I disagree with you blaming Greeks (regardless of their political views). I am afraid that, given the difference in manpower and firepower between Turkish and Greek military, there is little Greece can do in case of land grab by Turkey. Only NATO (read: USA) could help in such case, but NATO is poorly equipped to deal with rogue, aggressive member states, and there is a bad precedent: NATO was happy to leave Turkey attack Cyprus, ethnically cleanse Greeks and grab its northern part. I don't think the situation is different now.

Regarding Greece, Maya is right, except that Greek leftists yak about independence from Europe. Their alternative is being a Turkish vassal. Being in debt to Germany is the best of all *possible* worlds for them. Beggars can be resentful, but they can't be choosers.
