Greek people are mad at Prime Minister Mitsotakis and his lack of leadership, as the country is burning for the second time this summer. Greece has lost much of its forests to wildfires from Alexandroupolis in the northeast to Viotia, Parnitha, and numerous other places. As this hell is taking place, the prime minister cannot even get on the phone with the ministries responsible for public safety. Instead, he wastes his time hosting Zelensky and promising him things that, if delivered, will jeopardize Greece’s national security. His ineptness was graphically pictured in a cartoon in the daily Kathimerini (below).
Zelensky: “Half of our country is destroyed!”
Mitsotakis: “Luckily, we are doing a lot better!”
As this callousness by Greek leadership is widely manifested for all to see, there is plenty of other callousness to go around. A prime example is the situation at Alexandroupolis, the Greek port in the northeast, near the Turkish border, that has served for the past two years as the primary supply line for military and other materials shipped from the US to Ukraine. Alexandroupolis has turned into an American military base with great importance, likely to surpass Souda Bay if we believe statements by Ambassador Tsunis, former Ambassador (and foremost warmonger) Pyatt, Senator Menendez, and several lobbyists (like Zemenidis), all of whom have visited Alexandroupolis repeatedly in the past 18 months and spent time there making useless speeches.
QUESTION TO ALL OF THEM AND ESPECIALLY AMB. TSUNIS: You have been watching Alexandroupolis burning for over a week. Did it cross your mind that you should ask the American military (those stationed there and others) to offer assistance? Did it cross your mind to ask for help from other American bases in Europe (in Italy, Germany, etc)? What exactly do you think your job is? To sit on a chair and listen to stupid speeches about the significance of the Alexandroupolis’ port? What impression do you give to the people of Greece about how the US views the alliance with Greece? Is it truly that one-sided, only take and give back nothing?
And finally, let me give you a short history lesson: About fifteen years ago, Alexandroupolis was about to become a significant hub for Russia, intended to bypass the Bosporus straights and help export Russian oil with a pipeline from the Bulgarian port of Burgas ending in Alexandroupolis. If this project had succeeded (it failed because of the CIA’s attempted assassination against the then-Greek PM Costas Karamanlis), what would you think Russia would do in case wildfires threatened Alexandroupolis?
Let me tell you what Russia would do: In less than 24 hours, Russia would send its monstrous firefighting Beriev planes, and the fires would be extinguished in no time. The same firefighting airplanes have helped Greece many times in the past decade. Just two years ago, the Beriev miraculous planes were assisting Greece.
PHOTOS ABOVE: These photos may be our answer, as they show Tsunis visiting Alexandroupolis two years ago dressed for vacation and wearing sandals....
But this year, because of the useless American sanctions in a war that has already been lost and has destroyed the European economies, and because of the slavish attitude of the globalist puppet Mitsotakis, Greece did not even bother to ask for help from Russia for such a simple humanitarian issue…
And Alexandroupolis kept burning as the hapless “Ambassador” Tsunis watched the fires approach the “precious” port, supposedly crucial for the US and NATO efforts…
