EU’s secret ultimatum to Afghanistan: accept 80,000 deportees or lose aid

When international donors and the Afghan government convene in Brussels next week, the EU secretly plans to threaten Afghanistan with a reduction in aid if the war-torn country does not accept at least 80,000 deported asylum seekers.

According to a leaked restricted memo (pdf), the EU will make some of its aid “migration sensitive”, even while acknowledging that security in Afghanistan is worsening.

Here’s a better idea. Cut off all aid to Afghanistan and airdrop them in.

    “Here’s a better idea. Cut off all aid to Afghanistan and airdrop them in.”

    I love this idea, the only adjustment I would make is to be sure to maximize the loading, find some way to increase the density.

      If you freeze them solid, they stack better… and they don’t cause disruptions in flight.

    I don’t see why Afghanistan wouldn’t agree, it would clearly be a revolving door. The deportees would arrive, Afghanistan keeps it’s aid, and probably even negotiates a little extra, then the deportees leave Afghanistan as soon as they can. Repeat as required.

    My not so secret idea: Accept 80 000 kilotons of TNT, and stop aid.

    This is confusing:
    Are the euroclowns referring to the to be embezzled aid, the disguised bribes aid, or the normally stolen outright aid?

    Canada has 25,000 spare muzzies we can send over. Some are in the liberal cabinet

      Then she’ll be arguing she’s Iranian and so can’t be deported “back” to Afghanistan!

      • robins111

        Based on the fact that she claimed to be a Stanie. Send her back anyway

    Afghan Flying lessons….toss ’em out of a helicopter and if they learn to fly before hitting the ground they go free.
