“The Western leaders and media stay silent about the military intervention and regime change, interventions that have torn the refugees’ homelands apart and resulted in civil war, state collapse and extremely violent conditions lasting for long periods.” James Paul, September 16, 2015.
We are surely glad to see some of these helpless and suffering refugees get settled in Canada and in other countries. Millions more are in camps around the world. These unfortunate people are the victims (still alive) of the endless bombings perpetrated by some of the “humanitarian” countries now “helping” them. Libya is one country that was bombed by NATO and its “allies,” including Canada and helped out “al-Qaeda.” Libya is now in chaos and a civil war rages there.
“Some officers in the Canadian Forces tried to raise concerns early on in the war that removing Gadhafi would play into the hands of Islamic extremists, but military sources say those warnings went unheeded. Later, military members would privately joke about Canada’s CF-18s being part of ‘al-Qaida’s air force,’ since their bombing runs helped to pave the way for rebel groups aligned with the terrorist group....” David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen, March1, 2015.
“Elements of al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups were known to be key players in the NATO-backed uprising in Libya from the beginning, but now it appears that prominent Jihadists and terrorists are practically leading the revolution with Western support.”
Now “Western support” is “helping” the refugees that it created in the first place. And here in Canada the government and opposition at the time, and some of them still in politics today, voted to bomb Libya in an “illegal war.” Does it get more hypocritical than that?
“While the US Congress questions the legitimacy of the war on Libya, the Canadian parliament with one dissenting voice, votes in favor of extending Canada’s participation in an illegal and criminal military undertaking:” Prof Michael Chossudovsky, June 16, 2011.
Another writer and broadcaster had this to say:
“Stephen Lendman designated the crimes committed by NATO against Libya as amounting to ‘a Nuremberg Level.’ “He added: ‘The US-led NATO war on Libya will be remembered as one of history’s greatest crimes, violating the letter and spirit of international law and America’s Constitution.’” Article By Dr. Ludwig Watzal

Now the “humanitarians” are bombing in Iraq and Syria along with their treacherous “allies.” So one could argue they are helping to create more refugees in Iraq and Syria.
“The civil war in Syria has turned the country into a refugee-maker....
But it’s not just Syria that’s sending refugees. Many more come from Iraq and Afghanistan, two other countries shattered by bungled Western military interventions....Then there are the refugees from Libya. A country the media and political establishment would rather forget because it represents another disastrous military decision.... when NATO helped a coalition of ambitious rebels overthrow the Gaddafi government, the refugee floodgates opened.” Casey Research, October 8, 2015.
One could go on and on showing the treachery, and the raging hypocrisy of the rulers past and present who are responsible for the dislocation of millions of people today. Their countries, cities and homes destroyed by this ongoing madness of militarism and the missile maniacs in positions of power. They destroy countries in order to “save” them, and create more enemies while doing so. I believe some of these “leaders” are a curse on society. And no welcoming of these unfortunate refugees by those governments who participated in bombing these countries who never invaded us, can camouflage the fact that some of YOU caused these hellish tragedies in the first place by voting for illegal wars. Bloody dangerous hypocrites are YOU:
You bombed our countries and reduced them to rubble
You well dressed war criminals, created all this trouble
You killed our children with hellfire missiles
You called this “bringing democracy,” and then you smiled
You caused us to flee from the bloody wars you created
You are damned hypocrites, and now you are feted
You made massive profits from death and destruction
You made whole communities unable to function...
