Yeah, but what in the world does that exactly mean, “be prepared to let them all in, or send them packing back into Russia?”
I fear the former. Russia is on the move, the stage is being set in the initial outbreak of WWIII, it’s not just the violent Islamic element, but the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians as well. Obama’s unilateral and disastrous withdrawal from Iraq has set a series of dominoes in action, with the worst of the worst making steady gains.
I have already reported on the situation between Norway and Russia, the Kremlin is behind the scene orchestrating the Muslim flow into Norway, soon they’ll be sending them our way as well.
President Niinistö focused his remarks the migrant situation in Europe and the latest policy moves by Norway to reduce the growing number of refugees arriving via an Arctic route across northern Russia.
“Questions are already being put forth about the same possibly happening on Finland’s eastern border. This then involves a rather large mass of people. It is possible that this would be major migration and in such a situation we must be able to be prepared,” said Niinistö.
Finland has a 1340-kilometre border with Russia, the EU’s longest.
The president met with the press following a meeting with the government’s Ministerial Committee on Foreign and Security Policy that also reviewed the situation in Afghanistan, where Finland has deployed peacekeepers to the ISAF operation.
“We noted the difficult situation and established that operations can be continued, perhaps in a reduced form from [the level of] Finland’s presence at the moment,” stated President Niinistö.
