Athens: Bomb Explodes Outside JP Morgan Offices

    Reuters is reporting that a bomb has been detonated outside of the JP Morgan offices in Athens, Greece:

    A bomb exploded on Tuesday outside the Athens offices of JP Morgan, the second largest U.S. bank by assets, causing minor damage and no injuries, police and the company said

    The explosion is the latest in a series of blasts that have rocked the country since the police killing of a teenager in December 2008 sparked the country’s worst riots in decades.

    “It was a time-bomb outside JP Morgan’s offices at the second floor of an Athens building,” said a police official who declined to be named.

    “The explosion damaged the door, furniture, computers and smashed some windows,” the official added.

    Police had cordoned off the area after a local newspaper received a warning call. Ambulances and fire engines blocked streets in the upmarket central district of Kolonaki, where JP Morgan’s Greek offices are situated, a Reuters witness said.

    JP Morgan confirmed the incident and said there were no injuries.

    “No one was hurt,” said a JP Morgan spokesman in New York. “The company is still gathering details about the situation.”

    This will not be the last of such attacks on banking institutions and bankers. The populace, not just in the US but around the world, is fed up with the pillaging of the middle and working classes, and incidents like these will become more prevalent going forward.

    Jesse’s Americain Cafe points out that this has happened in the past, when unknown assailants detonated a bomb on September 16, 1920, killing 38 and injuring 400.

    Wall Street bankers seem to have a pretty good idea of the coming retribution, as we wrote in a December 2009 article, Bankers Arming Themselves, Preparing for Populace Retribution.

    Citizens around the world, having lost their homes and their livelihoods, will protest in droves, and some are going to get violent – you can bank on it.

      1. I hate to say it folks, but this is a sign of whats to come for the United States.

      2. I don’t care how submissive a populace seems, you screw them enough times, deep enough and they will fight back. How much do these thieves think the people should take?

      3. Gerald Celente said it best – “When people have lost everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”

        I am also reminded of the comic book story of the Punisher, who became who he was after losing his wife and kids to murderers.
