I hope at least one of them finds a new gig as a comedian. "Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I've just flown in from Nigeria and boy, are my arms tired ..."

Of course unless you are stupid enough to think that they will be full of immigrants at the time.

Yes indeed. In Australia, the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd government destroyed every boat that fell into their hands (once the illegal immigrants had disembarked in Australia of course) but the boats kept on coming and coming and coming....

Europe's perils are huge, given that instead of sending them back, the EU is set on divvying the arrivals up and spreading them out across "the federation". Meanwhile, ISIS are executing their plans:

The need for the UK to withdraw from the EU has never been greater.

So the UK and the EU should do nothing, thousands will continue to drown, and tens thousands more land in Italy and be dispersed throughout Europe and the UK .

By the way the Eu plan is to destroy the boats in N Africa thus denying their use to the smugglers .

You could think that the last thing those opposed to the EU and efforts to reduce the impact of the immigrant and refugee probkem is any effort to solve it.

Remove the bogeyman of immigration then what has UKIP got left, the Tories have already taken back the referendum argument

So how will these boats be identified? will they have big targets on them?

I suggest that you do some research on the subject.
There are a number of ports on te North Africac coast in Libya and Tunisia which are controlled by militias who charge a fortune to those desperate to get to Europe.4It is suggested that special forces will be used to destroy any suspect shipping in these ports.
The military have access to sateliites drones etc.

Keep up !!

yep EMR exactly and what I think TGA is missing is that what is proposed is exactly what Italy did with the permission of the Albanian Government a few years back -and it worked then. There is a clear precedent that it can work.

Agree EMR The Americans destroyed the Libyian Navy during the 'axis of evil' conflict Libya now claims to only have 10 rubber boats! Should be easy therefore to identify anything else in the harbours

Countries..EU or otherwise can no longer sit quietly by and receive these boatloads of human horror.They have to take action at source.

Maybe the solution is to look at those countries with masses of room small populations and a wealth of undeveloped natural resources.
One such continent in the southern oceans comes to mind.
If some think the problems Europe is facing are a problem then just think what would happen when tens millions in Asia start to move.
We are already seeing the problems of internal strife in Myanma, just look at the scenario of religious strife in Indonesia if non Muslim minorities felt in danger and took to the seas.How many millions would flee N Korea if they had the chance ?
You cannot rule anything out in todays unhappy world. The problems Europe is facing will be repeated elsewhere in the world in the years ahead.
