Quote:thats why i think a blanket policy like age and gender is the only answer.
Quote:I disagree, but do not know enough about refugee policy to comment.
I appreciate your honest candor.
Quote:Yes, men do run from war but should they? If your country was being attacked, would you run away?
Quote:Yes and I would. Particularly if it was ruled by somebody killing his own people and fighting was never ending. What point would it have to keep fighting and killing with no end in sight?
Quote:Not all men are warriors. It is better to try and make peace than perpetuate the war.
I don't really think running away is the answer. It's hard to make peace from far away.
But fair enough. I actually think my approach is more humanitarian. If word got round that the EU was taking in just women and children, then people would be more, not less, likely to send their families out of danger, rather than interviewing everyone to decide who is legit. My way, more women and children saved. In theory of course.
Heck no. Much easier to make peace outside of a warzone.
