Had Angela Merkel told Syrian refugees the truth about Europe, that save for a little oil in the North Sea and stories about vampires, werewolves, and gremlins, Europe provides next to nothing in geopolitical value, Syrians would have stayed home.
Europe is resource-starved. It is why Europeans went on an empire-building binge for hundreds of years. Syrians are trying to invade Europe for jobs when the only reason invasions occur is for resources. Jobs aren’t resources. Jobs represent a temporary sprinkling of bread crumbs off of the master’s dining table.
Unfortunately for Syrians their oligarchy is led by a fellow that is too inept to create resources within Syria for his people’s exploitation.
