Battle for the Balkans II
I’ve recently written about the likely offer from the Kremlin, to advance as much as $5 billion dollars to Greece for the transit fees, which would come from the new Turk Stream pipeline going through their country. Now, whether or not this deal is ever tabled or accepted, it cannot “fix” Greece, and it cannot stop the default which must occur there. Nevertheless, this proposition is creating alot of brouhaha, and it darn well should! This offer (not to mention the pipeline itself) would be a real game changer, not just for Greece, but for the balance of power in much of Eastern Europe.
This pipeline is such a brilliant “run-around”, that it threatens all the work that DC has conspired to bring about in Ukraine.
After all….if this thing is constructed, then Ukraine will be by-passed, and basically become an afterthought in the energy transit wars.
