Britain and France Start the Whole Libya Thing

Bombs flying, people dying, “Kill Qadaffi”, blahblahblah, Senator John McCain praises “heroic” rebels, probably gets knocked in the head by flying debris again, blahblahblah.

Understandably, people want OUT.

Apparently, in scenes vaguely reminiscent of the Mariel boatlift, they’re trying ~ packed into anything that’ll sort of float.

Italian coast guard sailors rescued more than 500 refugees from Libya after their boat had crashed against a rock off the island of Lampedusa, where the migrant crisis continues.

The boat was steaming toward the harbor of Lampedusa Sunday when its steering failed, causing it to turn sharply and sending it crashing into the rocks, Agenzia Giornalistica Italia reported.

The problem is, EVERYBODY wants out, thanks to the upbeat nature of the NATO campaign:

…”The bombs forced us to flee. Right now the situation in Libya doesn’t leave us any choice,” a refugee from Pakistan was quoted as saying by Italian news agency ANSA.

Lampedusa is an itty bitty, teeny tiny Italian island south west of Sicily that’s getting really crowded REAL fast.

…An estimated 30,000 migrants have arrived on the tiny island of Lampedusa since January, when a wave of pro-democracy revolutions began to sweep North Africa and the Middle East. In April, Tunisia agreed to take back migrants who had fled the country following the revolution there.

Italy needs help and is looking to the EU. Aid agencies are understandably forecasting a humanitarian crisis. And you’ll never guess what. The French are horrified ~ sacré bleu fromage HORRIFIED, mind you ~ at the very thought of ANY of the filthy, great unwashed heading their way, even though…they sort of caused the migration of desperation to begin with. BUT NEVER MIND!

…The refugee crisis has alarmed European politicians and led to conflicts between Italy and neighboring France over a possible migrant influx. Several European politicians have called for temporarily suspending the Schengen free-travel agreement and reinstate border checks because of the migrant wave.

Oh, God bless those vaunted, superior beings, the Europeans. People crashing onto rocks and dying, or being dumped into the ocean and paddling until they can paddle no further and they sink beneath the waves doesn’t “ALARM” European politicians. What “ALARMS” them is the fact that they MIGHT actually be successful in their attempt to flee and LIVE!!! MAKE IT OUT ALIVE, as it were. Yes, our brethren to the East are indeed the civilized folks we have long been regaled with in tales of old. Don’t sweat the sufferer, François ~ dread the SURVIVOR! ‘Tis he who sows the seeds of your discomfort.

So swing into action, old guard. That’s the answer then! Bottle them up in the old boot and feed the Italians some coin to allay the cost. The EU’s something to be proud of.

Let’s go get us some Muammar ass, shall we?

Now, who will stand on eizer hand and hold zees bridge…and have a beaujolais and baguette afterward wees moi?

I can’t wait for the next lecture on Human Rights from the Across the Pond Scum Club.

    Screw the Euroweenies; they still haven’t gotten past needing help with WWI and WWII.

    I heard the Pope had to scold them about being compassionate. You know they’re in big trouble then.

    I can’t believe that frog is smoking…on the internet!

    Didn’t the French and Italians start this way back with colonization and that little dustup 70 years ago?

  6. major dad says:

    On the other hand who would want thousands of mostly illiterate Muslims dumped in their country who will shortly be demanding all kinds of benefits while not assimilating or wanting to? You reap what you sow. Morons…

    One of those frogs would make perfect company for Mortimer.

  8. tree hugging sister says:

    Mortimer is building a fence and demanding proof of legal immigration papers of all the backyard toads now thanks to you, Yo. It’s a little Eden no longer…

  9. JeffS says:

    You reap what you sow. Morons…

    Come to think of it, the Euroweenies can’t stop the refugees without having angry yoots going on a car BBQ rampage, can they?

    The stage is set, then, for the final phase of Europe’s downfall….
