Is it a “fiscal cliff”, or Odious Debt?

WHILE THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA PORTRAYS CONGRESS DEALING WITH THE SO-CALLED “NATIONAL DEBT”, HOW MUCH OF IT IS IN ACTUALITY “ODIOUS DEBT”?

Most people are completely unaware of the concept (and precedent) of international law called “Odious Debt”.  The following is a video clip from a fabulous documentary (“Debtocracy”) that was made to help explain what has been done to the Greek population by a corrupt government.

Video clip:

The concept of Odious Debt should prompt us to ask ourselves some tough questions, such as . . . how did the following wars benefit the American people?

WWI, WWII, Korean War, Viet Nam War, Gulf War, war in Afghanistan, Iraqi War, war in Libya?

How did the bankster bailout benefit the American people? How is the money spent on the militarization of our local police benefiting the American people? How is HAARP benefiting the American people? How are domestic drones benefiting the American people? The list of expenditures that benefit a small group of corporate interests at the expense of the general population goes on and on and on!

Here is a link to the full Greek documentary made in 2011:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZc6oD0WfW8
