Refugee crisis: European leaders blamed for record high deaths in the Mediterranean | The Independent – John Gelmini

Dr Alf makes interesting points about the so called Refugee Crisis and the EU’s response.He also makes a point about the recent BREXIT vote and wonders whether the result might have been different with different handling of that Refugee Crisis.

In the first place, the problems in Syria came about because the West wanted to build an oil pipeline which President Assad refused to allow. That triggered to so called civil war, the injection of Western special forces, the actions of ISIS funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait and the training, support and resupply of the Syrian rebels by Turkey, UK and USA who have collectively decided to Balkanise Syria into 3 enclaves, replace President Assad and then move onto Iran.

The invitation by President Assad to Russia to assist militarily to stop his country from being dismembered has meant increased fighting and more refugees.

By encouraging the refugees to come Angela Merkel, the most powerful woman in Europe, has created an industrial sized people smuggling and identity theft business which is bring in economic migrants from 180 different countries. Her failure to do anything about the results of the maelstrom that she and stupid and complacent EU leaders have created has caused the present problem which the Gulf States and Turkey have further exploited for their own ends.

BREXIT was going to happen anyway because the EU failed to deliver on its original promises, on the Greek financial crises and on jobs.

They have said one thing and in secret done another and even the most stupid people instinctively know this to be the case.

I’m rather surprised at this article published in the New Yorker. It seems to sympathize with Frauke Petry, mother, scientist, and leader of Germany’s most successful nationalist phenomenon since the Second World War, the AfD.

Petry is portrayed as an intelligent, rational leader. For me, the author should have taken a stronger position either for or against the far-right AfD. The article was rather wishy washy, neither objective nor subjective reporting.

I take strong exception to both the Far Left and the Far Right because for both the end justifies the means. Leaders of both the Far Left and Far Right, like Petry are presented as populist leaders but they are generally surrounded by extremists fanning fear which sometimes leads to violence. It’s important to remember the last Far Right government in Germany – the Nazi Party led by Hitler.
