Where does Greece stand in geopolitical terms? There may be no easy answer, but it would be a good idea if some of the better minds of this country began to think about it because things may very well change, and dramatically too.
An attack by Israel against Iran before the US elections in November in order to trap President Barack Obama into supporting such a campaign cannot be ruled out.
Right now one of Greece's biggest strategic allies is Israel, along with the lobbies it influences. The Israelis provide Greece with valuable help and vice versa, even if it is help that cannot always be made public. But it is a sign of maturity that the political establishment has played this game cleverly and has liberated itself from past taboos. After all, realism needs to be the guiding principle of the national interest.
The United States is also an important supporter of Greece and does not want to see it turn into a failed state. Washington is trying desperately to convince Berlin that beyond the fiscal data, there is also geopolitics. But the Americans do not have money to invest in Greece, so they apply some pressure to Berlin and try to keep the markets in check, but their room for maneuver is very restricted. Of course they could help in the maintenance and replacement of military equipment, as the Greek armed forces are cutting it very close to the bone.
