As Iraq Slogger reports the generosity of the Bush administration when it comes to refugees from war-torn Iraq simply knows no bounds. The month of June saw an almost unbelievable 6300% increase in the number of Iraqi refugees admitted into the US. The totals for this year are shown below:
Still, as Iraq Slogger reports in another story, the US has failed to deliver any meaningful assistance whatsoever to the countries that have absorbed millions of Iraqis who have fled the chaos and mayhem of the Iraq War:
Despite financial pledges for UN programs and strongly-worded rhetoric expressing deep concern for displaced Iraqis at the April conference in Geneva, "the two countries caring for the biggest proportion of Iraqi refugees - Syria and Jordan - have still received next to nothing in bilateral help from the world community."
What happened to the conservative virtue of "taking responsibility for your actions"? Where are the pious morally pure and righteous neoconservatives who unleashed the disaster taking place in Iraq today? How is it that the people who were so concerned about the 5,000 Iraqis who were killed in the Halabja poison gas attacks can be so indifferent to the fate of millions of Iraqis who fine themselves penniless and destitute after being forced to flee for their lives? Where are you Bill Kristol? The Iraqi refugees need your help!
