In the Army Now

Why does Greece have 100,000 soldiers from a population of 11 million while Germany has 200,000 for more than seven times the population of Greece (at 82 million)?

Tensions over Cyprus with Turkey? Yes, a good excuse for the generals to protect their budgets – a bit like Pakistan the actual budgets are hidden from public view.

Instead of cuts to health and education & to spending power among civilians, surely the Greek left wing government should slash military spending first, raise taxes on the rich and insist on a haircut for French & German banks.

Capitulation is not the best way to fight Capital.
