Italy Furious After Austria Deploys Troops, Armored Vehicles To Border

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.

That was my first thought last year as well.However I think as a first step it would be better escort the vessel back to its original departure point and disembark everyone.Then execute the crew and take the vessel back to the EU and scrap it (be green and don't polute the sea by sinking it).You do this a few  times and they will quit coming, which will keep you from having to resort to harsher measures (sinking vessels with everyone on board).Meanwhile investigate who is financing the whole thing and deal with them as you would with any War enemy. Make no mistake this is a war.

This is a non stop shuttle service that bring illegals to Italy via 2 vessels that park 10 miles off the Libyan coast every day and get loaded up with passengers who pay 2.000 Euro's each for their trip. The vessels are funded by a British Charity  called SAVE THE CHILDREN FUND, the same fund that finances the White Helmets in Syria. This so called charity receives huge funding from George Soros. they aim to destabilize Europe through mass flooding of individual countries with this low life scum. France Germany and Sweden are now multiculturally enriched "Coming to a town near you soon."

So ironic.   80 years ago, it would have been Austrians defending against potentially invading Italians.  Today, it is the entire continent - as one - against the third world (and their own treasonous leaders).  How prescient Hitler was in trying to unify Europa against invaders (in 1939 it was Jewish Bolsheviks).Italy would be wise to follow Austria's example.  However, without a southern land border, they should use their navy to keep the refuse from floating upon their shores.

Yes.   WHo backed him?  Well lots of puppet demonic goys like the Bushes, Ford, Watson, Rockefeller and others backing and funding the Nazis for Rothschild while Rothschild ran the Bolsheviks who murdered 25 million Christian Russians.The only leaders standing up against these devils are Putin, Assad, maybe the leaders in Czech Republic, NovoRussians like Zakarchenko, Nassrallah of Hezbollah and one or two others.  maybe the Chinese.

Donny Iris.Ah! LEAH!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnG4wlmaQpYIt's the best video version of the song that I've seen.OH...You're talking about Towlies...There's some 'afro' woman 'singer/entertainer' who goes by the name (whatever trips your trigger, nigger). I didn't actually know that until i went searching for a song which I remember that sounds like the word that you posted.Donny Iris was a total NERD (just like the members of DEVO).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRguZr0xCOcFucking sand niggers figured out to NOT bring a sword to a gunfight (despite their 7th-century mindset). I wonder where they got the idea from ('Bandar Bush', perhaps?)In the pantheon of Zoroastrian 'gods', I seem to recall that 'A'Lah' (the so-called 'god' of the MINOR, or CRESCENT MOON) was rated about 178 from the 'top'. REALLY. SERIOUSLY. HONESTLY. Some child-raping inbred fuck all of a sudden had an 'epiphany', and wrote a 'book' (I wonder if he transcribed it before or after he fucked HIS PET GOAT). Bush the YOUNGER stuck around during September 11, 2001, in some elementary school in Florida, reading a book entitled 'MY PET GOAT'.CCR did a song called 'Bad Moon Rising'. It's perhaps a PRESCIENT PREDICTION (or, maybe, just a 'CO-INKY-DINK'):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6iRNVwslM4How's THAT for 'herd redirection'?It's not about REDIRECTION.It's all about taking a TANGENTICAL COURSE, and following it out to it's inevitable outcome (wherever it goes, theoretically). THAT is how shit gets 'invented' and 'discovered' and FIGURED OUT.Try THIS ONE:http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=33&d=2020

Italy is exhibiting the same retardation as Germany. They are actually giving the Invaders a ride into their nation. At the very least they could intercept the boats and escort them back to the point of origin.Honey you are missing some details of the shipping operation-Soros professional rapefugee smuggler operationhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-04/something-strange-taking-place…

Why doesnt NATO set up temporary refugee camps around north africa where they can stay until they can return home?

What's that? They are mostly young and male and have no intention of returning home and are mostly fleeing poverty not death squads, while Syrians are fleeing US-armed and supported terror proxies?

Hmm... anyone recall that Iraq and AfPak war? Went on for years and no crisis of migrants, sorry refugees... sorry immivaders.

Curious.

Now, theres a war in Syria fought by mostly not-Syrian terrorists the US and friends support...

which has led to hundreds of thousands of Afghans, Somalians, and Congolese skipping a number of closer countries to head to Germany and Sweden for the free room, board, and rapin'?

It makes no sense other than as a *well funded and concerted* effort to destroy in 2 generations ethnic European majorities and facilitate the death of the nationalism that the One Worlders *and* Jewish/Zionist Global Cabal believe stands in their dreams' way.

KALERGI PLAN
+
ODED YINON PLAN
= fake migrant crisis

Want it to stop? Stop feeding and clothing and housing them.

If the governments and Leftist ethnomasochists *won*t stop doing so, then stop kicking in and force the collapse of the welfare state.

Or just start shooting the fuckers facilitating the immivasion because they are quite literally and deliberately destroying European civilization and have trampled the rights of the European peoples long enough.

Italy is like a drug addled whore whose legs and arms are being pinned to the ground by the ashkenazi mafia.  She is being dishonored and disgraced, and will likely perish as a result of it.The Kalergi plan is being executed WORLDWIDE, unless you are in Israel, then you are fine.

You expect shallow, naive sheep to actually think about the very valid questions you're asking? Is some show on netflix?I fully agree btw. The "social nets" are not for this. And not for people who never brought bread to the table! It's for people who did, were productive and paid taxes to have acces. Like insurance from the state. Not for these invading rats. Meanwhile our own are ignored and neglected for these sand flees? Unacceptable!Fuck the social state. I opt out and will do on my own. This exploitation is insane. All so "they" can fleece their pockets. If I could. Why work? Crime pays.
