Immigrants: The other consequence of pulling out of Iraq

(My new American Thinker post)


As we debate "anchor babies" and the US-Mexico border, Europeans are dealing with their own immigration problem.    

They are coming from places familiar to us, as reported in The New York Times:    
Roiling everything in its path, a wave of tens of thousands of migrants and refugees — many fleeing wars in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan — has worked its way up the length of the Balkans in recent days.    Like a movable feast of despair, the mass of people has overwhelmed the authorities in one stop after another, from the tiny Greek island of Kos to impoverished Macedonia, which declared a state of emergency last week, and now the train and bus stations of Serbia, as they head north to their ultimate destinations in the richer nations of the European Union.    The next link on their route, almost inevitably, are towns like this one on the Hungarian frontier with Serbia. But Hungarian officials say they have a firm, if unwelcoming, answer to the slow-motion tide: a fence.
These are war refugees, or people who can no longer live peacefully in their homelands.     The numbers are staggering, or 46,000!   I doubt that a fence is going to keep them out.   They will go to another country.

Why are they looking for peace?   The answer is complicated but two things are certain:  

1) ISIS is overwhelming city after city; and,

2) We walked out in 2011 to satisfy a silly campaign promise about ending wars.      

What war did we end?   What peace did we create?

We left a vacuum and thousands of people can no longer live in their homes of centuries.   

Another tragic consequence of a failed foreign policy!
