Bully Boys in Brussels Building Europrison - Nigel Farage + Athens Radio

The Greek economy - already teetering on the brink - has taken another turn for the worse. That's the verdict coming from IMF officials. Austerity inspectors visited the country to check whether it's meeting the conditions set up by international creditors. If the demands aren't fulfilled, Greece won't get a second lifeline of one hundred and thirty billion euros. And another debt-ridden Eurozone economy - Italy - is undergoing a further round of belt-tightening, as its lower house of Parliament is about to vote for more austerity measures. Nigel Farage, MEP and leader of the UK independence party, says the hands of Eurozone strugglers are tied while they are trapped within the bloc. Source

'Libyans don't trust Western crownies ruling them'

The streets of Benghazi are once again the focal point for crowds of angry Libyans - only this time they are protesting against the country's new government. For two days, tens of thousands of protesters have been demanding more transparency and honesty from the National Transitional Council. The demonstrators are infuriated by secrecy surrounding the country's decision-making and finances. The city of Benghazi was where the NATO-backed rebellion began and ultimately ended 40 years of Colonel Muamar Gaddafi's rule. Patrick Hayes, reporter for the online magazine spiked, told RT Libyan people have finally realized the NTC falls short of representing their interests. Source

US Attack on Pak Soldiers & Iran Downing Drone Explained

The US was disappointed that there was a lull in the Pakistani attacks on the Taliban. Also the US was disappointed that Iran no longer supported its presence in Iraq. The Pakistani soldiers were attacked in expectation that Pakistan would back down and also stop the flow of sophisticated weapons that have recently started up from Iran to the Taliban.
In the event the calculation backfired with the Pakistani population overwhelmingly angry at the US, eventhough their country is virtually destitute from the 10 year support it has offered the US in its war on terror. The brotherly ties between Zardari and Ahmadinejad are strengthened and explained in this video.
The US can no longer survive in Afghanistan without support from either Pakistan or Iran. Source

Kyle Bass On Rehypothecation And Other Keynesian Endgame Scenarios

Tyler Durden's picture
Submitted by Tyler Durden If readers have the sense there has been a deluge of Kyle Bass reading (and viewing) materials on Zero Hedge in the past two weeks, it is because there has been: and why not - after all, unlike all other cheap talking heads, and know-nothing pundits who merely need a suit to make an appearance on one of the TV's financial comedy channels, Kyle has been consistent in the most important thing - telling the truth. Today, he took his resurgent popularity to CNBC which always knows which way the winds blow, and told David Faber more or less everything that Zero Hedge readers know already about Europe's collapse, on why the ECB will print but only after a default, and about the inevitable global debt restructuring. There was a twist: as most regulars here know, the key topic of the past week, of December, and potentially of 2011, is the limitless "fractional Prime Broker lending" of assets-cum-liabilities (and when it comes to the realization that one's gold itself may be rehypothecated, via GLD, it is no surprise why paper gold is plunging, with the expected delayed effect of slow comprehension) in an infinite loop of daisy chained counterparty exposure, also known as rehypothecation. Which is precisely what what Bass touches on 9 minutes 30 seconds into the interview when the discussion shifts to "shortening collateral chains." Must watch for everyone who enjoys not being lied to. Source
