  •  I think it is a fair question.. (0+ / 0-)

    They travel a thousand miles thru Mexico, yet Mexico has no moral obligation to these refugees?

    What about the UN?

    Refugees from Syria are housed in UN erected camps just over the border in Jordan.

    But the UN calls the Latin American refugees a "regional problem" they won't get involved in and put the entire burden on the US.

      did not and has not supported right wing coups in CA.

      Obama did and still does.

      We broke, we bought it…in this case children.

      •  Right.. so let me ask you a question.. (0+ / 0-)

        you think if left-wing socialists had been successful in taking over those countries, everything would be hunky dory?

        Have you seen the strife in Venezuela?

        I think you are fooling yourself that interventions by the US caused all the problems in that region.

        Oh.. and a question.. we broke Iraq as well.  Are we not responsible at all for what is going on there?

          adjective.

          Just as Fascism and Nazism are right-wing. An additional qualifier is unnecessary.

          And, yes, we broke Iraq by invading it with our military. It was obscene, despicable and unconscionable. To believe that evil can be "fixed" by more of the same is pure idiocy.

          •  So.. we can't fix Central America, right? (0+ / 0-)

            We should just butt out.  Ok.. Thanks.  Gotcha!

              along with an end to our endless attempts to make sure they never have leftist governments.

              We can keep those kids here as refugees, care for them, give them food, shelter, health care, etc. They've already been through hell. We shouldn't add to it.

              We can make sure that we push for treaties that help workers, instead of just capital. And we can make sure we push for environmental treaties that greatly reduce pollution across the globe.

              There are a thousand things we can do to help. Using military force doesn't help them at all. It just makes matters infinitely worse, as we keep demonstrating.
