When I grow up i will become an arsonist!

Have you ever been in a place where the sky was grey-brown, the air full of smoke and the sun - a dim spot?
I had this experience this Summer.

Disastrous fires that swept through southern Greece in August, destroyed more than 97,000 hectares of forest. The fires in the Peloponnese peninsula south of Athens burned over 170,000 hectares (420,000 acres) overall, including agricultural land mostly covered in olive groves. The fires have gutted hundreds of homes, forcing thousands of villagers to blacken hillsides. More than 800 homes and nearly 800 stables were destroyed, according to the Greek Ministry of Environment, in blazes that raged from August 24 to September 3. Ancient Olympia, birthplace of the Olympics, was in danger too, but firefighters managed to keep it safe.

Firefighting aircraft from several countries were helping Greece tackle devastating forest fires.Water-bombing aircraft from France, Italy and Canada were in action, with more international aid expected. Thousands of Greek firefighters were being supported by 20 water-bombing planes and 19 helicopters. At least 11 countries were helping Greece fight the fires with planes, helicopters and commando firefighters.

There are many reasons for the fires. First of all the "unprecedented meteorological". Furthermore, some "organised plan of extermination of country". That is to say, the enemy that accommodates always us. And finally, a lot of people are asking to have a look at a certain map of auctioning of "Ionias Road", the new motorway of north-western Peloponisso. Do you want to see from the areas that it passes? Gastoyni, Amaliada, Tower, Ancient Olympia, Anemochorio, Samiko, Zacharo, Figaleia, Cypresses, Dorio, Megalopolis, Krestaina etc. So, someone who would try to find an answer would easily understand that the work of manufacture of street that became destruction of environment would bring important delays in his completion. All these before, because now, as from marvel (!) the ground became cheaper and reactions changed orientation. The work of manufacture of street became easier.

The Greek government said that villas and towns must not be allowed to grow in the area, as often happens in these cases in Greece!

In my opinion all of us we will be guilty for the fires until i will see be touched one of the arsonists and be condemned the fair and the clean hearing process.
Your own conclusions…
