Damn, that's really sad. All that history lost. :(
Nobody knows so far what REALLY resulted into the tragedy.
A sadly missed opportunity to garnish some of those bountiful carwash funds to protect and preserve a national icon!
Assuming that it was an accident [caused by negligence?]. Of course, NOBODY really is responsible!
The government who underfunded it for years is responsible, they should have had better fire prevention and working hydrants.
That is the obvious answer. But which government [which regime, which political party, which president] will willingly own the responsibility AND admit the negligence?
None of them would, but it's obvious this is a long standing problem so it's the fault of all the governments, not just one of them.
Instead of spending money NOW [for renovation and obviously for the corrupt to benefit from the expenditure] the masses should insist on maintaining the shell of what was a museum - as a CONSTANT REMINDER [of the type of politicians Brazil has].
Braz has lots of $$$$$$$$$$$'s for sports.
Pyro is a great way of covering your tracks.
There's no knowing what the commies had previously looted for their own personal gain.
More looolooo please!
