Afghans Headed For Europe
Word of Angela Merkel's welcoming stance is having its expected result. People are leaving Afghanistan heading for Europe. Current rate works out to 1 million per year.
About 3,000 Afghans are now coming into Iran every day illegally. From there, they continue to Turkey, where they board boats to the Greek islands of Lesbos or Kos and then cross the Balkans to Northern Europe.
This will drive much higher chain migration as Afghans, Iraqis, Syrians, and people from assorted African countries send money for their relatives to come in even larger numbers. Border barriers would stop it.
The Gray Lady thinks it may get worse. Of course it will get worse. Way worse. Border barriers could stop it. But the elites are opposed.

The first victim of mass migration is the local elite, who are usually replaced violently.
"Border barriers would stop it."
No Randall. I've been trying to tell you that. No border barriers can ever stop it. Don't be such an idiot, please. That's enought of that shit. Cut it out. Stop it.
You continue to repeat dogmatic mantras as if they were true, and I've given you many reasons why. Reasons you have not refuted yet. Again, you have a great example in the Mexican-U.S. border. It's a fucken swiss cheese underground. There are no impassable borders in the world, and even if there were that won't stop terrorism and migration, but only understanding the causes; However it is now too late for you to understand even simple things, because I've been telling you so much and so often how stupid you are, that even considering that I could be right has become too much for you to bear. I'll be happy to explain things over again and in a different way, cordially and slowly like I would to a little kid, but you will not ASK, because it would make you feel castrated. Am I right?
Check it out -
The Soviet Union and the former Communist countries of Eastern Europe seemed to be able to control their borders quite easily. East Germany didn't have much problem keeping its border with West Germany closed. They killed you if you tried to cross. Seems to have worked. Even though Israel is located very close to the fighting in Iraq I notice that no refugees are entering Israel. For that matter no refugees are entering Saudi Arabia. Hungary has already reduced the flow of refugees into its country to near zero.
Apparently border barriers work quite well in the case of Israel. The Israelis do not seem to have gotten your memo explaining the futility of border barriers. But I'm sure that if you send an E-Mail to Netanyahu explaining all this to him he will immediately dismantle Israel's border barriers.
So your point is to go back to Cold War era mentality. The more they can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more they control all the people. They have done a damn good job on you and many others.
"The Soviet Union and the former Communist countries of Eastern Europe seemed to be able to control their borders quite easily."
Many didn't have an incentive to flee from the Soviet Union, as Eastern Europe countries were pretty fucked up; a little like today's Detroit. Where would a Soviet citizen like to have escaped, back then? Bulgary? Rumania? Poland? Albania? Gimme a fucken break man.
"East Germany didn't have much problem keeping its border with West Germany closed."
Yes. Grant you that. Probably the tightest border in the world back then, nevertheless some people managed to escape, and eventually the border collapsed into one of the most beautiful and memorable events you and I remember. So East Germans were not only able to escape, but to tear the fucken thing down. HOW EXACTLY DOES THAT SEEM TO HAVE WORKED? Today Germany is one once again, -last time I heard-... and by now what used to be Eastern Germany is pretty well off and not very different from West Germany. Something like that would happen in the world, but as I have already explained, it has to be done gradually and regionally. Nothing bad would happen from doing away with so many borders, as you dogmatically believe. You're just too afraid. Of course it would take a few years for the world to become economically homogeneous but it would take much less than all these wars on terrorism, on crime, on drugs, on immigrants, on refugees that just seem endless. Do you see an end to all this unnecessary conflict based on inequality? Inequality is the basis of war and crime. Why not aim for a fairer more equal world. And please, understand that by equality I'm not talking communism. I am talking about equal opportunities for all.
"Even though Israel is located very close to the fighting in Iraq I notice that no refugees are entering Israel."
Jim, come on. Who in their right mind would like to go into fucken Israel, specially if you are a Muslim. I take it you didn't think this very carefully, did you?
"Apparently border barriers work quite well in the case of Israel."
Oh really? Fuck, I don't know what kind of "Israel" and about what world you're talking about. Exactly how many Jews have died last month from attacks? Last year? Last decade? Is that what you call "work quite well? You got pretty low standards on what supposedly "works". You probably think that all those dead from schools and university shootings in the U.S. is "not too bad", right? I again take it you didn't think this over very carefully, did you?
"But I'm sure that if you send an E-Mail to Netanyahu explaining all this to him he will immediately dismantle Israel's border barriers."
Why would I want to send and E-Mail to that criminal? There's nothing you can explain to him simply because he's a politicians and he is a god-believer. How can you ever make anything understood to somebody that narcissitic?
Think Jim. Use your brain a little.
"Afghans Headed For Europe"
Yes. And Russia is taking the Middle East from the USA. In the Islamic world, Russia has excellent relations with all countries, even Saudi Arabia. So what do I say? Check it out.
Check It Out, you're being absurd, to the point where you have no chance of persuading anyone. You think anyone, anyone at all buys this, "It's not worth doing unless it's perfectly effective!" standard?
Do you lock your front door at night? I'm sure somebody could pick the lock if they spent enough time at it, or just cut through the door.
Randall, it'd be great if you upgraded your site to Disqus comments. It's difficult to follow any sort of discussion without methodically returning to previous posts. Some of the hardcore readers will do it, but you're limiting the audience that way. It'd also be easier to filter out loud a-holes on their soapboxes. At the very least it would only show a snippet of their comment instead of the pompous essays that choke up the comments section. Anyone who wants to write 1000+ word comments, start your own frickin blog instead!
