Greece this summer faces the worst wildfires. Some evidence indicates that most are arson, thus a terrorist act. Greece, to be prepared to fight these severe asymmetrical challenges, must create two crucial security bodies:
1-Greece must have a National Security Council; It will staff with civilians and military personnel. The body's head will be the National Security Adviser, who will report to the prime minister. This defense body will advise the prime minister and help the defense and foreign ministers design and execute national security/defense and foreign policy.
2-Greece must establish a Homeland Security Council; It will staff with civilians and security personnel, the body's head will be the Homeland Security Adviser, who will advise the prime minister. This security agency will assist the Homeland Security Department in designing a coherent security policy for Greece. Moreover, Greece must train the police and firefighters to deter and fight this kind of asymmetrical threat. Also, the government needs to create a separate firefighting force focusing on forest fires assisted by the Fire Department. This body must collect and analyze actionable intelligence to deter threats and protect the state. Overall, the Homeland Security Council and the Department of Homeland Security and its partners must engage in a comprehensive counterterrorism policy and approach to prevent foreign and domestic terrorism and more decisively confront the terror and other asymmetrical threats to Greece.
