New Migrant staging camps to hold 50,000 in Greece and 50,000 in the Balkans agreed by an EU/UN weekend meeting will do nothing to stem the tsunami of Migrants being pushed into Europe by Turkey.
As Russian / Syrian forces reclaim territory on the Turkish border, men fighting for Islamist and other rebel forces will stream away into Turkey in flight from capture. Shedding their weapons and uniforms and donning jeans and trainers, we will see them on news footage three weeks later forcing their way into crowded train carriages in Serbia, or violently assaulting police in Slovenia. These defeated Islamist troops are the 'refugees' that Europe's idiots and bien pensants are eager to welcome into their homes and the beds of their pubescent daughters.
The UN and the EU need to build more migrant camps, yes - but in Turkey, and to hold hundreds of thousands not tens of thousands. The UN in particular is aggravating the problem of Balkans migrants from Albania and Kosovo by providing them with a staging post on the way to Germany; any migrant camp north of Serbia is a mistake and will only exacerbate the problem.
We must hope for two things - that the Russians along with the Kurds succeed in closing the Turkish / Syrian border and thus rob Turkey of its weapon against us, and that an early and harsh winter discourages sea crossings into Greece. And we must stop pretending that Turkey is an innocent victim in all this - and recognise her as a force that has fomented war in Syria, is waging war on the Kurds, is fomenting economic war on Europe, and which must pay the consequences. Turkey cannot escape unpunished.
