What To Do In Darfur

Now here I do have some ideas. Following my last post on Darfur, Bush seems to be getting even more serious, and is suggesting that NATO take a more involved role in stopping the bloodshed in Darfur. It's about time. If anything should be done to help Darfur, waiting for the UN to help is absurd. It's time NATO gets involved, telling states that sovereignty is not a blanket protection from punishment for genocide or crimes against humanity. Power used in pursuit of liberal values is power well-used. The failure of the West to prevent the Rwandan genocide is one of the blackest marks on US foreign policy in recent history; let's not let it happen again.
