According to Green logic, stopping the boats, [and the attendant deaths], was terribly UNcompassionate. “WE MUST TREAT THE PROBLEMS OF WOULD-BE ASYLUM SEEKERS WHERE THEY RESIDE”. Well, fair enough too, but I’m not sure what WE would be allowed to do for them in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, oh, etc. etc. Nothing is the answer! That is why the world has the U.N., to set up refuges for the persecuted in their or nearby countries. BUT, when we do try to help in their home countries by sending troops to assist in putting down the persecutors, at the request of their govts., Christine Milne is full of criticism! Back to logic school, Ms. Milne, you RAW PRAWN.
