I accidentally saw your forum searching through google and registered just for a reply. I was born Greek and live in this country all my life. Whoever
you are, with all the respect, you are generalizing and there is nothing more dangerous than that. I agree that many people throw trash but I totally
disagree that there are no people that care. I care, I make a difference and so do others. And I don't know if your 5 years give you a clear
picture, but I can tell you for sure that there are a lot of people that care, recycle and pick up others trash in the street or in the beach.Bad
people and good people exist in every nation and culture. By generalizing you pass an image for a whole nation that it is, at least to me, offending
to the people that care.
Regarding the fires, I trully can't tell you if the muslims, the USA, the E.T. or whatever else anyone imagines, is behind them - BUT - I can tell
you for sure that somebody is - and it is not Greek people that burn mountains just to build up homes. Your opinion is wrong. Facts prove otherwise:
1.over 200 fires at the same time all over the country including the capital
2.fires started in mountains in places not reachable by car or other means, there are no roads there.
3.so far numerous sophisticated devices were found that were used to start the fires, some of them remotely activated by cellular phones, currently
under investigation by the police
4.over 60 people officially dead - the number, in my opinion will reach at least 100
5.while all means were trying to eliminate the huge numerous different fires in Peloponnese at least 20 more fires started in different places in the
6.check this satellite photo and decide for yourself:
this shows only a part of the country
Yes, we do have work to do as a nation, but there exist some of us that make a difference - that care.
This is an organized crime with a very sophisticated and well established plan.
Whoever is behind this carefully designed everything down to every detail:
1) highest temperature season
2) very strong winds this season also
3) high season - eveyone was on vacation
3) carefully selected areas to start the fires in mountains with very reach plantation that spread very quickly down to the villages
4) while every resource was used to put out the huge fires, new ones were starting at 3 and 4 a.m. in defferent places (planes do not fly at night to
Thank you for your time reading all this. I cannot decribe with words what I feel in my heart about all this situation. So many people died for
nothing not to mention the devastating effect in nature. I pray for a miracle...
Forgive any mistakes in the language.
