Alexis Tsipras talks MAD on Channel 4 News
Above is an interview with Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras given on tonight’s Channel 4 News. In it, Greece’s very own Che Guevera manqué insists that the German axis won’t propel brave little Greece out of the eurozone because to do so would be to bring down Armageddon not only on Greece but on all of Europe. Indeed, Tsipras draws an analogy with the Cold War ideology of Mutually Assured Destruction, in which the USA and Soviet Union despite having the capability to blow each other to smithereens several times over knew that neither would let their confrontations descend to such a level that they would actually start dropping nuclear bombs on Moscow or Los Angeles.
