Refugee Crisis

The refugee/migrant crisis is unbelievable. And the answer is not the bleeding heart response of welcoming them into all countries.

How will this end?

It seems that Angela Merkel made an incredibly naïve move when she said the door to Germany was open to refugees. Who can handle the masses and the problems that come with them?
The extraordinary aerial photo of a column of refugees and migrants tramping through the fields of Slovenia may come to symbolize the moment the EU began to fall apart. The irony can be lost on no one: it was in order to prevent such scenes happening again in continental Europe that the alliance was forged in the first place in the late 1950's. Yet here we are more than half a century later facing the prospect of thousands - maybe hundreds of thousands - of displaced people freezing and starving in the grasslands of eastern Europe as winter closes in.
