*DIE WELT: GERMANY HAS PLAN TO CLOSE BORDER TO AUSTRIA IMMEDIATELY, WILL USE WATER CANON AND TEAR GAS
*CLOSURE COULD HAPPEN IN TWO OR THREE WEEKS AS POLICE UNIONS WARN CONTINUATION OF BORDER CHECKS UNWORKABLE
*AUSTRIAN POLICE CONFIRM THEY WILL USE WATER CANON TO CLOSE BORDER IF NECESSARY
As a German politician told Reuters that “there is a risk February could start a countdown to the end”, Die Welt reports there is a plan in place to close the country’s borders immediately.
The plans to close the border to Austrian to stop the influx of migrants involves the use of water canon and tear gas.
And ultimately, of course, the police will use their weapons if even a small fraction of the billion migrants predicted to move north by Davos executive Klaus Schwab as oil prices collapse materialize.
The closure could come in the next two or three weeks as police unions have said plans the Merkel regime’s to continue border checks of illegal migrants are unworkable given the massive numbers involved.
Austrian police are also preparing to use water canon to close the border if necessary.
Austria is also deploying troops to the border with Slovenia.
