While in Jordan, we were told that the government there was already overwhelmed with Palestinians who came looking for benefits. I can't imagine how the Jordanians can handle all these Syrians!

Like living on the Mexico-US border here--major difference is that Mexico isn't at war. Hopefully things will get worked out.

pam w--Thanks for the Palestinian information.

What a mess. I certainly feel sorry for the Syrians who are forced to flee to refuge camps. Another cauldron ready to boil over.

It's just a terrible situation no matter how one looks at it. From what I've heard elsewhere Jordan's got issues of its own and with this crisis is being stretched to its limits. Thanks Cal.

This is very sad, considering so many are children. When I was in Jordan, they already had problems because of the influx of refugees from Israel and the problem of no water in Jordan. Jordan was the only country then that took in Israel's refugees. Jordan is a good country that tries to keep peace with their surrounding countries of militant leaders, but all the refugees pouring in may put Jordan into collaps. Syria and Israels injustices needs to be dealt with, not Iran!
