1.  That had nothing to do with my question relating to safe zones, which is an interesting idea to me, but I am really not sure how it would work in a war zone, and given the situation over there.  

2.

Conservatives are arrogant, and also stupid.  They are unable to employ critical thinking and so embrace any fake news that seems to agree with them.  And they are also remarkably prone to generalizing, tossing insults and name-calling for no reason.

Next time you respond to me, please remember that I'm not a "Liberal", I'm an individual.  Thank you.

 

Ahh, but Liberals are intolerant and cry and destroy and name-call when they lose. They love democracy until things don't go their way. You fail to seek the truth and instead accept the pablum fed to you by your CBC. Maybe downgrade the size of your spoon.

Agreed...intolerance is the working currency for liberals when it serves their purposes.   "This is what democracy looks likes" only counts when liberals win.

First of all it is not a Muslim ban. It is a CITIZEN ban. It is based on the color of their passports not any religion they believe in. 

 

 

Why wouldn't you call it as it is?  Temporary ban on Muslims!  That's what he's calling it - he's specifically identifying MUSLIMS in this temporary ban!  The countries named are Muslim-majority countries!

Yes I support Trump's decision not to allow any Muslims in non-Muslim countries and I hope they can achieve it. But I support this decision based on a condition, Muslim countries wont allow any persons from non-Muslim countries too. I dont want any non-Muslim persons in my country and in other Muslim countries.

Many refugees are scared to leave their own country, even despite the danger that war brings. What they really want is for the problems to be solved so they can get back to their lives again. Anyone would prefer to stay home, among their family and friends. In the land they were born. THAT would be the best outcome for everybody.

 
 

Yeah, I agree with this.  That's what we'd all prefer for them too, I'm sure.

.Reader's Digest, his "plan" was to protect and provide further assistance to refugee camps in the border regions, like Jordan, Iraq and Turkey. IIRC, doing this saw a dollar spent go three times as far, in other words, for the cost of bringing one family to the United States, they could support three families in prefab camps over there, providing for all of their needs closer to home.

 

I see.  I think there is a certain sense to that although I'm not sure I'd trust Trump to actually do it.

Thanks to you both for answering my question.

Yep, and nor does it even matter if they do protest. He is the POTUS. His power is practically absolute. Whatever he says WILL be done immediately, and no amount of whining by unwashed leftists is going to change it.

His power is far from absolute, and if he keeps pissing off important members of Congress, especially Republican ones, he'll soon find that out.

I thought that myself, at first, but then as I came to think about it, those countries are, for the most part, riven by civil war and instability, where you can't rely on the government to even know, much less care, who these people are getting onto airplanes to travel abroad, and where it's childishly easy to obtain travel documents, including passports. I understand the Syrian government will simply sell their passport to anyone who wants one, no questions asked. You can at least talk to the government in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan to check someone out, for example. You can't do that in these other countries. Iran, I admit, is considerably more organized and has an excellent security apparatus, but I think the feeling is there that you can't rely on anything they say to be truthful, given they still refer to the US as "the great Satan".

Argus if he had any intelligence he understands a terrorist can come from any country and disguise themselves to be just about anyone from anywhere. So the key is tighter and more efficient screening of ALL people. This arbitrary decision to pick only certain countries is a crock. Its not about vetting, its about saying we won't vet we will just penalize anyone and everyone in certain countries. What is stupid about it is most terrorists in the ME come from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait countries he won't p ut on the list. Its a crock. He could have asked his people to create stricter vetting criteria. He chose not to. This criteria he uses does not change the vetting process currently being used. Its posturing and pandering. Its hot air.

All he has done is facilitate chaos at the borders and turned all MUSLIMS into victims including terrorists. He's fed right into their hands.

The Lord's Resistance Army

The IRA

The KKK

Sons of Odin

Should I find more?

The IRA was never a Christian terrorist group, and narrow focused its attentions on the British military and police, and the members of Protestant militant groups, and it's no longer in operation.. The KKK is already in America and has no international links that I'm aware of, so I don't see why the US would be concerned about them flying in, and the Sons of Odin/Soldiers of Odin is not, as far as I know, a terrorist group. They do sort of vigilante street patrols in Finland because they say Muslims are raping Finnish girls.

So... yeah, you better find more.

Did anyone catch the live Facebook video of three muslims raping a swedish girl?  It didn't get much coverage, but authorities say they even though they know who the perps are, without the actual video, there's not much they can do.

I don't see why he wouldn't, likewise pressure nations within the region to contribute. Trump, IMHO, has a point when he questions why numerous Arab States are doing little to help the refugees.

Well, we all have different levels of trust and nothing I've seen so far suggests Trump is someone to be trusted.

Other then him doing all the stuff he promised ;)

 

Might not be popular or good policy, but he's doing it.

I didn't know, so I looked it up.    That's horrific!!   Makes me sick to my stomach!   I hope those guys pay dearly.   

There seems to be a trend, sadly.   :(

It was horrible enough when men would just video themselves raping girls, and now they've taken it to live streaming.

What can they do if Trump works within the framework of law that enacts his presidential power? Glare at him?

He may have a valid point about some Arab nations not doing enough to help refugees. The problem is, does Trump have the skills to actually convince the leaders of those other countries to help out. Evidence suggests not.

That is such a vague "plan" to set up a safe zone as to be completely useless.

Will America provide the protection or will they get others to provide troops? And if Americans are directly involved, will it require adding forces or diverting resources from the fight against ISIS? And what type of losses of troops are the Americans willing to accept? What if Syria disagrees with having American troops around?

Nobody is claiming that it's not cheaper to have refugees live near their homeland; the problems in doing so are more political and military than financial.
