Forums - Politics Discussion - Dalai lama says "Refugees should go home to develop their own countries"

Yeah, I understand what he means, but he worded it wrong, and from what I remember about those countries developing them is nearly impossible, thanks to scum like Islamic State and Assad's regime.

True.

And it would certainly help if a certain "superpower" would mind to ease a little on the bombings. One would almost believe that this "superpower" intended to cripple Europe and the countries of the refugees.




I mean, what he's saying isn't wrong, but that still makes him a massive hypocrite considering he fled Tibet as a refugee rather than attempted to "develop" there.

He would instantly get arrested by the Chinese government if he returned to Tibet.



I would never tell a refugee to return. What they fled is horrifying, and even if the Islamic State is completely crushed soon, another terror organization will rise in it's ashes. If you kill one extremist another rises to takes his/her place. One can't rebuild or develop a country or a part of the world overrun with that kind of mentality, and pressuring those to return who have seen their entire lives destroyed based on some principle of developing their homelands seems rather strange to me.

And a lot of the middle eastern refugees would get shot or blown up if they returned to their countries, so it's definitely comparable.



I don't see why Europe should be obligated in accepting "refugees" The west aren't the only developed nations on this planet.

Since such arguments and theories are about the USA and Russia alike, you have to be more specific.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Europe was overrun by that kind of mentality 400 year ago. Now it isn't.
