Abandoning the pretense that the so-called “refugee crisis” is anything more than military colonialism, Turkey’s Islamist tyrant responded to military setbacks during his invasion of Syria by discarding his aid agreement with the EU, while the media under his control urged Muslim migrants to head to Europe.
And they have.
The invasion has begun again.
Tens of thousands of refugees from Syria and other countries were massing on the Turkish borders with Greece and Bulgaria last night, hurling stones at guards and trying to cut through razor wire.
An estimated 30,000 migrants gathered at checkpoints after Turkey’s president claimed to have ‘opened the doors’ to allow as many as 4 million asylum seekers to leave the country.
One of the first stand-offs came on Friday night at Pazarkule, north-eastern Greece, where hundreds of migrants – including Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, Pakistanis and Moroccans – demanded to be let in.
Most of these are not Syrians. The only thing they have in common is religion and its tradition of conquest and colonialism. They’re not fleeing a civil war. They’re mostly military-age young men invading Europe. And anywhere they can get to from Europe.
Greece and Bulgaria are obviously outmatched. And these countries were the traditional targets of the Ottoman Empire.
The current number of migrant invaders is estimated as being much higher than 30,000.
More than 76,300 illegal migrants exited Turkey towards Europe as of Sunday morning, Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu claimed.
“The number of migrants leaving our country via Edirne is 76,358 as of 09.55 a.m. [0655 GMT],” Soylu posted on Twitter.
If there’s a role for NATO, it’s not in Syria. It’s protecting Europe from this Islamist invasion.
Turkey’s decision comes amid frustration that the EU and Nato countries, including Britain, have failed to provide enough support in the country’s opposition to President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war. On Thursday, 33 Turkish soldiers were killed by Syrian forces, dramatically raising tensions in a war in which Turkey and Russia are backing opposing sides.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan insisted he would not back down, adding that his country could not handle another wave of refugees from northern Syria. ‘We opened the doors,’ he said. ‘We will not close those doors. Why? Because the EU should keep its promises.’
Syria doesn’t have much of a functioning military. Turkey is really fighting Russia and Iran. And its proxies. It’s Jihadist vs. Jihadist and they’re welcome to fight each other Alien vs. Predator style. But Turkey wants European and American help.
And it’s using this invasion as overt blackmail.
There needs to be a naval blockade to stop the invasion. And this is an area where military assistance would be a good idea. These migrant invasions are WW3 in slow motion. And they can be stopped with little danger at Europe’s borders. If they get inside, then we end up moving closer to days when a European version of ISIS is in control of Europe’s arsenal and resources.
