The political and personal animosities that it served to stimulate, as well as the constitutional crisis that it helped to precipitate, combined to bring the Greek state to the brink of national collapse. The Role of Greek Politics When hostilities began in 1914, the question of intervention or neutrality became a burning issue in Greece. In the beginning, both Constantine and Venizelos agreed that the uncertainty of the international and military situations dictated a policy of neutrality. It soon became apparent, however, that Greece's treaty obligations to Serbia would make a policy of neutrality difficult.
12 These developments lead to the conclusion that an attempt was being made to force the Greek government into general elections which would presumably be manipulated by Anglo-French personnel in Greece, thus ensuring the emergence of a regime dominated by Venizelos and his Liberals. Whatever the technical diplomatic considerations might have been, the blockade soon proved to be an effective punitive and coercive device, prompting Greek Foreign Minister Stephen Skouloudis to present to the Allies and all neutral states a bitter protest against such highhanded tactics.
