Maybe Putin can appoint Edward Snowden to this job now. They seem to be good buddies lately.
It's a shame that Southern Sudanese - long victims of Khartoum Muslims' bigotry - are now resorting to violence amongst themselves.
its theirs they owned Greeks lost it to the winners go the spoils.
GREEKS DO NOT BELONG IN EUROPE JOIN THE STAN SH**HOLES.
how about Albanians and roma and some vlahs .he will do anything to be elected which is dangerous in its self..
Why not try sneaking into Israel? Im sure the reception there would be much much different!
It seems to me that there is no trustworthy candidate to advocate and protect Greek interests over "self". Neither from the sullied ruling classes which amazingly still cling to power, nor from aspiring "new hopefulls" that are obviously eager future "sellouts". Is there not ONE Greek for Greece candidate? Damn it?
If this was Tsipras himself using Turkish to win votes in Rhodope, I would say he was off-base since it would imply the Muslim minority is Turkish.
This, however, is a Turkish-language MP appealing to fellow Turkish-speakers for votes and I see nothing wrong with that.
Our people are unemployed, our healthcare is in shambles but... rejoice: We have returned to the international bond markets!
For once, Greece is in trouble for the right reasons: the EU - and Greece in particular - should be concerned about the human rights situation in Iran which has been appalling since the late 1970's.
I just wish the Greek state had gone as much out of its way to protect its corrections officers as it now does to persecute them.
way to much hypocricy here from the west how about isreal?
I think it is pretty obvious that the government was seeking political gains through on over-the-top persecution (I, of course, meant prosecution) of the Golden Dawn party.
Current events prove two things:
1. The political immaturity of the Greek people swayed by the slightest breeze.
2. That a new definition of "honour" exists in Greece where underlings resign for the sins of their superiors. I am sure Mr Samaras will continue to be unfamiliar with issues that should be his responsibility but, somehow, Panagiotis Baltakos will be taken care of fulfilling his duty towards his boss.
Hear, hear! This is a first, too. My agreeing to one of your comments, that is.
... Well said, though.
sent the idiot to turkey for good let him learn Turkish ,or maybe he already does.
Had the state:
1. Kept our borders safe.
2. Kept the death penalty.
3. Never established "leaves" for criminals - who now think it's their right.
Tsironis would have been with his two children and this psychopath would have been dealt with in Albania.
Now, we have an officer needlessly dead, two children orphaned, corrections officers about to be punished and a prison population ready to riot.
Who's to blame? A decadent, over-the-top "democracy" that confuses freedom with license
Talk about ...milking consumers. I guess dairy companies are the 'big business' of Greece, running broad campaigns brainwashing consumers and getting politicians to pass some law that only benefits them (dairy folks).
For 40 years the United States have tried to impose, as a "solution" to the Cyprus crisis, an acceptance on the part of Greeks of the status quo with minute modifications.
If they truly want a real solution, pressure and sanctions must be imposed on Turkey - and Turkey alone - to move from their intransigent position.
There must not be a bi-zonal solution of any sort: people should be allowed to return to their homes. The communities can be self-governing in matters of culture but Cyprus must remain a unitary state with the same type of democracy enjoyed by the rest of the world. And it must be recognised as a free state by all - without any "rights" of intervention or invasion.
It is high time that Europe see that their interests do not coincide 100% with the United States and act accordingly.
Europe must see it was a big mistake to follow American "sanctions" against Russia: they only stand to lose.
Europe must also realise they are directly responsible for the crisis in Ukraine and quit their policy of economic subjugation of the continent.
In short: realise that European states are inter-dependent and that these interests must take precedence over any links with outside powers.
Many prisons in Europe believe in the "rehabilitation" approach, others like North America believe more in the "punishment" approach.
Which is better? probably somewhere in the middle
The mind boggles...
Looking forward to a good game. I wish Olympiacos a nice showing and a good result. I think they can move to the next round - as long as they don't play scared.
Nice of the gentleman to speak up for Europe!
And I thought he was Secretary of State only for the US...
