Viva la Intifada in Greece

In 1946, the U.S. government, headed by Harry Truman, decided that Greece should be be ruled by Nazi collaborators. And so it was, in keeping with the the same U.S. commitment to liberty that we see on display in Iraq, Palestine, Somalia and everywhere else.

It's been more than fifty years of waves of repression and corruption. But the recent murder of a teenager by the police led many to say enough is enough. Today again, masses of young Greeks are in revolt. Here's some background.

Nothing is certain in life, except death, taxes, and that wherever there is repression, there will be an Israeli connection. In this case, the Greek pigs ran out of tear gas, and naturally appealed to the "light onto the nations" for help.
The greek government is urgently seeking fresh supplies of tear gas from Israel and Germany, the police said. (The Telegraph)
The word 'democracy' was born in Greece. Maybe it will be reborn there too.
