Comments: Give Greece What It Deserves: Communism
unless you quake at the sight of soldiers marching around in white skirts.
And don't forget the pom-poms on their shoes :-)
To think that, with help from the Truman Doctrine, post-war Greece fought a successful and brutal war against a Communist insurgency. What a waste that has turned out to be. Maybe the Turks should take over again.

The soft-handed fatasses at Forbes need to read about the Greek Civil War (1946-1949) or study up on the Hellenic Forces in Korea before they spout off about "skirts" (they're kilts, actually) or pom-poms on shoes.
Greece going Communist will be about as funny as Greece in its' current condition.

If someone requests a 'lifestyle', give it to them.
There is nothing worse than getting what one asks for as a gift.

Not a bad idea, but it would just re-balkanize the Balkans, ala Tito et seq.
Absent a Great Wall of Greece, people will still vote with their feet.

Must we keep running the Communist experiment? East Germany v West Germany, North Korea v South Korea, Red China v Taiwan, USSR v any western democracy, Cuba v any democratic country. How many more times do we have to see the results to get the message? It.Does.Not.Work! However, if the Greeks don't get it.........it's just sad.

Letting the Greeks go commie would really be letting 'em take it in the ass.

Free Markets vs Communism: It's all Greek to them.
