There was a time when the US faced the same sort of situation it does with refuge Syrians. It was World War 2 and America acted too late then.
Japanese citizens had immigrated to America congregating in Hawaii and California. Of those emigrants were a handful of spies, spies that provided Japan and it’s navy with intelligence and targeting information about Pearl Harbor.
The majority of the Japanese immigrants were innocent. They were hardworking and just desiring a better life, a life free of the tyranny they left behind. And when they were sent to internment camps, they went willingly thought confused and angry because what had they done? But they were easy to identify, unlike German immigrants, and mix in with them had been a handful that created “the day that will live in infamy”.
Some of the interned Japanese wanted to fight back, but not against America, but against those that had caused war in the first place, the fascists of Japan and Germany and help free the world from that oppression. They wanted to prove they were on the side of freedom and they went on to form the most decorated Army unit of it’s size in WWII, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team.
Now we have the same situation again, a majority that just wants peace and raise their family free of tyranny. They also have a handful among them that threatens America, but it’s more then that, these immigrants want to bring an alien way, Sharia Law, to the US that would threaten to bring what they are trying to escape to America.
There are some who use the aftermath of WWII, of becoming friends with those nations, to shame people and to make them feel guilty so America blindly accepts the Syrian refugees with promises that they can’t ensure, and won’t be alive if the promises fall through.
These people, these appeasers, need to recall the whole of what they are trying to sell. From the way Japanese immigrants sold out America at Pearl Harbor to the 442nd RCT to dropping the A-bomb to force Japan into the path it came to travel.
This brings me to two questions for these appeasers:
1) Where are the Syrian men stepping up as the Japanese immigrants did to form the 442nd RCT and fight back?
2) Will we need to nuke Syria as we did Japan or burn their cities to the ground as we did in Germany in WWII to change their path?
To anyone that wants to believe the vetting process is absolutely perfect, even after San Bernadino and the woman terrorist sliding through the process, invite Syrian refugees to live in your home. The odds are only 1 in 20,000 that person or persons will be a terrorist. 1 in 20k would be pretty good odds if it were the lottery, but for your life?
Be careful what you wish for, you might get it, because all it takes is a handful of terrorists (or even just one or two) to destroy your life and kill your children. Surely we have learned that by now
