“Mr. Mitsotakis’ Greek-American agreement fits perfectly with his new doctrine, that of the predictable ally and the ‘Greece-advanced western outpost’, but it does not fit between two equal partners and a Greece with independence, dignity and national sovereignty.” This is how Mr. Tsipras assessed the agreement between Greece and the USA. “With today’s signing of the agreement with the USA, Mr. Mitsotakis becomes the first prime minister of the post-colonial regime to assign indefinite military installations on Greek territory.” Here, analysis is needed.
First, the leader of the opposition, who says these things, does not say where he said the day before yesterday about the agreement with France: That he, if he becomes prime minister again, will revise the agreement. Why doesn’t he say so? Since it is as burdensome as it is, why not commit to reviewing it? Because all this is for the various savage tribes of SYRIZA to hear. He does not believe them, of course. On the contrary, under his own government, the then far-right co-governor of Kammenos, as Minister of Defense, had publicly proposed to the Americans to take up bases on whichever islands they wanted, but they did not even respond. On Tsipras. Now he wants to say his services, but, obviously, he does not want to question the agreement he is criticizing. This is the positive. In this case, it would be much worse if he believed what he was saying and they were once depicted to give action. But everyone laughs…
Secondly, Tsipras has fallen into a huge contradiction within a five-line statement. He says he does not want Greece to be a “predictable ally”. But that is exactly what an ally means. It means he can predict that he will rely on it. Otherwise it is not an ally, it is… Erdogan’s Turkey, but without the displacement… And it took many years to reach the current level of Greek-American plans, precisely because Erdogan is no longer a real ally. Because, if it were, everything that is happening now and works decisively in favor of Greece, would not have happened, as it did not happen for decades. As for the Western outpost, this is where Tsipras hypocrisy hits the ceiling: that is, what does he want for Greece if not this? Does he still not imagine he will help the EU? Does the 70 Unbound’s of the ’70s want to be re-established? Does he want her alone in a world that is becoming more and more erratic with each passing day? Does he want an alliance with Russia, or with China? Like when he would “tear up the memoranda” and believe that the Chinese would give him money and the Russians ways to print it? In the end, all he got was a phone call from Putin to Hollande to pick him up. As if he were a commentator.
Thirdly, the contradiction becomes even worse: Tsipras criticizes both the content of the agreement and the lack, according to him, of compensation: “As compensation for these serious concessions, we have not only general reports in our circle of domination. “But there is no specific US presence, involvement or commitment to support this sovereignty against Turkish aggression, especially in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean.” I mean, what does he say? You make bad concessions and you do not get enough rewards! It does not go that way though. One, or the other. Not both. Either the content is bad for the “predictable ally”, or the content is good but a little in return. Another one, another one. Generally, but instead άλλων
