The latest deployment of Greek, French and Turkish warships in the east Mediterranean is probably only military sabre-rattling.
But I wonder whether the EU would actually be able to effectively defend its political interests in the region by military means if it comes to the unlikely case of an escalation. How well prepared are the armies of the European member states in comparison to the Turkish forces for such a local conflict?
I read a comment on Twitter, saying that Turkey is much more battle-tested and better prepared for a conflict. I doubt that this statement is actually fact-based, but it got me wondering.
