    about finance gaining control of Western military power is an important one.  If a domestic Pinochet-style military dictationship fails to arise, could foreign troops occupy Greece or Ireland or Spain to advance the interests of private financial concerns?  I don't think that's a farcical scenario anymore.

    I certainly wouldn't worry about public reaction in the United States, because anything can be sold as "freedom" if enough money is devoted to marketing.
