British rocker Sting has come out swinging at unnamed “world leaders” calling them “half-men” and their actions “barbaric,” while heaping praise on Greece for “showing the way” and showing the world “how to be civilized.”
His remarks came while he was in Athens for 2 historic concerts at the ancient Herodion theater in Acropolis at an event organized by Amnesty International.
“Thank God for Greece because you have shown the way.
You have shown how to treat refugees when other people are building walls. When children are being taken from their mothers and put in cages, you are acting with compassion and generosity and commonsense,” he said.
“Because our so-called leaders, a sad parade of half-men, cowards, have not got the solutions… Once again Greece has shown us how to be civilized.”
