Venezuela helps absorb west-created refugees

As some countries of Europe continue to cope with a crisis also experienced in other overwhelmed countries closer to the deliberately inflicted disaster, the US offers to welcome, in true Statue of Liberty fashion, the downtrodden, US to accept extra 30,000 refugees over two years, says John Kerry As The Guardian reports,

The US will accept an extra 30,000 refugees from around the world over the next two years, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, as the Obama administration came under further pressure to take in more victims of the Syrian civil war.

And no longer startling in the cynical game of commitment to responsibility (for disasters of its own creation),

“The need is enormous, but we are determined to answer the call,” Kerry said, during remarks in Berlin. Kerry reportedly did not say whether any of the additional refugees would be from Syria.

In contrast in the Latin America and Caribbean region, some countries are forthcoming in their compassion, in their fulsome welcome to refugees, for whose plight they have not been responsible.

The jury of history and the present has long rendered its verdict. Yet exceptional hubris rules over compunction, over remorse.
