrambles on reforms

    ATHENS/BERLIN (Reuters) – Greece risks running out of cash by April 20 unless it secures fresh aid, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday, leaving little time to convince skeptical creditors it is committed to economic reform.

    After talks with EU leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the past week, Athens said it will present a package of reforms to its euro zone partners by Monday in hope of unlocking aid and avoiding a messy default.

    “It will be done at the latest by Monday,” government spokesman Gabriel Sakellaridis told Mega TV.
