Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 22, 2019

A week after first refugees crossed from northeast Syria into Iraq, the arrivals to northern Iraq continue. UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, teams on the ground report that of this morning more than 7,100 have arrived since last Monday. Most of them - just under 7,000 - are sheltered at the Bardarash refugee camp, some 140 kilometres east of the Iraqi-Syrian border. Most of the Syrian refugees come from cities and villages from northeast of Syria. Three out of four are women and children. There are unaccompanied children among the arrivals. Some refugees, especially children, require psycho-social first aid, and psycho-social support as they fled in fear in the midst of fighting. Some witnessed explosions and shelling. Refugees with relatives living in the area are allowed to leave the camp and join their families.

Sounds like Syrian refugee kids are cageless and are receiving better care than US/Mexican border.

Only 7000?

That's it?

Rookie numbers.

Barely even a small time *caravan*.

Gotta pump those numbers up.

7,000 is maybe a typo?

Kurds were claiming 60,000+ last week.

I think it was 60,000 that fled *to Turkey*.

The large flow of refugees *towards* the invaders was an early jolt to common assumptions.

Folks on the DR couldn't even name the towns that Turkey was threatening. Now they don't know who fled where.

"I think it was 60,000 that fled *to Turkey*."

I stopped trusting most *new sources* on the matter when Susan Rice posted the video of the *dead baby* that was blinking and rubbing its eyes. .

For Kurds? Of course.

We carved out safe haven for Kurds around Irbil long ago.

Snoof -- you were one of the front line drum *beaters*, completely unable to explain what was going on.

You are *consistently* unreliable.

Was I now?
Then surely you'd like to dredge up some deliciously embarrassing posts I made on this subject.
Can't wait!

You saying I have you mixed up with some other Democrat running around here with hair afire?
