The prospect of another massive wave of Muslim invaders has alarmed European countries closest to Turkey, starting with Greece and Bulgaria.
Both governments have announced that they will tighten border security on both land and sea. The Bulgarian Defence Ministry has deployed a thousand more soldiers on the Turkish border.
Greece has not sent additional troops to the border but said it has authorized its border guards to stop refugees from entering.
? I’ve always been, and still am, averse to the “invader” label, but things have changed dramatically.
