    The Germans threw Greece a financial noose, the Americans - an armory. Gone are the days when they said that "everything is in Greece." In my opinion today only bondage.

        It is a question or a statement? Judging by the sign, the question is, but why to me? Read the comment.

      Combat combatant fighters do not exist and never existed. Now, apparently, the poor Greeks will have it, as everyone knows.

        Well, of course

        and here, too, all non-combat
        A heavy Su-27 combatant fighter from the Russian Knights air group never existed. In general, the whole world is an illusion.

              Pilots of combat regiments, these happen, but not planes. I do not like Pushkin, an unsuccessful example.
