You Need To Flee To A More Relevant Place

In my scarce minutes online at Starbucks (my mother-in-law lacks wifi and the neighbors are rude enough to protect theirs from e-poachers), I saw a tweet reproduced at the Duck, and it inspired this tweet:

My point here is simply--you might expect more intervention by Western countries if they were feeling the brunt of the refugee flow.  They would act to end the conflict, or try to, to limit the flow.  Remember France and Libya?  Yeah.  So, the problem for Syria's people is that they are not making it far enough to countries that could leverage NATO and the US into acting.

Not a great New Year's resolution to resolve to flee farther, is it?
