    The UN High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) is proud to endorse the fantastic successes of the US efforts to free the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. After all, “we did get rid of Saddam” has become the rationale and justification of choice for America’s nine year war and occupation of Iraq.

    The UNHCR writes:

    Afghan and Iraqi refugees accounted for almost half of all refugees under UNHCR’s responsibility worldwide; three out of ten refugees in the world were from Afghanistan (3 million). Afghans were located in 75 different asylum countries. Iraqis were the second largest refugee group, with 1.7 million people located primarily in neighbouring countries.

    More than 15,500 asylum applications were lodged by unaccompanied or separated children in 69 countries in
    2010. The applications came mostly from Afghan and Somali children.

    And so, on behalf of all Americans, I say to those refugees simply this: You’re welcome!
