Some of you are full of delusional fairy tales of your own making it' not even funny.
Greece preparing for war against Russia? The crack must be tainted..
How the hell is this subject, air raid sirens being tested, associated with WW3 topics?
Where the heck are the moderators to actually MODERATE these forums anymore?
This thread is pure nonsense. This is nothing to do with WW3, or any war for that matter.
Are you going to start posting topics on every exercise and event in the Armed Forces of Greece, and/or every other country, and associate it with a
Greece-Russia going to war against each other. Never going to happen. Pure nonsense of the highest regard.
Here's a few FACTS which I doubt will actually get through to the ignorant robots here.
Russia and Greece have close relations. Relations which the West attempts to sour and poison, because Russia getting a foothold like Greece in the
Mediterranean will be very bad news for America and the West in general for a number of reasons.
1) Strategic location in the Eastern Med.
2) Natural resources. Greece is virtually untouched when it comes to mining and oil/gas extraction. There are hundreds of billions of dollars worth of
natural resources in Greece, if not more. And that's from the 'light' estimations of what lies beneath. Resources is THE number one reason why
there is tension between Greece and Turkey. It is the NUMBER ONE reason why they have nearly gone to war three times in recent times.
The Russian Navy routinely visits Greek ports, from Piraeus(Athens) to Thessaloniki to the many islands.
Russian Marines took part in a military parade on a Greek island not long ago. They are likely to again take part in a parade in Thessaloniki this
month. Russian Marines parading along side Greek soldiers, commemorating and remembering those fallen before us. Really sounds like the two countries
are going to go to war with each other yeh?? Bloody lunatics on this site.
The Orthodox Church in Greece and Russia are close, which means the people are close.
We aren't talking about Godless people like some of you on here. We are talking about people who have faith, who share a common religion and common
The Russian church has been helping the Greek people with donations for those who have been hardest hit by the economic crisis.
Where are your American new age evangelical nut job churches to help their fellow Christians out in a time of need? Huhhh? Too busy preaching about
the end of the world and rapture and other new age bullsh@#..or going around knocking on peoples doors preaching PROPAGANDA to them and trying to use
any means possible to get into their lives and take their savings, their homes as "donations"..
Do you know some of Greece's most important weapons are Russian in origin?
Same with Cyprus..
And those who dismiss a war between Greece and Turkey...how about STFU AND GTFO?
You are clueless and ignorant beyond belief.
Turkeys most modern weapons are deployed in it's western provinces, near the border with Greece.
Greece's most modern weapons, particularly armor, is also deployed in it's eastern provinces, near the border with Turkey.
Every day there are interceptions of Turkish jets over Greek airspace.
Turkey does not recognize the sovereignty of Greece over parts of the Aegean and Mediterranean. Coincidentally those areas are thought to be rich with
natural resources. Hence the tensions and coming close to war.
In 1996 we came close to war, Greece was mobilizing. Over a small islet called Imia. Nobody lives on it. But beneath the ocean around it there are
billions worth of valuable rare earth minerals.
In the 1980's we nearly went to war again, the Greek navy was ordered to sink Turkish ships in Greek national waters, after Turkey sent an oil
exploration vessel into Greek waters.
Things may have calmed down since then. But that's because America's interests in the nearby region, ie the Middle East and Balkans. The Americans
don't want those disrupted, hence pressure has been put on both countries to back off a little to avoid a conflict.
But war is coming. It is inevitable. Because Turkey will not back down from it's claims, and Greece will not back down from defending it's
sovereignty. Therefore a conflict will occur at some stage.
Both are in NATO? And your point is WHAT exactly?
One only has to look at the history of both since being in NATO, to realize that NATO membership has only STALLED the coming conflict between Greece
and Turkey. Both are in NATO because it is in America's interests to have that region of the world, the Eastern Mediterranean, in it's sphere of
