BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged to “open doors” for 3.6 million Syrian refugees to Europe if the EU continues to label the Turkish military operation in northeast Syria as an occupation.

“We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way,” Erdogan said during a speech to lawmakers from his AK Party on Thursday.

The remarks come after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that Ankara “must cease the ongoing military operation” in the area.

“It will not work. And if Turkey’s plan is to create a security zone, do not expect funding from the European Union”, Jean-Claude Juncker told the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday.

Then Europe should kick Turkey out of NATO and support Greece with regards to Cyprus. The Russians can deal with Turkey then

Serves the EU right. All these days Assad was No.1 Enemy for the EU in the name of oppressing Syrians and now Assad looks like Santa Clause for the EU. Glad Sultan has shown his true colors to the EU and US and at least now they should take action against Sultan & Turki. The only way to hit Turki is economically. Already a fragile economy on the verge of collapse, ErDOG is now doing exactly what Pakistan is doing trying to divert the attention of its country.

Make yourself no illusions, nobody’s fooled either by Turd or by Pak. Let’s say that in the past, Germany sinned by excess of Jingoism, now it’s by excess of pacifism=>soft power ain’t enough

A W54 warhead with the lower yield (10 tons) on ErDGOG’s palace would be perfect : 130m for the 5psi radius, 320m for the 1psi radius (only windows break) while radiations will have a 380m lethal radius…

Germany alone can cancel the residence cards of a good 3 millions Turks. If EU expels all Turks, Erdogan will have about 5 millions to deal with…

Exchange is OK for me. And let’s help Syria expel all Turkey/Qatar proxies => Refugees will return => Jobs freed for EU unemployed people. EU-Kebabs will have pork meat 🙂
