Turkish Fighter Jets Violate Greek Airspace 56 Times In A Single Day

In the last three months, tensions between two NATO member states have escalated dramatically - Turkey has threatened to invade Greek islands, Greece has responded, and Greeks now see Turkey as the greatest threat to their existence.

And while Turkish President Erdogan was busy talking up his currency and begging his people not to sell Lira for dollars, his air force was once again running interference with Greece.

As GreekReporter.com reports,Turkish fighter jets violated Greek airspace over the Aegean 56 times, making such incidents an almost daily phenomenon.

According to the Greek Ministry of National Defense, the air force recorded 56 violations of national airspace in the Northeast, Central and Southeastern Aegean.

Eleven Turkish aircraft - two F-16s that were flying in formation, two CN-235s and seven helicopters - also committed 14 air-traffic law violations in the Athens Flight Information Region.

According to the General Staff, in all cases, the Turkish aircraft were identified and intercepted by Greek fighter planes in line with international rules of engagement.

Two Turkish aircraft were armed.

However, despite all this provocation, the rapidly souring tensions between Greece and Turkey are “not an issue for NATO,” the General Secretary of the North Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Turkish news agency Anadolu.

With friends like this - who needs enemies?

I don't think Turkey cares at all about the EU, and Erdogan would much rather have EU billions for baby-sitting than actually having to be part of the club. 

The Greeks have completely destroyed their country, sold-off their children's futures and made it impossible to escape via their unending devotion to the EU and the euro. 

My opinion of the Greeks is the same as it is of the Germans and the Swedes, "you want to turn your country into a Caliphate ... God bless, I mean 'barakaka Allah'"

Most people in the West don't deserve to govern themselves. It seems the best form of government is one in which there is a high degree of economic freedom but absolutely no political freedom with a strong nationalist and military-isolationist government. 

Imagine for a second if the USSR or National Socialist Germany had employed this model (which the Chinese are currently doing). 

Yeup, the world would have been a better place.

And the German/Franco banking pulling out its money, assisted by the ECB (which started the shit in the first place), and then pulling out the rug from under the Greeks and turned them into debt serfs (as they did to the Irish), didn't have jack shit to do with anything?

 

Come on, Haus. A bit of balance?

 

The Greeks may be the most feckless, fiscally irresponsible nation on earth, but the Germans fucked them up the arse every which way. Because, like with the Irish, we discover German (and French) bank funds are sacrosanct. Even when they were one of the primary enablers of the aforementioned irresponsibility.

All their shite loans in Greece? Now propped on the bowing backs of the debt serfs who make up the population.

 

Besides, Erdogan is a first order cunt.

My point is -- the Greeks had the opportunity to right this boat and tell the German and French banks to "blow me, how about you write off 100% of the principal balance and we call it a deal .... mmmmmmmmmk?" 

But no, their "Leftist revolutionary" turned out to be a feckless sack of shit whom they reelected.  Why?  Because he is per se "left" and that's gotta mean he's the good guy ... AMIRITE?!

No fuck the Greeks.  The pretty lady on TV tells them every night how important European Unity is and how important it is to "preserve the relationship with your european friends and partners" and they'd destroy their own country to preserve it. 

At least if the Turks took over they'd tell the EU fags in Brussels to continue sodomizing themselves but without the Greek economy.  Greece would get put back on the Drachma or the Llira, YAYYY cheap vacations and the country would have the ability to stabalize.  

Fuck'em. 

EDIT - I have a Greek coworker, late 20s, highly intelligent and has been working in Germany for years.  He thinks like I do.  According to him, when he goes home for Christmas or some other similar occasion his grandma always asks him when he'll return to Greece to find a job and a Greek wife and have babies.  His response is: "Probably never Grandma, because people your age value your pensions more than they value giving people my age a Greece to raise a family and grow old in." 

He's right you know.

A couple of points: firstly, don't conflate the corrupt politicians with the people, and don't forget that the Greeks have been rioting and demonstrating for years now. Given that you need young men to overturn a government, and a significant number of Greek young men are no longer in Greece, the chances of you getting your revolution are slim.

Secondly, Turkey is ramping up its aggressive nonsense because its currency is collapsing, and Erdogan needs to look strong, not weak.

Finally, this is part of a long, depressing list of incidents, which happen daily. It doesn't help that Greece and Turkey have different ideas of where international waters starts and national waters stop, so both sides encroach on the other's just to make sure that their own view of where the border might be is enshrine in any agreement that might happen in the future. Every now and then they actually do shoot at each other, and a number of pilots have been killed on both sides. Here is a list of "major" incidents: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek–Turkish_relations#Incidents

DO YOU KNOW WHY??BECAUSE WE HAVE CULTURE,2500 YEARS AGO our philosopfers made breakfast on you "modern problems".The ancients used to say pir,gini and thalassa=fire,water and women. 

 

Btw a lot of faggots here in the zh are making jokes on greeks and gayness,everyone in the anciect world had homo lovers not only greeks,sulla for example one of the greatest romans had a wife and a lover.Its not a greek think,its just that the rest had no civilisation to report on those thinks.

Do you know what happend with sparta?Oligarchy and wonamnocracy,thats what happend.The last great king of sparta(cleomenes III of sparta) tried to pass some reforms and make the citizens of sparta again equal.

 

And this is the spirit of greece and of the greek"western" civ.CITIZENSHIP.You are supposed to be a citizen(of a democracy) not a fucking peasant,vote in elections,take part in the public life of you country,serve in the army,work,pay taxes and live your life with honour.

 

Total Obedience,degeneracy,rugged individualism,nationalism,communism,anarchy and all the "modern" ideologies are all barbarian creations.Thats why modern politics dont make sense.Oper borders with immigration,"free trade"(for the oligarchs)debt based currencies,low taxes without a state(fantasy),hight taxes without a state(debts),low taxes with a state(making debts),anarchy(mah freedum),the police state,no social cohesion-diversity...These are symptos of a sick and barbaric society.THERE IS NO BALANCE EVERYTHING IS ON THE EXTREME.

 

A healthy and civilised society is balanced."metron ariston" or "pan metron ariston".Everything must be done in balance.

I lived in Greece and loved it so much. I was there with a Greek woman and while life was not the best economically, in terms of enjoying life, Greeks know how to have a good time. Unlike Anglo-Saxon countries where people get drunk and become aggressive, people in Greece drink to have a good time without the aggression. Alot of the politically correct gender malakia and cuck behaviour is not an issue unlike in Anglo-Saxon countries, sexism is still rampant and the man (patriarchy) is the centre of everything, or so he is lead to believe. In Greek society, women are allowed to be feminine and men are allowed to be masculine, and it works. Greek culture is unique. Not an economic powerhouse, but blessed with good food, good weather, good women and lots of history.

The Greeks, in their referendum and support of Tsipras, believed they  had voted against the EU.  Tsipras bottled it - hence his former pal, Varoufakis, left him.  Your comment re the Greek grandmother is irrelevant.  The same is said by mothers all over the world.  Plus, Greece is in no more of a shit-state than, eg, UK/USA (after Obama had ruined it worse than Bush/Clinton)
