So the French think the chap who entered Greece in October is the same one who bombed Paris.

If true, this backs what a lot of us have been saying for some time, which is that the current response to the refugee crisis is untenable.

Forcing people to risk drowning in the Aegean benefits neither them nor Europe – since it makes Europe beholden to 1) chaos and 2) criminals

Simultaneously, this does not mean those who'd like to close the borders, or whatever, were right.

It is impossible to close Europe's southern border – because Europe is not Australia. It lies 6 miles from Turkey.

People will keep coming, whether we like it or not. So the choice is therefore not between the current chaos and no migration at all.
