The list of Anatolians indebted (and often in arrears) to Assyrians by far exceeds that of Assyrians in debt to Anatolians." This probably also would have been the case with the Phoenicians and Phoenicians in Greece.

This expulsion was the result of Greece's occupation of Smyrna and attacks upon the Turkish nationalist armies led by Mustafa Kemal (Kemal Ataturk).
In this effort, Greece was led at first by the liberal nationalist Eleftherios Venizelos, and encouraged, but not supported economically or militarily, by the Western Allies, especially England under the leadership of Lloyd George.
Smith is admirably detached and dispassionate about the role of Britain, which encouraged Greece out of a mixture of romanticism and imperialist calculation, and as a result of the same calculation, failed to carry through in supporting what it had encouraged.
