Greek Fires – Act of Terrorism

Atlas Shrugs, has posted that the fires in Greece are the result of Terrorist Acts. She sites a source that has determined that arson devices with cell phone triggers have been found in areas where fires were started. Satellite imagry has shown that within the course of an hour several fires started over a wide range of areas.

As Atlas Shrugs, the main stream media is non-reporant on this developing information.

Panagiotis Efstathiou, a senior Health Ministry official, said 49 bodies were taken to hospitals.
“We still have missing (people) who haven’t been found. We have about 10 missing,” Zaharo Mayor Pantazis Chronopoulos said, adding that soldiers had begun checking burned houses for more victims.

So many fires breaking out simultaneously in so many parts of the country cannot be a coincidence,” Karamanlis said in a nationally televised address. “The state will do everything it can to find those responsible and punish them.” ABC News

Frank asked the most obvious question that the mainstream media deliberately ignores. Who set Greece afire? This comes from Skai tv station in Greece, a very unbiased source of news:

The police, the armed forces and the Greek antiterrorism authorities have found arson devices in Greek forest areas which are triggered by mobile phones.

Satellite images reveal that within a space of a single hour, many fires appeared in different locations of Greece. The plan was to make the fire brigate forces overstretch.

It is certainly a terrorist attack. George Karatzaferis, the leader of the right wing party, LAOS, called the day, ‘Greece’s 9/11’.

Who did it is anyone’s guess. It could be Greek anarchists or radical groups of Greece’s northern neighbours which have claims on northern Greece. We should never forget that there will be general elections in Greece soon. Who might have an interest from an image of a weak and overstretched state mechanism?

The BBC makes no mention of it in their rather long(winded) piece here: Greek fires threaten ancient city.

A 65-year-old man was arrested and charged with arson and multiple counts of homicide in a fire that killed six people in Areopolis, a town in the southern Peloponnese, said fire department spokesman Nikos Diamandis. Separately, two youths were arrested on suspicion of arson in the northern Greek city of Kavala, he said. Their parents were also to face charges, he said.

No names have been released.

  1. Waste of your oxygen indeed! How about pure and simple GREED as the motive for these fires? An act of greed so that the land can be used for development? Totally unlikely? I’d like to point out to you that we have a long tradition in that shameful practice, unfortunately.

  2. Do you have information available on land development plans in the areas being ravaged by this fire? Ihave seen nothing that would support the need to create a massive blaze as this. And ultimately is not terrorism a form of greed?

  3. THIS IS NOT AN ACT OF GREED!! The land affected by many
    The fires were aimed directly at the main energy corridors of Greece.

    This could be an Al-Qaeda attack. The devices used to set off the arson boms are of the same type as those used in the Madrid Bombings (which caused the downfall of the concervative government, and the socialists one the elections)

    Why does nobody in the mainstream media (other than the Greek mainstream media) explore the possibility of an Al-Qaeda attack, or other possibilities??

  4. Romerio, I feel this is an act of terrorism, possibly domestic, but it could be foreign. I know Al-Qaeda has used devices like these, but the target does not seem to fit their MO. Additionally the technology and instruction to setup bombs such as these, is fairly well circulated amongst terrorist groups these days.
    I am curious as to information you may know of that would be beneficial to the readers, since the main stream media is either withholding information or cannot obtain information.
    1. Do you have any information on those being investigated or already arrested, names, backgrounds and motives.
    2. Can you provide information of the “main energy corridors of Greece”. Locations, type of resources etc.
    3. Is your local media providing any insight into specific terrorist groups being investigated for involvement in this.

    I would love to get more local information of the situation as the Mass Media market is incapable of providing anything useful.

    Thanks
