LOL wow for the House of Cards: Cyprus bank confiscations likely beta test for mass filching of deposits across western world. "Cannot possibly comment"
Admittedly this is a little bit speculative but it looks pretty big.
lol wow I can't believe they are triggering a huge EU bank run in Cyprus by confiscating big slabs of bank accounts to satiate the European Central Bankers - it's blamed on rich Russians who 'deserve' to have their savings jacked en masse.

It is mind boggling, they could just isolate bad bank debt or "paper" Iceland style, but instead of course it's way more fun to traumatize everyone by stealing their money point-blank as a "stability levy". This is because when you get down to it, fractional reserve banking is a crisis-driven paper scam system, and the scamsters gotta get paid up front regardless of what insane precedent is set...
I just finished watching the old 1990s UK House of Cards series & Cyprus is the finale setting - and lol the gas reserves are the big deal, just like the secret oilfield in the TV show. Similar scam to nuke savers floated in Australia as well. See CASH GRAB: Inactive bank accounts to be seized | News.com.au && After Cyprus, Who Is Next? | Zero Hedge

Are you ready for your Skinner box, ladies & gentlemen? The Big Theft is in Beta Testing! We must pay off all bank bondholders 100%, just eat the deposits!
