Darfur

This video is almost too sad to post. This video comes with a warning of graphic scenes. I think that they were tastefully done. The Bush administration has had so many failures it is hard to single out the best, worst, biggest. Darfur must be in the top 2 or 3.

Fixing this crap would be relatively easy. We need the will and the money. We don’t have either but we can ask our kids for a loan. We go in with overwhelming force (Powell doctrine) and restore order. Criminals go to the Hague. Set up a temp government. Deliver basic services. Set up democracy institutions. No, really, democratic, not the faux thing that we set up in Iraq. 3 – 5 year commitment for the good of humanity. Not for oil or for profit. No Halliburtons. Just because it is the right thing to do. Damn it.
