One thought on “Whoniversaries 4 November

  1. Some points and questions.

    * The US and Soviet Forces were out of Korea a year before the start of the war. The war caught the South Koreans flat-footed – if there had been a military build-up on both side they might have put up a more successful resistance.

    * The fighter planes were intruding and the survey ship intended to intrude into Greek Territory. Do you think countries should not control their national territory? What should a Greece without fighter planes do when Turkish jets intrude into their territory?

    * What military build-up? Modernization is not equivalent to a build-up. Also, the Turkish Armed Forces are modernising too.

    One final question. You have been speaking out against Greece’s tanks, fighters, and submarines. However, in your last post you speak out against modern tanks, fighters and submarines. What point are you actually trying to make?
