No. I know what Google is, I provide links all the time. Where are your links that show Greece's debt problem is a result of their military spending from 1967 to 1974?
Also, short term overspending is to cover war costs is riddled throughout American history. They have almost nothing to do with the US's current problem, so your analogy is already false.
