The report, recently released talks about the number of Refugees currently displaced (50 million) being the HIGHEST number since WW2.
I wonder if the ~11 million ''refugees'' that have slinked their way in to the US were counted?
But I digress, refugees are a great (or terrible) indicator of local and regional stability. I would be curious as to if there is any correlation
between the increase of refugees and the GWOT and regional instability in the ME directly related to the Sunni/Shia bloodletting that has been
exploding over the last decade or so.
I also am also curious if any total populations were included or excluded as to make this number seem more incredible. for example, were Ethnic Kurds,
or Tibetans included? Seeing as how they have been harangued for decades what category would they fall in to?
