New Goths?

Reader comment on item: [West Africa:] New Route to the West

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Jun 11, 2006 at 06:42

The trouble with "new Goths" vision or nightmare is that people's i.e. immgrants values don't change and their primary loyalty will be with the country or ethnic group of their origin rather than with the country of adoption. Anti-assimilationalist leftist/liberal/confused brigade will make it come true

Beware: the new goths are coming

Peter Almond

ONE of Britain's most senior military strategists has warned that western civilisation faces a threat on a par with the barbarian invasions that destroyed the Roman empire.

NI_MPU('middle'); In an apocalyptic vision of security dangers, Rear Admiral Chris Parry said future migrations would be comparable to the Goths and Vandals while north African "barbary" pirates could be attacking yachts and beaches in the Mediterranean within 10 years.

Europe, including Britain, could be undermined by large immigrant groups with little allegiance to their host countries — a "reverse colonisation" as Parry described it. These groups would stay connected to their homelands by the internet and cheap flights. The idea of assimilation was becoming redundant, he said.

The warnings by Parry of what could threaten Britain over the next 30 years were delivered to senior officers and industry experts at a conference last week. Parry, head of the development, concepts and doctrine centre at the Ministry of Defence, is charged with identifying the greatest challenges that will frame national security policy in the future.
