Right, had outside powers not intervened to stoke the uprising in the first place, flying weapons from Croatia via Istanbul and driving them across the border in 2011 and 2012. Russia, mind you, didn't enter the picture to support their ally and protect their vital interests until AFTER the other powers that be put deadly weapons in the hands of foreigners within Syria. This was a textbook coup d'tat from outside powers, by no stretch of the imagination was this ever, at any point in time, a grassroots 'Syrian' uprising. I am being objective and fair on the analysis here, having worked in Ukraine during 2 years of Russian invasion, I have no love for the Russians, trust me.
No, the recent drive to "unite families," had really nothing to do with children integrating. It had to do with a report released by the German government that found from a 10% rise in crimes over the last two years, 90% were committed by refugees/asylum seekers. They posited that if they reunited them with "women and their children," they would act as a mediating force to help them be 'less violent.' So, this is the race to the bottom of low expectations. Don't try to disguise it as anything else.
Your side has lost this argument, multiculturalism is a proven failure. Time to move on and bury this failed experiment in the bin.
