This past weekend, the Greek press was absent from a very important moment, leaving the public in the dark for two days.

Several Greek analysts and politicians have expressed concerns that overseas observers tend to overlook or not to understand the severity of the perceived territorial threat and tend to misunderstand the conflict as a trivial issue over just a name.
Tons of theorists have invested years of their research in order to list the basic human emotions. But there comes a day in your life where these emotions of yours get completely out of control and will probably stay in this abnormal state until we have the final result of the 2016 US Presidential Elections. Regarding the result, may this confusing state will be permanent, but I don’t want to scare you yet.
