Armies could fight back

I have been watching the ever-increasing number of migrants fleeing their lands.

I think that, collectively, they could constitute an army of fit, young, healthy men, specially trained and equipped to quell and destroy ISIS insurgents.

Are not the countries they were born and bred in worth fighting for?

Having cleared them out, they could go back to their land of origin and rebuild countries they could be proud of.

No doubt such a project would require a tremendous amount of revenue.

That could easily be funded collectively by several nations with the same mind-set, wishing the extermination of this blight on our humanity.

The Brussels Assembly appears to be at a complete loss as to how to handle the present migration situation.

Perhaps organising such an army could be the answer.

For the long term, such a move would solve a multitude of problems – new countries blossoming, misplaced persons going back home.

The advantages are endless.

Countries that have opened their borders during this global crisis, offering humanitarian help to those afflicted, would witness a large percentage of people wishing to go back to their homeland, thereby easing over-population.

Just an old clear thinker offering an opinion.
