The president of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, has suggested that troops should be used to secure the European Union’s borders against immigration and that a common European army could be formed to achieve this objective. He correctly notes that the failure to repulse the ongoing migrant invasion is due to a lack of will on behalf of European leaders. The EUobserver reports:
The EU could better protect itself from migrants if it had a common army, Czech president Milos Zeman said Tuesday (25 August), while the Czech finance minister, Andrej Babis, called for the closure of the Schengen area’s external borders and for Nato help.
Speaking to Czech ambassadors at Prague castle, Zeman regretted that Frontex, the EU border-control agency, has only three unarmed ships and a few armed ships to patrol the Mediterranean.
“The EU’s fundamental lack is a lack of will for a common border protection”, Zeman said. “Today, a common European army would come in handy” to address the issue, he added.
Central Europeans (see “Can the Ossis Save Europe?“), notably Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, are then taking the lead in warning against the predictable calamity that is the ongoing Afro-Islamic invasion of Europe.
The article goes on:
Czech authorities recently floated the idea of using the army to secure the country’s borders.
“The defence ministry is ready to allocate a maximum of 2,600 soldiers in case of further requests from the police”, defence minister Martin Stropnicky said on Friday.
The Czech republic is on the way between Hungary, where more than 100,000 migrants have arrived so far this year, and Germany, their main destination.
It is itself expecting up to 7,000 asylum seekers next year, according to a defence ministry report revealed by the CTK press agency earlier this month.
Interior minister Milan Chovanec said he would seek about €40 million of extra spending next year to face migrant arrivals.
On Tuesday, the Czech prime minister, Bohuslav Sobotka also called on Europe to take collective action to protect Schengen area’s external borders, especially in Italy, Greece, and Macedonia.
“The migrant crisis is a pan-European problem. It is a challenge that we cannot run away from. There is now a great deal at stake. Among others the future of the Schengen border-free zone”, he said.
European authorities actually securing our Old Continent’s borders against foreign invasion? Now that’s an EU we might be able to get behind.
His finance minister, businessman Andrej Babis, went further and asked for Nato help.
“The question is whether Macedonian or Bulgarian armies don’t need Nato help”, he told reporters, pointing to the fact that, Greece, their neighbour, is isolated from the rest of the Schengen area.
On Tuesday, Bulgaria announced it was sending 25 soldiers and armoured vehicles to help monitor the four border-crossings with Macedonia.
Babis also said that Schengen’s external border should be “immediately” closed and called on the EU to warn migrants’ countries of origin that it would take no more.
“It must say: You cannot come to us to be unemployed and take immediately social benefits”, he said.
He added the EU should create a giant camp where economic migrants would be sorted from people in need of protection, especially women and children. (my emphasis)
But of course left-wing Western Europeans are demanding that the EU impose migrant quotas on recalcitrant Central European nations: “In an interview to Austrian radio O1, Austrian chancellor Werner Faymann criticised the Czech government, and also Poland and Baltic states, for refusing European quotas of refugees.”
My impression is Zeman is a Central European anti-communist conservative who, by virtue of this background, is extremely pro-American and anti-Islamic (basically neoconservative-aligned). That would explain his unusually politically incorrect statements on migrants and Islam’s incompatibility with Western civilization.
What Zeman does not seem to realize, is that the United States has, since World War II, become the chief force bringing Afro-Muslims into Europe: the apologia of “multiculturalism” and the cult of the Holocaust, siding with Muslim Bosnians and Kosovars against Christian Serbs in the former Yugoslavia, pushing for Turkey’s membership of the EU (and thus unlimited immigration from that still-growing nation of almost 80 million), and the destabilization of the Middle East – with the destruction of the Arab nations of Iraq, Libya, and Syria – which has produced so many Europe-bound refugees and torn down effective bulwarks against sub-Saharan African migrants. On this, Zeman could profitably read Jean-Marie Le Pen on the corrupted America’s destructive role in Europe:
The problem of immigration is made more complicated by the fact that a large part of this immigration is Muslim and that the Muslim world is largely influenced by extremist ideas, warlike interpretations of the Koran. Yet we have to observe that concerning Europe, the Americans have taken the side of the Muslims, of Bosniaks and Kosovars against Christian Orthodox Serbs. They are pushing incidentally for Turkey, 95% Muslim, to enter the European Union. There are political ulterior motives whose results, I am forced to observe, are hostile to the survival of Europe.
Is this deliberate on the part of certain American circles, who eliminate thus a dangerous rival, or is it short-sightedness? I do not know, not knowing their hearts and minds. But I see that even President Obama is starting to hesitate on the choices that have been made. The operations undertaken in the Middle East have been disastrous, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Syria. The higher interests of Israel, to which the United States is very close, have certainly played an important role in the decisions that were taken. That Israel struggles for its survival and power, that’s to be expected. It is therefore in its interests for the Arab countries to be split. For Tel Aviv, three Iraqs are preferable to one! Or three Syrias rather than one! All the same American policing of the region has been disastrous.
The fact is that the cultural masters of America are hell-bent upon destroying European nations as cohesive, homogeneous entities, and replacing them with tense, fragile, multiethnic populations prone to civil war (à la Yugoslavia, Ukraine . . .) and, ultimately — whether this outcome be consciously sought or not — the reduction of indigenous Europeans to vulnerable minorities in their own homelands.
In any event, a common European military force to police our borders against Afro-Islamic invasion is something which, I suspect, many nationalists could get behind. And, for that at least, Zeman can be saluted.
