Only God can defeat Greece.|0|

Did Turkey go to war with Greece! That interesting. I didn't know about that and I feel ashamed {}

I have heard that Turkey gas pipeline is going through Greece to Italy, France, Germany and Spain. Could the political climate affect this deal?

Well, we are kicking them since 1071. :)

No... we are not that bad with Greece. A showdown with Greece is very unlikely.

This type of stand-offs occur time to time, we are very used to it and it's not significant.

Greek Coast Guard boat harassing Turkish fisherman.


Turkish Type-209 surfaces, Greek boat runs for it. :)


Greek Coast Guard boat harasses Turkish fisherman, Turkish Coast Guard boat arrives and plays cat-mice with the Greek boat.

Turkish Jets low-passing over Greek Islands.

Also, a year ago nearly 20 Turkish military aircraft plowed Greek airspace all the way from North to South, then South to North. Possibly mapping all the Greek anti-air systems over the Islands.

There are in NO position to stand against Turkey from both military and economic point of views.

Lol @the video. I loved it. But to be quite honest guys Greece has a rich history that date thousands of years back. I have been Turkey already and think of visiting Greece in my next journey to Europe. Im just curious to visit the museums over there. Have you guys been to Greece? I had a classmate from Greece who was majoring in wine testing%-(

I have been in Greece but didn't travel, just passed it transit while going to Italy but I know Greece is as good as Turkey in tourism. Especially their islands. :)

I too don't understand the whole picture about Turkey-Greece conflict maybe @Sinan @xenon54 @Cabatli_53 can tell us the story.
I think i dont need to repeat what happened in middle ages since you probably know it but let me explain the recent history.
Turkey and Greece have two major disputes, one is Cyprus and the other is the territorial waters in Aegean.

Greece wanted to annext Cyprus back in 70's and made a coup there, then started to massacre Turkish minority on the Island, Turkey as one of the three guarantor mights of the Island intervened and occupied the Turkish populated north in 1974, after that no agreement could be reached with Greece and North Cyprus became de-facto independent.

And about Aegean, Greece wants Turkey to accept the International 12 miles rule which Turkey refuses because Greece could cut off the connection between Black sea and Mediterranian for Turkey, Turkey on the other hand wants a 6 mile rule which would be a more fair share of international waters in this case.



Current 6 nmi.






The 12 nmi rule which Greece wants.




So its pretty obvious that Turkey is not gonna accept the 12 nmi rule.

There are also minor disputes such as some small islands and the overall situation is also quite complex but all in all thats it.
