    That’s just silly..

    Are you “more like” Ireland? Are you more like Italy? More like Poland? More like sub-Saharan Africa?

    As with my country, yours has been largely formed by immigrants from all over the world. And yes, they bring “part of what they left behind”....so what?

    i know people who say that.

    I dont. See, im a big fan of "nuance". I think its hyperbolic and impossible to suggest an entire functioning country can be a shole

    It's the government that causes a country to be a shole, but it's the people who live there that allowed it to happen.

    Some of the people are good folks, they know they made a mistake but they're are sticking around trying to remedy the problem. Then there are others who helped create that mess that are running away, hiding and doing nothing to remedy the situation.

    I'm curious as to why a leader would want those who can't handle adversity to come into their country and help create another mess, doesn't make sense.

    And there are some that have essentially been pillaged by first world countries of their labour and resources; pitted on against another.

    Wow!

    Now we blame all of a country for the desolation caused by a dictator.

    Blame the poor, the weak, the sick and the imprisoned!

    Those are usually the ones who fight to be free if they have the courage, the fat cats that suck up to the dictator don't.

    He dropped an S bomb. You know it, Lindsey Graham knows it, I know it and I think most of his supporters know it.
    The US had thousands of US military personnel in Africa. Local support is vital. How stupid can it be to insult our partners?

    What do you have to offer as evidence this is the case?
