EU Toughens Against TTIP as Top German Lawmaker Blasts Anti-Democratic Deal

Adding yet another voice to the growing chorus of European activists and government officials who oppose the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the U.S. and EU, the president of the German Bundestag, or parliament, has threatened to vote against the so-called "trade" agreement due to its lack of transparency and democratic legitimacy.

"I see no chance that the Bundestag would ratify a trade agreement between the EU and the USA without involvement in how it came together or any say regarding alternatives," Norbert Lammert said in an interview with Germany's FUNKE Media Group on Wednesday.

Lammert agreed with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that all the relevant documentation "must be available to the governments and parliaments of all members of the EU." He said he "will insist on that."

‘Game-changer’: European Parliament votes in favor of ‘dropping charges’ against Snowden

The majority of European Parliament members have voted in favor of asking constituent states to grant protection to whistleblower and former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who has described the move as a ‘game-changer’ and a ‘chance to move forward’.

MEPs have urged EU member states to “drop any criminal charges against Edward Snowden, grant him protection and consequently prevent extradition or rendition by third parties, in recognition of his status as whistle-blower and international human rights defender,” a European Parliament press release stated.

EU NEW CONDITIONS FOR SERBIA sanctions against Russia before the New Year or no chapters ?!

Serbia has received the most serious ultimatum to the European Union! Brussels authorities in Belgrade gave a deadline of no later than December 31, 2015, impose sanctions on Russia and fully align its foreign policy with EU policy.

From Brussels they say that if Belgrade does not impose sanctions on Moscow, halt accession negotiations and eliminate any financial assistance to our country.

As he so informed sources say, European officials have sent a message to Serbia that this time he will not turn a blind eye when it comes to relations with Russia.

- Attitude Brussels that Serbia must harmonize foreign policy with the EU. This means that if you do not bring a blockade of Putin's regime, Europe block the opening chapter, and further negotiations. Belgrade has made clear that in that case there will be no pre-accession funds - sources say.

The map shows the flow of thousands of migrants across the EU
In the last three years more than 1.3million people have arrived in the Eurozone to seek asylum.

The majority of those who make it to Europe are coming from countries like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan which have been devastated by conflict.

The eye-opening graphics show the true scale of the exodus, with movements plotted daily and each dot representing 25 to 50 people.

Perhaps even more shocking is that the numbers seen streaming into Germany and other Western European countries represent only a small fraction of those displaced.

EU lawmakers block opt-out from GMO rules

European Union lawmakers have rejected a draft law that would have allowed countries to ban certain genetically modified food and animal feed even if the produce was authorized by EU authorities.

Lawmakers fear the move could force a return to border controls to keep GMO produce out of some countries. The decision to reject the law was taken on Wednesday by an overwhelming majority.

The environment spokesman for the assembly's biggest political group, Peter Liese, said that "we need to avoid chaos for consumers and farmers."

He warned that "having national bans would mean re-introducing border controls for foodstuff and feedstuff."

He made the statement as debate is heating up ahead of a membership referendum.

"Norway actually pays as much per head to the EU as we do, they actually take twice as many, per head, migrants as we do in this country, but of course they have no seat at the table, no ability to negotiate," he told parliament.

Shotguns have 'virtually sold out' in Austria as citizens rush to buy arms amid fears of a massive influx of migrants, dealers claim

Weapon sales are soaring in Austria as citizens of the small Alpine nation become paranoid over the numbers of refugees crowding into their country.

In a country of 8.5 million people, there are now an estimated 900,000 firearms in homes.

And gun dealers report that it is women driving the sales rush. This year alone, police say 70,000 guns have been sold.

'Virtually all shotguns are currently sold out, because you need no permit for them', said Thomas Ortner, spokesman for an arms dealer in Upper Austria.

Strategic Engineered Migration as Weapon of War

Researchers have discovered a very interesting fact related to the use of social networking sites. It has come to light that calls on Twitter for refugees to travel to Germany have mostly come from the US. The time spent practising in other countries has not been in vain – from Iran during the 2009 presidential elections to Egypt and Tunisia, where the role played by social networking sites in mobilising the population was considerable.

What we are seeing now is the practical implementation of theoretical calculations of a strategic nature. Such strategies have been under development for a long time. One of them is a study by the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University that bears the name “Strategic Engineered Migration as a Weapon of War“, which the author also uses for the title of this article. The study was first published in 2008 in the Civil Wars journal. Using a combination of statistical data and case study analysis, the author of the work, Kelly Greenhill, provides answers to the following questions: can refugees be a specific type of weapon, can this weapon only be used in wartime or in peacetime as well, and just how successful can its exploitation be? On the whole, Greenhill answers these questions in the affirmative.

A New War May Be Brewing in the Balkans

It’s been nearly 20 years since the Dayton Accord put an end to the bloody war in the Balkans, which killed over 140,000 people after the Yugoslav government collapsed. However, there are rumblings in the nation of Bosnia and Herzegovina that are threatening to reignite the conflict.

As part of the Dayton Accord, two independent entities were created within the nation of Bosnia: the Bosniak-Croat Federation and the largely Serb Republika Sprska. The government in Sprska is planning to unveil a referendum on the anniversary of the Dayton Accord. There will be a single question on the ballot that will ask their citizens if they support the legality of their current union with the Bosniak-Croat Federation. Many are calling the question a veiled independence referendum that will give the president of Sprska permission to obstruct the laws and institutions of the central government.

Islamic invasion pulls trigger: Europe now scrambles for guns

A Czech TV report confirms that long guns – shotguns and rifles – have been flying off the shelves in Austria, and Austrians who haven’t already purchased a gun may not have a chance to get one for some time. They’re all sold out.

And those arming themselves are primarily women.

“If anyone wants to buy a long gun in Austria right now, too bad for them,” the Czech newscaster says. “All of them are currently sold out.”

He cites the Austrian news outlet Trioler Tageszeitung as the source of his report.

“We cannot complain about lack of demand,” Stephen Mayer, a gun merchant, told Trioler Tageszeitung.

AMERICA & EU, Say ENOUGH! - Human Locust on the way!

Yesterday,at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.

Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we women are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.

Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases. If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children.

They abandon their children with pharmacy staff with the words: “So, cure them here yourselves!” So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.

EU Parliament rejects amendments protecting net neutrality

The European Parliament has voted for a package of EU internet traffic regulations - rejecting all amendments concerning net neutrality. The move was slammed by activists and companies alike, who say it will allow to give some faster internet access than others.

Opponents also say the move will stifle growth, as not all network traffic will be treated equally. They believe the rules will create “fast lanes” for so-called “specialized services with quality requirements.” This would subsequently mean network owners would be able to offer zero rated services and offer net neutrality exceptions.

Southern Europe is a new disease ‘hot zone’

While global attention has been focused on strengthening health systems in West Africa in the aftermath of the Ebola outbreak there, a new wave of tropical infectious disease is threatening southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

The unprecedented appearance of tropical diseases in southern Europe in recent years has been well-documented. Dengue fever appeared on Madeira off the coast of Portugal in 2012, and chikungunya arrived in Spain this year. Malaria has returned to Greece after being eliminated in the 1960s, and West Nile virus has gained a foothold throughout southern Europe. These infections are transmitted by mosquitoes that now inhabit the region. Schistosomiasis, a parasitic blood fluke infection transmitted by snails, just made its first recorded appearance on the island of Corsica, while outbreaks of opisthorchiasis, a liver fluke that causes bile duct cancer, have occurred in Italy.

This is one of the unintended consequences of forced migration, caused by a seemingly intractable state of war in the Middle East.

Barcelona Threatens To Print Parallel Currency, Madrid Seethes

Over the next six months, Barcelona’s left-wing city council plans to roll out a cash-less local currency that has the potential to become the largest of its kind in the world. While the socialist mayor's official reasoning is 'to boost economic opportunities for local businesses', perhaps there are somewhat less altruistic motives behind the move, such as encouraging people to embrace cashless currencies. It appears the war on cash has moved from one of words to actions (as it is likely no coincidence that most of the local community currencies that have been launched so far are in purely digital format, as would Barcelona’s.)

Blair Inc - A book review

Europe and money are two of the big themes of Blair Inc., a conscientious effort by Francis Beckett, David Hencke and Nick Kochan to uncover the New Labour leader’s activities post No. 10: Europe because the authors claim that Blair still longs for a world role, one the European presidency would provide; and money because they say he has made rather a lot of it since 2007.

It was an old American friend who first alerted me to the Blair family’s fondness for the folding stuff. After seeing Cherie being interviewed on US TV soon after Tony became Labour leader, she told me: ‘My mother had a phrase for people like her – “She’ll go grasping into the grave”.’ Twenty years later, the authors of Blair Inc. tell us that the couple now own 36 properties. Their portfolio includes the former Bucks home of Sir John Gielgud that the couple acquired for a reported £4m in 2008 as a sort of personal Chequers. As far as Beckett, Hencke and Kochan can establish, given the complexity and secrecy that surrounds his affairs, Blair himself is now worth around £60m.

Strategic Engineered Migration as Weapon of War

Is there also some general reason for their frantic desire to flee so far from their homeland? Wealthy relatives who have already settled in the European Union, perhaps? Or stories about welfare benefits on which they will be able to live comfortably? After all, to make such a journey they have to pay handsomely for the services of smugglers. According to some reports, these smugglers take between $4,000 and $10,000 to transport a single refugee from Syria or Libya to Europe. Even if this person has wealthy relatives abroad, receiving money via bank transfer is impossible in war-torn Syria. Organising transportation on credit clearly involves certain guarantees, especially considering that the boats often sink in the Mediterranean.

Who is providing guarantees that encourage hundreds of thousands of people to rush from other continents to Europe and why?

The main goal of the project, according to a council spokesperson, is to boost economic opportunities for local businesses and traders.

The idea is for local stores and residents to be able to exchange euros for the new currency at a one-to-one parity, and use it to purchase products and services at a discount or with other kinds of incentives. But it doesn’t end there: the new parallel currency may also be used to pay certain subsidies, taxes and local services such as public transport, reports El País. Municipal workers could also receive part of their salary in the new money.

The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Merkel’s Faustian embrace of Turkey

If the EU, under Merkel’s direction, accedes to Turkey’s demand for setting up safe zones in northern Syria, then that has ominous implications.

Turkey is pressuring Germany to create “safe zones” inside Syria as a “price” for alleviating the EU’s refugee crisis. It’s a Faustian bargain that could escalate the Syrian conflict, where NATO forces could end up pitted against Russia’s military.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hot-footing to Istanbul last weekend was capped with a U-turn regarding Turkey’s much sought-after membership of the European Union. In a surprise move, Merkel announcedthat she was now in favor of pushing for Turkey’s accession to the EU, when only a few weeks ago she had reiterated her opposition to its membership.

The chief tax collector was fired because of allegations of extending VAT payment deadlines on television ads. To her defense, Savvaidou said that she did so in order to ease the burden on many businesses that have to pay tax on television advertising. These businesses, she said, employ thousands of people and thousands of families are dependent on them.

Realistically, the Ukraine should have stayed in the realm of similar countries where it had its value and there was a demand for its goods. There is nothing that the Ukraine can offer Europe. It will be stripped of its agricultural products, the ones deemed reasonable, and that’s unfortunately, pretty much the end of it.

Senior State Department Official Urges EU to Adopt Working Definition of Antisemitism

The U.S. is urging the European Union to adopt a working definition of antisemitism, similar to the one used by the State Department, a senior State official said in a conference call with Jerusalem U on Monday.

Defining antisemitism is “an important tool” for combating the rising antisemitic trend in Europe, where — the official, who was not speaking on the record, warned — several smaller Jewish communities, which have existed for 500 to 2,400 years, are on the verge of extinction.

The State Department definition of antisemitism includes certain attitudes toward Israel. In what are commonly referred to as the “3 Ds,” a phrase coined by Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky, the definition says that demonization, delegitmization and holding Israel to a double standard all constitute antisemitism.

"Why is it that the efforts of, say, our American partners and their allies in their struggle against the Islamic State has not produced any tangible results?" Putin asked, explaining "Obviously, this is not about any lack of military equipment or potential. Clearly, the United States has a huge potential, the biggest military potential in the world, only double crossing is never easy. You declare war on terrorists and simultaneously try to use some of them to arrange the figures on the Middle East board in your own interests, as you may think... It is impossible to combat terrorism in general if some terrorists are used as a battering ram to overthrow the regimes that are not to one's liking.

He continued that the question is to how to help the refugees "without infringing on the interests of the residents of the countries where the refugees are moving. Meanwhile, a massive uncontrolled shocking clash of different lifestyles can lead, and already is leading to growing nationalism and intolerance, to the emergence of a permanent conflict in society."

Netanyahu absolved Hitler of the final solution by placing the blame for the Holocaust on the Palestinians

Why is Netanyahu consistently attempting to displace blame for the Jewish genocide in Europe from the Germans onto the Palestinians? Of course, Netanyahu throughout his career has been determined to shatter the Palestinian national struggle. To discredit it, and to justify his campaign, his violent campaign against it. But with what’s happening in Jerusalem Netanyahu’s fanaticism has risen to the surface.

The plan for the end of Europe: the new USSR

By Jon Rappoport

One of the basic principles of elite Globalism is: the end of borders, the end of separate nations.

The European Union was built for this purpose, step by step, out of the ashes of World War 2: a super-bureaucracy and political management system for the whole continent.

But that was not enough. There had to be a way to wipe out separate and sovereign nations at ground level, to irrevocably change the landscape.

It is open borders; floods of immigrants; “replacement populations”; an influx of people who have no intention of accepting the customs and way of life in their new homes...

Beneath the mask of the Human Rights industry: Prominent British Jews Advocate Increases in Refugees

As a former member of the Communist Party, Sir Stephen Sedley is an unlikely champion for human rights. Nevertheless it is an industry that has been good to him, so it was not surprising that his signature appeared on a letter in The Times calling for Britain to admit thousands more “Syrian refugees.” (Sedley is a prominent posturer among those discussed in Tobias Langdon’s “They posture, you pay.”)

Russia’s counter-sanctions painful for EU — Hungary FM

"As we are part of the European Union, we must share the common views," Szijjarto said in an interview with the Russian television channel Lifenews. "Implementation of the Minsk Agreements on Donbas in full may become a prerequisite for the lifting of sanctions. We hope this will happen soon, as Russia’s counter-sanctions are very painful for Europe," he said. Szijjarto underscored that Hungary agrees with the viewpoint of German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the necessity of cooperation between the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

NATO Begins Dress Rehearsal for Europe-wide War

More than 35,000 troops are participating in NATO’s month-long Trident Juncture war games, along with some 140 warplanes and 60 warships. The militaries of 30 different capitalist governments aligned with the NATO alliance are involved.

Massive NATO drills are taking place in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The drills are designed to prepare the NATO powers for large-scale strategic warfare outside the boundaries of the NATO countries, according to NATO officials.

The main focus of the NATO drills is to prepare for comprehensive strategic warfare spanning broad stretches of the Eurasian landmass, comments from NATO officers have made clear.

“Trident Juncture 2015 will demonstrate NATO’s new increased level of ambition in joint modern warfare and will showcase a capable, forward-leading Alliance,” NATO’s command center said in a statement Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is about one thing, and one thing only: war with Russia.

As with the US, just because an action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing NATO could do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that NATO, prodded and poked by the US government, won't do it.

And why war, and why now?!?

The economy is collapsing around our ankles; and rather than the US government admitting that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing was yet another epic fail by the private central banks which comprise the Fed, this coming, global war is the only thing they can think of to misdirect the anger of the American public at this collapse away from its designers,and toward a trumped-up enemy which is now being utterly vilified by the corporate whorespondents.

And if you want a very real-world demonstration of just how "brilliantly" NATO is working, please take a look at their joint occupation of Afghanistan with the US, 14 years on; the current state of that country tells it all.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

Europe Secretly Starts Imposing TTIP Despite the Public's Overwhelming Opposition

The terms of Obama’s proposed TPP ‘trade’ treaty with Asian countries won’t be made public until the treaty has already been in force for at least four years. The terms of Obama’s proposed TISA (Trade In Services Agreement) with 52 nations won’t be made public until the treaty has already been in force for at least five years. Obama’s proposed TTIP treaty with European countries has been so successfully hidden, that even the number of years it will be kept from the public isn’t yet known. Hello, international fascism — all in secret, until too late for the public to do anything.

Europe Slowly Turns Conservative as Anti-Immigrant Party Wins Swiss Election

Once the liberal bastion of the world, it appears that Europe’s political discourse is slowly shifting to the right. As Middle-Eastern refugees continue to flood into the continent, more Europeans are beginning to view the migrants as a threat to their culture, and are increasingly turning to nationalist movements for solutions.

This is especially true for Switzerland, where the anti-immigration Swiss People’s Party, won the largest share of seats in the national parliamentary election over the weekend. The SVP exceeded expectations by winning 29.5% of the vote, which added 11 seats for the party. They now hold 65 of the parliament’s 200 seats, which is the most any party has held in nearly a century. The Liberal Party (which contrary to its name, is actually a center-right pro-business party) managed to gain 3 more seats.

NATO Launches Massive Exercise to Prep for War With ‘Not Russia’

NATO today launched its biggest single military exercise in more than 13 years, involving some 36,000 troops in the Mediterranean Sea, simulating a war spanning from Sicily to Spain and Portugal against a major invading European superpower, who officials are insisting is definitely totally not Russia.

The exercise is planned to last through November 6 and will focus on support a “Spearhead Force” that NATO intends to install along the Russian border, nominally to fend off a Russian invasion of Eastern Europe. The predictions of a Russian invasion have been growing out of NATO for a couple of years, and have justified significant increases in spending and military deployments into otherwise calm nations in the east.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question in this article which is never asked, but SHOULD be, is why in the world would Putin want to attack Eastern Europe at this time?!?

And the short answer is, he wouldn't.

He's got his hands full in Syria, and is working like a demon to get the Russian economy back on track, in spite of US and (crumbling) European sanctions.

Russians and Europeans understand what it is like to have a war on your front lawn, and have had quite enough of that, thank you very much.

The folks doing this horrific warmongering are primarily the American political leadership, and its military.

Against the Clock: Pentagon Pushing Ahead With Nuclear Buildup in Europe

While Russia is eradicating the terrorist threat in the Middle East, the US and NATO are busy with modernizing their European nuclear arms aimed at some unknown menace and pressuring the EU, particularly Belgium, into spending more on US weaponry, founder of Agora Erasmus movement Karel Vereycken told Sputnik.

It is naïve to believe that the Obama administration, lambasted by both right and left-wing parties in the US for its inconsistent policy in the Middle East, is perplexed or distraught. Undoubtedly, it has a well-thought-out foreign strategy and Europe is one of its targets.
In his earlier interviews to Sputnik, Karel Vereycken, journalist, founder of the Belgian political organization Agora Erasmus and editor-at-large of the French newspaper Nouvelle Solidarité, called attention to the fact that the Pentagon and NATO are pushing ahead with the project of re-nuclearization of Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because pushing the renuclearization of Europe is one of the most ham-fistedly, pigheadedly stupid things the US government could do right now is, unfortunately, becoming a nightmare reality for Europe.

Russia is absolutely no threat to the US, unless the US government creates a massive provocation against it, which the US government seems hell-bent on doing with these actions.

Russia's military campaign in Syria has demonstrated that it has some really world-class hardware and software, to which the US military has no real answer at this point.

And, unlike the US, in Russia, there is a tacit agreement agreement between weapons makers and the Russian government that when equipment is deployed in real-world battle conditions, that equipment is deployed fully functional.

Moldova’s PM says he is sure pro-European government will be dismissed

"A conspiracy is being plotted against Moldova. The last step will be done by lawmakers - they will vote for my resignation at their next meeting," he said. Earlier on Tuesday, the leader of the opposition Party of Socialists, Igor Dodon, who has the biggest faction of 24 seats in the 101-seat parliament, announced plans to initiate government resignation. "We will find the votes necessary to register our initiative to send the cabinet to resignation. We will spare no effort to have these authorities stepped down," he told TASS. The initiative has already been supported by the leader of the Party of Communists and former President, Vladimir Voronin, who has 19 seats in the parliament. "We see what is going on the country. Strelet is not doing what he is supposed to but is protecting his business run jointly with the arrested former Prime Minister [Vlad] Filat. That is why we are ready to vote in favour of sending this government to resignation," he said.

Major No to GMO by Majority of EU States

Monsanto and the GMO agribusiness cartel have suffered a major new defeat as two-thirds of the 28 EU member states have opted for a full ban on GMO crops according to the terms of new Brussels rules allowing national decision on the toxic agro-technology. The bans across the EU greatly expand the EU acreage off-limits to GMO from the previous somewhat chaotic EU procedures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we reported yesterday, Brussels is now planning to change the rules so that member states cannot opt-out of GMO. Gee, I wonder who gave them that idea?

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

They are (in chronological order) Iran, Libya, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kosovo, Yemen, Pakistan, and now Syria. Latterly these efforts have been in the name of the War on Terror and the attempt to curb Islamic extremism.

Palomares nuclear crash: US agrees Spanish coast clean-up

Almost 50 years after four nuclear bombs fell on the Spanish coast after two US military planes collided, American officials have signed a deal to clean up contaminated land.

None of the bombs detonated in January 1966, but three fell around Palomares and a fourth was found on the sea bed.

Highly toxic plutonium was spread over a 200-hectare (490-acre) area.

On a visit to Madrid, Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to finalise a deal on disposing of contaminated soil.

ISIS Fighters Could Gain LEGAL Entry Into EU, Thanks to Europe’s New Schengen Visa Deal for Turkey

Turkey is set to pick up a few big sweeteners from Brussels if ‘tries’ to stop refugee flow into Europe – even though it’s nearly impossible for Ankara to actually come good on its lofty promise to ‘contain’ the large refugee flow through Turkey into the European promise land.

It’s true that Turkey has accommodated roughly 2 million Syrian refugees, and is said to have spent over nearly $8 billion on the crisis thus far.

What they are not telling us however, is that Turkey has been the primary facilitator of the Syrian conflict, mainly by hosting terrorist and ‘rebel’ training and equipping for tens of thousands of fighters since 2011, as well as providing a continuous safe haven for terrorist fighters – freely coming and going over its southern border with Syria.
