    NYT: A father comforted his son inside a refugee transit center in Opatovac, Croatia. At this center, refugees were held behind high dirt berms in different quadrants of the camp, until police officers in full riot gear marched them out to buses.

    Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air-conditioned tents sitting empty, still won’t take Syrian refugees.

    As Saudi Arabia faces mounting criticism for refusing to take in any of the millions of Syrians fleeing conflict in their homeland, it was revealed this weekend that the country has over 100,000 empty, air-conditioned tents that could house up to 3 million refugees.

    The tents, located roughly 2,150 miles from Syria in the city of Mina, are only used a few days a year to house pilgrims on their way to Mecca for the hajj, the news station TeleSUR reported.

    Yes they do, so why is all the pressure on the U.S. to bring these refugees 10,000 miles when Saudi Arabia is only 2,000 miles from Syria.Let someone else help for a change-not our responsibility, we have far too many problems without taking on yet another one! I for 1 am tired of my tax dollars being constantly raised by those in command for their screwed up agendas!!

    Saudi Arabia is a country of Wahabi Sunni Muslims. Syrians are predominately Sunni but not Wahabi. Muslims can't get along among themselves much less any other religious or non religious people.

    Wahabis observe a very strict, severe form of Islam. I doubt there would be any desire on "moderate" Muslims' part to go to Saudi Arabia and live under such a repressive regime otherwise they would have been flocking to the Arabian Peninsula.

    All I see are images of abled-bodied men who should be fighting for their country instead of fleeing. The US should make it a requirement that every draft age refugee we take in should be conscripted for military training in the US armed services and sent back to fight for the liberation of Syria.

    Those who are too young will be required to register for the draft and will be drafted into military service upon reaching the age of 18.

    I wonder how many would be clamoring to come here under those requirements?

    Obama already made that mistake by training and arming Daesh. We just need to get the hell out of there . It's their problem, they need to deal with it. And yes immigration is handing the country over to Daesh

    ^ Well that is not going to happen, so we might as well make them pay for their asylum. If Americans are dying they should make the sacrifice also. No service; no asylum.

    My intent is for them to serve in the US armed services under US commanders. If they go AWOL, their entire family (women, children, the elderly) is shipped back to Syria.

    Uncoverman: Service would be a great idea. I wonder how many would reconsider coming to this country? I am certain that it would be a huge percentage.
