They should have downed any Turkish jets violating their airspace from time ago.

They havent, so Turkey keeps on doing it.

Most of the Greek population support a war.

According to some poll,

cant remember where I read it or the sample size or anything else,

But the Greeks are determined and pissed.

Before a war starts the Eu and USA jump in and stop it... Greece would most likely cause a lot of damage and very likely win. A loss to turkey means extreme upheaval within the country, the Turks know this.. I wouldn’t expect anything out of this..

The US has frozen weapons sales to Turkey for two years.

https://ahvalnews.com/us-turkey/us-cong ... ars-report

The other week, aircraft carrier eisenhower was parked up at a Greek island, with 10 or so other war ships.

US congress has lifted a decades olds arms embargo on the Republic of Cyprus.

Make of that what you will.

Maybe its time to liberate Cyprus and balkanize Turkey.

The world is full of idiots and we have some running countries. Just looking at Donald Trump you can clearly see what a sorry state the world is in. Let's hope this doesn't escalate and common sense prevails.

Common sense is;

Don't violate other countries borders and exclusive economic zones.

That's proper conduct.

Follow the law of the sea.

This has nothing to do with trump.

It has everything to do with erdogan and turkey. Trying to steal other people's land in the region and resources in the med sea.

Common sense exists with every other country in the region except Turkey and erdogans lackey in North Cyprus and Libya.

Greece shows immense restraint with Turkey and the EU has so much patience they might as well be aloof.

Don't try and divert attetion away to trump or make it seem like Turkey has some value claim going on.

She is attempting to violate other countries rights with gunboat diplomacy. Everyone else is trying to enforce the law.

No country acting under the “Law of the Sea Convention“ escort their drill and seismic survey ships by military vessels, which is what Turkey does, because Turkey has not signed that treaty, because she knows that the law is not on her side, therefore she literally uses gunboat diplomacy to try to “negotiate” with others rights to their EEZ to give her what she is not entitled to. If Turkey wasn’t a trouble maker with her neighbours, I believe they would have cut her into the bounty under the Med’s sea floor, but not the way she is behaving which she has alienated everyone in the region. If she is not careful, not only these neighbouring countries are going to drill together, but they will form a defense pact much like NATO to attack Turkish ships when entering EEZ of her neighbours.
