17 Greece would be able to increase its influence in the Middle East and in South Eastern Europe, also enhancing its strategic value within NATO. Since 1981 Greece has been a full member of the European Economic Community, and then of the European Union. This was a historic decision for the fate of the state that provided Greece with the opportunity to be among the elite states of the Old Continent. However, due to Andreas Papandreou’s anti-Americanism, Konstantinos Mitsotakis’s and Konstantinos Simitis’s ultra pro-European stance and Karamanlis’s choice to keep a distance from the USA, Greece ended up ‘putting all its eggs in one basket’.

The Greeks followed a pattern familiar from other countries. Disillusioned with modernization, disgruntled voters dumped PASOK’s Kostas Simitis and elected Kostas Karamanlis, ND’s leader, in 2004. He promised to improve the economy, stamp out widespread corruption, and promote a more transparent and effective state administration. Rising unemployment and inflation, inability to reform higher education, an inept response to wildfires in 2007, and failure to control protracted violence following the shooting of a 15-yearold student in December 2008 lowered expectations and damaged his standing at the polls.
