How the US Muscled Finland to Go Along with Greek Bailout

Major league insider Pippa Malmgren explains what went down:
Finland was quietly told by the US that NATO would not protect them in the event of a Russian cyber attack if they chose to continue opposing the last Greek bailout.

Such a threat has real meaning to Finland, a cyber/telecom based economy, considering what happened in Georgia in 2008, when an unnamed force, widely suspected to be, though never named as, Russia, shut down every media outlet, government department, and critical infrastructure network in the country.

Note: How much of an insider is Malmgren. I have written many times about her insider status. If that doesn't convince you, check out her published schedule (my bold)

  1. Did the threat of 'withdrawing protection have an alternate, Good-fellas kind of meaning? Because I doubt the Finns worried much about a **Russian** cyber-attack launched just for the fun of it.
