Isn’t this really all about the US supporting the provision of Israeli oil and gas to Europe and the constant US attacks on Nord Stream 2? Does anyone honestly think that the US cares about Greece? Of course it doesn’t! All of its interests in the region are connected to that nasty little Asian nation at the butt end of the Mediterranean. Yankee should stop interfering in countries on OUR continent, get out of Europe, and go home. Remember the phrase, “beware of Greeks bearing gifts”? Greeks should beware of the US bearing gifts because carrots turn rapidly into sticks… Read more »

Ah! Thanks! Now I understand Pompeo’s visit! As for your phrase “Greeks Bearing gifts” – I think that dates back when they were an Empire. No more!
America today is in the same boat!

I pretty much agree with Smoking Eagle. I hope this sudden overwhelming attention by Pompeo doesn’t go to their heads. Keep in mind that the US has no friends, wants no friends, and only uses people and nations to further their own and Israel’s interests. I do believe that Pompeo’s sudden eagerness to court Greece is closely connected to the recent flareup of military action between Azerbaijan, allied with Turkey and Israel, against little Armenia which will be defended by Russia and Iran. I have mentioned before that I see this as a setup for a possible WWIII, which Israel… Read more »

I also hope that this suspicious behaviour of Pompeo doesn’t turn Greek heads. Greeks should definitely “keep in mind that the US has no friends, wants no friends, and only uses people and nations to further their own and Israel’s interests”. Every nation should know by now that the US does not keep its word or honour its commitments. The UK (as far as I am aware) hasn’t been mentioned in the flare-up of Azerbaijan’s military action against Armenia, but it has massive oil interests in Azerbaijan so I am wondering about the part it might be playing in this.… Read more »

It’s so funny, the Greeks are never satisfied, always torn between what they need and what they want the world to think they need. Complaining about the USA kicking the troops out of Greece and then condemns them for not helping. Get over it Greece, Socialism DOESNT WORK!!! Take advantage of Mitsotakis now that he’s in office to have Greece return to some degree of normalcy. And to answer your question dear when Greece begins to care about THEMSELVES so will the rest of the world especially USA.

Come on guys. The HORRIBLE Christine LeGarde ruined Greece’s economy, to please EU & US – she’s French. Greece is full of corrupt Greek Oligarchs. So sad: normal Greeks are wonderful! Face it: Goldman Sacks lied to get them into EU; It was a WONDERFUL country before; Pompeo is a fraud. Rise up Greeks! Get rid of your Oligarchs & EU corruptos!

Most of Europe was wonderful before the EU! It isn’t anymore, thanks to the US. https://www.globalresearch.ca/eu-votes-cia-wins-again/5679587 “With this in mind, the Americans began to construct a solid anti-communist block in the West of Europe in the late 1940s. Today’s EU is the result of this US / CIA fanaticism. Writing in 2016, in the conservative British newspaper The Telegraph, the journalist, Ambrose Evans Pritchard, notes that: “declassified documents from the State Department archives [show] that US intelligence funded the European movement secretly for decades, and worked aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into the project.”“The key CIA front was… Read more »
