The refugee crisis in Turkey and the EU was a consequence of its actions and also of its NATO partners as one of the many foreign governments waging war on Syria.

Turkey in cooperation with the CIA was involved in moving weapons and militants from Libya to Syria through its port in Ceyhan. This operation was reported five years ago in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack as indicated in my prior post.

The government also banned Wikipedia for content showing they supported ISIS.

Yea the Syrians under Assad and his dictator father's police state were blissfully happy until outsiders started interfering. That's it, it was only outsiders who caused this problem. Not decades of societal oppression and resentment of police-state power in Syria. uh uh. That had no role in the uprising against Assad. It was just Turkey and NATO.


Good analysis buddy.

What's that got to do with debunking the notion that the refugee crisis was just caused by Turkey and NATO?


You might as well tell me the price of milk was lower before also.

The refugee crisis has been the result of a number of factors. NATO members do share part of the blame, but it would be asinine to suggest that it should be solely pointed at them. Iran and Russia are active participants in it as well, as are Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Its also worth noting that many refugees do not come from the ME, but from Africa due to the EU's lax immigration policy. In essence, a large number of them are economic migrants as opposed to "refugees", though by no means all.

I would say that every foreign power as well as the Syrian government, along with the various rebel factions that took part in that theater are at the very least accountable. The war itself has moved past its original purpose with different groups are using it as a plateau to establish a foothold. The Kurds are hoping that they'll eventually get their own state at the end of it, which would require carving up parts of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.

While these nations are technically on the Asian continent, these nations are considered MIDDLE EASTERN countries.

In the US and Canada, Asians refer to Oriental ethnic groups such as the Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, etc. In the UK, Asians refer to East Indians, Pakistani's and Bangladeshi and/or Sri Lankans.
Pakistan should be considered Middle Eastern - the concept of Asian is wrong as it lumps together a variety of civilizations.

Wasn't the refugee crisis a spillover of the Iraq invasion by Bush? Itself a spillover from the attacks on WTC? Itself a spillover from the wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan, which in turn can be traced back to colonialism, which in turn can be traced back to Middle Eastern colonialism into China and India.
