WE DID **** NOTHING and stood by while we could have safely harbored them from danger.


I am all for wiping out ISIS to the last man and woman and doing our best to creat an environment where they can safety return home so that is not doing nothing.

But once more our responsible is first and foremost the safety of our own damn children such as the ones who was killed or cripple by the Boston bombers two brothers that we did in fact take in and harbored from danger.

In fact allowing the one brother to become a citizen where he took an oath of loyalty not that long before he sat one bomb next to a child and then walked away.

@tsarstepan,
I hear-tell there's a petition circulatin around that has already been signed by 49 States.

It demands that the inscription on the Statue of Liberty be scribbled out, and replaced with:

"Stay the **** out, alla yawl aliens."

So? The two brothers was at the time children from a family that we took in after their family claimed /ask for asylum that share the same religion as the Muslims refugees and who excused for the killings was they did not care for our actions in the middle east against their Muslim "brothers".

You are free to explain how the Syrian refugees who come from an area that have ISIS in control of large areas would be less of a risk then those two brothers from Kyrgyzstani????????

Off hand none of those groups had threaten the US or taken any actions that might be consider terrorism outside of either Ireland or the UK.

Second their "religion" war not only is limited in scope but there had been agreements between them and the UK government that had greatly reduce the fighting and the violence over the last few decades.

When ISIS agree to disarmed and stop the fighting as the IRA and the other groups did and share power with the others religions please let me know.

On 7 August 2001, the IRA agreed on a method of destroying its arsenal. Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at the time, described the breakthrough as "significant" and "historic". Gen. John de Chastelain of Canada, chairman of the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning, said the proposals had been accepted by the panel as ones that would "put I.R.A. arms completely and verifiably beyond use." The Ulster Unionists had said they would no longer take part in the Northern Ireland Assembly if the IRA did not begin disarming. The announcement came after meetings between the commission and a representative of the IRA.[6]
After the September 11 attacks, the paramilitary groups stepped up their decommissioning.[7]
In June 2009, both the UVF and Red Hand Commando announced that they had completed a process of decommissioning. The UDA confirmed it has started a process that would lead to the destruction of all its arms.[8]

Canada began encouraging small groups, of at least five Canadian citizens or residents, to sponsor refugees back in 1979 to help bring in additional Vietnamese. Since then, volunteers in Canada have helped resettle more than 225,000 refugees from across the globe, according to the Canadian Council for Refugees.

Canada is the only country that has the private sponsorship of refugees mandated into its immigration law. In 1986, the “People of Canada” were awarded the Nansen Refugee Award, presented annually by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to an individual, group, or organization in recognition of outstanding service.


quite a few of these groups have formed in our neighbourhood

President Obama is simply trying to divert attention away from the fact that if he wasn't so feckless, there wouldn't be a refugee problem.

Gosh, why didn't we realize that there were no refugees in the world when anyone else was President? In fact the word refugee is a recent addition to the English language only occurring in the last 7 years. Drunk

Sorry if some people think it's unreasonable to doubt the ability of a government that is responsible for one eff-up after another to screen immigrants. Knee-jerk liberal responses should never be a consideration of governors who's have the responsibility of protecting their citizens.

There is a big split between Governors and Washington because Governors need programs that work not rhetoric or political games. You would think that with the rise of Trump/Sanders/Carson that the Washington elite would be starting to realize that they are on a very high cliff and that a lot of Americans want to push them off, but no, they dont seem to be that bright.

Bill why dont we talk some of the city gangs into keeping an eye on the Syrian refugees. It would give them something to do and might cut down on the drive by shootings that some of the harmless gangs engage in.

Madeleine Albright, Who Came To America As A Refugee, Slams Proposal To Ban Syrians

After recalling her own childhood fleeing Czechoslovakia, former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told reporters Wednesday that she was appalled at political calls to ban Syrian refugees from the United States in the wake of recent terror attacks in Paris.

“These proposals are deeply disturbing to me on many levels,” she said, expanding on a four-paragraph essay she wrote for Time earlier this week. “I cannot and do not pretend to liken my situation to Syria … But I do know what it’s like to leave your home and travel halfway around the world seeking refuge.”

Albright, the first female secretary of state who served in the Bill Clinton administration, immigrated to the United States in 1948 when she was 11 years old. She and her family had been forced to flee Czechoslovakia twice — once, when Nazis invaded during World War II, and again during the Communist takeover. Her father was a diplomat, and because of that her family was eventually able to secure refugee status in the United States.

While she said she could not imagine what it was like to be a Syrian fleeing during a prolonged period of deadly terrorism, she said the American political discussion of rejecting refugees “is just plain wrong and sends the wrong message.” This week, Politicians across the political spectrum have called for halting the Syrian refugee program, fearing that terrorists could pose as refugees in order to sneak into America and commit more crimes.

Albright said the political focus on refugees was misplaced — one, because none of the terrorists in Paris have been identified as either Syrian or refugee, and two, because it distracts from other potential solutions to the violence and unrest in Syria.

“[Politicians] are right to focus on how to defeat terrorists,” she said. “But that focus risks being overtaken by the divisive and counterproductive debate on refugees. … [which runs] contrary to American values, and would do nothing to strengthen our security.”

“[Politicians] are right to focus on how to defeat terrorists,” she said. “But that focus risks being overtaken by the divisive and counterproductive debate on refugees. … [which runs] contrary to American values, and would do nothing to strengthen our security.”

Albright’s comments came about a week after she celebrated her 67th anniversary of arriving in America as a refugee. She expressed gratitude for her family’s acceptance last week on Twitter:

@Baldimo,
Terrorists don't mind who they bed down with.

Quote:
In the 1960s the Provisional IRA was badly armed, relying on old weapons, some dating back to World War II.

Muammar Gaddafi, who took over Libya in a 1969 coup, saw the IRA as a comrade-in-arms fighting British imperialism and he was partly responsible for providing it with more modern weaponry.

The first proven connection with Libya was discovered in 1973 when the Irish Navy boarded a ship called the Claudia, off the Irish coast.

They found five tonnes of weaponry supplied by Libya.

Links between Gaddafi and the IRA re-emerged in 1986 after Gaddafi's adopted daughter was killed along with more than 100 other people by US bombing raids launched from UK bases.

The Libyan leader has said he resumed contact with the IRA in the aftermath of those air raids.

A year later, French authorities stopped a ship, the Eksund, which was on its way to Northern Ireland carrying around 1,000 AK-47 machine guns, more than 50 ground-to-air missiles and two tonnes of Semtex.

It is believed that other shipments of arms reached Ireland before the Eskund was apprehended.

In 2003, the BBC's Mark Devenport spoke to an intelligence source who said there was no question that Libyan arms had greatly enhanced the IRA's deadliness.

'Essential partner'

Attacks carried out with Libyan Semtex included the Enniskillen bomb in 1987, the Ballygawley bus bombing in 1988 and about 250 other booby-trap bombings.

Gaddafi's involvement in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie finally led to his being ostracised and sanctions being imposed by the United Nations.

The IRA helped train an entire generation of Islamist bomb makers, who blew up plenty of Americans.

And this is supposed to mean what? That Obama isn't at all responsible for the Syrian refugee situation?
