  • New Democracy and Pasok: the coalition of the bankrupt   31 weeks 1 day ago

    They've been in power for 40 years now, plundered the public coffers, drove the country bankrupt, drove hundreds to suicide and all this on the taxpayers' - and banks' - money!
    I say relegate them to the amateur leagues and ban them from the next two elections or declare them bankrupt financially and scatter them into the four winds!

  • US points to Russian role in allegedly leaked Ukraine phone call   31 weeks 5 days ago

    In case you missed it. this was supposed to be a private conversation between two US diplomats. Of course Russia (the land that Snowden chose because they 'don't spy on other countries') happened to come across the recording! Where else do you think this dialog came from?

    And, by the way, a lot us here in the US agree with Nuland. "F* the EU". There is no foreign policy by this 'Tower of Babel' of countries.

  • Dnevni FYROM: Bulgaria, Greece may be put under monitoring over minorities   31 weeks 5 days ago

    The Slavic peoples are quite a genetically divers group. But based on some new research http://www.dnatribes.com/sample-results/dnatribes-global-survey-regional..., start with this one; the Slavic peoples in the Balkans are a mix of Polish, Thracian, Balkan, Aegean and Italian markers. AND as one moves geographically closer to Greece they have high Aegean/Greek genetic markers. So when you describe them in the manner in which you have, you demean everyone but mostly yourself.
    Instead of taking a combative and polarizing approach with your Slavic brethren, if you; those like you and the Greek state would take an open armed / inclusive approach you might (by now) be referring to them as your brothers to the north instead of your adversaries.
    The deep insecurity you and others like you feel must change. Your first step is to pick up any books about Byzantium, Greeks in the Ottoman Empire, the War of Independence and Modern Greece that includes WW2. When you start learning; then start commenting.

    Till then please try to moderate your sophomoric comments, you are embarrassing.

  • US points to Russian role in allegedly leaked Ukraine phone call   31 weeks 6 days ago

    Two senior US diplomats are caught taking part in a conversation, using language fit only for the street, and the US blames... Russia?

    For years now American foreign relations are directed by forces which allow no deviance from their policies and no independent thinking and have produced a small clique of "diplomats" (do they even know what the word means?) that are narrow-minded and full of contempt for anything "foreign".

    My advice to the US: replace Nuland and Pyatt with people who can at least hide their contempt.

  • Greek and Turkish Cypriots close to agreement on joint statement   32 weeks 18 hours ago

    They can't even agree on a joint statement, how are they going to resolve the entire Cypriot problem?
    I think those of us who survive WW III may see the Cyprus problem resolved at that point - not before.

  • Golden Dawn chooses backup name in case of ban in Greece   32 weeks 18 hours ago

    I remember a time when KKE was banned in Greece - but EDA was not.
    It seems it pays to do well in history!

  • Church gets digital, digital   32 weeks 5 days ago

    A good move!
    Now, if we can get the church to admit that:
    * beards are an anachronism
    * services should be simplified
    * scripture should be read in modern Greek
    * widowed priests should be allowed to wed
    etc., etc., maybe we can get away from a self-serving tradition that has nothing to do with Christianity.

  • Refugees are 'unarmed invaders' sent by the Turks, says govt MP   32 weeks 5 days ago

    From a historic perspective she is totally correct; and her blunt politically-incorrect approach is refreshing. Islam has a long history of demographic flooding that go’s back to Mohamed himself. The Ottomans used it effectively with depopulations/repopulation and so has modern Turkey. The EU complained to Turkey just a few years ago that it was changing the racial and historic profile of the inhabitants of the European side of the Dardanelles by repopulating it with peoples from the depths of Anatolia. Why did they do that? Turkish colonialists are still going to Norther Cyprus. Why are they doing that?

    Sending refugees to Greece is just another example of the Turks being Turks. Sending refugees to Greece further weakens a country already struggling with its economy and creates a fifth column within Europe as a whole.

    The problem here for the Turks is that the EU and US are finally starting to realize the true nature of Turkey’s long term imperial ambitions. Even Israel is starting to come around. These are interesting times, for sure.

  • Reward in hunt for Greek fugitives   33 weeks 15 hours ago

    No not patriotic, just practical. The US still has the death penalty and would have fried these guys’ years ago, not let them out on vacation. Especially after the state proved that they have not only the propensity to murder; but also the will; capability and history of doing so. And yes we all know how horribly flawed the US legal system has been; no need to preach to me about that; but in this case I still think justice would have been better served if they had been tried in the US and made KFC crispy.

  • Orthodox bishop claims cloak has special powers   33 weeks 17 hours ago

    He is the same Bishop who urged people to burn New Testaments (approved by the Church of Greece) because they were being handed out by Evangelicals.
    Who voted him in???

    It reads like a bad Hollywood movie, where the plot is too unrealistic to be true.

    Are you just being patriotic? For somebody that doesn't like his current President (he's to 'left leaning' for his liking), you're telling us that the US is the land where justice is served. Or do you think that the US does not extend beyond Texas?

  • Orthodox bishop claims cloak has special powers   33 weeks 20 hours ago

    Yes, but can he fly? Does he have X-Ray vision? Does he have another identity when he doesn't wear the cloak?

  • Tsipras not attending EU presidency ceremony   33 weeks 20 hours ago

    I understand that you lean towards the far right but that doesn't make you any smarter than tieyetos. One's political believe does not make them smarter - or dumber for that fact. Just like not every right leaning Greek is hospitable or a good person.

    Also, you could do yourself a favor and read a book for a change, instead of relying on FOX news for all your information!

  • Tsipras not attending EU presidency ceremony   33 weeks 2 days ago

    Mr. Tsipras is indeed an idiot but not because he is Greek, it is because he is a anti-establishment-communist. That says it all. If you have traveled at all you will find few people as hospitable as the Greeks and by extension they tend to be quite caring people. Greeks don’t F each other because they are Greeks, they do so because so many of them have bought into the socialist BS and by extension become godless; opportunistic; thieving; lowlifes like anti-establishment-leftists everywhere.

  • Reward in hunt for Greek fugitives   33 weeks 3 days ago

    I understand that the bleeding hearts want those poor terrorist to have some time away from the brutality of the penal system; except if it was their loved one that was slaughtered by one of these creeps. It is unfortunate that Europe has been so neutered by the socialist ‘vlakyes’ that they actually have come to accept stupidity of this magnitude.

    He along with his cohorts should have been tried in the US and received real justice.

  • New Democracy asks Tsipras to clarify whether he is an atheist   33 weeks 4 days ago

    Really? Last I checked it was the communists pretending to be socialist that seized power in Greece in the last few decades and ran the country into the toilet. Not so much those dirty capitalists and Church goers. How is Christianity to blame for what socialism has precipitated on the Greek?

    I have witnessed churches in the US collecting to feed the poor in Greece. I haven’t heard any communist officials offering to help from their own pockets have you? And I know that churches there have set up soup kitchens, etc. What have the great and wonderful institutions of the communists and socialist set-up? Really, I’d like to know.

    I do believe that there should be a separation of church and state and it is long overdue in Greece. And what you didn’t already know that a hard-core-antiestablishment leftist like tsipras is an atheist then you probably smoke too much gonja. But please you can’t blame those dirty Christians for what the leftist opportunistic thieves have perpetrated on Greece.

    What's all this fuss about? Bean soup and lentil soup did no harm to our soldiers in years gone by!

  • Reward in hunt for Greek fugitives   34 weeks 22 hours ago

    "... serving six life sentences..."
    "... vanished while on release from prison."

    The mind boggles.
