The Iraq war and the accompanying power vacuum that allowed ISIS to rise to power is on us. We apologize. However, the Syrian civil war, Boko Harem’s various terrorist activities, and the war between Russia and Ukraine were all going to happen anyway. The U.S. may have not helped those things. However, the U.S. is not at fault for those things either. In addition to all of that, Europe is richer than Africa or the Middle East so many people would undoubtedly choose to move to Europe from those places for economic reasons regardless of U.S. foreign policy. The migrant crisis and the war in Ukraine are not the U.S.A.’s responsibility.

It could come from France. France has an effective diplomatic apparatus and military apparatus, which in foreign policy is usually more useful than a strong economy and massive population.

This is no time for sensitivity. Islam is not an invading nation nor an internal ethnic scape goat. It is a religion of zealots that are trained to overthrow all that is not Islam. It knows no racism, but evaluates all simply based loyalty to a violent and perverse profit.

Whatever they do now is akin to trying to fix a foot long gash with a band-aid. This begs the question of just how did this massive wound appear in the first place? Well, we just have to thank the “global force for peace” and its Anglo sidekick for lending a helping hand in destabilizing Iraq and Syria in the first place.

Nazi Germany and Stalinist Soviet Union were allies when they began WWII by together and in cooperation attacking and dismembering Poland out of existence. Maybe if the left had not hijacked European education system that plain objective fact would not so easily be forgotten.
And the issue with refugees is to robustly help solve the problem at the source. A mass murdering regime is running northern Syria and northern Iraq. They need to be confronted militarily and defeated in detail.
Opening borders just means the 2 billion people in Eurasia and Africa who make 1/6th or less of what Europeans make, will come. And who can blame them?

Maybe if they had some direct say in how we conduct our foreign affairs, they wouldn’t be in this predicament.
