The numbers associated with today's migration crisis are huge: 4 million Syrians fleeing their country; 3 million Iraqis displaced. www.npr.org...

What should be the worst worry is that with any type of migration, or invasion by numbers, people have not clue who within the masses are truly looking for a better way of life or just bringing unwanted problems to the already established citizens on the countries been affected.
If the countries been affected already have problems with poverty, healthcare and the economy, the migrating groups will be left to roam the cities with not chance to find any thing to do with their lives, they will concentrate on the areas where is already established groups of the same nationality.
If those areas are poor and needy it just will create more problems to already existing ones.
A lot of people think that is a humanitarian crisis, but is more than that, the repercussions will be something that people will be taking for the rest of their lifetimes as people that migrate from their countries of origins due to many factors never go back to their countries again.

Well, another social experiment by politicians who will be well shielded by the failures in years to come.
Terrorism is the least of worries. It's the long-term social impact of those who live in the places to be colonised by outsiders who hold no cultural similarities with their hosts. Germany is a beacon of civil liberties, women's rights and tolerance. Let's hope the Germany of today is able to absorb these migrants without compromising their society too much.
Anyway, by the time the migrants get their papers they'll be off elsewhere. This is Germany's problem and Europe's problem.
