supersquidDo you disagree? Think about it in terms of America. Mexicans cross the border all the time seeking a better life because there country is so corrupt. I would rather see them take back their country than continue to seek refuge in America. And I know they would to. Would you want to leave your homeland and seek refuge in some foreign country because you were scared of persecution? Probably not.
Considering America was first settled by refugees fleeing religious persecution, this comment is highly ironic. Also when the persecution punishment or collateral causalty risk is death, would you really not flee? Bitch please.
The news in the USA is so censored that unless you've been on liveleak or some graphic reddit pages, you really can't grasp the horror that these people are running from.
As for Europe and the refugees, I understand the statement that Europe belongs to Europeans and agree that those countries need to fix their shit. The Middle East is some kind of crazy these days, however it's been like that for milleniums.
On the other hand, the europe/Europeans statement is kind of insane because most of the people who could have done something to change their country are there either causing trouble or fighting against it. 21.8% of syrian refugees are males 18-59, which in 4mil refugees is about 870,000 adult males. Considering sryia has a population of 18.43mil, that's not a huge percentage. The rest are either women of all ages or children less than 18 years old. 38.5% of refugees are less than 12 years old (1.54mil!!!).
What were you doing in 6th grade? Probably not expected to rebuild a country or fight off terrorist groups that elite militaries are struggling against.
I understand the security concerns and they are valid.
