    we can perforce afford what we have no power to stop.

    My "we" is an European one. The thing that really makes this hard to bear is the matter of the refugees. By the hundreds of thousands, people will flee, and where will they go: to us. They did already that from Syria. And that would be fine so far, we could deal with that, but they bring their conflict with them. Already now, our countries serve as supply and hinterlands for the syrian war, and the factions that are fighting each other there, will also fight each other here. An unmitigated evil this is. I dont know what can be done. This can mean a hundred more Atocha´s.
