The Refugee Crisis

If indeed, we are guilty of orchestrating this mass catastrophe,

then as a consequence we are morally responsible for changing it for the better.

The ‘migrant issue’, better described as the ‘refugee problem’, has reached critical mass. Millions upon millions estranged, stranded, urgently requiring food, shelter, clothing and medical attention. Decisive action therefore; but what strategies to employ? To work for their integration, or to use our wealth, ingenuity and resources to rebuild and make safe their countries of origin, in so doing and for a start, to attract away the rising issues of mass-integration, of these countless who, during which, absolutely cannot be just dismissed. Is it an undeniable fact that we played the major role in the creation of the conditions from which they fled and the desire to flee? Can it be reversed? It would take a coordinated effort from all interlocutors and this factor brings with it an amalgam of worn out, new rivalries emanating from those, arguably the greater culprits in the creation of this catastrophe-  those who know what they are doing and as a consequence of typically urge super power confrontation.

“If it was not for the aid agencies and food convoys this would constitute a human condition the likes of which we have not seen.”

(C-I)

“No one can sensibly be expected to remain in a death zone, where bloodied and rotting bodies of men women and children litter the streets, around and within completely decimated buildings, and where lives full understanding of who is approaching on the horizon, those who will, if not already there, bring them only complete subordination, indignity through mass-murder, rape and torture.”

(C-I)

“It is a human problem, and those doing their best to deal with it have to be very highly commended, but unfortunately it brings into sway the human condition, the wider part of which while at play, is not constructive – in its self-serving power play is not useful, but rather, the extreme opposite, even given these most dire of circumstances.”

(C-I) I’ll start the debate with a few points, hold on I wrote them down :

There are hundreds of thousands of displaced children, what are we supposed to do? We cannot, as a first world  community, discard our responsibility. But what associated issues are brought with the migrating of millions of people into the EU? What of UK national security? What of cultural homogeneity, can it exist and if so how long will it take and via what social strategies?

What of the causes of the crisis, very specifically should the most culpable of all be forced to properly deal with the effect, i.e., what is the worst humanitarian, economic and political disaster since WWII?

Are we appealing to decision makers who do not understand at all the people they wage war against, let alone the future circumstances that were outlined by others at the outset? Do they, in what is a demonstrable power hungry mania understand the nature of the people of the world at all? One has to ask.

Has modern civilisation proven itself to be completely inept? What resides at the core of this ineptitude? If not so, who are the ones working for resolution and how is this resolution being carried out? To what end result envisaged?

If empirically, the comparison is made with ‘what has been gained via waging war campaigns in the Middle East’  and ‘the associated argument so to do’, what does the comparison actually tell us?

What is there about the stance being adopted among many in the EU and the US, that the suffering of others is not a concern now because ‘certain arguments’ serve to overshadow, i.e,. disguise what is a plight undeniably no less than a morally despicable forced circumstance?

(C-III) O, you’ve done much asking, but implicit is a lot of answering too. We have to examine your questions.

(C-I) Go ahead.

(C-V) Well, I agree with your first question/answer – that we can’t just sit back and pretend the plight of thousands of kids does not exist. It does exist and we made it exist, I think you’ve said that somewhere.

(C-I) Who do you mean ‘we’?

(C-III) She’s asking who was the major interlocutor? Across the region.

(C-I) ************************************************* deleted

(C-III) If you want to put it like that.

(C-I) I do.

(C-V) O. Here is something from Kofi Annan, written yesterday (28/01/2016):

Kofi Annan

“I am worried by the new refugee law before the Danish Parliament today. It is in sharp contrast with Denmark’s humanitarian and social traditions, and highlights a worrying trend in European politics: An issue that should have helped Europe to rally together in solidarity to forge a common approach is regretfully having the opposite effect.
The threat to confiscate migrants’ valuables and to delay to three years the waiting period before they can be reunited with their families is not in the spirit of the European Convention on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the UN Refugee Convention, all of which Denmark is a party to.
The failure of the European Union to agree to a common migration policy is leading to a race to the bottom by member states. Attempting to push problems to one’s neighbors is not a sustainable strategy. If the law before Parliament today in Denmark is passed, I fear to think what the next national response will be.
While European states have to address the legitimate concerns of their citizens regarding the historic influx of migrants since last year, they cannot do so at the expense of their values, ideals and international law. By doing so, they offer violent movements a victory they could never have won on their own.
I encourage the member states of the European Union to focus on forging the common migration policy the continent urgently needs.”
Kofi Annan
