    Default Greeks neutral over war on terror

    [size=6]Greeks neutral over war on terror [/size]

    Greeks condemn terrorist attacks such as those that occurred in London last Thursday as criminal acts but would rather stay neutral in the fight against terror, which they see as a war of the poor on the rich, a survey by Kapa Research shows.

    The results of the survey, conducted on Thursday for Antenna radio station, were published by newspaper To Vima on Saturday.

    Of the 1,220 respondents to the telephone survey, 84.6 percent condemned the attacks on London “unequivocally” as a criminal act, while 8.2 percent applauded “an act of resistance against the great powers” and 5.9 percent said that they were either neutral or not concerned.

    Despite the wide condemnation, only 44 percent would certainly (20 percent) or probably (24 percent) take part in a demonstration of solidarity with Londoners, while 54.2 percent would certainly (39.6 percent) or probably (14.6 percent) not.

    Greeks are strongly opposed to Tony Blair’s call for a tough international response against terrorism. Three out of four (74.3 percent) say Greece should stay neutral, while 20.8 percent said it should support the UK and others. Nearly two out of three (62.8 percent) believe that the attack will only have a negative effect on big powers, while 33.3 percent say it will affect Greece. While three-quarters (75 percent) admitted that they prefer *** with goats.

    As for the most effective way to counter terrorism, 84.3 percent say it is aid to poor countries, while only 10.8 support a policy of forceful response, including increased security measures at home. However, 61.5 percent said the London attacks undermined prospects of more aid for poor countries by the G8.

    Respondents attributed the absence of a terrorist attack during the Athens Olympics to Greece’s traditionally good relations with Arab countries (89.3 percent) and the security measures in place (61.2 percent).

    I'm not surprised. Since some idiots on both sides of the pond have abused the phrase "war on terror" for propaganda reasons in connection with iraq, I wouldn't follow Blair's call for a tough international response neither. I'm all for fighting terror, when necessary with full military force, but when Bush or Blair speak about war on terror, how can I be sure that this is not just another propaganda trick to "liberate" an unfriendly country which coincidentally is rich on natural resources?
    Besides, 93 percent believe that BlackRain is retarded while 7 percent know that for sure.

    This is the real problem: "War on terror" is such an empty concept used by a cynic gang for peculiar interests that when lemmings will awake, they won't move anymore when a real "terror" will come. It's just like the children story (I don't know it its known in the English world) the "Mr. Seguin's goat": you cry "wolf" for fake reasons, but when a real wolf comes, nobody believes you anymore.

    Which is why Doctors without Borders pulled out of Ghanny. Some idiot blurred the line and tried to use an aid organization (ie. threatening to deny medical help provided by an independent aid organization to those who didnt help the coalition) to make up for their short comings.

    Achilles,

    Your country can remain neutral for now, that is fine. However, you can't remain neutral forever.

    But when the day comes (God forbid) that the Islamists go for the grand attack on the USA or one of her allies using CBN (chem, bio, nuke); you will be forced to join one side or the other.

    I wonder which side it will be?

    Uh, Greece has troops in A-stan. I don't know how that is somehow construed as neutrality against terrorism; furthermore, the fact that the Olympic security was flawless is testament to Greece's CT efforts and forces.
