    If I had the answer to that I'd probably be given a knighthood and a position in the Cabinet It'd be pretty lengthy, to give my entire views on the issues surrounding the middle east, but in brief I think we've got to prioritise. The first priority should be weeding out those who are economic migrants rather than refugees. So I think we should issue papers (naturally forge-proof like our banknotes are) to those who appear on europe's borders as legitimate refugees giving them the right to stay as asylum seekers. Anyone who is found in europe without these papers would be deported, in a bid to deter people from being smuggled into the EU. Similarly, anyone already in Europe who couldn't prove there legitimacy as an asylum seeker would be deported. I'd also give the secret services - on a temporary basis - much broader powers to undergo surveillance operations without warrants. Further, I'd temporarily bring back border controls on every European country to give further knowledge of who is where in Europe.

    Then the next step would be to commit serious resources to building proper refugee shelters in countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Jordan, Lebanon and the like. And given the privileges these countries enjoy from the West, I'd make our aid conditional on their accepting refugees. I'd also commit boots on the ground to deal with IS. As much as there is little appetite for another ground offensive in the middle east, the fact is leaving IS functioning seems to me to be an ever greater threat. I think that sooner or later, NATO forces will be required on the ground.

    There are huge difficulties facing all of this, but that's just my two cents on what I think the optimal way of dealing with this situation is. Of course, people far more qualified than myself are sweating over these issues, so the above should be taken with plenty of salt.


    I think I agree with what you're saying and I see what you mean about the fallacy I committed but hey ho the thread is now dead everyone must have found somewhere else to call the left loonies and the right racists. No loss there I suppose? Now I really should get on with that essay...

    This thread has died.
    It's been murdered more like. Drowned like an infant in a bathtub.

    That's what happens when you steer a discussion to the point where you ultimately declare that you believe in the abolishment of the law or politics and where you start drawing WWII defeated Nazi analogies with a few protestors in Belgium.

    Together with your hysterical accusations that everybody who doesn't see eye to eye with you is a Nazi sympathizer you took the discussion from the sublime to the ridiculous in no time at all.

    Congratulations, thread murderer!

    You seemed quite happy at the time and stood by while the thread died.

    Its a fact they're nazis. Oops I mean so you think their views on immigration are petty? Tell me what you think is petty about immigration? Do you think the far rights views on immigration should be endorsed?
    Maybe you should R.E.A.D the post I originally responded to for C.O.N.T.E.X.T or do you make it a business of lambasting people who agree with you over misunderstandings? **** off.

    what do you mean multiculturalism = genocide? You choose not to marry a non white person, you marry a white person,n you have white children, the white race continues, where in that equation is the genocide?

    "Most of the protests were peaceful but white-helmeted riot police used the water cannon against a group of protesters, many of whom local media described as right-wing nationalists, who burst onto the square chanting and carrying banners denouncing Islamic State."

    Any comment?
    Your ilk have brought this on us. Thanks to your wishy washy, myopic liberal insanity we're now stuck between Islamic + left-wing vs. right-wing nutters. I've been warning this would happen for years, and sadly it's playing out as predicted. Next phase: civil liberties to be curtailed :facepalm2:
