Child dies as boat carrying migrants capsizes off Lesbos

A child has died after a boat carrying migrants capsized off the Greek island of Lesbos. The makeshift boat was carrying 48 people, accompanied by the Turkish coastguard, when it entered Greek waters early Monday. Greek officials said the overturning of the boat was a ’common tactic’ used by traffickers to force a rescue.

Crazy idea here: but hear me out. Maybe, just maybe, people who bring their child on illegal, dangerous expedition for monetary gains and comfort on the backs of people they despise whom have built said benefits from generational sacrifices and valuing civility over bronze age morality: maybe THEY are the bad guys?

They purposely capsized the boat to force people to rescue them. And a child died as a result. What utter scums.

That sucks, but it's definitely NOT a reason for Europe to bring in more migrants.

Just give turkey the money they were promised and let Erdogan set up the safe zone he wanted (mobile homes set up to house the refugees). The EU promised to give him $6 billion so he could set this up and only delivered half the money. That's why refugees are flocking into Europe, he's let them.

it's so stupid to see people taking digs at the coastguard while the child died as a result of whomever brought it, not to mention undocumented migrants now carry the added potential of the c-virus.

We see it In Aus and the US. As governments welcome the illegal migrants, more and more try to come on this life threatening journey draging kids along that arn't even theirs to garner support. Simply enough the more accepting of questionalble refugees, the more women and children will die at sea, or in the desert.
