#1 Interesting, in that the obvious place for the Greeks to put such tanks would be Greek Cyprus.

#3 Yeah, I'll bet Uncle Sam will also pay the shipping for these 'free' tanks.

Seems to me the American taxpayers that own these should give them to the Border Patrol. Not really mobile, but a hell of a center piece for an outpost.

#4 Ok, this may seem sort of dumb, but we bought 10,000 of these M1 tanks. We need like 1,000 now. That leaves 9,000 turbine powered, depleted uranium land yachts to care and feed. THAT WE DO NOT NEED TO DEFEND AMERICA. They cost us money every day. Greece is a good NATO ally. Let's just agree to help them out.

Frankly, if they petitioned to be a new state, I would advocate bringing them aboard the American enterprise, debts be damned.

#5 Some of the hardest working ethnics I ever met were Greek, but all here in the USA.
