In addition to class war within Greece (though it's unclear to me Samaras belongs to the comprador class or that there is a class at all that will benefit form this in Greece), this is a third Great European War by economic means.

There is certainly a class that sincerely believes that it will benefit from this (at least in a relative sense). I know this because it owns the local media and it lets it be shown...

We need to establish more clearly "cui bono" outside of Greece... if it's a war, we know who is doing the shooting (Troika) - but who is getting the benefit?
