THIS MONTH'S QUIPS & QUOTES:
"If Europe leaves us (Greece) in the crisis, we will flood it with migrants, and even worse for Berlin if in that wave of millions of economic migrants there will be some jihadis of the Islamic State too.
Safety and Security...Safety and Security...Safety and Security
If they strike us, we will strike them. We will give to migrants from everywhere the documents they need to travel in the Schengen area, so that the human wave could go straight to Berlin."
... Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos
The Australian, March 11th 2015.
*Is he serious! With friends like these who needs enemies? How can the European Union possibly continue?
"I say fame is the new cocaine; everybody wants it and when you want coke and don't have money, you get desperate... and when you have fame and no talent, you get equally desperate."
... Actor-director-comedian Chris Rock
The Australian, March 11th 2015.
"I know China probably has the ability to turn off our electricity supply... and if they are busy (developing the capacity to target infrastructure, communications and weapons networks) then there are others that are busy too.
The warfare of the 21st century is going to be fought over the internet and cyberspace before a shot is fired... and it is being fought right now in terms of espionage and the capacity to sabotage your potential opponents war-fighting capabilities."
... David Irvine, former head
Australian Security Intelligence Org,
AFR March 9, 2015.
"A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy.
A decent girl won't roam around at 9 o'clock at night... Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes."
... Mukesh Singh, New Delhi, India
AP March 5, 2015.
*Singh was one of 4 men convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and subsequent death of a 23 year-old woman. He showed no remorse and insisted their death penalty would only endanger women even more... "Now when they rape, they won't leave the girl like we did (horribly injured). They will kill her."

Luckily, his instructor quickly realized what had happened and managed on his second attempt to reach the unconscious man and release his parachute.

Older Man Smuggles Young Wife in Suitcase: ... March 16, 2015.
A Frenchman in his 60's was detained on the Polish border after border guards found a young Russian woman (in her 30's) stuffed into his suitcase.
Turns out he was trying to smuggle his new non-EU Russian bride into Europe. They were traveling from Moscow to Nice, France. Luckily "she was alive and well and didn't require medical attention".
Someone should have told him she could have comfortably sat next to him instead. The Schengen travel zone is passport free and non-EU citizen spouses are allowed entry.
