Italy thinking about ‘Nuclear Option’ in moving on migrants to Northern Europe

Things are coming to a head in Italy with the influx of refugees and no one is talking about it. Less than 7,000 have been moved on out of Italy and still they pour in. It is reported they are at the breaking point. 13,500 in a 48 hour period arrived just at the end of June. A number of countries are now refusing to accept any,with the EU issuing threats against those countries. Where are the women and children? Just asking:

Senior Italian government figures are threatening to issue European Union visas to 200,000 migrants, granting them unrestricted access to the bloc’s borderless Schengen Zone.

In response to Italy’s mounting crisis, the EU is planning to transport migrants to Europe directly from North Africa and for EU members to resettle them. Brussels expects the United Kingdom to engage in the programme and “volunteer” to accept a quota migrants, despite its vote to leave the bloc in June 2016.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro and Senator Luigi Manconi told The Times that the government was discussing issuing migrants with temporary visas which would allow them to leave Italy and move freely through the bloc’s 26 Schengen countries.

Mr. Giro and others from the ruling Democratic Party believe Italy can exploit the little-known European Council Directive 2001/55, drafted after the Balkans conflict, to give temporary EU entry permits to ‘displaced people’ – triggering another wave of mass migration into Northern Europe.

In 2015, at the height of the migrant crisis, the EU pledged to redistribute 160,000 African and Middle Eastern migrants based in Italy and Greece to other EU member-states signed up to the bloc’s common asylum policy – but as of June 9th, 2017, only 6,896 migrants have been relocated from Italy.

Countries such a Viségrad nations PolandHungary, and Slovakia are defying the supranational bloc and refusing the forced migrant distribution on grounds of culture and national security.

Mattia Toaldo, a senior analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said: “If migrants continue to arrive and Italy decides to give them papers to cross borders and leave Italy it would be a nuclear option. Italians have lost any hope of getting help from the EU and may say, ‘If you won’t make it a common challenge, we will’.”…….

More than 100,000 migrants crossed the Mediterranean Sea in the first six months of 2017.  Italy has overtaken Greece to become the main point of entry to Europe in the ongoing migrant crisis, with welcome centres in a state of near-collapse after 13,500 arrived in a 48-hour period at the end of June.

Tripoli about to fall, U.S. embassy ready to be evacuated

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — The U.S. military has doubled the number of aircraft standing by in Italy if needed to evacuate Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, CNN has learned.

Thanks for the memory Hillary. Just a few reminders of your wizardy as Secretary of State. Who didn’t see this coming?

A decision to evacuate as violence in the Libyan capital grows is “minute by minute, hour by hour,” a defense official told CNN on Monday.

Fierce fighting swept across the city Sunday after armed men stormed the country’s interim Parliament. Sporadic bursts of gunfire and blasts could still be heard on the outskirts of the capital Monday evening.

The violence appeared to be some of the worst since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi

Meanwhile, the Saudi ambassador to Libya announced that his country’s embassy and consulate in Tripoli closed Monday because of the violence, and the staff has left Tripoli, according to the official Saudi Press Agency. The sites will reopen when the situation stabilizes, Ambassador Mohammed Mahmoud Al-Ali said, according to the report.

Turkey took similar measures, shutting down its consulate in Benghazi, Turkey’s semi-official Anadolu news agency reported.

ED: With everyone leaving town, why are we still there? What do we have to have, another Benghazi????

U.S. aircraft arrive in Italy

Four additional U.S. V-22 Osprey aircraft “arrived overnight” at the naval base in Sigonella, Italy, to join four V-22s and 200 Marines that had been moved there last week, a U.S. defense source said.

Somali refugees in Italy demonstrate over poor living standards

This is what we have started. Mass migrations will be taking place from these unstable areas of the world. Without appropriate immigration policies, the world will degenerate into chaos with us all living in the third world. The emigrants  must fight to improve their conditions in their countries. The only solution. Scandinavian countries are already lost to massive immigration. Italy is already being flooded with Egyptian and Libyans fleeing their countries.. How  soon will Obama open the flood gates for them here?

Thousands of desperate Africans, mostly from Somalia, annually enter Italy, which they use as a gateway to England and Scandinavian countries in search of better lives and jobs. The refugees reach Italy on smuggling boats across the Mediterranean Sea.

Reports from the Italian city of Firenze indicate that scores of Somali refugees there on Tuesday held demonstrations in the city in protest over poor living standards.

clearpxlThe demonstrators, including women and children, called on the international community to help them leave Italy, where they said they have been experiencing hard living conditions. Ane where pray tell do to you hope to settle?

“We are demonstrating here to try to attract the attention of the world so that the international community may have full understanding of the terrible living standards we have,” a demonstrator, Fardowa Ighe, told a gathering.
