Shoebat.com has warned about the move of a million migrants towards Europe from Syria as a result of the conflicts and human displacement. This is promoting fears that 2020 will be the year of another refugee crisis and such is being warned about by the AP, as Turkey and Russia bicker while the marching continues on.
The offensive has triggered the largest single wave of displacement in Syria’s nine-year war, sending nearly 950,000 people fleeing to areas near the Turkish border for safety. Ankara sealed its borders in 2015 and agreed to step up efforts to halt the flow of refugees under a 2016 deal with the European Union.
Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy warned that the movement of migrants to the West could continue if the situation in Idlib deteriorated further.
“Some asylum seekers and migrants in our country, worried about developments, have begun to move towards our western borders,” he said. “If the situation worsens, this risk will continue to increase.” However, he added that there was “no change” in Turkey’s migration policy.
Saying “significant numbers” of migrants and refugees had gathered on the Turkish side of the border with Greece, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis tweeted that no illegal crossings would be tolerated and that Greece was not to blame for the “tragic events in Syria.”
Police and military border patrols were deployed on the Greek side. At one point, Greek police said they used tear gas and flash grenades to move the crowds back after an estimated 450 people massed at the Turkish side of the Kastanies border. (source)
Let us be clear, this is NOT an “invasion” at all. Turkey and all of Europe wants this.
The migrant crisis of 2016 ignited a wave of nationalism that resulted in the overthrow of the current paradigm concerning refugees, migrants, and saw the return of late 19th century and early 20th century racism.
Given how Germany’s economy is falling apart, and how Germany runs Europe, a further migrant crisis will trigger even more nationalism, and possibly a transition to militarism in different forms.
We are witnessing something very profound here. This is history in motion, and the events of last century are repeating, and so few notice or seem to care.
We are standing on the edge of another great war, and yet those same persons who said “never again” and claimed they would denounced Hitler, saying they do not understand why anybody ever supported him, are now in a modern context praising the same people and events that lead up to his rise.
