    It’s a pity the article doesn’t focus more on the US and NATO policies in the Middle East and Afghanistan that are driving the refugee crisis.

    The Syrian crisis is heartbreaking. How can we absorb the entirety of a nation? Really, any of us? We can all take a few and try to help, but the problem is the decline of a country, a people.They are forming a new diaspora. And I see no viable solutions around the corner. Simply heartbreaking.
