The Real Refugee Problem – and How To Solve It - Ron Paul

Written by Jahn J Kassl 
Translated by Franz

„End the Empire!“

Demands Ron Paul in his latest article and thereby means his 
home country, the United States of America. From my viewpoint 
there is nothing to be added, except that our active politicians 
shun exactly that kind of announcement, just like the devil the 
holy water.

Somehow all of them are in the same boat and I have the 
impression that this political cast can only be replaced due
to a great event. Out of themselves these human Beings are
incapable for turning back. Hubris rules and a lack of sensitivity 
for the needs of human Beings also rules. The responsible ones 
at the head of State, economy and religion have lost any sense 
of grounding.
The Europe, which the elite talks about, is entirely different 
from the one, which human Beings experience. And in the 
question of refugees, this becomes more than obvious.

The EU-Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos paid 
a visit on 09/07/2015 to the refugee reception center in 
Traiskirchen and said „He must give praise to Austria for 
having established such a center”, the refugees are treated 
here „in a very humane manner“. 

I myself visited this center and could not recognize the 
„very humane manner“. With actually roughly 4000 human 
Beings, the center is eight to nine times beyond its capacity. 
Nobody is homeless in Traiskirchen, but presently several 
hundred human Beings are still housed in tents. If the EU 
commissioner regards this as “humane”, I recommend to 
him to move there himself. To say nothing about the imposition, 
which such a consideration means for Traiskirchen and the 
inhabitants there (I have reported about it: 
Es sind zu viele:  
There are too many: 
http://lichtweltverlag.blogspot.co.at/2015/08/there-are-too-many-jjk_17.html ). 

In summary: The responsible ones for this crisis, 
with the US empire at the top, are incapable to 
see the misfortune, which they bring to human 
Beings, nor the misfortune, which they thereby 
bring to themselves.

It will be a painful process of awakening, as soon as 
the worldwide empire is put to an end. And this day 
may possibly be closer than most of us believe.

The Real Refugee Problem – 
and How To Solve It
by Ron Paul

Last week Europe saw one of its worst crises in decades. 
Tens of thousands of migrants entered the European Union 
via Hungary, demanding passage to their hoped-for final 
destination, Germany.

While the media focuses on the human tragedy of so many 
people uprooted and traveling in dangerous circumstances, 
there is very little attention given to the events that led them 
to leave their countries. Certainly we all feel for the displaced
people, especially the children, but let’s not forget that this 
is a man-made crisis and it is a government-made crisis.
The reason so many are fleeing places like Syria, Libya, 
Afghanistan, and Iraq is that US and European interventionist 
foreign policy has left these countries destabilized with no 
hopes of economic recovery. 

This mass migration from the Middle East and beyond 
is a direct result of the neocon foreign policy of regime 
change, invasion, and pushing “democracy” at the 
barrel of a gun.

Even when they successfully change the regime, as in Iraq, 
what is left behind is an almost uninhabitable country. 
It reminds me of the saying attributed to a US major in 
the Vietnam War, discussing the bombing of Ben Tre: 
“It became necessary to destroy the town in order to save it.”

The Europeans share a good deal of blame as well. France 
and the UK were enthusiastic supporters of the attack on 
Libya and they were early backers of the “Assad must go” 
policy. Assad may not be a nice guy, but the forces that 
have been unleashed to overthrow him seem to be much 
worse and far more dangerous. No wonder people are so 
desperate to leave Syria.
Most of us have seen the heartbreaking photo of the young 
Syrian boy lying drowned on a Turkish beach. While the 
interventionists are exploiting this tragedy to call for direct 
US attacks on the Syrian government, in fact the little boy 
was from a Kurdish family fleeing ISIS in Kobane. And as 
we know there was no ISIS in either Iraq or Syria before 
the 2003 US invasion of Iraq.

As often happens when there is blowback from bad foreign 
policy, the same people who created the problem think they 
have a right to tell us how to fix it – while never admitting 
their fault in the first place.
Thus we see the disgraced General David Petraeus in the 
news last week offering his solution to the problem in Syria: 
make an alliance with al-Qaeda against ISIS! Petraeus was 
head of the CIA when the US launched its covert regime-
change policy in Syria, and he was in charge of the “surge” 
in Iraq that contributed to the creation of al-Qaeda and ISIS 
in Iraq and Syria. The idea that the US can salvage its disastrous 
Syria policy by making an alliance with al-Qaeda is horrific. 
Does anyone think the refugee problem in Syria will not 
be worse if either al-Qaeda or ISIS takes over the country?

Here is the real solution to the refugee problem: 
stop meddling in the affairs of other countries. 
Embrace the prosperity that comes with a peaceful 
foreign policy, not the poverty that goes with 
running an empire. End the Empire!
