So when are we going to do something about this?

Genocide and the UN: "I don’t have much time for Colin Powell, as a rule, but it’s only fair to note that his willingness to describe what’s happening in Sudan as genocide contrasts very favourably with the appalling behaviour of the Clinton administration over Rwanda."

Good for Colin Powell, and John Danforth. But Clinton sent troops to Yugoslavia, while NATO sat on its collective hands. Despite having overextended outselves in Iraq, we still have troops elsewhere that could do something in Darfur. Where's the outrage? Where are the protestors?

During the recent Republican National Convention, not one group of protestors issued a call to action to just do something. If our goal was to protect the Iraqis from Saddam, the very least we can do is insist that something be done here.
