13. These criminals have no regard for health and safety laws anywhere

There are laws down here, such as that you can't dump dangerous chemicals in the water but the mining companies do it everyday. They're an international law unto themselves (The law of the Mighty).

Look what BP did right here in the USA. What Exxon does in Nigeria.

Greece has so many areas that are in such pristine shape that people regularly live to be over 100. Letting these criminals operate there would be a disaster. Money is God to those corporations. Have you seen the film Erin Brokervich? It's about what a good old American company did to our own citizens and the only thing extraordinary about that case is that they were finally apprehended but only after hundreds, thousands maybe (I don't recall) became ill and died over the years. They come in, poison your land, poison your children and then deny any responsibility. They do that everywhere they go. And by the time you might be able to get them thrown out, it's impossible to undo the damage. They shouldn't be allowed a foothold anywhere except their own countries where their own citizens can take care of them.

I have no sympathy
