What some here called my "conspiracy theory" is now the theory of a number of NATO and EU leaders:
Quote
Russia and Syria are deliberately using migration as an aggressive strategy towards Europe, the senior Nato commander in Europe has said.

US Gen Philip Breedlove said they were "weaponising" migration to destabilise and undermine the continent.

He also suggested that criminals, extremists and fighters were hiding in the flow of migrants.

...On the road'

Gen Breedlove is the head of the US European Command as well as Nato's Supreme Allied Commander Europe.

He told the US Senate Armed Services Committee that the crisis was allowing Russia to use non-military means to create divisions in the Nato alliance and Europe.

Russia and Syria's leader Bashar al-Assad, Gen Breedlove said, were "deliberately weaponising migration in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve".

He cited the use of barrel bombs - unguided weapons - against civilians in Syria. The only purpose of these indiscriminate attacks was to terrorise Syrian citizens and "get them on the road" to create problems for other countries, Gen Breedlove said.

Gen Breedlove added that violent extremists, fighters and criminals - including elements from the extremist Islamic State group - were in the mix of migrants.

He said he had requested that more US forces be permanently based in Europe. Their numbers have dropped from a Cold War high of half a million to about 62,000.

Thanks for the link.  I was just going over this particular theory with a friend yesterday afternoon.  Glad to know I shop for my tinfoil at the same place as NATO.  :P

Bounce for LR thread

The theory makes sense when you consider that our illegal and dishonest involvement in Kosovo both caused Putin's ascension, and continues to give him his primary sense of mission.  Have spoken about this in other threads. Putin mentioned Kosovo as he invaded Crimea.  Said publicly, and with his typical vulgar references to violent aqnal sex (always classy Puti n ) he boasted about punishing the west for Kosovo.

What happened in Koosovo?  IMO Putin is determined to make Europe know what the Serbs feelt like when overrun by Muslims en masse.
