  • Pangalos urges mass airborne exodus if Syriza's Tsipras is elected to power   21 weeks 8 hours ago

    If they haven't already fled under the PASOK-ND coalition, I doubt they would flee with any other disaster that came their way.
    Clam up Pangalos!

  • Greece qualify for World Cup   21 weeks 16 hours ago

    Congrats Mitroglu (to the possible chagrin of Jim Adams and Irlandos....LOL) and the National team for a more entertaining brand of football than what I am used to seeing!

  • 12 migrants die in boat sinking off Greece   21 weeks 4 days ago

    The Greek state, and the EU in general, need to get very tough on illegal migration not just for the preservation of national borders but, more importantly, for the sake of the migrants themselves who fall victims to unscrupulous human traffickers who care only about money and nothing else.
    Stiff fines and immediate deportation should be applied to the migrants and a double-digit jail sentence to those who profit by their misery.

  • Greek consortium wins tender to build first mosque in Athens   21 weeks 4 days ago

    "... a country that spent nearly four decades under Turkish Ottoman rule" ... "by Karolina Tagaris in Athens"

    *eyeroll* Is she a Greek? Someone ought to school Ms Tagaris about the time Greeks spent under Ottoman rule.

    These are people who suffered and still suffer the effects of a bloody invasion and all you can come up with is "Of course, I don’t think we would agree with that”?
    How much longer are you going to sit by while these people live as displaced refugees?
    How much longer are you going to expect compromise on the compromise of a previous compromise... by the victims?
    How much longer are you going to tolerate Turkish intransigence?

  • Thousands protest 'toxic' gold mine in Greece   22 weeks 3 days ago

    Who's going to "pocket" the money? I mean I recently saw that African billionaires increased by 200% this past couple of years, yet the people are still starving, destitute, etc.
    If the $ is kept in the country and for the betterment of the economy, I am all for it, but somehow I believe greed will rear its ugly head once again.

  • Thousands protest 'toxic' gold mine in Greece   22 weeks 3 days ago

    I am all for ecology and nature but Greece needs to be increasing exports!
    I hope all precautionary measures have been taken care of so this venture may proceed though, I fear, some protesters will keep protesting - mo matter what - for the sake of protesting.

  • Greek government to face no-confidence vote after ERT police raid   22 weeks 4 days ago

    Of course the government will win the no confidence vote, what is Tsipras thinking???
    And - equally of course - after they win the vote, we will hear how they "are supported by the vast majority of the representatives of the people" and we'll have to swallow more austerity measures, closures, arrests and anything else their imagination can concoct.

    Well, what d'ya know! Another crooked politician in Greece! What are the chances?

  • Greek riot police evict protesters from public broadcaster   22 weeks 6 days ago

    For a minority PM, Antonis Samaras sure pulls his weight!
    He unilaterally shuts down ERT, arrests the entire Golden Dawn party - on questionable charges - and now breaks into the ERT building - quite unnecessarily.
    Imagine if, by some freaky chance, this man ever became PM with a majority in Parliament: he'd rule like a Byzantine emperor!

  • Manolas and Roberto inspire Olympiakos   22 weeks 6 days ago

    As far as I'm concerned, Roberto gets a 10 for last night's performance and the rest of the team - including Manolas - get to split another 10 points.
    The team could not string a pass or two together. Defenders were merely clearing the ball downfield to no one in particular. The pressing from Benfica forced numerous errors in the defence and midfield.
    And another thing: Mitroglou has got to go: he hasn't got a clue as to his role.
    *A perfect cross from Dominguez found him napping on the wrong side of the penalty spot.
    *A perfectly-threaded through ball should have resulted in a goal - except Mitroglou forgot to make a run onto it.

    Olympiakos may make the final 16 but will very likely be embarrassed in the knock out round.

  • Germany's export obsession is dooming Europe to a depression   23 weeks 3 days ago

    Congratulations to Atlantic for stating what others know but are afraid to say: the euro, and more generally the EU, is cut in Germany's measures, to increase their exports at the expense of the weaker European economies.
    The solution is not to tighten the economic rules of the weaker states. It is for Germany allow for more exports and a bigger share of the pie of the other, weaker states or, failing that, a dissolution of the eurozone and all export assignments and a return to true competition.

  • Arsenal and Liverpool battling Dortmund for Greek star Kostas Mitroglou   23 weeks 3 days ago

    If we look at "missed opportunities" on the National Team, given the fact that they practically win 1-0 EVERY GAME. Either:
    1) EVERYONE misses MANY opportunities (i.e. every striker, not just Mitroglou) or
    2) There aren't as many instances of goal scoring as you suggest.
    Also, playing in Greece League does not indicate how good of a player will be anyway because most decent players that have played in Greece went when their career was pretty much dead anyway, but its worth a shot to find out (see Ninis' failed attempt in Parma even when he was supposed to be the "Greek Messi").
    Furthermore, anyone can fail in any system, Zlatan one of the best strikers in the world looked VERY ordinary in Barca b/c he wasn't the go to guy, so stats might not mean anything, but context often does!
    Finally, who cares, these teams have scouts that look at so many players, if they think he's good enough, they will either reap the rewards or swallow his contract.

    Disregard this comment as my original is posted below...

  • Arsenal and Liverpool battling Dortmund for Greek star Kostas Mitroglou   23 weeks 4 days ago

    And of course let's not forget that there are no stats for missed opportunities. If a team (in this case the Greek NT) creates 20 or so good opportunities in a game, and he can't push the ball over the line with an empty net... He might have scored 2 goals in 3 games, but how many has he missed? A good striker is one that scores with half an opportunity - somebody that makes something out of nothing.

  • Arsenal and Liverpool battling Dortmund for Greek star Kostas Mitroglou   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Sorry, but stats have to be seen in conjunction with the club one plays for.
    Giovanni could also impress with stats but he was well sub-par on the playing field as a striker and would be useless to any club in a decent league.
    Ditto Mitroglou.

  • Two members of Greece's Golden Dawn shot dead   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Parents are mourning once again in Greece because of yet another senseless murder.
    Isn't it time the Metapolitefsi establishment stopped this brainwashing of our children? Isn't it time the politicization of our schools ended?
    Isn't it time we all saw our fellow man as human beings like ourselves, created in the image of God Almighty with feelings - instead of enemies with some imaginary, detestable label on their forehead?

  • Greek Cyprus offers proposal to Turkey to end Cyprus dispute   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Varosi should be handed back as a sign of good will from Turkey without any quid pro quo expected.
    At this stage, 39 years after the invasion, it will be only land they are handing back as every road and every single building will have to be re-built.

  • Two members of Greece's Golden Dawn shot dead   23 weeks 4 days ago

    What you guys are saying could indeed be true, but why can the same not be said for the murdering of the Greek rapper?
    That could have been an inside job too from the powers that be that needed a high profile murder to galvanize people against GD and give them "cause" to throw them in jail?
