Typical Greek lack of prepareness and reliance on the EU to bail them out. The Government blames someone other then themselves (arsonists) for a known problem they did not address. The political appointees responsible for the welfare of their citizens are pathetic. The only reason Greece exists after all this time is because it has nothing to offer of interest to any invader. No natural resources, a depleted fishing industry, a corrupt government, poor education system, and it is filled with back stabbing, lying, lazy people looking for handouts.

It's unfortunate, but your right to a degree. They had a thriving tourist industry until the Euro came in and then "holey shit" did the prices increase and the service dive bomb... I've seen more arrogance on one tiny Greek island with a failing economy, than anywhere else in Europe.
