Yes we did ask the Europeans to take in Mideast refugees for us, and they are doing us a favor because otherwise they would be trying to come to the US instead. When you attack and occupy a county, like we did in Iraq, Syria, Libya, etc., you become legally responsible for refugees you created, under international law. Pearl Harbor was essentially a terrorist attack. The only reason there were not more is that the US was so distant and hard to get to. It is cheaper to get to the US these days, so now you will get more terrorist attacks if you cause harm like war.
