BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) On Saturday, the Greek Army announced its readiness to respond to any steps by Turkey, threatening to burn everyone who sets foot on Greek soil.
A Greek news website quoted the statements of the Chief of Staff of the Greek Army, Constantius Florus, who did not rule out the occurrence of a military conflict with Turkey in the event that Ankara proceeded to cross the red lines, noting that the military conflict is possible, and no one can exclude this possibility. And if anything like that happens, this will not be limited to one point, but will widen immediately.
Florus also stated that whoever attacks the Greek armed forces will pay a heavy price, and the neighbors know this, stressing that Athens knows what to do in the event of a Greek attack.
He announced the Greek Minister of Defense is ready to do anything to protect its sovereign rights, including military action against Ankara.
Tensions between Greece and Turkey have recently reached a decade-long-high after Ankara began the exploration process of the eastern Mediterranean waters.
Greece has created an alliance with several nations in the eastern Mediterranean, including Cyprus and Egypt, to contain Turkey, despite Ankaras warnings to Athens.
Trojan War v2.0....................
Trojan War part deux?.................
And guess who Russia will support? Their Orthodox brethren.
And Turkey is in NATO. (Why?!?!?!?!)
The Turks are vastly better prepared and equipped for a war than the Greeks. That’s been true for years.
By the way, Turkey has 71 million more people than Greece.
I love their soft hats. They are so practical.
The Italians thought the same thing. Didn't work out.
That all of them? The new 300?
About as practical as sending our the NG to riot zones without weapons and soft caps.
The Italians thought the same thing. Didn’t work out. ...................... It did with the Huns.
I’ll take the Barrett 50 cal over the pump shotgun...
That would be a very, very short episode.
THIS IS SPARTA!.................
Had Nazi Germany not had to bail out the Italians in Greece, they would have launched Barbarossa earlier, and probably would have been able to capture Moscow before Winter.
Make Byzantium Great Again!
“The Italians thought the same thing. Didn’t work out.”
True, but we’re talking about the Turks not Italians.
“By the way, Turkey has 71 million more people than Greece.”
And more than half are under thirty.
Make Istanbul Constantinople Again!
