Acting in Time

Greece has installed a 40km (25-mile) fence and surveillance system on its border with Turkey amid concern over a surge of migrants from Afghanistan.

"We cannot wait, passively, for the possible impact," Greece's Citizens' Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis said on a visit to the region of Evros on Friday.

"Our borders will remain inviolable."

Well good on them acting before there is a problem not waiting till it's to late to stop them.

Unfortunately building a wall on our beaches is not an option but if more tracking of them crossing over(not rocket science these days) and taking action to collar them as soon as they land ,and then transporting them to a Scotish island where a detention camp could be built while they are processed and hopefully sent back.

Not a perfect solution but better than doing nothing which we seem to be doing at the moment.

I seem to remember the yanks did something similar with Japanese folk living in California in 1942

The UN HR organisation are expressing concerns that the Taliban are performing summary executions, and no doubt think they will hold the Taliban to account.   How exactly do they do that ?   Taliban Leaders are unlikely to leave Afghanistan, the UN or any other Country are unlikely to enter Afghanistan - so basically they have a free hand to do whatever they like, without any accountability.   :rolleyes:

Have we to assume that the refugees will all be fully tested & vaxed & quarantined on arrival in the UK ?

As for the Taliban ,if the leopard hasn't changed its spots ,will have free rein to do what it wants under its regime ,once foreign troops are out of the country, without fear of retribution.

Well it's likely that the chickens (terrorists) will be coming here to roost -   they've already spotted red flagged individuals trying to board planes to the UK; and now the French are warning us that some of the boat migrants may be armed.   Add to this a flood of heroin heading for Europe and China securing mining rights, so they can extract the lithium, then sell us batteries for our EVs,  and to say it's a mess, would be an understatement.    :rolleyes:

When you consider this Taliban influx into Afghanistan i have to wonder if this more to do with certain oil rich states in the Gulf, who may or may not be sponsoring these actions, in order to get a healthy stake in the eco battery market for when their oil is no longer needed in today's quantities.

Well, Biden's promise to exact revenge on the ISSIS terrorists who bombed his troops at Kabul Airport, resembles that of Bush's speech after 9/11, which started this 20 year saga.  So it seems we've gone full circle and ended up where we started, except we can't start, as we've conceded defeat.   Other than filling the Afghan skies with Reaper Drones and killing innocent and guilty alike on a systematic basis to provide retribution;  Biden can't recoup any political credibility, he's now a failed President with failing health.   So in the spirit of reaping what we sow;  thousands of migrants will enter the UK and EU from Afghanistan, including terrorists, committed to Jihad; and the liberal bleeding hearts over here will be trying to outdo each other to welcome them in, including those bent on killing us.   No doubt the EU and France will be waving them through to the UK,  where over 10,000 have landed up to now, and we have a Gov incapable of responding as the majority of Brits would wish IE turn them round and take them back by force.   Oh what a tangled web our politicians have wove.      😠

I'm still wondering why we (the UK)  are expected to house and feed a flood of refugees from Afghanistan ?   Having left them with schools, hospitals, roads and an Army, which now includes an airforce;   why exactly do they want to get to the UK ?   Could it be just for "a better life" like the rest;  who are unprepared to work and if necessary fight for a better life in their own Country ?     😠

I think it’s more they don’t like the idea of being publicly beheaded for assisting our armed forces to fight against the Taliban than just wanting to come here. They aren’t economic migrants; they just don’t want to die at the hands of a brutal regime. We helped to create their plight, so it’s only right that we should offer them protection.

Who's the "we" Bill, I don't recall any vote for us Plebs to get involved in Afghanistan;  just Bliar  playing the lap-dog to Bush, then talking about "Nation Building", without actually knowing what the Afghan people wanted.  At the end of the day it's a question of moral fibre,  whether the Afghanis have the will to build "a better life" in THEIR Country, and if necessary fight and die for it.   We trained their Army, which folded at the first shot; now they seek "a better life" (like the rest) over here, total dependency.😠

The we is the British public and no we didn’t vote to go into to Afghanistan, the politicians made that decision for us but at that time there was a lot more support for action to remove the threat of terrorism that the Taliban were playing hosts to. In most conflict cases, there’s always a good reason to act but when it starts to drag out, public support soon drops off and the conspiracy theorists and opposition have a field day.

Sure at first the Afghans didn’t want us there, but after twenty years of change for the better, most there would prefer what they have now than to revert back to the old ways. I believe the Afghans that assisted our troops did so in the hope of defeating the Taliban and making their country a better place to live and only a hardened cynic would suggest it was for the chance of settlement in the UK.
