Pretend To Love Them Over There

The unwillingness of the two major Afghanistan war participants - UK and US - to take in refugees, and the unwillingness especially of the right wing which for years pushed these conflicts the most, undermines any claims of humanitarian motives.

The general anti-immigrant sentiment of our objective press (constant freaking out about THE BORDER) makes their expressed concerns transparently absurd, as well, as you can't feed xenophobia selectively without predictable consequences. There are always individuals with such motives, of course, but they're mostly marks.
