#1 Devious bastards. Somebody bought off the Gregoretti crew. Why the rescue ? Why not drop 'em off at Malta itself ?

#2 What happened to Africa? Drop them off there, or within swimming distance.

#3 Maybe nations of the world can contribute to setting up floating barges, or unused drilling platforms and structures amid sea, artificial islands etc. Like that stupid Sealand place ? Somewhere to drop off these miserable 'citizens of no country' until their admission is decided. The UN sponsored NGOs and Soros and his blue bleeding heart friends can feed them all they want there.

#4 Why not use those fabulous machine guns that their coast guard boats come with while they are still in the water instead?

#5 Return them to Malta which was the nearest harbour
Charge the captain with endangering people at sea.

#6 Funny how you or I would be in big trouble without a passport, but no worries for these jamokes...

#7 Really is amazing, tens of thousands streaming across our southern border. Contrast that with returning to the United States from overseas and the long lines at US Customs in the Atlanta Airport International Terminal.

#8 What pushes these beasts of no nation
To sashay all over creation?
Some blame public health
Or the building of wealth
Or Big Oil for this dark inundation.
"Lights, seeds, magic soil?
General easing of toil?"
"And the seizure of leisure
To head for the seashore!"
"Meds, mobiles, and mass transportation?"

Shriek sellers of worldly salvation,
"Bosh! Racism! Hate! Exploitation!"

#10 And maybe "saints" for "beasts". But where to stop if I once start editing? Sheesh.

#12 beasts of no nation

I looked up Fela Kuti. What a vile human being, and so typical of the time. Definitely not a saint, Zenobia F.

Incidentally, Malta doesn’t want them either, and probably refused permission to dock and disembark this particular lot of passengers.
