I'm confused by the rules regarding triggering of this event - can anyone else explain them? The table on R13 says Triggered by AL#2 and AX#2, and lists its effect as "MET Greece, CW reinforcements". However the MET table suggests that AL#5 is triggered by a crisis on the Greece track, and the rule at 4.5 says nothing specific about when the event is triggered, but says MET Greece is triggered by AL#2 and AX#2.
Assuming the events table is completely misleading, I interpret this as meaning that once AL#2 and AX#2 occur, the MET Track marker is activated, and when it reaches a crisis, then AL#5 occurs and the CW reinforcements listed on R31 are available (presumably in the Nile River Valley) on the turns indicated. Does this seem correct?
(There is a similar confusion regarding AL#6.)

MET Greece is triggered when AX#2 and AL#2 have occurred.
MET Greece will trigger AL#5 when it reaches crisis; units on the track are returned (possibly with loss) and the reinforcements listed for AL#5 can occur.
Why would you send troops to MET Greece? Each turn the track is active, the ES marker is increased by 1, which is a positive Allied outcome. But it is hard to hold for long once the Germans are committed.
Syria is similar, but in this case the British will eventually want to commit enough forces to drive the situation less than 0, deactivating the box and triggering the reinforcements for AL#6. If Syria goes to crisis, it isn't deactivated, but does give ES -1 each turn it is in crisis.
