Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If the plan is to create a scenario where Greece is forced to exit against it's will - and thereby maintain it's Grexit negotiating position - then Greece cannot simultaneously be seen to be planning for Grexit voluntarily.

On the contrary. There is nothing wrong with saying "we desire a negotiated agreement, but we are building our portfolio of alternatives in case negotiated agreement turns out to be infeasible."

Greece does need to keep any mobilization it is doing under the radar. But the reason is that until a fairly advanced state of readiness their enemies can make them lose faster than they can mobilize the rest of the way.
