Russia and Syria are deliberately using migration as an aggressive strategy towards Europe, the senior Nato commander in Europe has said.
US Gen Philip Breedlove said they were "weaponising" migration to destabilise and undermine the continent.So civilians are dying horrible deaths in a Russian ploy to break the EU apart. And instead of weathering the storm, we're throwing a massive tantrum and calling a referendum to break apart the EU ourselves.Gen Breedlove is the head of the US European Command as well as Nato's Supreme Allied Commander Europe.
He told the US Senate Armed Services Committee that the crisis was allowing Russia to use non-military means to create divisions in the Nato alliance and Europe.
He cited the use of barrel bombs - unguided weapons - against civilians in Syria. The only purpose of these indiscriminate attacks was to terrorise Syrian citizens and "get them on the road" to create problems for other countries, Gen Breedlove said.
The leave campaigners have a lot of pride and go on about how strong a country we are, but at the first sign of trouble we drop arse and leave. Russia knows this, and is using it to make us weaker. We're making it so easy for them, we deserve whatever we get.
who are introverts?
