This is a step in the direction to help the influx of refugee’s fleeing their countries due to their lands be destroyed by war & terrorism – However as with a disease the cause is not being tackled. If David Cameron believes that ISIS & Assad are part of the cause of this crisis, which is what he stated in yesterday’s statement then he is just going to compound this crisis further with more damage to foreign civilsation. ISIS is a problem, no one can deny this however they themselves are a symptom also, they are a symptom generated by the UK and its allies foreign policies over the last several decades.
Intervention into how Countries such as Syria operate have to stop, our Governments clearly do not intervene for the benefit of the people, if they do then they are exceptionally bad at intervening. History clearly shows us that any intervention we take NEVER ends with a stabilised and safer land for the people of the lands in question.
Iraq is a prime example of this. Saddam Hussein was deemed a tyrant, which in many respects he was however the West’s intervention has done nothing but damage to Iraq and its people.
Expect intervention from Westernised Government’s and possibly Russia against Syria, then expect thousands more refugees, lives lost and a stronger ISIS.
Do we think maybe its time for a different approach?
The UK will take in “thousands” more refugees from Syrian border camps in response to the worsening humanitarian crisis, David Cameron says.Britain would act with its “head and heart”, he said, as he pledged to find long-term solutions to the crisis.
The prime minister has previously said accepting more people was not the simple answer to the situation.
Speaking in Lisbon after talks with his Portuguese counterpart, Mr Cameron said the UK had a “moral responsibility” to help those displaced by the four-year conflict in Syria, adding that more details would be set out next week following discussions with organisations working in the region.
- Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has written to Mr Cameron calling for the UK to accept more refugees
- Former Labour Home Secretary David Blunkett said the UK should take in 25,000 over the next six months while Bristol’s mayor urged residents of the city to use their spare rooms to help
- A petition calling on the UK to accept more refugees has got more than three times the 100,000 signatures needed for it to be eligible for a possible debate in Parliament
