In a wide-ranging speech at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that Germany had made a mistake during the 2015 refugee crisis. Not, she said, by welcoming asylum-seekers fleeing conflict, but by not preparing for their arrival as civil conflicts began cropping up across the Middle East and northern Africa.
The mistake was not to have paid attention to create an environment where people can stay in their own country, the chancellor said.
She warned that the mistake should not be repeated with Libya, where the conflict between the UN-backed government and rival commander Khalifa Haftar is destabilizing other nearby countries like Mali and Niger.
We have to do everything to ensure a peace process in Libya, Merkel said, to prevent another major humanitarian crisis and refugee influx. Berlin recently hosted talks between the warring sides in Libya, which ended in an agreement to limit foreign interference and commit to a UN arms embargo.

She’s been having more and more dreams of Ceausescu.
Oh Angela, your mistake was in continuing to welcome them even after you recognized there was a very serious problem. I believe it was deliberate on your part.
Your mistake was in encouraging it. And it was intentional, not a mistake.
And when she says refugees, I believe she's really talking about Muslims. And she welcomed them with open arms.
Love how they CTA when the BS hits the fan. Is she admitting she couldn’t figure this out years ago? If so, then her IQ would be about the same as a bag of hammers.
Your mistake was being an idiot as chancellor.
Prepared? She solicited it.
You should have paid attention to Jean Raspail.
The Aryan Urkle.
Mistakes were made.
Sorry, honey. Germany is giving you Das Boot up Der Heinie.
Yeah, I know Boot means boat...close enough.
“Arab Spring”. Who were the actual bozos who thought up that shite? Yah, Obama, but who were the brains behind that stillborn Frankenstein?
Ich bin gefallen und ich kann nicht aufstehen!
Your mistake was letting them in.
Precisely. She has destroyed most of the European West, per the NWO dictates. If Hillary had been elected, we’d be done for, too.
