Hooray for two NATO countries fighting each other, just like Putin wanted.

Other than pork fat, turkey grease is the best.

So while Greece and Turkey are fighting Russia just happens to send 100,000 non active military members into Ukraine for "Vacationing and Sightseeing Time".

Not the first time they have fired shots in anger.  Remember 1974 and the Cyprus conflict, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish​_​invasion_of_Cyprus

I've seen lots of videos of Turkey Greece fires. You always keep a hose out and do that away from the house. Thaw out the turkey beforehand.
Deep fried turkey is good, though.

That's pretty much the reason they are both NATO members; to keep them from killing each other constantly.

It has mostly worked.

Mostly.

Yup, and such a conflict would be the downfall of NATO.   The Turks could easily smash the Greeks, so long as no other NATO members came to their assistance.  My guess is that no other NATO member of note would.    The Serbs, a non NATO member nation that has old grievances against the Turks, might join the Greeks, but I'm sure the Russians would cut a deal with the Turks, We let you guys have Greece, but keep your hands in your pockets when the Serbs steamroll the Bosnians and Albanians.  The US would also do nothing because the Turks are real friendly with Israel.  If Trump is reelected the above is more likely than most people care to admit.

Must be a butterball. You get a cup of grease every time you roast those suckas.

You might want to double check that.

If Russia invaded Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?

/I'll show myself out.

You're pretty far behind the times if you think this is still true.
