If only our President cared half as much about genocide as he does about Iraqi oil….

    Politicizing the definition of Genocide–the timing of Osama Bin Ladin’s capture–the preparedness for Homeland Security in the U.S.–is iniquitous, but seemingly, ubiquitous to U.S. governmental SOP–that’s the nature of attitude that should have been changed by 9/11–that’s the lesson that still has to be learned–the question is–are we gonna have to learn it the hard way–we need decency through politics–that’s the new concept–anything less equals disaster on a scale that can’t even be imagined.

    Where is the outrage from the UN General Assembly?
    Oh yeah, they’re busy decrying Israel’s treatment of the martyr brigade ranks. There are scarce few brave enough in the Arab leadership to offer any help or comment on the situation.
    Bush has nothing to offer the world in the way of International policy. His currency is so low it can only serve to further inflame and degrade the situation.
    I’m afraid we are going to have to dump W before we, as a nation can expect to move meaningfully toward fighting this abhorrent, murderous regime in Sudan. We can only hope that the media will return to their mandate as the Fourth Estate and tell the world to heed the words ‘Never Again.’

    Declaring this as genocide is the only way to force immediate action from the UN and its partner countries.

    I hate the fact that the UN has not done more to help the Sudan, many of my friends from the right point to this fact as an excuse for why the current administration invaded Iraq without participation from the UN.(They don’t explain why we were invading Iraq in the first place, but that is another topic)
    What can we do to fix the UN, instead of abandoning it like the right wants? Why won’t the UN classify this as genocide and do something to help these people?
