17. Not that it's going to happen...

 

But you may have the wrong idea about the Greek position in such an unlikely case (i.e., that Turkey breaks openly with NATO - we agree, very unlikely). Athens might well be next on the line to cut a protection deal with Moscow. And if anything, Turkey aligning with Russia practically guarantees no further moves on the Orthodox south of Cyprus, which is very much a Russian billionaires' plaything. It may open the way to new negotiations. Not that I'm thrilled with the potential Turkish-Russian axis, if it actually happens, but new peace moves would be a lot likelier than any new Greek-Turkish conflict over Cyprus. Hm, kind of seems the logical next step for Putin to endeavor in his makeover as Dr. Peace.
