by system failure
Apart from the most obvious explanation that the latest bombing in the center of Athens outside the Bank of Greece, is just a reaction from a radical-left guerrilla group against government, there are other scenarios which involve provocative operations by the government itself. Tactics of fear and disorientation by the system in times of such a hard economic war like currently in Greece, should be expected more and more often.
A common practice from the "godfathers of night" is to sell protection to bars and nightclubs from potential rival interests against them. Of course, this is a pure blackmail since they are the same ones who often send paid bouncers to cause significant damages in those businesses in case that their owners refuse "protection".
It seems that the Greek government currently follows a similar logic to blackmail citizens as we approaching euro-elections. After the Baltakos scandal (http://www.enetenglish.gr/?i=news.en.politics&id=1839), the global neoliberal dictatorship rushed to support Samaras administration through the announcement that Greece is returning to markets and the Angela Merkel's visit to Athens on Friday, as a reward to government officials who adopt every part of the IMF neoliberal agenda. It's an attempt to reverse the negative climate against government.
As long as the parties who serve the system and especially the neoliberal Right party of Samaras, Nea Dimokratia, are losing power with the leftist main opposition party SYRIZA in the first place, according to recent polls, the systemic establishment is expected to proceed more often is such provocation operations to "send the message" to citizens that in case that they will dare to vote against the system, chaos and destruction will dominate Greece after the elections.
The systemic establishment will exploit the fear that its mainstream media are distributing to the people since the beginning of the crisis. The message is simple: vote for the system to return to markets, security, investments or else you will get absolute destruction. Of course, what we've seen in Greece so far is in reality the absolute destruction, with poverty, unemployment, inequality, public debt breaking every previous record. The difference is that it's been done systematically by the troika economic murderers.
In case that people will obey and vote for the system in the oncoming elections, they will be rewarded with a fake "stability". Probably Xiros (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/01/breaking-former-member-of-armed.html) will return to his cage and the authorities will sell another "success story" to the public, entitled "a successful war against terrorism". This is something which will allow the neoliberal government to complete the experiment in Greece and deliver it to the rest of the eurozone, always under the supervision of Angela Merkel.
But what people should understand is that the real power is in their hands. Besides, all these tactics reveal that the systemic establishment is in panic and uses every available mean to stay in power. People in Greece and Europe should send the message in the oncoming euro-elections that they are determined to fight against the will of the neoliberal dictatorship to expand the experiment across the Europe. That they are determined to put an end for good. The stronger the message, the more secure the win.
