I’m unhappy it cut my trip short but look forward to returning to Athens on my road to recovery,” he said.

  1. LET SEE… IT MUST BE THE RUSSIAN , IRANIAN, GREEK MONKS, OR MANI ANARCHIST TERRORIST WHO UPENEDED PYATT’S BICYCLE PROBABLY ESCAPING FROM GREECE.AFTER ROBBING HER COUNTRY OF THEIR CULTURES, MONEY, HONOR AND NOW POLLUTING THE PRISTENE WATERS OF CRETE WITH EXXON MOBIL OIL FACTORIES!

    OR MAYBE ..GETTING OUT OF TOWN , IN THE EVENT , SOMEONE OTHER THAN TSIPRAS, OR MISTOTAKIS ARE ELECTED THE NEW LEADERS OF GREECE!

    THERE SEEMS TO BE AN EPIDEMIC OF INJURIES TO THE NATO LEADERS …SINCE, A WEEK AGO ANASTASIADES ALLEGEDLY BROKE HIS LEG …WHICH MUST HAVE BEEN A RESULT OF THE MOBSTERS OF THE U.S. REMINDED HIM WHO HE WORKS FOR!

    THIIS WOULD NOT BE THE FIRST TIME PYATT ESCAPED FROM A COUNTRY THAT HE DESTROYED …LIKE THE UKRAINE ..WHERE HE PERSONALLY ORGANIZED AND COORDINATED WITH STATE DEPARTMENT DEPUTY …VICTORIA NULAND THE OVERTHROW OF THE ELECTED LEADER OF THE UKRAINE ..AND CREATED THE CIVIL WAR IN EASTERN UKRAINE …AND THE SEPARATION OF CRIMEA BY THE ENTNIC RUSSIAN POPULATION FROM THE UKRAINE TO RUSSIA ..BASED ON A LEGAL REFERENDUM OF THE PEOPLE OF CRIMEA!

    THESE ARE TRYING TIMES FOR PYATT…WHO WILL BE THE LEADER OF GREECE…IF CREEKS DO NOT BOYCOTT THE JULY 7TH ELECTION …AND ELECT ANY OF THE RULING PARTY CANDIDATES LIKE TSIPRAS AND MISTOTAKIS!

  2. Told you Michael, don’t come to the Mani if your an enemy of Greece, bad things happen….We will vote Sunday after Church, Armed this time….Mitso is bad like the rest, but better than the previous….Next Election We Will Run We Will Win.

    “Mani Oxi Place For Devils On Bikes”

    Don’t Come Back Ya’ll

  3. Tell my families up there.that I am a little disappointed in them .since, they usually threw the emissaries of the Persian Empire into wells ,when they demanded from Leonidas ..the land and water of Sparta!

    I would put everyone on full alert, since, wherever this degenerate Pyatt travels either there is a regime change , or Church change, or oil rigs making money for foreign countries to pollute the waters of the Pristene waters of Crete and Cyprus..to threaten the entire economy of their cultural and historical coastlines and beaches!

    So.knowing this guy with Menendez…they are probably scoping out some property for another U.S base in your area.good luck!

    While I would not vote if I was Greek in Greece unless you were on the ticket to de legitimize the corruption of the entire ruling parties of Greece, I do understand , that it is essential that Tsipras be removed because.of one basic and important reason ..he lied to the people! ‘

    You cannot re elect a leader that lies … and renege on his promises to the Greek Populace while in office!

    If so ,,,Greeks legitimize Public corruption to hold office!

    Therefore, as you said, you really have no choices, and hope that the elected leader will remember what happens to liars in office! And what ever promises the elected leader makes ..he should be made accountable to fulfill or be removed from office!

    Pavlo;..take care of yourself …and the “patriotica” up their in Mani!
