(Note: I started a separate thread because I didn't want to dredge up old ugliness, plus I couldn't remember if that thread had to be locked. If this needs to be merged, feel free.) Various news sources are reporting that Europe has passed a milestone: more than one million refugees entering in 2015. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35158769 How do countries meet the needs of this population without adversely affecting other populations? Has anyone read any material with workable solutions? The infrastructure and logistical issues make my head spin, but the human element makes my heart ache. I'm wondering where others are in their thinking? (At the risk of being pedantic: I'm interested in a discussion with facts and demonstrable information, along with well-developed personal opinions. I have no interest in screeds or rants and would hope people would respect each other and humanity enough to think before posting.)
Turkey Shoots Down Russian Warplane Near Syrian Border Turkey shot down a Russian warplane because they claim the Russian plane entered their airspace. Russia denies this allegation. It seems that if it did happen, it was very brief and the plane landed in Syria. Turkey is Part of NATO, so this complicates things for sure. Putin is obviously angry. Thoughts?
