US-Greece Military Deals Strengthen, More American Bases Seen

The United States is looking to extend an annual Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement to five years and put more military bases in Greece as Turkey is pulling away from Europe and even ready to work with the Taliban after the fall of Afghanistan.

Turkey – a member of NATO as is Greece – had sent troops to fight the terrorists in

Afghanistan but President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is cozying up more to Russia and away from the western alliance.

Called a “pillar of stability” by the United States when the polar opposite Radical Left SYRIZA – which had been anti-American was in power – and now under the friendlier New Democracy, American interests are getting closer with Greece.
