I doubt anybody is going to let you inseminate them, mario, so you needn't concern yourself with what other women are doing with THEIR bodies.

Replacement Migration:
Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?



United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all
countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new
challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many
established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement
migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea,
Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the
European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would
need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

weaponless (controlled, unconscious, sleepwalking humans as weapons only) war against the people of the west -
in THE HEART OF EUROPE - in occupied Germany - Sweden is already lost.

This was their aim right from the beginning,
from 9/11 to the total destruction of the de facto disarmed European nations.
How long will Russia look on? This is the only question left.

Insider: The United States pay the traffickers to Europe!







An incredible accusation comes now from the ranks of Austrian intelligence: According to information of an employee of the "Austrian Defence Office" * to present findings about the fact that US organizations pay the smugglers, who bring daily thousands of refugees to Europe.

"Tractor demand exorbitant sums to bring refugees to Europe illegally. The conditions are often very poor, still does a transport current 7000 to 14,000 euros, according to region and tractors organization differently. "For police districts, which have daily to do with asylum seekers (alone in Erstaufnahmelager Traiskirchen are more than 100 officers in daily use) are Tug costs and states long been known. Even the suspicion that the United States in terms of geostrategic strategy fingers have with the game is voiced repeatedly. Few experts are willing to allow reliable information leaked, no one wants his full name to the public.

"There are insights that organizations from the US have created a co-financing model and contribute substantial amounts of tractor costs. Not every refugee from North Africa has 11,000 euros in cash. Nobody asks where the money comes from? "There prevails a strict news blackout on appropriate contexts. "Even the HNAA (Note .: Army News Agency) has received no information or may not pass it. It must to the public. There are the same arsonist at work that have plunged Ukraine into chaos a year ago. "

"Better than the Truth: Extra-Factual Sources of Threat Conception and Proliferation "

Table of Contents

Front Matter (pp. i-vi)
Table of Contents (pp. vii-viii)
Acknowledgments (pp. ix-xiv)

Introduction (pp. 1-11)

On October 11, 2004, the foreign ministers of the European Union met and agreed to lift all remaining sanctions on one-time international pariah state, Libya. This broad array of sanctions, which included a comprehensive arms embargo, had been in place since the 1980s following several high-profile Libyan-sponsored terrorist attacks within Western Europe. What catalyzed this dramatic shift in EU policy? Although relations between Libya and the European Union had been improving for some time, it was neither the Libyan decision to disband its weapons of mass destruction program nor its public repudiation of terrorism nor even its acceptance of responsibility...

1 Understanding the Coercive Power of Mass Migrations (pp. 12-74)

Coercion is generally understood to refer to the practice of inducing or preventing changes in political behavior through the use of threats, intimidation, or some other form of pressure—most commonly, military force. This book focuses on a very particular nonmilitary method of applying coercive pressure—the use of migration and refugee crises as instruments of persuasion. Conventional wisdom suggests this kind of coercion is rare at best.¹ Traditional international relations theory avers that it should rarely succeed. In fact, given the asymmetry in capabilities that tends to exist between would-be coercers and their generally more powerful targets, it should...

2 The 1994 Cuban Balseros Crisis and Its Historical Antecedents (pp. 75-130)

In August 1994, in the wake of some of the worst civil unrest Cuba had witnessed in decades, President Fidel Castro reversed his long-standing policy of arresting anyone who tried to escape the island by sea. Castro laid the blame for Cubaʹs domestic turmoil on the United States, claiming the riots were caused by rumors of a U.S.-sponsored boatlift to Miami. Castro then demanded that ʺeither the US take serious measures to guard their coasts, or we will stop putting obstacles in the way of people who want to leave the country, and we will stop putting obstacles in the...

3 “Now the Refugees Are the War”: NATO and the Kosovo Conflict (pp. 131-179)

On March 24, 1999, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) commenced the first military campaign in its fifty-year history—a bombing war over the tiny Yugoslav province of Kosovo.¹ Although NATO had been conceived as a defensive alliance, its first mission turned out to be an offensive one whose stated objectives were three: ʺto demonstrate the seriousness of NATOʹs purpose so that the Serbian leaders understand the imperative of reversing course,ʺ ʺto deter an even bloodier offensive against innocent civilians in Kosovo,ʺ and ʺif necessary to seriously damage the Serbian military’s capacity to harm the people of Kosovo.ʺ² It was...

4 An Invasion to Stop the Invasion: The United States and the Haitian Boatpeople Crises (pp. 180-226)

Even before being sworn in for his first term as U.S. president—and leader of the worldʹs sole remaining superpower—William Jefferson Clinton made the first foreign policy decision of his administration. Remarkably, perhaps, Clintonʹs initial foreign policy decision was not about the future of Russian nuclear weapons, the Iraqi no-fly zone, or even the future of the NATO alliance. Instead, it was a decision about how to deal with would-be asylum seekers from the tiny island nation of Haiti.¹

Responding to the George H. W. Bush administrationʹs treatment of those fleeing the repressive rule of the junta that had...

5 North Korean Migrants, Nongovernmental Organizations, and Nuclear Weapons (pp. 227-261)

The 1990s were a tough decade for the North Koreans. In 1991, they lost their superpower patron with the fall of the Soviet Union, and in 1994, they lost their patron saint with the death of the Great Leader Kim Il Sung, who had ruled North Korea since its founding shortly after World War II. For not wholly unrelated reasons, the 1990s were also marked by a series of devastating famines, which resulted in the deaths of between several hundred thousand and several million North Koreans¹ and the flight of several hundred thousand more across the Tumen River and into...

6 Conclusions and Policy Implications (pp. 262-284)

After the 1999 Kosovo conflict, it was widely argued that a new and different armament—the refugee as weapon—had entered the arsenals of the world. One scholar even went so far as to declare, ʺthe nature of war [itself] has changed; now the refugees are the war.ʺ¹ As I have demonstrated, however, the instrumental exploitation of engineered cross-border migrations is neither a new nor a particularly unusual phenomenon. Rather, such exploitation has a long and influential history that includes both war and peacetime use. Indeed, in this book I have identified at least fifty-six attempted cases of migration-driven coercion...

Podcast:
www.rsc.ox.ac.uk/news/weapons-of-mass-migration-forced-displacement-coercion-and-foreign-policy-kelly-m-greenhill

In this seminar, Professor Greenhill examines an understudied, yet relatively common, bargaining tool and method of persuasion: namely, the use of migration and refugee crises as non-military instruments of state-level coercion. Who employs this unconventional weapon, how often it succeeds and fails, how and why this kind of coercion ever works, and how targets may combat this unorthodox brand of coercion will be explored. Contemporary cases, including Libya, Syria, North Korea, Cuba and Kosovo are discussed, as are the sometimes-devastating humanitarian implications of engineered migration crises. The talk is drawn in part from Professor Greenhill's book of the same name, which received the International Studies Association's Best Book of the Year Award.


About the speaker

Kelly M Greenhill is Associate Professor at Tufts University and Research Associate and Chair of the Conflict, Security and Public Policy Working Group at Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Belfer Center (BCSIA). Shel also serves as Associate Editor of the journal Security Studies. Much of her research focuses on the use of military force and what are frequently called 'new security challenges', including civil wars; the use of forced migration as a weapon; military intervention and (counter-) insurgency; foreign and defence policy; and international crime as a challenge to domestic governance.

She is author of Weapons of Mass Migration: Forced Displacement, Coercion and Foreign Policy (Cornell Studies in Security Affairs), co-author and co-editor of Sex, Drugs and Body Counts: The Politics of Numbers in Global Crime and Conflict (Cornell) and The Use of Force, 8th edition. Her research has also appeared in a variety of other venues, including in the journals International Security, Security Studies, Civil Wars, and International Migration, in media outlets such as the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, and the British Broadcasting Company, and in briefs prepared for the U.S. Supreme Court and other organs of the U.S. government. She is currently completing a new monograph, a cross-national study that explores why, when and under what conditions contested sources of political information–such as rumours, conspiracy theories and myths–materially influence the development and conduct of states’ foreign and defence policy.

Outside of academia, Professor Greenhill has served as a consultant to the US government as well as to the Ford Foundation, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the World Bank.

Fallingbostel is a nice place, very friendly locals. not a few of the German lasses married British soldiers stationed at the barracks. I spent some time there back in army days. Never ever came across any Germans who espoused your own particular red neck type sentiments Pfiz. The locals were glad of the employment opportunities that our 'occupying' army afforded them. People got on well.

Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants






Summit for Refugees and Migrants - 19 September 2016 - UNHQ in New York.








The UN General Assembly will host a high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants, with the aim of bringing countries together behind a more humane and coordinated approach.

This is the first time the General Assembly has called for a summit at the Heads of State and Government level on large movements of refugees and migrants and it is a historic opportunity to come up with a blueprint for a better international response. It is a watershed moment to strengthen governance of international migration and a unique opportunity for creating a more responsible, predictable system for responding to large movements of refugees and migrants.

Rewatch the Summit

You can rewatch the Summit through the links to UNTV below and also view the statements.

Is there a related event on 20 September 2016?

Also on the margins of the General Assembly, on 20 September 2016, the United States President Obama is hosting the Leaders' Summit on Refugees, alongside co-hosts Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden, which will appeal to governments to pledge significant new commitments on refugees. While the Leaders' Summit will focus on refugees, not migrants, the General Assembly High-Level Summit will address large movements of both. The two events will complement one another.

Jonathan Bowden - from his talk, 'Western Civilization Bites Back'




Multiculturalism and the Racialization of Politics in the United States, by Kevin MacDonald:

Loyalty to the group, sacrifice for it, hatred and contempt for outsiders, brotherhood within, warlikeness without—all grow together, common products of the same situation. It is sanctified by connection with religion. Men of an others-group are outsiders with whose ancestors the ancestors of the we-group waged war. . . . Each group nourishes its own pride and vanity, boasts itself superior, exalts its own divinities, and looks with contempt on outsiders. Each group thinks its own folkways the only right ones, and if it observes that other groups have other folkways, these excite its scorn.

This essentially states that for humans, identifying as a member of an ingroup is a source of conflict with other groups. We are all aware that around the world there are many countries that are engulfed in conflict stemming from religious and ethnic differences—from different social identities. Right now the civil war in Syria is a good example, pitting Sunnis against Shiites, and within these larger groupings there are particular ethnic groups, such as Alewites, Arabs, Kurds, Druze, and Assyrians. Azerbaijan is no stranger to ethnic conflict, as in the war with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh.

In Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan, American military interventions were justified to the American people and to the world in moral terms — as promoting democracy and human rights. However, the results have done nothing to reduce the ethnic and religious divisions within these societies, and there is no end in sight for armed conflict and terrorism. After 10 years of occupation by American forces, we read about daily bombings in Iraq in which dozens of people die.

Nevertheless, the ideology that multiculturalism is a superior form of social organization is dominant among American elites and throughout the West with the result that these societies are actively seeking to have increasing ethnic diversity. Those of us who oppose this policy are labeled as “racists” and “haters,” but the belief that increasing diversity is linked to greater conflict is well established by scientific research.

There has been a substantial amount of psychological research related to groups. A study by Sherif et al. is classic. They found that when randomly chosen groups of boys engaged in between-group competition, group membership became an important aspect of personal identity. The groups developed negative stereotypes of each other and were transformed into groups of “wicked, disturbed, and vicious” children.

Remember, these groups were randomly chosen and therefore much less emotionally compelling than naturally occurring ethnic or religious groups where people are born into them and have a long history of being socialized within the group. It’s clear from this study that fear and dislike of outgroups are easily developed.

Social identity research shows that people are highly prone to identifying themselves with groups. There is a tendency to conceptualize both ingroups and especially outgroups as more homogeneous than they really are. That is, we ignore differences among outgroup members and we exaggerate their negative qualities. The stereotypic behavior and attitudes of the ingroup are positively valued, while outgroup behavior and attitudes are negatively valued.

The result of these categorization processes is discrimination in favor of the ingroup; beliefs in the superiority of the ingroup and inferiority of the outgroup; and positive emotional preference for the ingroup and negative feelings directed toward the outgroup. We see these things even in randomly constructed groups, but these tendencies toward ingroup cohesiveness and devaluation of the outgroup are exacerbated by real conflicts of interest between naturally occurring groups.

These studies attest to the power of “groupness” in the human mind—the tendency for even the most randomly constructed groups to elicit discrimination against outgroups. The implication is that ethnic- and religious-based groups, which are not at all randomly constructed, have much stronger tendencies toward negative attitudes toward outgroups.

As an evolutionary psychologist, I have described several sources of evidence that social identity processes are a universal feature of the human mind.

Social identity processes also are exacerbated in times of resource competition or other perceived sources of threat. This has grave implications for ethnically and religiously divided societies. Relations between groups may be fine when economic prospects are good for everyone, but in times of crisis there is competition between groups for resources. Anthropological research on pre-state societies has found that “hard times” and expanding populations are often associated with warfare. On the other hand, external threats tend to reduce internal divisions and maximize perceptions of common interest among ingroup members.

It is one thing to encourage multiculturalism in a society with a large and stable ethnic majority. I am all for treating minorities equitably and without discrimination. There is no question that legal prohibitions and mass media messages can have the effect of blunting the most extreme forms of intergroup conflict and hostility resulting from social identity processes.

However, it is quite another thing to encourage multiculturalism as an ideology of mass immigration that will make the former majority into a minority. Under these circumstances, the majority will be rightly concerned about loss of sovereignty and fear of domination by other groups.

This bears emphasis. Throughout many parts of the world, particularly in the Middle East, there are multiethnic societies. In many cases these groups have lived together for hundreds of years, not always harmoniously but far more commonly in relationships of dominance and subordination. In the contemporary world, we see some of the governments of such societies loudly proclaiming their commitment to multiculturalism and their historical diversity. For example, Azerbaijan speaks proudly of its commitment to peaceful tolerance of non-Azeri ethnic groups. But no Azeri would advocate an immigration policy that would admit other peoples so that the Azeri majority would become a minority. Recently, Azerbaijan has announced that it will pursue any and all means to regain the Nagorno-Karabakh region taken by Armenia 20 years ago. One million Azerbaijanis left the area rather than be ruled by the Armenians. For their part, the Armenians have destroyed historical monuments and other cultural remnants of the Azeri presence in the area. These Azeris have implicitly rejected a multicultural solution in which they would be a majority dominated by an Armenian minority—for good reason. www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2013/11/multiculturalism-and-the-racialization-of-politics-in-the-united-states/

"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe
