    Proxy Middle East war heats up

    Russia has been supporting Syria for years against, well, all comers. Some months ago NATO member Turkey decided to launch a military offensive inside Syria which has heated up of late and became far more serious overnight when Turkey shot down two Syrian fighter jets.

    Meanwhile Turkey has been paid to shelter millions of Syrian and other refugees for years. Turkey's leader has asked allies for support in their (illegal) invasion of Syria lest he would open border crossings so that those refugees could attempt to cross into Greece, the gateway to other EU countries. Yesterday he did just that.

    Greece will let them in. Saying they won't is for public consumption. Greeks are really peed off but what can an unarmed population do?

    They could hang some politicians and bankers upside down from lampposts, but as much as they've suffered during the past decade they evidently need to starve before getting their arses into gear.
