ooc: Reposted from 'aiding our comrades in Greece'. To make clear what I'm doing, military training does not involve massive airlift for the training forces, we don't need that many of them in place to be effective and they can stay on military bases. Slipping into these and sabotaging the runways isn't so easy. The humanitarian supplies require far more transport space, and are going to civilian airports.
ic, secret: Message to the king of Greece. A very large shipment of surplus military hardware, including mortars, artillery, radios, medical supplies, gasoline, and small arms for your forces will be arriving in one week at Eleusis in six liberty ships. The ships are under Cypriot flag and registry. Counterintelligence has broadcast a weakly coded false message implying that such a shipment will be arriving in two weeks at Piraeus. Given the recent events in Greek ports, this seemed like a reasonable precaution, however it will probably only work once. Future shipments will rely on firmly securing the ports.

Greece appreciates the aid and agree that those precautions were nessecary.
Ongoing policies in Greece, from minutes of White House cabinet meeting:
1) Supply humanitarian aid and assistance in impressive quantities. Extend this to the recently pacified areas.
2) CIA to seek and use human intel among the populace in the cities and as far into the countryside as it can reach. Coordinate this intel with the Greek.
3) Use ship-based Voice of America and BBC radio broadcasts to deliver popular music and dramatic programming and world news to the Nations around the North-Eastern Adriatic.
4) American Army tacticians and logistics experts to work with Greek Army on not getting killed in the field.
5) Encourage the Greek gov't to secure a part of the Port of Eleusis. This is smaller than the Piraeus and disruption here should cause less economic hardship. It's also easier to secure. Secure a portion of the port for military use only. No non-military are allowed onsite. Generally speaking the military doesn't use union stevedores to unload their supplies anyway. You don't want untrained men handling ordnance ;)
6) Continue direct military aid.
7) Continue training efforts.
8) Establish a small commission who's purpose is to reunite families separated by the civil war. See that their work is publicized.
