It actually doesn't prove jack **** and your entire anti-American arguement had nothing to do with the topic at hand.

You see... your prob is that you think I'm all acting anti-American...... lol I AM NOT. I just want to explain that Greece is not the only country that does what it does when it comes to national security. I want to make a point that any country would most probably do the same. You got it now? I just referred to US because the majority of the people here are from there. It could be really any country...

Show me one goverment that does not stupid things and is all fair etc... you wouldn't because simply there's no such.

No not every country would do the same because they would quickly go check the guys credentials before locking them away for 128 days...

This whole thing was a dumb decision on Greeces part and I gaurantee this was their way of trying to flex some muscle in light of all the **** that has been going on there with riots and whatnot.

That's great they got released. That is some serious time in jail for some pictures seems like the Greek goverment just overracted a bit too much.

[QUOTE="Tessellation"]think the security forces have authority to use deadly force and its true.  balfe1990

There's an identical sign on a few acres of land around 30 minutes from me. It's the property of the Irish Army(lol).Surely they must be trying to hide top secret alien discoveries and will shoot your face off If you try and poke your nose in!!Nope, all they're guarding are a few sheep and liberal scatterings of cow sh!t. And people take pictures all the time. The signs are just a formality.

If they put notices but not follow them is their problem. People should still abide them.

It's like the other time I went on a trip to the US. They took us to San Diego, especially to Sea World and some towns around it and near the border with Mexico. We passed a border station and for some reason in a part of the building that had this huge windows overseeing the border there where these notices saying that it was prohibited to stand there to watch the window and that we should just pass by without stopping or face detention. I had no f*cking idea of why but I did as instructed by the signs. Just as I passed that area I heard a commotion behind me, someone actually stopped to watch the view on the windows and three policemen jumped him and took him away through a door.

Obviously I don't know if in the end they made a show out of him but the lesson is simple, if a sign says something is illegal, it's illegal.

Which makes the whole thing seem suspect to begin with. They kept them for so long under charges of spying on their military yet they released them on 5,000. They seem to have sold them out cheap in the end.

Well this thing is very... sad? They went there with "military grade spying equipment" However when asked to show proof about it they could not. And its not like there was many pictures that had some kind of military related thing in them out of the 100+ photos they had (and a few sec video footage). I mean they a clearly spies! I mean why else would they release them for only 5000 euro each. No like someone else said its most likely the greece goverment flexing their muscles to try to show that they still have some kind of power.

[QUOTE="Tessellation"][QUOTE="Vaasman"]That isn't what I asked for you raging idiot. Show me an article where America detains tourists for photographing the exterior of their bases.

Not someone accused of being a terrorist in Macedonia. That is irrelevant to this discussion.

LostProphetFLCL

the only place i can think of that really happening is near ''area 51'' but you have warning signs n if you ignore them is up to you.

This is probably not true, but can't they shoot you on sight if you get too close to Area 51?

They are authorized to use lethal force. I don't think they've done so yet. Most of the crackpots who tried to get in have complied with orders to keep out or have been escorted out. I imagine if someone made an a** of himself and dared security to shoot him, they probably would.

Greece is gonna Greece.

Good to hear. No doubt the pictures were contained by the government, as just about everybody wants to know the state of Greece's military :P

Not really surprised it took this long. The Greek Government's incompetence has turned Athens into a protest zone.

[QUOTE="V3rciS"]

Man I have the feeling that you're not really aware of what your goverment does in reality, especially the CIA. You guys overthrow goverments around the world and acting like a world police and yet you butthurting here about freedom of speech for these 2 morons to be stupid enough for doing something that's against the law? Sounds like hypocrisy to me.

V3rciS

Sounds like you are trying to change the subject becuase you were wrong.

This has nothing to do with American politics, yet now you're trying to turn the discussion that way.

I am not, this guy is saying how unfair the greeks were to lock these guys, I am saying that any nation would do the same when it comes to national security and in case of USA the things would be much worse. So enough of hypocrisy around here please... people just butthurting over the matter because these 2 guys were game devs... would they be doing any different job no one would even pay attention. They feel they have to defend the devs no matter if what they did was against the Greek law.

Are you guys actually surprised that the Greek government is this dumb? Remember, we're talking about the country that the rest of Europe had to bail out because of their ridiculous unsustainable entitlement programs. Age 55 guaranteed retirement and a month paid vacation each year, guaranteed by the government. Anybody who expected more intelligence out of Greek law needs to brush up on their world events.

Time for a revenge in the form of a Arma 3 mission where the objective would be to free Czech prisoners from the hands of evil Greeks... :P

edit: make that "evil Greek militants".

Surely it deserves some kind of easter egg, at the very least.
