Re: Greece in flames
I was in Crete a months ago and three people died in a forest fire not far from where we were, but there was not that much publicity.
Its a great tragedy and not only do I feel so very sorry for those who have lost family, but I also shake my head at the mentality of people who would set fires deliberately and cause such stupid destruction.
There is a lot of speculation about unscrupulous developers causing these fires, but the widespread number of fires in the Peloponnese can hardly be all down to these people. Its difficult to know what to do to people if they are proven to have set these fires deliberately in the hottest driest summer in Greece for years.
I know what i'd like to do to them, but I shan't say.
