    Yiannis Baboulias, "Greece and Turkey Are Inching Toward War"

    Such a pronouncement about two NATO countries would have seen inconceivable just a few years ago, but it is another facet of populism: in both countries populists are deepening a rare military crisis; and in the Greek public opinion, there is a very real fear that the country is sleepwalking toward a conflict it doesn’t want.

He is, however, being heard by an increasing number of policy-makers and analysts. Mody essentially argues that the political divide in Europe may now be hard to heal without a major shift in focus back to national priorities (reads in 6-7 min).
