I don’t understand why the EU are sending Syrian asylum seekers back to Turkey only to collect another bunch from Turkey and bring them back to the EU! I originally thought this was about taking the economic migrants from Afghanistan or Iraq back, but it’s actually swapping Syrian for Syrian. If this is a Tony Abbott exercise in ‘Stopping the boats’ (presumably to save lives) then why not just stop any further boats, and build processing centres in Turkey? Why move Syrians back to Turkey where they will probably end up going through another processing centre only to come back again later on? And why oh why didn’t the west start a ‘policing action’ war against the Assad regime when this thing fell apart 5 years ago to prevent all this in the first place?
