Italy Furious After Austria Deploys Troops, Armored Vehicles To Border

Tyler Durden's picture

An angry Italy summoned Austria's ambassador after the government in Vienna announced it was ready to re-introduce border controls and deploy troops and armored vehicles along the border to block any migrant influx out of Italy. Austrian Defence Minister Hans Peter Doskozil told Kronen Zeitung daily that troops could go to the Brenner Pass and that four Pandur armoured personnel carriers had been sent to the Tyrol region with 750 troops were on standby.

“We need to prepare for the migration development in Italy, and I expect very promptly that border controls will have to be activated and assistance requested,” Hans Peter Doskozil told the online edition of the Krone daily, adding that a military deployment at the busy Alpine pass would be "indispensable if the influx into Italy [across the Mediterranean] does not diminish". While Austria has border checks with Hungary and Slovenia, elsewhere - such as on the border with Italy - it adheres to the EU open borders system.

Doskozil explained that “these are not battle tanks. These are armored vehicles without weapons which could block roads. These were already used during the refugee crisis of 2015/16 at the Spielfeld border crossing [with Slovenia],” just in case Italy got the impression that its northern neighbor was preparing to invade.


The Austrian border check point at Brenner.

The border controls will include the Alpine Brenner pass, which forms the border between Austria and Italy, one of the main mountain passes in the eastern Alps. There isn’t a strict time plan for the step-up in border security, but, according to Doskozil’s spokesman, “we see how the situation in Italy is becoming more acute and we have to be prepared to avoid a situation comparable to summer 2015” according to Reuters.

Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said that Vienna is prepared to "protect" the frontier with Italy "if necessary," as he spoke with the Austria Press Agency. Later Italy's foreign ministry said it had summoned Austrian Ambassador Rene Pollitzer "following the Austrian government's statement about deploying troops to the Brenner (pass)".

The latest turmoil inside Europe's customs union comes two years after Germany admitted over a million mostly Syrian migrants, as part of Angela Merkel's "Open Door" (since shut) welcome, and just days after Italy's interior minister demanded other EU nations "step up" and relieve Italy of the sudden flood of inbound migrants.

The Italian governor of South Tyrol, Arno Kompatscher, sought to defuse tensions. According to BBC, he said Austria had issued similar warnings about the border previously, and the situation there remained "quiet and stable". Austria was gearing up for a general election in October, Mr Kompatscher noted. The anti-immigration Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) is expected to poll strongly.

People-smuggling gangs have been exploiting the violence and chaos in Libya. The shortest crossing from Libya to Italy is only about 460km (290 miles). Nearly 85,000 migrants and refugees arrived in Italy in the first half of this year, across the Mediterranean. The UN refugee agency UNHCR says that is about 20% more than in the first half of 2016.

To be sure, the UN joined Italy's appeal, with Vincent Cochetel, the UNHCR'S special envoy for the central Mediterranean, saying that “this is not sustainable. We need to have other countries joining Italy and sharing that responsibility." So far, nobody in the European "Union" has stepped up to "share the responsibility" of Europe's generous refugee acceptance program.

The latest report by the UNHCR, revealed another troubling statistics: few of the migrants coming to Europe will granted asylum: 30% of them are fleeing conflict or persecution, while 70% of those arriving in Italy are economic migrants. Most migrants and refugees are young, single men with little or no education, and almost 15% are unaccompanied minors.

Meanwhile, Italy has also warned that the current scale of migrant arrivals is unsustainable and that it could even close its ports and impound aid agencies' rescue ships. In other words, yet another refugee crisis in Europe is imminent.

It will be the second time this has happened in two years. In 2015, the EU's Schengen system, or the free movement across most European borders,  was overwhelmed by an influx of migrants and refugees, whoe reached Central Europe via the Balkans, and most sought asylum in Germany. Since then, tighter border controls in the Balkans have reduced the numbers heading north from Greece. Most of the influx to Austria was via Hungary. Many of those who came by train or on foot were refugees from Syria, Iraq and other conflict zones.

So far 101,000 migrants have entered Europe in 2017 via the Mediterranean and according to the latest figures, 2,247 people have died or are missing at sea.

They are not fleeing poverty. Their ancestors have lived under harsher conditions for thousands of years. They merely want the gibsmedat in Germany, Sweden, etc along with the right to legally rape European women.

A simple solution, put them in a boat and drop them back off where they came from in Libya.  The fact that our governments are so paralysed with political correctness that they cannot do that shows how pathetic they are.

dot.dot's picture

Better yet; just start sinking the boats.  Give them fair warning to turn around immediately.  If warning is ignored simply open fire.  Sounds mean, but it won't be long before the message is received Lima Charlie and the bastards will stop trying.  

The new policy should be made known ahead of time so there are no surprises.

The first boat getting sunk will be the warning. Then demonize the survivors for putting children through that.

Well, why wouldn't they? After all, Austria is

"...a small country, that would soon be overrun, if it did not have strong, secure borders and laws to protect its Chosen People.

Anyone who disagrees or questions that, is a racist."

 and no country in europe has the desire , or it seems , the ability to stop soros' ships from picking up the invaders and depositing them on european soil......the ability of one individual to create so much chaos and destruction is simply unbelievable...............if europe will not defend themselves , then their destruction is certain.

Soros invasion also known as Soros-kushner.

Looks like the Vqtican and Jesuit commie Pope are all deeply involved in global pedophilia.  The Mafia and Vatican are totally helping the invasion of Europe as well as criminal Rothschild-EU.

Connect the dots:

-the Rothschilds work for the vatican

-the Pope is actually the vicar of the demiurge

-the demiurge separates the humans to control them (beginning with the tower of babel in the current historical iteration)

-they hide behind misdirection ("it's the joos!"), and what is really a "cult of death" 

-the vatican does nothing to truly punish pedophilia, therefore it endorses it

Rothschilds have been IN CHARGE of Vatican finances since around 1823 if memory serves.

The Jesuits, starting with Ignatius Loyola, were crypto-Jews (and I am sure, if we could go back in time to discover this, occultists/Kabbalists).

Yea. The Rothschilds Jews have captured EVERY institution in the Occidental. That is nothing new.

The Jew is the problem, because the Jew denies the problem. Without the base, the Rotschilds would be as powerless as any Gentile slave.

Same with Islam. Same with Christianity. It is all a control system to produce slaves.

Weep lambs. Weep Chosenites. Weep religion of Peace. We are not having it anymore.

I do not need spirits or foreign imaginary entities like demons and or angels, green or gray aliens, or lizards ...
to explain that there are groups of individuals that have had for thousands of years their own traditions, books, languages, elders and academics, mainly focused on obtaining and maintaining power via multiple methods like raising themselves while stomping on everyone else,
such groups may even temporary get agreements between themselves to develop common goals
the jews are a VERY easy to document historic example of such deeds

a.k.a. zionists rabbinic talmudic frankist khazarians whatever

by simple documentation of their multiple iterations they can get better at it,
Israel power on the planet is a humongous example

It would be far more accurate to say the Jewish controlled interests in Italy are outraged. Most of the actual citizens are quite satisfied.

At least the Austrian military vehicles have forward gears. 

Bogdog's picture

Exactly. When's the last time Austria rolled troops anywhere? As small scale as this is, it must be pretty serious. Maybe this is the tipping point, the "we're not going to take it anymore" moment for them. If Italy doesn't do anything to fix the situation, expect more Austrian troops to the border. It could be a glimmer of hope for Europe. But probably way too late though.

"Invasion of Europe seems to be continuing apace."

 

No. The invasion is over. This is simply re-supply.

Is "do as I say, not as I do" an inherent part of Germanic Kultur?

Hitler was Austrian and it took him to put some steel in the Germans' spine

So somehow it is OK for Austria to turn away refugees, but wrong for Poles, Magyars, and Czech to do the same?

I recall that Merkel welcomed these little balls of hate into the fold, but Italy has to clean up the mess?

Italy is cleaning up nothing, they’ve spread their collective cheeks and welcome these animals in by the tens of thousands – totally cucked and fucked. Adios Italy.

Three's less need for a distraction from the ECB pillaging the nations of Southern Europe. The moralistic narrative of spendthrift wogs has been thoroughly embedded into the public discourse. The current crop of economic migrants can be taken care of with various libels of 'rayciss!' Keeps everyone from looking at the public books.

Most of these people are not coming from Iraq or Libya, and Gadaffi was screwing around with all his neighbours for decades.

Its demographics that are pushing things here, they have massive families and no work with corrupt and useless leaders (now they got rid of the colonial administrations).  Expect South Africa to take its place amoung the failed states in the next couple of decades, Africa is a total basket case, ditto too for the entire middle east, Islam is the perfect arrangement for maximum population growth, and they have no economic development either.

MEFOBILLS's picture

 Islam is the perfect arrangement for maximum population growth, and they have no economic development either.

No.  Islam + Stupid People = no economic development.

Persia isn't exactly a backwater.  Their people are reasonably intelligent, the women tend to be good looking.  They are not Semite speaking kebbabs.  They are considered Indo-Aryans.

Islam was moderated in Indonesia, as the people themsleves are Malay stock,  and not as low as Kebbab racial types. 

If you don't include race in any sort of analysis, then you are missing out on an important variable.  

The peaceful "Meccan" phase of Islam resonates with stupid white women, and only later when it is too late, do they realize there is a more violent phase, the post Medina verses.  This is why white men, need to put their foot in the ass of white women.

Race, and Sex both have to be included. Also, women for the most part, do not invent - nor are they scientists, so they are not the main contributor for economic advancement.  Yes, there are always exceptions, but exceptions don't make the rule.

Stupid Islamic women are practically useless, and to let them be in some sort of political control would be a disaster.  It is a disaster already with Western societies led by women.  Islam does want their women to breed, and then Islamic children are caught in a naval gazing religion that leads them around in circles.  When an Imam issues a Fatwa, then the children are directed - usually outward toward dar al harb (the outside war).

Racially smarter people, like the Persians, are able to find some modus vivendi with their pathological religion.  Islam + Negroids = an explosive device.

The travel ban is a good start to mitigating the flow of muslims to America. The wall and better border checks are necessary to keep the flow from the South. Whoever is illegal in the US has the option to wander across the 49th into Winter Wonderland and line-up for their gender blender.
