As long as there are minerals under the soil that will never, ever, happen so yes, let the idiots drown until the word gets out that paying a human trafficker is no different than trying to swim to Florida. Maybe then they will turn their efforts toward overthrowing their corrupt “leaders.”
Depopulating some African wasteland plays right into the hands of the kleptocrats and arms merchants in DC, London, Paris, Bejing, and Moscow. Maybe letting the world watch them rot in the fields and on the streets outside government palaces is what it will take to stop “developed” nations from feeding this insanity. But as long as they vanish at sea or end up selling umbrellas and trinkets at Europeann tourist traps the trafficker market will bloom, with the help of those NGO’s and GO’s with a guilty conscience.
