Mulcair Dismisses the Idea that Military Action in Syria and Iraq Will Solve the Refugee Crisis

Do you know what it might do? Stop making more refugees:

Mulcair dismissed military action, specifically Canada’s current bombing campaign in Syria and Iraq, as a solution to the flood of refugees that is overwhelming Europe and galvanizing worldwide public attention. …

“When I hear the answers from the prime minister, saying, ‘Well, more war is the solution,’ well, no amount of military action would have saved that child on that (Turkish) beach,” Mulcair said of Alan Kurdi, whose tiny body was photographed washed up in the surf after a failed attempt by his family to flee Turkey for Greece.

“Let’s start acting to save lives immediately. Canada’s done it in the past and we can do it again.”

Never let a dead child go to waste, eh?

A crass joke?

No more crass than exploiting an obviously dubious story with a tragic ending just to take a dig at Harper.

There would be no refugees if the West got off of its duff and liquidated the child-raping artefact-destroyers known as ISIS.

Furthermore, I don’t recall the recently vocal being as upset at the prospect of native Christian and Yazidi population being eliminated.

  • Islam, Islam, Islam is the problem.

    Without Islam there would not be ISIS, or a refugee problem.

    Deal with Islam. It has been expanding for 1,400 years. And the expansion will not stop without dealing with the ideology driving its expansion.

    Drop cartoons – lots of them. They will never know what hit them.

    This story about the aunt in Vancouver is starting to smell if you ask me. He started using Kurdi when he got to Turkey where he was living and working for three years, she uses Kurdi on her facebook page but the family name is actually Sheni. She applied for a visa for a brother called Mohammed but it was turned down because it was incomplete and he was working somewhere. The wife was a cousin. The sister sent them the money to pay for the dinghy yet she’s blaming Canada? I don’t know, more is going to come out here.

    Mulcair is the most sleazy, OPPORTUNISTIC, scumbag politician imaginable. He is an embarrassment to France.

      I don’t know, it seems to me France finds these qualities to be admirable in their leaders.
