NATO not to let Greece out EU

The geopolitical importance of Greece will not allow it to leave the EU. It will also not be let to default due to economic considerations.

Dr. Faber, an editor of the Gloom, Boom and Doom report states that "it's about the ECB and European banks that have lent money to Greece and if Greece defaults would have to take a huge loss and write-off. So they will lend more money and kick the can down the road."

Of even greater significance is Greece's strategically vital location as a gateway between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. It is this geopolitical factor which Faber believes will ensure that Greece is kept within the EU at any cost. For this reason he insists that Russia will never cede Crimea to the western powers.

"From the Black Sea, the Russian fleet can move into the Mediterranean. and without that, they can't - they have no access to the Mediterranean, without the Black Sea and Crimea."

The implication is that were the EU to cut Greece loose, Russia would be only too happy to step in and potentially project military power directly into Europe.

He goes on to highlight the new emerging geopolitical order where emerging powers China and Russia grow ever closer. There was plenty of Asian media attention on Premier Xi's visit to Russia.

Faber believes there is evidence that the global influence of the UK and the U.S. is in decline.

He cites China and Russia's ever-closer relationship as being more important than the the relative insignificance of Britain's election and suggests China and Russia's increasing power is a "new world order."

Dr. Faber notes that the EU will jawbone Greece until the eleventh hour in order to extract the best terms. Ultimately, however, they are left with little choice but to bail Greece out and postpone the inevitable for a little while longer.
