Now that we’ve been re-educated on the reasons we entered Iraq (for those scoring at home, it’s gone from the threat of WMDs to the policy of spreading freedom and democracy and basically putting the world’s thugs on notice), isn’t fair to ask why we’re not doing much of anything when it comes to Darfur?
During past genocides against Armenians, Jews and Cambodians, it was possible to claim that we didn’t fully know what was going on. This time, President Bush, Congress and the European Parliament have already declared genocide to be under way. And we have photos.
Is our policy on such matters (leaders who participate actively or passively in the killing of their own people) clear? Where is the Crawford Cowboy?
