Greek security forces have warned of a wave of violence reminiscent of the terror that stalked Italy in the seventies after urban guerillas threatened last week to turn the country into a "war zone".
"Greece has entered a new phase of political violence by anarchist-oriented organisations that are more murderous, dangerous, capable and nihilistic than ever before," said Athanasios Drougos, a defence and counter-terrorism analyst in Athens.

And a few of my friends just came back from Greece. ``Greece is a war zone`` is utter propaganda.
All of Greece isn't in violence. Only Athens.

My youngest daughter wants to go back to Greece next summer for international studies. She went there 4 years ago and had the time of her life.
She'll be a senior in college going for her Master's in accounting and wants some international banking experience/education. I've tried to talk to her about "Why Greece?" in regard to business. Why not Hong Kong? Well, she seems to be like most kids and doesn't listen to reason. We'll see...
I'm concerned about more than Greece having anarchy.

Interesting use of the word 'sect' in the headline - the religious connotations of the word make the revolutionaries seem like they have a faith - and some have called communism a faith. Think it is pretty perjorative myself, and aimed at making them seem like nutjobs.

Probably those violent, racist Tea Partiers back at it waving their 'Don't Tread On Me' flags!
