New Route to the West

Reader comment on item: [West Africa:] New Route to the West

Submitted by steven L (United States), May 31, 2006 at 00:09

The3 only solution to the immigration problem although very difficult to resolve is to create economic situations in these countries that resemble more and more what is happening in the Western societies, including Japan, Australia, Israel perhaps in the near future China.

Remarkably enough not a single Muslim country is included in this group.

Religious fanaticism is incompatible with true progress, freedom of thought, science, democracy, human rights etc…

The rich countries continuous exploitation of the 3rd world, not excluding what is wrong with the 3rd world countries, to some extend create this desperate immigration. The brain drain from poor countries towards the riche countries is counter productive. We are digging our own grave.

When will the western world (the rich countries) understand? It is late, is it too late?
