Germany took a million and they have had 3 terror attacks and nearly 1000 sexual assaults in colgne since then.It would be stupid to do the same thing they did.
When did I say that we should do a Germany and take 1 million people in a year?

I believe it is the combination of

a) desensitisation due to being overloaded by media all these years of all sorts of atrocities.
b) the realisation that we can't really do anything to change it.

Yes I could join some rallies and what not to show my disgust at what is going on in the world, but if I truly believe it won't do anything, am I not only doing it for show?

I don't think that you should ignore the issue - but when I find out what I can do to actually help, im sure I'll act upon it.

Not at all. I just don't think 20,000 refugees is enough.

This is my opinion:

I agree with mkap
I know that we can't do anything for them but where's the sympathy?
If that happened to Europe or any place that affected you, wouldn't you show sympathy?It's saddening to see all these people saying"Why should we?"
But if that happened to a place that affected you wouldn't you show sympathy?This is children-innocent children- getting killed. At-least show some sympathy towards them.

Note to haters: hate all you want,tbh idc

No. It started long before that when the people chose the Assads, then chose to keep them.
People chose the Assads and wanted to keep them?!
Wow, had no idea the tyrants of the middle east were giving people so much freedom and choice.
Choice being accept our rule or die?!

And what makes them different to the probably half a billion other people facing similar problems in the world.

Haven't 4 million died in the Central African Republic for example?

True, but isn't much we can do about that. Lebanon, Jordan and the like have taken something like 4 million refugees over the past 2 years. Puts us to shame
*looks at map*

Ah, the places next door have taken lots more than the country literally the other side of the next continent

Nah sympathy with no action is just false ********.

We all know horrible things go on in the world and do nothing about it

seriously i look at the news and it just depresses me and upsets me. Syria has been bombed now for the past couple of years and all we see is civilian deaths one after another and once in a blue moon we hear that an ISIS member has been killed.

is it really worth it i mean why are the russians so dumb bombing the few hospitals that are left (are they really that backwards at dropping missiles) and bombing houses leaving people with no food and water. it just makes me so angry seeing little children left without families and becoming orphans.

as a society we arnt doing much to help, we are closing our doors to them and saying they dont belong with us. we just close our eyes and just carry on with out individualist lives when these are out brothers and sisters

just look at these videos, do these people really deserve this? they might be a bit graphic

statistics: total death count in Syria:
450,000 - Children: 50,000 thats like the whole of Liverpool being wiped out
People do care. Civilians always get caught up in wars

Assad's father Hafez came to power in a coup. Bashar took over when he died in 2000. At what point did people "choose" the Assads?

That is obvious, well done.

The point is that the majority of people don't really care until it affects themselves and their loved ones.

These sort of things don't affect us as our ancestors fought for our freedoms and rights.

Something theirs should have done

So why then did we invade Iraq, liberate the Falklands, intervene is Bosnia, Korea, Lybia? Why do we accept the arbitrary spending of over £11bn on foreign aid? Or the accepting of but a single refugee?

You just want to argue pointlessly, don't you?
