Greece isn't a multi-ethnic state; there are no competing national identities within it borders and no threat of ethnic cleansing.

Sorry about the delayed reply, I don't seem to get notifications for second-level replies.

I'm aware of the immigration crisis. If Golden Dawn came to power, we wouldn't see rival Greek and Immigrant armies, like in Yugoslavia. You'd probably see the ongoing anti-immigration violence heighten a bit, but the country would break apart in ideological civil war before XA could begin some kind of mass-murder campaign. If we're looking for historical analogies, Spain in the 30s fits the Greek worse-case scenario a lot better than the breakup of Yugoslavia.

Now you're triangulating. The argument was that Greek unrest could lead to American occupation. Now you're saying comparisons to Serbia are invalid because the Spanish Civil War is a better model.

This is a disingenuous way to conduct conversation and I won' t do it anymore.
