Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not very convincing, to put it mildly. A pipeline avoiding Muslim country aligns Greece perfectly with Western Europe. Nato? What are the problems? Interaction with Turkey? Hardly an Orthodox Christian problem (as opposed to Christian in general). Is there anything else comparable with France's refusal to help go after Iraq's WMD? Rich Russians investing in Cyprus? What about in London? Buying arms from Russia? Maybe because they are cheaper (see Turkey trying to buy arms from China).

EU? Some unnamed officials saying that their admission was a mistake? What do they say about the UK? Dictatorship? Put in there with Western support (and is he aware of the fact that Catholic Spain and Portugal were also military dictatorships?). Finall,

It was poorer than other Community and NATO members

I though the whole point was that cultural, not economic, fracture lines were the main issue.
