SkyWatchTV News 6/20/16: UN Wants to Help Refugees, USA Wants to Make More
Today is World Refugee Day. The United Nations wants you to consider the plight of refugees and sign a petition to “stand with” them. On the other hand, the US State Department wants the president to launch military strikes against Syria. Apparently 3 million Syrian refugees (and 6.6 million displaced) aren’t enough.
Also: With refugees come six diseases that had been nearly wiped out in the US; FBI released edited transcript of Omar Mateen’s 911 call; Senate votes to require women to register for the draft; full moon lands on summer solstice for first time since 1967; Noah’s Ark replica nearly sinks; and man dies after watching new horror film — and then his body disappears along with the man transporting it.
