The Syrian Refugee Crisis Is a Result of the USA's Foreign Policy. The devastation seen in this image was caused by America. If the US, it's British lap dog and the French hadn't bombed Syria, there wouldn't be a Refugee Crisis. Conservatives are screaming because Obama says he'll take in 10K refugees. Meanwhile, Germany will take 800K refugees. The US's 10K is shameful on so many levels considering the wealthy of this country and the fact the this country is responsible for the devastation.
