Turkey Blackmails Europe

The EU would have the world believe that it has "resolved" the refugee crisis.

As per the BBC:

The EU heads said "bold moves" were needed to tackle the crisis, and made the following proposals:
  • All new irregular migrants crossing from Turkey to the Greek islands will be returned to Turkey, with the EU meeting the costs. Irregular migrants means all those outside normal transit procedures, ie without documentation. The term "illegal migration" usually refers to people smuggling
  • In exchange for every returned Syrian, one Syrian from Turkey will be resettled in the EU
  • Plans to ease access to the EU for Turkish citizens will be speeded up, with a view to allowing visa-free travel by June 2016
  • EU payment of €3bn ($3.3bn; £2.2bn) promised in October will be speeded up, and a decision will be made on additional funding to help Turkey deal with the crisis. Turkey reportedly asked for EU aid to be increased to €6bn
  • Preparations will be made for a decision on the opening of new chapters in talks on EU membership for Turkey
The reality is that Turkey, not content with shooting down Russian aircraft, banning freedom of speech and supporting ISIS has blackmailed the EU to pay it blood money and speed up its membership application for the EU; using refugees as the instrument of blackmail.

The EU has caved in to the nascent dictatorship and sponsor of terror that Erdogan has turned Turkey into.
