Most people do not like to meddle in other people’s affairs, but apparently George Soros is not one to let things go awry on his watch. Soros is warning the European community that there is a significant challenge posed by their Russian neighbors to the stability of the Eurozone.
George Soros is known for the simple reason that he is never wrong. For a man who puts up 10 billion against the British currency, he is one person who does his homework before he speaks. There are many examples that can be cited to support an almost psychic ability of George Soros.
As a scholar and a graduate of the London School of Economics, George Soros has a better understanding of financial matters than most of us do. As he writes in his article Wake up, Europe, Russia is hell bent on trampling on the values that have been long observed by the European Union.
Soros’ problem with the European Union is that they cannot see this coming. It takes a man with no substantial interests in the EU to tell them that Russia does not have a friendly agenda.
According to Soros in NY Books, neither the United States nor any country in Europe wants to fight the Putin administration. This is very bad for the euro zone. When a country like Russia senses reluctance or fear, they move in for the kill.
Soros advises the European Union to look at the plight of Ukraine and what happened to Crimea. According to Soros even though Putin is respecting the agreements signed for a cease-fire, he is doing so on his own volition. This means he can start another assault if he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.
The beginning of a crisis is not a matter of if but that of when. Soros says that most of these countries have become selfish. People are only looking out for their own. No one cares about refugees or whether Crimean’s want to be in Russia or Ukraine.
Soros maintains that the European Union should award each person who genuinely seeks asylum a sum of $ 16,800. This will enable the refugee cater for necessities like housing, education and the costs of health insurance.
In reality, instead of the implementation of this asylum seekers plan, those charged with keeping law and order are the ones targeting the refugees and performing atrocities upon them.
Soros adds that the asylum crisis in Syria should be the number one agenda for the European Union but this does not mean that the other refugees should not be taken into account.
Of course, the care and response to any crisis should not be left to the neighbors alone and that is why Soros is calling for a global response. According to him, the United Nations should use its powers to call for action from its member states to help end the crisis in Syria and other countries around the glove in the same predicament.
