The United Nations has reported that in 2014 there were more refugees, (both internal and cross border) than there have been since World War 2. About 18 million of them are cross border refugees, people trying to emigrate from their native land. A huge majority of these refugees have been fleeing from wars, directly or indirectly created by the United States, Britain, France, Turkey and Gulf States.
Around 2 1/2 million are from Afghanistan, a nation dismembered by George W. Bush and Tony Blair.
Another 2 1/2 million people have fled from Syria, a country that has been dismembered by the United States, Turkey, France and the Gulf States who have created, armed, trained, financed and given logistical support to every single anti government entity that initiated and are presently prosecuting that country’s civil war.
There are 1.2 million refugees from Somalia, a country devastated by the support of Washington and Riyadh for Al Shabaab, Washington has done this in part for Geo Political reasons. That is that Somalia, like Yemen, (the new escalation of Washington’s regional wars) controls the shipping lanes to the Gulf of Aden leading into the Red Sea, where 3 1/2 million barrels of oil flow daily, mostly to Europe. Washington also knows that there is oil in Somalia, (the Puntland fields) and possibly a lot more off of its coast.
There is also another 635,000 refugees from the Sudan, a country the American have finished dismembering, creating a failed state called South Sudan. Again the reason was oil. South Sudan was the part of the Sudan where all the oil was. According to the World Bank; “South Sudan is the most oil-dependent country in the world, with oil accounting for almost the totality of exports”.
Another 1/2 million refugees are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, (DRC). The DRC is the richest area of resources in Africa, with according to Forbes over $24 trillion in known “untapped deposits of raw mineral ores, including the world’s largest reserves of cobalt and significant quantities of the world’s diamonds, gold and copper.”
In Africa, Washington pits political, tribal, regional and religious factions against each other, giving money and weapons to whoever will best help it to maximize profits for its Multinationals. In the DRC that has led to this rich country being “the world’s least developed ………in terms of life expectancy, education, standard of living and key health indicators, like maternal and child mortality.” And Washington has helped to create and fund wars in that country that according to the International Committee of the Red Cross have killed more 5.4 MILLION people.
Over the past 20 years of Washington instigated and fueled DNC wars, how much wealth has been extracted from the country by Anglo American and French transnationals and how much has gone to the people? The half million refugees from the DRC today, represent the continuation of this bleeding.
And then we have another 400,000 refugees from Iraq. George W. Bush and Tony Blair know well who destroyed their country.
The United Nations Commission on Refuges, (UNCR) from whom these figures come, do not count the 5 million Palestinian refugees, who have fled from the US and British backed conquest of their lands by European Zionists.
But the 17 million figure for international refugees given by the UNCR, pails compared to the 38 million who are internally displaced. That is people who have lost their homes and livelihoods and had to flee to an uncertain fate in a hoped for more peaceful part of their own country. The number of the internally displaced has soared by 11 million in 2014 alone, where 30,000 people every day became homeless.
Among the new countries with soaring rates for internal displacement last year was Nigeria, with more than 1.5 million people. That has been due to Boko Haram, which is a CIA extortion racket again being done for oil.
In Libya there are now 400,000 internally displaced, thanks to then French president Sarkozy, Obama and Hillary Clinton’s dismemberment of the country.
And now in the Ukraine there are now 1.2 million internally displaced thanks to Obama’s Maidan Square coup. And There are also 900,000 Ukrainians from the Southeastern Provinces of the country who have fled to Russia thanks to a Washington backed civil war in the country waged by its political puppets in Kiev.
These numbers are not even counted in the UNHR’s figure of 18 million refuges.
And now in 2015, since Washington and its vassal state Saudi Arabia are starting a war against Yemen, besides the dead, as a humanitarian crisis grows, the refuge problem both external and internal will also soar.
In the world of internally displaced people, the worst is still Syria at 7.6 million and Iraq 2.2 million. Those are both places where Obama and his stooges have done their very worst.
With the others wars, still in full swing and the new war in Yemen having only just begun, it would be a sure bet to say the number of refugees for 2015 will print significantly higher than this 2014 report.
