Where Was The West's Intervention When 2.5 Million Sudanese Christians Died?
This didn't happen long long ago. It happened, in slow motion, during the last few decades. Where was the West? There was a Special Rapporteur, M. Gaston Biro, who reported what was happening.
Was the West held back because the Arab League wouldn't have approved? Would the West -- now that's busy fulfilling the "mandate" of the Arab League -- and just look at the way Susan "International Community" Rice scampered around trying to round up votes to vote as the United States did, something she never bothers to do when, clearly with no great enthusiasm, she raises her arm and casts the lone vote against some obscene anti-Israel measure (how different from Daniel Patrick Moynihan or Jeanne Kirkpatrick -- why, even William F. Buckley was better on that score)--do so today?
What about the persecution and killing of Christians in Muslim lands? What are the numbers, and how do they stack up, against the apparent handful of civilian casualties in Libya?
Is there any where in the world where the American government would intervente to stop Muslims from killing, in their own lands, non-Muslims -- Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and so on? Is there anywhere in the world where the American government would at the very least cut off all aid to such countries beginning, for example, with our permanent enemy that keeps being called an ally, Pakistan?
