By refugees they mean "rich elite" who can afford to flee.

Thank you, America.

The damn Americans and Brits should be taking hundreds of thousands. Their brilliant leaders Bush and Blair invaded the country in 2001.

I endorse Canada about their refugee policy. But, not to be racist, how many of these people are radicalized Muslims? Islam is a great and peaceful religion but unfortunately most Muslims live in 3rd world countries and can't even read the Koran and are brainwashed by extremist imams who distort the religion.

Meanwhile in Japan... The few that try get locked up for months (even yers) and treated like a lower species and criminals until denied then deported.

I bet 2000 of them are actual Taliban. Who knows? Nobody can be sure.

Canada has a heart!

Can’t say that about most other countries!

They should be left where they are and do what other people have done throughout history, fight and stand up for freedom.

Now that the racist spankee boy traitor Trump is out of office, the US will. And they should. When South Vietnam fell, many Vietnamese who helped the US forces were granted asylum here and a chance at a better life. One of those was a friend of mine at my last Navy command. And so it should be for the refugees from this 'Vietnam war'.

When I visited Ottawa in 2019, the Immigration du Canada office had asylium seekers camped outside - they were from every ethnicity, race and any color you like. Of course Canada is diverse in itself - I met black African immigrants, there's Canadians of Chinese descent, out in Montreal there are Algerian refugees (Algeria speaks Arabic and French; that nation has experienced an ugly vicious civil war), India subcontinent types and more.

As for other countries, Europe itself has had to deal with refugees fleeing the genocidal crap that ISIL started up in 2014. Not to mention Libya aross the Med pond. Sassymouth Donald blabbed to the European leaders about a 'white continent' and they told him where to put it.

There's a lot of wars, human rights abuses, refugees abound. Things are tough all over.

The Taliban would have taken over Afghanistan 15 yrs ago. The collision forces delayed that, but wasn't able to stop it. Only Afghans can solve their own problems.

It appears more and more like China will be the next country sucked into Afghanistan. The way that China fights terrorism is very different, ruthless, compared to Europe and the US.

The US will take in over 100K refugees. There is a long history of the US taking in people. Can Japan say the same?

I suppose that if they were radicalized, they would have stayed in Afghanistan.

Thats why the Taliban were winning their blitzkrieg in that country, Afghanistan! Everyone one runs away but nobody pick up a rifle to fight! The Afghan government forces wasn't short of guns,ammo or US dollars, it was a corruption within it's core!

I have an advice to win this war: Send all Afghanistan refugee men age above 17 back to that country and fights the Talibman if they want their family now refugee in another country! This is their war, this is their fate, they should not run away!
