Regarding the unbelievable events in the Greek-Turkish border

What is happening at the Greek-Turkish border along river Evros the last few days is highly alarming and extremely concerning for several different reasons, like:

  • The hyper-evident lack of common foreign and defense policy within the EU. Nobody seems to be taking Europe seriously, quite an embarrassing situation for ‘the world’s largest economy’
  • The way that EU is treating Ankara’s regime and Erdogan in particular is unacceptable. I remember the front page of “Le Point” asking “Le Dictateur — jusqu’où ira Erdogan?” — Given the tolerance he apparently enjoys, he’ll probably go very far.
  • The Greek government’s reaction has been more disappointing, more shameful, more mistaken than one could ever imagine. One can witness ‘group of angry citizens patrolling the border — with their guns — to help the law enforcement forces’. It alarmingly resembles to scenes of the Greek civil war. Who could ever expect Golden-Dawn-ish policies from Mitsotakis and a North-Korea-style propaganda machine supporting them? 
Le Pen, Salvini and Orbán must be very jealous of the Greek PM.

The events that take place the last few days along river Evros go far being the wildest — and ugliest — imagination.
