    Instead of giving all this $$$ to overseas countries how about looking after Australians first? 6.9% of the Australian workforce is unemployed, how about more money for jobs? What about our f&%ked health system? And our crappy military equipment? Just to name a few :flames:

    I've been hearing a bit about this topic through NPR.
    The US has the same problems to a large extent.

    I really have mixed feelings on the topic - as far as it concerns the USA.
    On 1 hand I feel like you guys do about it.
    On the other, America is supposed to be the "big melting pot" a place for everyone.

    The plaque on the Statue of liberty reads;

    “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost, to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


    I think that is a pretty awesome statement. A corner-stone of American ideals.

    But yes, it does get old. Bunch of foreigners taking up resources that should go to citizens (after all, citizens need things too).
    But how can we claim to still be America - "The land of milk and honey" - without acting upon this basic principle?

    I don't know, like I said, I have very mixed feelings on the topic.

    This country spends a lot of tax dollars, in addition to a lot of private donations to feed people in 3rd world countries.
    Why??
    The climate/ecology there won't allow them to grow enough to feed themselves anyway.
    Wouldn't it serve everyone's best interest to just bring 80% of their population here, and allow their country to try to make progress at a managable population level?

    Yeah right! That's just what we need --- 30 million Ethiopians with a free ride! Like we haven't got enough problems.

    So what are we going to do??
    Why is the clear moral issue always rubbing up against the financial?
    I have no real answers:(

    Perhaps another generation will prove themselves to be wiser, I hope so.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    I think that the stupid turds should stop whining. perhaps you can tow them all down to antartica. ( hmmmm, there's an idea!) as I discovered from my reseach, Austrailia is is almost the same as America in the melting pot matter. Slamo, the Afgans are from Afganistan. stan- land, place. Exmple The land of the Afgans is Afganistan. I think the reason they are being that way is ( read it all before you have a cow!!) because they expected life over there to be different then home. ( Afganistan)

    I whole heartedly agree to sending them back, they seem to take so much for granted.

    We have fed, clothed and given them shelter as well as cared for their sick.

    They expect so much and offer little in return.

    Maybe these people should look at how they would treat us if the situation was put in reverse and then see how much they are asking of our country!!!! :angry con

    I don't want to get into a mas debate about if they should be allowed to stay or not, but, I have a problem with keeping them in concentration camps.....no other country in the western world sees a need for them, and they all have the same problem to some degree.

    You know the problem they have in Britain? No detention centres, once they arrive they disappear into society never to be seen again - and there are plenty of arseholes in the community who harbour these ILLEGAL immigrants :shoot3:

    I second that one. If we dont put them in these camps how will we be able to keep track of their whereabouts?

    The would just disappear into the night, never to be seen again

    If we don't put them in camps how about paying for their airfare back to their home country............probably be cheaper in the long run.........and give them priority on legal immigration through the proper channels:kay:
