The influx of Tunisian refugees has put strain on the Schengen accord. France wants to modify the agreement to allow for temporary suspensions. The PS is outraged; the FN wants the accord abolished straightaway. Anyone who has seen the images of the long outdoor bread and soup lines in a park near the Périph', where many of the refugees are living in cardboard shelters along the railroad tracks, has to concede that there must be a more humane way to deal with the situation.

Yes. There is a more humane way to deal with the problem.

Protect France's sovereignty, enforce its borders, arrest illegal immigrants before they reach the shores of Europe, and bring them back to where they came from.

Exactly what are the navy and army for ?

Robert Marcheboir's demented vision (he calls it 'humane'!) of launching a military assault on North African refugees, preferably on the high seas, would seem to be a symptom of a serious déraisonnement taking hold of European opinion from Finland to Lampedusa. O times ...

Don't misrepresent my words, Brent. This is a favorite Leftist tactic, and you'll need more than that in order to persuade Europeans that they should give up their countries to foreigners.

I never advocated a "military assault" on people who are not "refugees", contrary to your allegations, but illegal economic immigrants.

I just want the French navy to stop them at sea and bring them back to where they came from.

I could even agree, in order to placate bleeding-heart liberals such as yourself, to save their lives by bringing them onboard our military ships, to feed them, to wash them, to have doctors examine them, and even to entertain them whith such luxuries that are available to modern times sailors, such as video games and movies.

But I want them out. And so do most Europeans. That's perfectly legal, legitimate and, yes, humane.

Inifinitely more so than admitting, in our country, hundreds of thousands of hostile, uneducated, illegal immigrants, who'll then proceed to live a life of unemployment, sucking on the socialist tit, and horrendous crime against the natives.

Of course, their ships, once emptied, should be sunk before TV cameras, in order to send a clear message back home, and deter people traffickers.

Explain me what's wrong with that, unethical, illegal or inhumane. If you can.
