  1. As massive as the refugee problem is and as reprehensible as the people smugglers are, there is absolutely no comparison with the lying, ‘empire-thinking, sociopathic bastards of PNAC and the Bush administration war schemers and war criminal plotters like; William Kristol, Robert Kagan (Nuland), Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Elliot Abrams, John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George Bush, and the neoliberal-con enablers who share insane leadership of this dual-party Vichy facade of the Disguised Global Crony-Capitalist Empire that is HQed in, and merely ‘poses’ as, our former country, which is the cancerous CAUSE of and this destruction, slaughter, and mutilation of civilians and children of the Middle East — for which each of them and their partners in crime of Wall Street, weapon making corporate ‘merchants of death’, and oil wholes should be hung a hundred times by God for every child they murdered.

    [Not that I would hold a grudge against these ruling empire bastards]

    BTW, a special spot in hell should be reserved for the media/propaganda-sector of the DGCC Empire which shilled and sold this insane set of war crimes to the American people as being necessary for national security reasonable sounding lies!

  2. Plus ca change…

    A drowned 3-year-old, 72 would-be immigrants suffocating in a locked truck trailer… the news is full of migrants suffering, and dying.

    plus ?a change, plus c’est la même chose (“the more it changes, the more it’s the same thing”) Human history displays such horrors as far back as we have records (or physical evidence). Of course there’s a noble side too — but do we collectively get to the roots of these phenomena and make personal sacrifices to mitigate them?

    1. Little boy died,like many others because of his father greed.As Iraqi couple who was on the boat and lost 2 children too ,told police little boy father was working with smuglers. He basically killed his sons,wife and 10 others.
      Get a grip on the reality.

  3. Another scare-mongering feels piece by someone who has no investment in the situation.

    90% of these refugees are fighting-age males leaving their families behind, and the effect they are having on Europe is incredibly pronounced.

    Next time you feel that Europe or the United States is not “sharing the burden” effectively enough, I advise you to take the Paris metro line 12 north to the last stop, and then tell me if you still feel the same way.
