Don't do it America. Most are men, hardly any women or children (not that I'm saying men are expendable) but they don't seem to be 'fleeing to safety'. Especially when they have trashed the places been given to them already in EU, have complete lack of respect or civility (but what do you expect from a culture that will never evolve).

Is US obligated as a developed nation to accept refugees of lesser nations?


I'd hope not. I'd rather we have some room to play with and asset whether or not it's a good idea at the time.


The UN is an international power meddling in international affairs with the US making a bulk of the military forces.Perhaps due to the nature of the UN we accept the responsibility of caring for lesser nations to work towards a better future. If North Korea falls, who'll help the refugees? Is it ethical to close off the borders knowing millions will die in the wake of such a tragedy? I think most of us agree that the US is obligated to help the members of its own nation in different ways, but how about humanity as a whole? Aren't we all human? Yet how are we obligated to help people with little relation to us?


Is this a soliloquy or are you actually asking for my answer?

Don't look into your neighbor's bowl, except to make sure they have enough.

I also agree with Coolfire. We should be taking care of our veterans, former and current military members and their families first before we think about letting in any refugees.

So helping one group makes it impossible to help any other group?

You missed the point of the post. We should be helping our servicemen and women before we offer to take on more financial responsibilities in the form of 10K+ refugees.

Well considering I don't really care to think about the future of humanity, ethics, and high scale political issues since it's not really in my nature and doesn't peak my interests and falls way out of my domain of expertise I can say I'm probably not gonna answer those questions for you. Hopefully someone else will cause there good questions that people should at the very least contemplate, I'm just not the person to answer them.

As mentioned earlier in this thread, when you can show me the part on the statue where it says we should let in those who want to kill us and destroy our way of life because we believe in a different God, I'll consider letting them in.

There are other ways we can handle things like that...

You are not in a position to help others if you are suffering yourself. Offering aid is one thing but over extending your resources exspecalliy if you do not have too. We need to fix the home first before we move people in.
