From The Local in Sweden:
Sweden sees steep rise in asylum seekers
Published: 4 Jan 11 07:44 CET
Figures from Sweden’s Migration Board (Migrationsverket) reveal a sharp increase in the number of people who sought asylum in Sweden during 2010.
During the last year, 31,901 people applied for asylum in Sweden compared to 24,232 cases the year before.
Most asylum seekers were from Serbia, followed by Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo.
Guess what? Exactly from countries where the United States government and its NATO allies have waged and/or are still waging, so called “humanitarian wars“. Wars about which their propaganda claimed they would bring, in the Yugoslavia war case,
“multicultural tolerance“ ethnic cleansing and murdering people for selling their organs; and in the other war cases, “democracy and women’s rights” more bloodshed, anti-democracy and deterioration of women’s rights.
Oh, how stupid those refugees are, voting with their feet against the brave new world brought in at the point of the Pentagon’s guns [sarcasm off].
The number of unaccompanied refugee children who came to Sweden also increased. Last year the figure was 2,394, compared with 2,250 in 2009. The children come mainly from Afghanistan, Somalia and Iraq.
Kabul — Five-year-old Marjan sniffles from the cold as she struggles under her load. Hoisted on her back is a bag almost as big as she is.
Instead of going to school, Marjan scavenges for hours with her 10-year-old aunt collecting trash. It is a heavy burden for such a small child but a necessary one. The trash she collects is what her family uses as fuel for cooking and, more importantly, to fend off Kabul’s bitter winter.
It is a matter of life and death for someone so young. Last winter, Marjan’s baby brother died from the cold. …
UNICEF, the UN children’s agency, says that Afghanistan is the worst place in the world to be a child. One in five children do not live past the age of five. Afghanistan is second only to Sierra Leone when it comes to child mortality. Most of those deaths are caused by curable childhood diseases and malnutrition, compounded by the security situation, which means that parents are unable to access proper health care.
