Poland Suggests Using Refugees to Form an Army – Very Bad Idea


Nike-Riot

Poland’s foreign minister has proposed forming an army out of the refugee men arriving in Europe. His logic is that Poland could ill-afford to send its troops to the Middle East. That may sound good use of refugees, but there is a serious problem. If Europe creates an army out of refugees, Brussels will then have the power to defend itself from Europeans with an effective mercenary army. This is the most dangerous proposition ever for an army with no community ties to the people will easily be used to oppress the people. Just look at the history of the Nika Revolt in Byzantium as an example. The emperor used foreign troops to slaughter the protesters when the local army would not kill its own people.

  1. Arming Muslim refugees with largely unknown credentials and expecting loyalty?
    I suppose it’s no worse than the US training and arming ‘moderate rebels’ then being surprised when they wandered off with their arms and gave them to ISIS.

    Or, to put it simply, “INSANITY!”
