Thrust of argument: Diane Johnstone writes 'The United States has been relatively discrete during this crisis, but Washington's will is known. Greece must stay tightly within the European Union, for geopolitical reasons. Just look where Greece is, and what it is: an Orthodox Christian country with traditional good relations with Russia, located on the Mediterranean not so far from 'Putin's Russia'. Greece must not be allowed to drift away. Period.
Another question that has been totally overlooked: is it possible for a NATO member country to shift policy in a way contrary to U.S. interests? Is it free to move toward truly friendly relations with Russia? Greece has seen a military putsch in the not so distant past. The command and control of NATO member countries is closely monitored by the United States military'.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Paul Craig Roberts tells us: 'A member of the British Army said that 90% of the lads in his unit voted to leave.
They voted exit because they do not believe they should be involved in Washington's wars. He said that his unit agreed that the wars are dictated by Washington, via Brussels, and not by the British people. He also said that that the soldiers were 'taking their own pen' to the ballot box, because 'they only use pencils at the polls and they could be rubbed out and changed.''

Removal of resistance: It's an interesting report - particularly the fear some soldiers have that the ballots can be rigged in such a fashion. Their fears don't appear to have been proved right in that regard - the Brexit vote won and nothing was able to change that.
Unification: Perhaps some of the many people with a narrow view of the situation surrounding the 'remain' or 'leave' debate should spend a little time in quiet contemplation of what these soldiers are reported to feel. Is it really very safe to allow a situation which distresses these soldiers persist? I'm not saying that's necessarily a reason to 'leave the EU' - but these people surely must start to accept that the highest priority for us to deal with is the control the United States apparently has over our country, certainly is seen to - by our soldiers, apparently - and we have to ask ourselves what sort of country we are, how free we are and how safe we are and whether or not steps must be taken to deal with the insecurity those soldiers appear to agree we are suffering from, something they, on some of the front lines, have to face without lies or sugar coating, unlike your average MP, telegraph or guardian journalist or facebook like button pusher.
