Washington probably thinks that current Greek government is ready to fall
by system failure
It is so hard someone to believe this. It's another good indication of what Greece has become, one more time, to the powers that always determined its destiny. Barack Obama announced the successful destruction of Syrian chemicals but didn't bother to mention Greece, even among "allies":
US President Obama said that his administration was grateful to the joint mission of the United States and its Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that helped to “rid the Syrian regime of its chemical weapons” in a White House statement, published on Monday.
“We also thank our close allies and partners – Denmark, Norway, Italy, Finland, Germany, and the United Kingdom – for their key contributions to this mission, and we appreciate the assistance of Russia and China,” Barack Obama said in the statement.
After all the assistance of the Greek puppet government, concerning the destruction of chemicals, and mostly, its tolerance to the fact that Cape Ray proceeded to the hydrolysis without any observers on board who could certify the successful completion without environmental implications close to Crete's shores, the US president apparently thought that there is no reason to mention a "taken for granted ally":
According to our information, we understand that the Mediterranean is used by the US because the method of hydrolysis on board will be conducted for the first time and will be essentially an experiment. Additionally, scientists admit that they don't know the consequences to the 35 year old ship by the chemical substances. Cape Ray will be accompanied by navy forces from Greece, Turkey and Germany to protect it from a terrorist attack.
During the press conference, Vangelis Pissias, one of the organizers of the mission, criticized Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Evangelos Venizelos, stating that he doesn't know what is going on in his country and he doesn't speak with the American officials who behave like preponderant [over country's decisions]. The mayor of Sfakia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sfakia), Pavlos Polakis, stated that, according to information from the mission members, hydrolysis is taking place just 75-100 miles from Crete's shores.
According to the activists' website (http://destruction-of-chemical-weapons.blogspot.gr/), a coast guard boat was discreetly following the boats of the mission during the first hours of sailing, while subsequently they were under surveillance by a drone and a helicopter.
Not to mention the fact that the Greek government rushed to align with the US sanctions against Russia, paying a high price in such a disaster scenery for the Greek economy (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/08/the-most-faithful-puppets.html).
Yet, Obama thanked his "ostensible" ally, Germany (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/07/who-is-considered-ostensible-ally-by-us.html) and others, even "rivals" like Russia and China for their contribution, but again, Greece was nowhere among them!
Either we should start to believe that Greece is eventually considered an ostensible ally by the US rather than Germany, or that Washington (and Moscow) consider current Greek government ready to fall with no chance to regain power, so, they are waiting for the next one to make their moves.
There is no reason to adopt the first explanation since the Greek government followed faithfully every willing of the US, NATO and European "partners" in various issues (Greek debt problem, Ukraine, Middle East, etc.), therefore, the most probable explanation is the second one.
