    I believe it is the moral duty of my country, the U.S.A., to take in at least as many Middle East refugees as Germany. We played a significant role in creating the disruption and chaos. I am so disgusted by Christians who flaunt their faith yet support the most non-Christian policies. Unless you are 100% Native American, every U.S. citizen shares DNA with someone who fled their homeland to survive and/or find a better life in the the U.S. from another nation

    suggesting that the united states make amends for something they caused is ludicrous.

    As I suspect you know, the US is nowhere near full. This should not be seen as a European problem. It is a World problem and should be addressed by the UN and not just the EU. There must be room for them elsewhere.

    Maybe some effort should be made to end the war, like by not having Western countries bomb one side or the other, rather than deal with the damage from the war?

    I've never met a Syrian. They should send some to California.

    The USA has a big illegal immigration problem that needs to be taken care of before we even think about transporting a bunch of Muslims across the world so the American people have to take care of them.

    And you call yourself a Christian? I think NOT. If there is a hell after life, I assure you Jesus and God will send you directly to the eternal fires.

    Yes, there is room for them throughout the industrialized Western world. My country, the U.S., continues to make decisions that damage our stature in the world and cause people in other nations to hate us. You reap what you sow and the U.S. is going to reap hatred upon itself.

    We need to do both simultaneously.

    You are not a Christian. In fact, I would argue that it is people like you who create the terrorist problems we face because you are selfish and nasty.

    It isn't about room, not physical space. It is about paying for them, as the refugees are instant welfare recipients. How about housing, medical care,

    A nation 30Trillion in debt can ill afford any more budget busters.

    http://www.ibtimes.com/us-airstrikes-syria-against-isis-may-cost-much-10-billion-1694475

    If anything underlines how high that cost will be, it’s the combat debut of the F-22 Raptor, which costs $68,000 per hour to operate. That does not include the price of its vast array of weapons, such as Sidewinder missiles and small-diameter bombs, coming in at $600,000 and $250,000 each, respectively.

    While the White House has refused to comment to how much the operation might cost, early indications suggest that it will go far beyond the $7.5 million per day being spent on strikes against ISIS in Iraq.
    It's all about priorities. How many refugees does it take to pay for a sidewinder?

    If the USA ran a budget surplus that would suck the life out of your economy and impoverish a huge swathe of your middle and working class. You are working hard enough in that direction already. The evidence of migration is that migrants bring with them diverse skills and contribute more than their share to the economic and cultural life of the nations that accept them. Again, if the USA sent home all its illegal migrants from Latin America the economic damage would be far in excess of any possible benefit.
