Reader comment on item: A New Axis: The Emerging Turkish-Israeli Entente

Submitted by Philhellene (United States), Mar 7, 2010 at 12:58

I strongly believe that Greece has the upper hand in a potential conflict with Turkey as long as they are determined to escalate in a full and total scale war with them which i have to admit it won't be easy for both of these countries.However Greece's advantages are obvious.The islands which are near turkish shores can turn these shores,same as Constantinople into dust in seconds,while if Greece wishes nothing can fly in the Aegean sea and i mean literally,not even a mosquito since the fire power would be devastating.Many of these islands has turned to fortresses and the losses in an attempt to capture them would result in thousands,andthey are not just one.It won't be easy for Turkish either since they will have many losses in aircrafts wile in the Greek northern borders things won't be easy either,with the starving Greek Leopard 2 Hell waitin for their victims.At the same time while this is taking place,in Aegean or North,Greek mainland stays secure away from firepower.Now,where is the Greek Airforce???You can easily imagine where it is when the Greek counter attack begins.Well,i wouldn't bet on Turks.Greeks have been fighting for the last 5.000 years,and history teach us that underestimation of Greeks,results in disaster.In WW2 forces from Italy,Germany and Bulgaria were needed to take them down.
