Letter to the Editor: Refugee situation needs careful consideration


The cartoon on the Opinion page  in the Nov. 21 issue  is just another example of the progressive left trying to use moral guilt instead of careful, considered thought on the issues concerning this nation. I understand all views are to be considered, but mainstream media (Northern Virginia Daily) seems to run with the flavor of the day.
Protectionism is not the issue here. The reality of the nature of the enemy that seeks to instill terror, chaos and death to all that are not like minded is the issue. Fact: women and children are used by these extremists groups to commit heinous acts against all that are not like minded.
Careful consideration is the only logical response to the Syrian refugee situation, not guilt laden shameful grandstanding.
