I think it would be a better idea if Europe made a policy of stepping up accepting legitimate refugees from camps in the Middle East reducing their burden while refusing to accept those, who often have dubious asylum claims, who arrive illegally. However actually putting this into practice would be difficult.
That would indeed be the right solution ..... as a bonus this would save lives and kill the income of people smugglers

This could be a first step in a reasonable world, definitely not in EU.

How about eliminating the conditions that generate refugees in the first place, and allow the people to stay in their own country? :think:

Just a thought....

The only possibility of that would occure when Eu says bi F*** YOU to both Nato and U.s. and then begins taking its own , independent course.

NATO is not a US franchise, and the US cannot dictate policy to NATO.

Why would they need to say "F* U"?
The EU is certainly free to pursue a different foreign policy to that of the US, especially as recent US foreign policy seems rather confused....

LOL, I wondered how long it would take for someone to blame it all on the USA.

Because that means getting directly involved in the mess in Syria and the rest of the middle east, and whatever you do will be wrong.

An international coalition is helping forces in Syria and Iraq to defeat ISIS but that takes time and even without ISIS the conflict will still exist in Syria at least.

The conditions that create refugees isnt something other countries can just go in and fix.

laughable. Africa and middle east cant be fixed. What do you suggest? erasing the population, total enslavement and raise them as new citizens?

africa and middle east cant be fixed and the reasonable solution is containment.
