Turkey Dumps Migrants On Greek Border, Deploys Special Forces To Keep Them From Coming Back

Written by Wes Walker on March 6, 2020

We’re looking at the 2015 Migrant Crisis all over again… and just in time for a pandemic!

Tensions between Turkey and Greece are heating up, with Turkey pushing all kinds of people it doesn’t want to deal with into Europe.

It’s not exactly honest to call them ‘refugees’, either, since some of them have been released from Turkish prisons and escorted to the border.

Turkey has vowed to deploy 1,000 special forces members at its border with Greece, as tensions between the two countries continue to rise following the Turkish government’s decision to open its border to Europe for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.

The decision to send special forces to the border comes amid pushback from Greek authorities, who have been accused of using violence to prevent migrants and asylum seekers from entering the country.

The special forces, Turkey suggested, would be tasked with ensuring that migrants and asylum seekers are not turned back.

In the days since Turkey opened the gateway to Europe, thousands of people have sought to enter into Greece at both land and sea crossings, with violent clashes reportedly unfolding between migrants and Greek law enforcement.

Greek personnel have been accused of deploying tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons to prevent migrants and asylum seekers from entering the country.

“They wounded 164 people. They tried to push 4,900 back to Turkey,” the nation’s interior minister, Süleyman Soylu, told reporters on Thursday, according to British newspaper The Guardian. “We are deploying 1,000 special force police… to prevent the pushbacks.”Newsweek

GREECE is the bad guy here? Guess again.

Who are the Greeks trying to keep out?

Here are some clips:

The pushback is starting…

Meanwhile, in Poland…

If Turkey is going to play these games by dumping hoards of their own ‘surplus’ young men on Europe as ‘migrants’, is it time for Trump to ramp up those crippling sanctions he was talking about?

After all, we don’t know who is coming across that border… or where they’re coming from.

Iran, one of the Coronovirus hotspots, isn’t so very far away. And having large groups of people clustered together like that is a recipe for disaster.
