They're both in Nato, as such this cancels itself out. If Turkey were to leave the alliance, then this would shift into Greece's favor and they could send more equipment (and probably would do so eagerly to save some bucks). As such, the best hope is that Erdogan gets voted out this spring and his successor starts more constructive talks with Greece instead of constantly sending them some threats.

Hmm, is that actually how it would work? Even if Turkey is the aggressor and attacks Greece, they (NATO) wouldn't help Greece because Turkey is also in NATO? That sounds a bit mad, Lol. Still, I don't think Turkey has any serious intention of attacking Greece and it's just Erdogan being a dick as per usual and hamming things up for the elections, once they're over I expect him to shut up.

It's never been tested (and hopefully never is) as to what happens if one Nato member attacks another. I'm theory Article 5 would apply to the nation under attack, but the aggressor could jam up the political machine (and likely would in the lead up to the attack). Presumably though the aggressor would be turfed out of Nato
