    Wow. The video of the Greek official, denying everything during the official interview (whilst seeing video of a migrant woman and her child, forced onto a boat by armed men, who were then left in a dinghy to float towards Turkey), then caught with a hot mic during the break, talking to a colleague, saying:

    “I haven’t told them much, right? It’s very clear, isn’t it. It’s not nuclear physics. I don’t know why they did it in broad daylight… It’s… obviously illegal. It’s an international crime.”

    This migrant crisis will only get worse.

      “That’s something that happens. The migrants travelling the Aegean Sea, very often they abandon the children. They don’t seem to have the same… affection we have for children.”

      The blatant dehumanisation is sickening as well.

        Yes that bit caught me off guard. How this dude just said migrants don’t care about their children… Like, my brother in christ, why do you think they’re fighting so hard to migrate somewhere better?
