Give the Devil His Due
The devil let out a big round of applause as Merkel reached an agreement with Turkey that will open the floodgates for 75 million Turkish citizens to pour into Eurozone countries.
As part of the deal, the devil also demanded and received more cash.
Merkel caved in for political expediency. In the process, senior EU diplomats accused the chancellor of backstabbing. Others described Merkel’s methods “brutal”.
In the end, political expediency won out over common sense. It always does.
