Brave Iceland

Commentary

In an interview with BBC on Wednesday evening, [President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar] Grimsson was verbally assaulted by the host, who looked like an attorney for Shylock and treated the President of a state like a felon. "Don't trust an Icelander," "Aren't international agreements more important than a President's will?" and "Are you happy with these results?" (downrating, loss of international credit, etc.) were the interviewer's questions and remarks. Grimsson taught the arrogant fellow a lesson, telling him, "I understand that Britain is not familiar with systems where the people are called to express its will " and that in Iceland, "not the parliament, but the nation is sovereign."

In contrast to the oligarchy, the British people continue to express their sympathy for Icelanders, at least judging from readers' comments continuing to flow in to major dailies (see below). It is probably due to this that a faction of the British establishment, represented by the Financial Times, has taken a distance from the government and openly rejected the "hard-line" approach towards Iceland. Significantly, an FT editorial today is entitled "Do Not Put Iceland in a Debtors' Prison." The FT also chose to publish a letter by Advocacy International, saying that it is "unjust" to make Iceland take sole responsibility for the "reckless behavior of private bankers and risk-takers."

Watched a couple great videos about Argentina a while back

and it is amazing what spirit those people had when the bankers created a meltdown of the economy.

I pray we are able to respond when it's time !!!

The IMF is the Federal

The IMF is the Federal Reserve of the New World Order.

Hopefully Iceland will NOT join the European Union. The EU is the new Soviet Union. The will of the people in the various nations comprising the EU is of no consequence to the globalists running the EU.

Let this be a lesson to the various nations already in the EU, or thinking about joining it. The EU is a trap. You will surrender you sovereignty. Your nation will be ruled by the dictates of the globalists running the EU.

What Napoleon, Stalin and Hitler couldn't accomplish by military force is being done through treaties. My advice: get out of the EU while you still can.

This raises the point that we

This raises the point that we should be fighting the IMF as well as the FED.

on the bright side,

on the bright side, at least the british news tries to be slightly more subtle about their obvious bias than our pundits.

Britain and the Netherland,

Britain and the Netherland, ha?

Briton should settle

Briton should settle Iceland's debt at 10 cents on the dollar. Take it or leave it.

It's not really iceland's debt

Wasn't it the choice of the British and Dutch governments to insure the deposits of their citizens with this private bank?

If that's the case, why should the taxpayers of Iceland be responsible for even 10 cents on the dollar?

Thank God some folk are

Thank God some folk are willing to stand up to the Big Bankers...

Turns out that Goldman Sachs offloaded a ton of their 'bad debt' onto the Icelandic Banks in the year preceding to the financial collapse. That must have been a stroke of good fortune...

Iceland may be the place to go

At least their leadership intends to keep Iceland a free and sovereign country. OUR leadership for the last 30+ years has only been interested in handing over our sovereignty to the UN and the NWO. If things continue, in a couple of years, we will need a place to go.

Agreed

Me and my family are considering it.

AMEN

AMEN to that

Soooo........

when will we get our money???? Hopefully never you robber barons. Go ask Tim Geithner for the money. End The Fed or The Fed Will End You.

Amazing!

Thanks for posting.

Island!!!!

I have been following the Iceland story with great interest since I read an article in the back pages of the Herald Tribune back in Oct 2008. I couldn't believe what I was reading, Iceland being declared a terrorist nation by the British government. I have also been following the story on wikileaks. Of course I realized the dire consequences of this act of war by the British Government. I don't think I have had one day since then that I haven't informed a Swede about this. Of course most had no idea what was going on in Iceland, they just knew that the economy had collapsed.

It hit home to me mostly because a good percentage of my wealth is tied into another Scandinavian currency, the Swedish Kronor, and if Britain could do it to Iceland it very well could happen to Sweden.

I hope that the people of Iceland continue to stand strong in spite of the colossal opposition they face and will continue to face.

If they are any Icelandic people on this thread, can you please direct us in ways we might help you in your situation. Maybe a site that has more information.

Peace,

I have icelandic friends.

I have icelandic friends. They are mostly unaware, just living their lives. Political talk is not allowed, they revolt if I say a word.

Blah.

Nice to see a fellow swede ;).

I hope Island drops the EU membership, they dont want to be there.

The posibility of EU

The posibility of EU membership becomes smaller every month that the politicians delay the issue.

If it were to happen they had to do it quickly after the crash, I think they've waited too long already so that posibility has become very unpopular now.

Especially since Icelanders feel that the rest of the European countries that we used to have good relations with in the past abandoned Iceland, and for Britain and the Dutch to allow Iceland membership there will be extremely difficult conditions Iceland will have to meet.

Not the BBC interview, but another good one.

Brave Denmark, a similar decision.

Denmark was plagued by a serious food shortage.

"The value of whole, unrefined foods was dramatically demonstrated on a grand scale during the First World War. Denmark was plagued by a serious food shortage. The government assigned Dr. M. Hindhede, the director of the Danish Institute of Nutrition Research, to design a program for protecting the nation from the hunger threat.
The first action of Hindhede was to increase whole- grain production by limiting livestock production and curtailing the sale of meat, thus saving grain for human consumption. Production of alcoholic beverages was banned for the same reason. Also, grain processing was stopped and only whole-grain bread and cereals were allowed to be sold. Farmers were directed and encouraged to produce more grain, green vegetables, fruits, milk and butter, instead of meat."
"These simple, but from a nutritional standpoint revolutionary , changes in eating habits resulted in spectacular and rapid changes in the health condition of the whole nation. The death rate dropped over 40% in one year. Diseases that affected other European countries, including the dreaded influenza epidemic, bypassed Denmark. In only a few years, Denmark became the healthiest nation in all of Europe! " (p. 46)

lol, love it

It looks like the government

It looks like the government of Iceland is not playing ball with the New World Order. Maybe they will be the next nation to be invaded looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction, or al-Qaeda terrorists.

For those who don't believe in conspiracies, here is an example of how politicians are expected to behave. They don't act in the best interests of their nation. They don't listen to the will of the citizens of their nation. They do the will of the globalists. And when they don't, they are undermined financially, boycotted, sanctioned, bombed and invaded.

Welcome to the New World Order.

Not the government

It is the people who won't play ball. The government was ready to sell the people out in a heartbeat - whatever they had to do to stay in power.

It was the President who allowed a people's referendum, and the people said 'shove off' to the NWO.

We're the only ones who are going to stand up for our rights.

The Referendum has not happened yet

The Referendum has not happened yet. The Icelandic people will have to endure endless propaganda and fear mongering until they are broken down enough to actually submit to the NWO demands.

It is imperative that Iceland stands against the tyranny. If the Icelandic people are successful they will be the shinning light to all third world countries being oppressed debt. This is indeed the modern day David and Goliath story.

I would venture to say that at no other time in history has a foreign nation ever needed the help of American Patriots more than Iceland today.
