Anti-immigrant party takes first place in Sweden, poll shows

The anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats are the most popular political party in the Nordic country, according to a new poll.

Turkey plays nuclear card, warns EU it will flood Europe with millions of refugees

Angela Merkel’s fragile deal to keep migrants (displaced by US/EU wars) contained within Turkey’s borders is about to fall apart, and with it so too goes what is left of the European Union.
What is playing out could have been predicted back when the incompetent Merkel rushed off to Ankara to make a deal with Erdogan to stem the migrant flow.
