GREECE IN PICTURES: Paradise burns like Hell

dog 1

With the world's attention on the tragedy unfolding in Greece, as its people  battle multiple fire fronts  in what has been an unprecedented heatwave, we thought it necessary  to collate the images of this inferno to remind and call political and civil leaders to finally address the factors that contribute to the fire disasters, every summer without fail:

Deliberate arson, Poor town planning, Red tape/incompetent bureaucracy, insufficient resources, climate challenges to name a few.

These images will be repeated in 2022, unless the country's political leadership deals with the challenges once and for all.
