“Mama” Merkel in the news trying to extricate Germany from the “chaos” she created!

Invasion of Europe news….
Merkel is calling on Russia and the United States to do something!
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is busy these days casting about to save herself (and keep the EU from imploding!) in the wake of criticism that she and Germany began the stampede of migrants from, not just Syria, but from throughout the Middle East and North Africa as well.
BTW, the mostly economic migrants (not legitimate refugees!) themselves began the practice of calling Merkel “Mama” here.
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović puts the blame where it belongs—on ‘Mama.’ Anyone with half a brain could see the pile-up coming as Germany first opened its borders and then abruptly closed them.
From The Telegraph (hat tip: Kurt):
Angela Merkel is responsible for the current refugee crisis in Europe, the president of Croatia has claimed.
In unusually blunt and undiplomatic language, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović accused Mrs Merkel of causing “chaos”.
“Mrs Merkel called them, and now she’s pulled the handbrake by saying Germany cannot absorb all these economic migrants,” Mrs Grabar-Kitarović told Croatian television.
“She makes out as if she wasn’t aware that pulling the handbrake when so many cars were on the road would cause chaos. This needs to be resolved now.”
Croatia has been struggling to cope with the influx of thousands of refugees since Hungary closed its border to them last week.
Most are trying to find a new route to Germany since the route through Hungary became impassable.
In August, as other countries turned them away, Mrs Merkel pledged that Germany would take in Syrian refugees.
But as German cities quickly ran out of places in refugee shelters, her government reimposed border controls nine days ago.
Here Merkel is calling on Russia and the US. What are we supposed to do, other than destroy ISIS and it looks like Russia is going to beat us to that (Obama is in no rush)?
And, here she is at Deutsche Welle calling for a “fair” distribution of the migrants (the vast majority are NOT Syrians). You can imagine the outrage in those smaller, formerly Eastern European bloc, countries (like Croatia) that didn’t invite the migrants to Europe, as did Merkel, apparently driven by wanting Germany to look generous and “welcoming.”
This line is buried at the end of the Deutsche Welle article:
Opposition Left party deputy group leader Sahra Wagenknecht said Germany’s poor, not its wealthy elite, would be hit by diversion of monies to fund the integration of refugees.
Here, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban rejects Merkel’s “moral imperialism.”
