Greece, Cyprus and Israel to set up joint force ....

Post by kenneal - lagger »

According to this article Greece, Cyprus and Israel are to set up a joint force to protect the soon to be built pipeline from their eastern Mediterranean oil/gas field to Italy. It seems strange to me that they shouldn't rely on the new European Army to look after this; after all the EU is paying for some of it and Greece and Cyprus are EU members. Perhaps the Greeks are worried about Germany pinching their oil to pay for all the Greek debt to German banks.

It's a strange source for such a story as well - China.org.cn - from The Powerswitch Peak Oil Daily.
