Há muitas razões para a inundação de refugiados na Alemanha, mas elas devem-se basicamente às guerras perpetradas pelo “Ocidente”. No entanto, apesar das aparências, as elites políticas europeias não estão realmente preocupadas com este êxodo de refugiados. Para elas, trata-se de uma fonte de trabalho barato que poderá ser explorada mais intensamente do que os trabalhadores locais.
Num sentido mais amplo, não existe para isso maior motivação do que o desejo de obter trabalho barato. Para a elite moderna, a linha condutora da política económica é no sentido de obter trabalho barato e assegurar que as coisas assim permaneçam.
Mesmo as guerras petrolíferas são, em última análise, acerca de trabalho barato. Elas não foram, afinal de contas, acerca da obtenção do acesso ao petróleo – elas já tinham acesso ao mesmo. A questão era obter o controle do petróleo, de modo a que pudesse ser exercido como arma. E ao exercê-lo como arma é que os Estados Unidos podem permanecer hegemónicos. Mas para os EUA e as elites internacionais dos EUA permanecerem hegemónicos é preciso que política pró corporações e anti-trabalho possam continuar a ser impostas à escala mundial. O petróleo é sobretudo mais uma arma para impor a política de assegurar que o trabalho seja barato e que as elites arrecadem a diferença, seja directamente ao produzir objectos com a super exploração do trabalho (sweatshops) e vende-los por mais ou, indirectamente, assegurando que os proletários não estejam em posição de levantar objecções a lantejoulas financeiras como imprimir toneladas de moeda e garantir que só financeiros possam tê-la, ou ainda endividando-os e sobrecarregando-os com juros, etc.
Em vista disso, penso que há pessoas demasiado rápidas a descartar o interesse da elite alemã em obter trabalho barato e também demasiado rápidas em assumir que as elites alemãs se importam em que haja uns poucos bandidos e/ou terroristas entre os refugiados que a curto prazo provoquem algum caos e agridam, violem ou matem algumas pessoas. Na verdade, as elites alemãs provavelmente estão felizes por haver alguns bandidos e terroristas entre os refugiados.
É aqui que análises culturais da direita estão absolutamente erradas. As elites alemãs e europeias não estão de modo algum interessadas em criar uma sociedade homogeneizada na qual os imigrantes e a população existente se misturem e fundam as suas respectivas culturas. Ao contrário. Também nisto os europeus do Leste cometeram este erro. “Recordo quão difícil era mesmo para um único indivíduo qualificado obter uma permissão de residência, digamos, na Alemanha”. Sim, naturalmente. Um único indivíduo qualificado. De um grupo não demonizado. Em suma, alguém de quem se poderia esperar entrar e ganhar um bom salário num emprego real em igualdade com alemães da classe média. Para que serve isso às elites? Eles querem imigrantes, certamente – mas querem-nos empobrecidos, isolados, assustados e idealmente constituindo uma divisão social completamente nova a ser explorada. Se não houvesse bandidos entre eles para ajudar a criar uma rejeição, as elites teriam de inventar alguns. Se há algo que as elites alemãs realmente gostariam seria criar algo como os negros estado-unidenses. Uma subclasse de desempregados permanentes a qual permanecerá segregada para sempre e criará divisões no eleitorado, deitando abaixo salários médios, inchando o exército de famintos pobres que aceitaria qualquer emprego de merda, tornando a política sindical e da classe trabalhadora muito mais difícil tanto devido àquele exército de reserva disposto a aceitar piores condições como devido à divisão social.
Para alcançar esse sonho, a carreira política de Angela Merkel é um preço a pagar muito pequeno – mesmo com algum risco de incidentes provocados por partidos da extrema-direita, os quais não ameaçam banqueiros brancos ou proprietários de fábricas. Ainda assim é um grande negócio. Na verdade, com a actual insatisfação popular com as políticas de austeridade, que tendem a enraizar a esquerda, as elites podem realmente sentir que se beneficiam com a ascensão da extrema-direita porque ela suga energia política à esquerda. Eles muito provavelmente estão a utilizar a direita populista, assim como utilizaram Hitler – embora possam estar a calcular mal, tal como o fizeram com Hitler.
Pondo de lado toda essa análise, não estou realmente seguro em aceitar a ideia de que há qualquer coisa demasiado grande na aceleração de chegadas de refugiados. Erdogan é certamente um islamista, mas duvido que queira tomar Viena. É verdade que pode ter concluído que já não pode mais utilizar os enormes campos de refugiados para nada … mas se eles não são úteis, isso significa que constituem um custo e a economia turca não está a comportar-se tão bem. Não manter campos cheios de milhões de refugiados é mais barato do que manter aqueles campos. Mas também, pode ser apenas o ritmo das coisas … Os sírios podem estar a evitar atravessar a Turquia e serem capturados em campos porque têm ouvido dizer que isso pode acontecer se forem através da Turquia. Os refugiados sírios podem a princípio ter parado em outros lugares do Médio Oriente, como o Líbano, a Jordânia e mesmo o Iraque, mas estão agora a mudar-se porque ali não há espaço ou as boas vindas azedaram. A taxa de refugiados de outros lugares como a Líbia, mesmo o Iémen, pode estar a acelerar-se. O “negócio” do transporte de refugiados pode ter ficado maior e melhor organizado e simplesmente tem sido mais capaz de movimentar pessoas do que a princípio. É inevitável que haja um bocado de especulação razoavelmente extravagante acerca de tudo isto porque, francamente, haveria uma grande despesa com o esforço de investigação simplesmente para compreender como todas estas pessoas estão a fluir e porque as taxas de chegadas estão a alterar-se.
Há uma coisa no entanto que é indiscutível. É que no final das contas e em última análise todos estes refugiados são uma forma de ricochete. Se a UE cessasse de ajudar o ataque dos EUA e de desestabilizar estes países e se se recusasse a dar-lhe cobertura diplomática para tais acções, acabaria por ter menos refugiados.

The exodus of refugees from Africa and Asia has ripped away the mask from Europe’s humanist face. It turns out that proclaiming and preaching one’s values is not the same thing as living up to them. Unable to resolve the migrant problem, they have begun a hunt for the guilty.
As usual, fingers are pointed toward Russia, as its opponents continue their tradition of mixing the non-obvious with the truly unlikely. Russia is supporting Assad and has allegedly started a war against the «moderate opposition» for lack of anything better to do (the myth of their «moderation» was created by Washington; in Syria there are none who fit that description among those who have taken up arms and are acting against the legitimate government).
Amidst the criticism of Russia’s «unilateral» actions in Syria, not only the crimes of the so-called Islamic State (IS) are being forgotten, but also the West’s own misdeeds. The ones committed against the migrants. In Germany, for example, a refugee camp has been set up at the site of a satellite labor camp of Buchenwald, with the assumption that refugees from Algeria and Eritrea will be unable to grasp where it is they have ended up.
The miserable living conditions of the refugees in the Hungarian camp in Röszke have been captured on video. The footage, shot with a hidden camera, shows hundreds of migrants held in a fenced-in enclosure scrambling to catch sandwiches thrown to them by guards. And all the while the guards are wearing helmets and hygiene masks.
Migrants were at first admitted into Finland. But now the country resorted to «counter-propaganda» in order to frighten them away. Finland’s Yle news website posted a story on September 21 about three Iraqi migrants who claim to be deeply upset about the conditions in their host country and are preparing to return home.

In 2003, the European Union adopted a neighborhood policy that now applies to 16 countries east and south of the borders of the EU. Within that framework Brussels offers assistance, technical aid, and access to its market. But ultimately, as Carl Bildt puts it http://csis.org/event/europe-surrounded-not-ring-friends-ring-fire, instead of a «ring of friends», Europe finds herself surrounded by a «ring of fire», which has prompted the exodus of refugees into the EU. Why did this happen?
The problem is Europe’s lack of independence. Although it enjoys one of the world’s foremost economies, the European Union, in a military and political sense, is actually a protectorate of the United States. Not only is Europe blanketed by a network of US military bases, it is still the only place outside of the US where American tactical nuclear weapons (TNW) are permanently stationed.
The Americans are currently planning to deploy high-precision B-61-12 guided nuclear bombs in Europe, and these bombs will first be delivered to Germany. It was not so long ago that Germany was partially within the American zone of occupation. And it should not be forgotten that Americans allow the Germans to «steer Europe» as long as it does not interfere with their global geopolitical strategy and does not threaten the dominance of the dollar.
And as the Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten wrote on September 13, it turns out that the majority of those seeking asylum in Europe are refugees from countries that have been caught up in bloody wars in the last 20 years – from the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ethiopia, and Somalia. And it was the military intervention of the US and its allies that laid the foundation of almost all of these wars. It is they who are responsible for the flood of refugees into Europe.
So in order to limit the influx of refugees, how about nipping reckless military escapades in the bud, instead of building walls along the borders of each European state? Separated from Europe by an ocean, the US is not particularly concerned about the migration crisis that has befallen the Europeans. Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten claims that the American allies in the alliance must now pay for the wars unleashed by the United States.
Or it could be put even more simply: that notorious transatlantic solidarity is creating one-sided benefits for the United States but is detrimental for Europe. Once they began taking part in sanctions against Russia, Europeans became convinced of that. The refugee crisis has to prove it even more.
Thus Europe ought to rejoice that on September 30, the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces began to take decisive action against the terrorists of the so-called Islamic State (IS), an entity that – as we are now discovering – Americans solicitously patronized. But no! Germany and France have agreed with a statement from the Turkish Foreign Ministry, appealing to Moscow on behalf of seven states to halt the air strikes on the Syrian opposition and to «refocus» on the battle against Islamic militants. As if the «moderates» and «immoderates» in Syria were not fighting for the very same thing – to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
And incidentally, when US planes attacked a hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz, burning patients alive, not a single European politician expressed any particular outrage!
Only the utter military defeat of the IS armed gangs and the subsequent pacification of Syria and Iraq can stem the flood of refugees that is swamping Europe. The understanding of this has already begun to take root. Demonstrations and rallies in support of Russia’s actions in Syria have been held at the Russian embassy in Paris and at the Russian consulate in Frankfurt. Russia’s policy toward Syria is supported by Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French National Front, who has argued that France should join Russia in the battle against terrorism.
Even outside Europe one can find sympathy for Russia’s actions. The Xinhua news agency posted an editorial on October 2, maintaining that «Russia is …taking its cue from the international battle against terrorism». (Here we would like to suggest a correction to the Chinese journalists: not «taking its cue from», but rather «at the forefront of»). What’s more, Xinhua notes that «the path for Russia’s military intervention has been smoothed by the very modest successes[emphasis mine – V. N.] of the US-led international coalition there, as well as the problems the EU is having with the influx of refugees».
Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry also made an important comment. «Russia’s entrance, given its potential and capabilities, is something we see is going to have an effect on limiting terrorism in Syria and eradicating it», stated the Egyptian minister of foreign affairs on October 3, during a televised interview with Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya news channel.
Even America’s Newsweek magazine was forced to admit: «…Russia’s new involvement removes some of the pressure from the US to resolve the mess in Syria and Iraq alone. Despite Russia’s support for the Assad regime, Putin’s offer to create an anti-ISIS coalition is probably genuine. A de facto coalition between the US allied coalition and Russian and Iranian-backed regime forces on the ground could well be the most effective way to degrade ISIS in the long run».
* * *
As long as Europe’s elite remains ambivalent about Russia joining the fight against the so-called Islamic State, they are surrendering not only their military victory but also their dignity. Obviously, there can be no turning point here without the arrival of a new generation of European politicians, intent not upon being subordinate to a transatlantic partner, but on being part of a union of equals with Greater Eurasia.

Soros / CIA Plan to Destabilize Europe
Just as the dark forces of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and George Soros’s multi-billion dollar network of non-governmental organizations plotted to destabilize the Middle East and North Africa through the use of social media to bring about the so-called «Arab Spring», these same forces have opened a new chapter in their book of global dysfunctionality by facilitating the mass movement of refugees and economic migrants from the Middle East, Asia, and Africa to Europe.
In March 2011, Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi predicted what would happen to Europe if the stability of his country was undermined by the Western powers. In an interview with «France 24», Qaddafi correctly predicted, «There are millions of blacks who could come to the Mediterranean to cross to France and Italy, and Libya plays a role in security in the Mediterranean».
Qaddafi’s son, Saif al Islam Qaddafi, who has been sentenced to death by the radical Libyan regime that governs Tripoli, echoed his father’s comments in the same interview with the French news network. Saif said: «Libya may become the Somalia of North Africa, of the Mediterranean. You will see the pirates in Sicily, in Crete, in Lampedusa. You will see millions of illegal immigrants. The terror will be next door». As seen with recent events, Saif was right on target.
Indeed, for Europe, the terror is literally next door. It is estimated that as many as 4000 radical jihadists, young men who are veterans of the terrorist holocausts of Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, have taken advantage of the absence of European Union external and internal Schengen border controls to either return to Europe or enter Europe for the first time. Many of the young male «migrants» have iPhones, bank ATM cards, multiple passports, and ample cash, hardly what would expect to be found in the possession of legitimate war refugees.
Not only have black Africans inundated southern Europe after making dangerous boat trips from North Africa, including Libya, but Syrian refugees, mostly created as the result of the West’s mass transfer of captured arms caches from Libya to Syrian jihadists after the overthrow of Qaddafi, thus triggering the bloody Syrian civil war, are streaming by boat and by land into the very heart of Europe.
Soros, who is nothing more than a multi-billionaire front man for the even wealthier Rothschild banking family of Western Europe, oversaw the complete destruction of the nation-states of southeastern Europe that now permit practical unfettered access of civil war and economic migrants from Syria, Iraq, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Sri Lanka, and other war- and poverty-ravaged nations of the Third World.
As a result of his programs to re-engineer nations, Soros first helped destroy the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia with the active help of the European Union and NATO. The seven independent republics that once constituted Yugoslavia, now serve as major transit routes for perhaps tens of thousands and an impending hundreds of thousands of non-European migrants. Greece, which is suffering under austerity «vulturism» directed by European central and private bankers, including Soros and his Rothschild overseers, can hardly deal with the massive influx of refugees. The bankers have ensured that Greece cannot even provide the basic social services for its own people let alone refugees from civil war zones and nations suffering from collapsed governments and economies.
Macedonia, which continues to reel from an attempted Ukraine-style «themed revolution» courtesy of neocons in the Obama administration like Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland, was unable to hold back a mass invasion of refugees from Greece. Many of the refugees who treated the Greek-Macedonian border as a non-existent nuisance piled across it into Macedonia and onward into Serbia. The migrants have sought any way possible to reach welcoming Austria and Germany. Refugees in Budapest swamped the central train station, forcing it to close to all passengers, refugees trying to make it to Austria and Germany, as well as Hungarians and foreign tourists.
Muslim refugees arriving in Munich have been irritated by the presence on the streets of beer-drinking Germans and foreigners celebrating the annual «Oktoberfest.» There have already been heated exchanges on the streets between drunken Oktoberfest celebrants and some Muslim refugees who object to the presence of plentiful alcohol. Munich city officials said they only had the capacity to receive 1000 new refugees per day. The city has seen that number climb to 15,000 a day with some 90 percent of them failing to register with local authorities and disappearing into destinations unknown.
Throughout cities and towns in Europe, newly-arrived migrants sleeping in parks and on sidewalks have created a public health nightmare with human feces covering park grounds and the stench of urine permeating the walls of buildings and gutters. The situation is exacerbated by newly-arriving Syrian refugees in northern Germany mistaking poisonous wild «death cap» mushrooms for an edible variety that grows in the eastern Mediterranean. Although warning notices written in Arabic and Kurdish have been distributed to the refugees, the refugees have ingested the death cap mushrooms, which has resulted in uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhea, which has added to the public health dilemma facing Europe. It is only a matter of time before human waste-borne diseases like cholera and typhus make their first triumphant return to the cities of Europe since the deadly pandemics of the last millennium.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, EU Council President Donald Tusk of Poland, and EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker bear direct responsibility for the influx of what may total more than a million political and economic refugees into the heart of Europe. Merkel has made no secret of her desire to add to the ranks of the German guest worker, Gastarbeiter. However, as shown with other guest workers in Germany who have arrived over the last several decades, these workers never consider themselves as «guests» but as permanent residents and citizens. Meanwhile, Tusk and Juncker, the latter a native of tiny Luxembourg, have threatened to fine non-EU members Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Iceland if they do not absorb their share of refugees, a percentage dictated by the EU «Eurocrats» in Brussels. Although Tusk has demanded EU countries to open their borders and treasuries to the refugees, his native Poland is reticent to accept more than a few hundred. Poland’s opposition is joined by the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
Juncker’s successor as prime minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, who is Europe’s first leader to be in a gay marriage, has welcomed hundreds of refugees. Bettel does not believe in a Europe of borders and therefore, like Merkel, Tusk, and Juncker, he a hero to the Soros-funded NGOs who are turning Europe into a deadly social engineering experiment. Many Luxembourgers are in search of someone like Marine Le Pen in France to stop the refugee welcome wagon that threatens to obliterate the Grand Ducky of Luxembourg.
The countries that have radicalized their jihadist guerrilla armies in Syria and Iraq, namely, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait, saw fit to take in no refugees from the fighting in Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia had the unmitigated gall to offer Germany to build 200 mosques for the refugees, of course mosques that would only preach and teach the radical Wahhabist version of Islam.
Meanwhile, there is evidence that Turkey urged refugees from Syria on its soil to join the mass exodus on unseaworthy vessels to its longtime adversary, Greece. This gambit has resulted in the deaths of many children and women, which has only served to pull the heart strings of northern Europeans who have invited thousands of refugees into their social welfare paradises. Turkey has also distributed handbooks to the migrants instructing them where to go once they arrive in Germany for government social welfare assistance.
Just as seen with Soros- and CIA-directed themed revolutions in the Arab countries and Ukraine, migrants on the move have been instructed via Twitter where increased border controls have been established and how to bypass them. This «outside» direction has resulted in refugees heading from Greece, Macedonia, and Serbia into Croatia and Slovenia in order to make their way to the Austrian and German frontiers, thus avoiding increasingly hostile Hungary and Serbia. There has already been a practical border skirmish between Croatian police escorting a train full of refugees to the Hungarian border and Hungarian border guards.
Whether they are termed neo-conservative or neo-liberal, the policies that have resulted in the worst refugee crisis to strike Europe since the end of World War II have their roots in the political boiler shops funded by George Soros and CIA front groups throughout Europe and the United States. It is only a matter of time before their roles in what has occurred in Europe will be discovered by the nationalists of the right and left and their publishing houses and web site locations will go up in flames.
Eventually, Europeans will wake up and discover that Russia immunized itself from the refugee scourge by not playing ball with the EU and its contrivances. When newly-arrived migrants begin defecating, vomiting, and urinating on the streets of Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, Helsinki, and Stockholm, refugee crisis-free Russia will not seem so bad after all.
