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