#1 Ironically, Greece is one of the few NATO "allies" that pays its fair share of the burden. Poland, UK, one of the Baltic states.

The rest of them are ungrateful freeloading assholes who need to be cut loose and told to pay for their own fucking defense.

#2  it was the Communists’ turn to protest.

I think it is nice that they are taking turns. But the whole thing sounds a bit formulaic, like a tradition rather than a protest protest like Hong Kong.

Greece has had indigenous Commies since Commies became a thing. They have gotten stuck at a economic point where Communism still seems like a good idea. Prolly inefficiencies due to endemic corruption (aka scamming) would be my guess.

#6 From Russia with love swarm the marbles
To warm in the sun their bare yarbles!
Imagine the surges
Through cute little churches
Of sturgeons with sun-whitened barbels!

As over the classic landscape waft the scents of rosemary, thyme, and Soviet suntanning products.
