J. Michael Springmann is an attorney and former diplomat who lives and works in Washington, DC. He holds two degrees in international affairs in addition to his law degree.
Springmann spent nine years as a diplomat—five in Germany, two in India, and nearly two in Saudi Arabia—with the US Department of State. Prior to leaving the Department, he served in its Bureau of Intelligence and Research. He has belonged to a number of Arab and Muslim organizations and has received a Pro Bono Attorney of the Year award from the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
Now a writer and political commentator, Springmann is also the author of Visas for Al Qaeda: CIA Handouts That Rocked the World, which discusses America’s destabilization of the Balkans, South and Southwest Asia, and North Africa to achieve international goals.
Europe is under siege, flooded by wave after wave of migrants and refugees from destabilized nations. What drives this trend—and what awaits the continent if its borders collapse?
They come from across the Middle East, South Asia, North Africa—floods of refugees seeking sanctuary in Europe. Most are men. Some are terrorists. And all represent an ethnopolitical nightmare for the European Union.
What drives these migrants? Why, instead of seeking out nations with common ethnic and religious ties, do they instead head north and west,
where few speak their language or share a common culture?
In Goodbye,Europe? Hello, Chaos? Merkel’s Migrant Bomb, former diplomat J. Michael Springmann provides an in-depth analysis of the migrant flood, its causes, and what it means for Europe. Building on arguments put forward in his previous work, Visas for Al Qaeda: CIA Handouts That Rocked the World, the ex–State Department official and attorney reveals how US foreign policy created the crisis.
Destabilizing nations through invasion and espionage furthers US goals in the Middle East, he argues, creating migrant waves guided northward and westward to destabilize the European Union in general and Germany in particular. Germany’s own refugee program, designed to exploit migrants as cheap labor, made US intelligence efforts all the easier.
Springmann’s insider knowledge of US policy permeates this insightful, sometimes terrifying look at a world where migrants become weapons, nationalism is condemned, and civil liberties hang in the balance.
As the world watches the destruction of Syria and the flood of refugees into Europe, few bother to ask some important questions: Who benefits? Who provides refugees with the resources they need to head north and west? Why are most migrants male, and why is Europe a favored destination?
J. Michael Springmann, author of Visas for Al Qaeda: CIA Handouts That Rocked the World, offers answers to these questions. He argues that forced migration is a subtle form of warfare waged by US foreign policy with a double intent: to destabilize Middle Eastern nations and weaken Europe.
As refugee numbers skyrocket, cultural and national conflicts in Europe seem inevitable. The wheels have been set in motion—and chaos is on the horizon.
