More than four in five Germans believe Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government isn’t controlling the refugee crisis, and welcome tougher measures to deal with it, a poll by ARD Deutschlandtrend has suggested. It needs to say, that Merkel’s government has come under fire for the chancellor’s “welcoming policy” towards refugees, who have recently arrived in Germany in overwhelming numbers. Although she says Germany can cope with the 1.1 million who have come in 2015 – and potentially more in 2016 – nearly 40 percent of Germans believe Merkel should step down over her refugee policy.
Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan understands Chancellor Angela Merkel’s current situation. And he not only understands, Erdogan knows how to make money on it! LOL Not much time ago Merkel visited Ankara, the capital of Turkey. During her visit she discussed with Erdogan problem of arriving refugees. She tried to persuade Erdogan to take from Germany and European Union the most of Syrian refugees. She even promised three milliard Euro for doing it. LOL Erdogan agreed with Merkel to get three milliard Euro, but noticed that his country can not give shelter for any more refugees. Turkey needs European money to operate with those refugees, which already came to Turkey. And if Merkel wants more refugees for Turkey, then she should give more money. I’m sure, Merkel has nothing to do, but agrees with Erdogan, and gives him six milliard Euro of
After Merkel’s visit Erdogan has believed in success and tried to bargain with Obama. Turkish President has told Washington to choose between Turkey and, as he put it, the “terrorists.” (Kurdish people of Turkey and Syria) LOL!
The conflict between the Turkish government and Kurdish insurgent groups demanding greater autonomy for the large ethnic group has been continuing for decades. With several failed ceasefires between the sides, Ankara has been blamed by a number of human rights groups for putting civilian lives at risk in Turkey's mainly Kurdish south-east.
In August, Ankara launched a ground operation to crack down on Kurdish fighters linked to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The violence ended a two-year truce with Kurdish militants fighting a guerilla war for independence.
"Turks have a phobia of Kurds because they are scared of their Turkish Kurds, some 20 million of them living in Turkey,” Abd Salam Ali, the Kurdish Democratic Union Party's representative adding that "Islamic State has military bases in Turkey, and is using it as a corridor. Turkey currently plays a role similar to the one Pakistan played in the 1980s. When the Soviet forces were stationed in Afghanistan, jihadists arrived there through Pakistan, along with the money and arms."
Washington answered Erdogan that US won’t choose between him or Kurdish people. Washington wants to see political solution for Syrian crisis now. The time for war ended. Now it’s time for elections. And current Syrian president Bashar Assad participates! LOL
