The insistence of the Greek navy to proceed with the acquisition of its three Knox-class frigates cannot be held against the Greek American community, of course.
The Greek navy’s worst decision, however, was to turn its lease agreement into clear-cut ownership (after all the shortfalls were obvious), which permitted the upgrade of the weapons, armor, and equipment suite, but also meant a long-term commitment to ships that were clearly inadequate and cost-ineffective.
This in turn meant that the Greek navy could significantly increase its capabilities in the short term, permitting itself enough time during the next 10 years to organize a well-structured replacement program, while the emerging AAW technologies would also be mature enough and less risky to invest in.

 USS Missouri (BB 63)
The fourth MISSOURI, the last battleship completed by the United States, was laid down 6 January 1941 by New York Naval Shipyard; launched 29 January 1944; sponsored by Miss Margaret Truman, daughter of then Senator from MISSOURI Harry S Truman, later President; and commissioned 11 June 1944, Capt. William M. Callaghan in command.
The battleship put to sea 27 January to serve in the screen of the LEXINGTON carrier task group of Mitscher's TF 58, and on 16 February her flattops launched the first air strikes against Japan since the famed Doolittle raid that had been launched from carrier HORNET in April 1942.
Now the only U.S. battleship in commission, MISSOURI was proceeding seaward on a training mission from Hampton Roads early 17 January when she ran aground at a point 1.6 miles from Thimble Shoals Light, near Old Point Comfort.

As Novgorod, in effect a republic, was threatened by the Swedes and the Teutonic Knights, Alexander was invited to lead the forces of the city.
Since all battleships had been built with armored conning towers, but almost nobody ever actually used them because visiblity from them was so poor, Russian officers, including Admiral Rozhestvensky, were wounded or killed from standing on open bridges as the Japanese shells hit.
On the first night of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, when the Japanese force, with the battleships Hiei and Kirishima, stumbled into a thrown together American force of cruisers and destroyers, precious minutes were lost while armor piercing shells were substituted for the high explosive shells that were intended for bombarding Henderson Field.

Turkey is of the view that the excessive rearmament of the Greek Cypriot side poses a threat to the atmosphere of peace in Cyprus and adversely affects the efforts for the finding of a solution to the Cyprus question.
The Russian Federation, which has previously sold heavy weapons to the Greek Cypriots and is now aiming to sell anti-aircraft missiles to them, has responsibilities arising from its position as a Permanent Member of the Security Council and a signatory to the OSCE documents relating to arms transfers.
Supporting the Kasoulidis statement, Greek government spokesman Dimitris Peppas expressed confidence that his country would join the Cypriots' diplomatic efforts to clarify the misunderstanding which has arisen in connection with the Russian-Cypriot transaction causing uproar in the West.

 US - Greek Naval Relations Begin: Antipiracy Operations in the Aegean Sea
In the wake of the 1823 Greek naval defeat at Bodrum, however, the Greek Navy turned to privateering to support the revolt, and attacked merchantmen-including American merchantmen.
Such tactical operations eased the Greek pirate threat to American commerce, but did little to eliminate its root causes: The breakdown of law and order in the Aegean; the desperation of the Greek rebels fighting for their nation's freedom from the Ottomans; and the reluctance of the European naval powers to intervene.
The suppression of Greek piracy and the achievement of Greek independence in 1830 did not, however, mean the end of Greek-American naval relations, nor of US Navy operations to suppress global piracy.

When Rome became Christian, the principle that "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28), as the Prophet Isaiah had once seen all mankind coming to Jerusalem, reinforced the principle of common humanity.
The arrangement of these lists thus follows Bryce's principle of universalist ideology, centering on Rome but extending to similar to ideas outside of the Roman world.

All were on orders from their respective foreign offices and military commanders to refrain from giving aid and comfort to the Greeks and Armenians who were considered enemies of the Turks.
