how ungrateful can you get?
I'm sorry this just cracks me up.
<SCENE: DAHFUR> Janjaweed militias, sponsored by the goverment, proceed to burn a village and kill local inhabitants.
<SCENE: NEW YORK>
UN GUY 1: Oh my! It looks like the government is killing all these inncocent people! We should do something! This is inhuman!
UN GUY 2: (reads paper) hmmm...yes...I see. But is it "genocide" per ce, or just goverment militias running amok slaughtering people?
UN GUY 1: Uhh, does it really matter? People are dying, we have to do something!
UN GUY 3: You are correct. I know this situation calls for drastic measures! We will....DUM DUM DUMMMMM....Hold a meeting of the Security Council!
<SCENE: DAHFUR> Janjaweeds kill hundreds more people, burn more villages.
<SCENE: NEW YORK> One week later...
UN GUY 1: Ladies and gentlemen of the Security Council! We have an emergency! The government of Sudan is sponsoring these militias that are killing thousands! We have to help!
UN GUY 4: Whoa Whoa Whoa! Let's not go flying off the handle here! Now where did we land on the issue of "is it genocide or not"?
UN GUY 1: WHO THE HELL CARES?!
UN GUY 2: What are you, a warmongering idiot? This is important! The distinction between government sponsored genocide and government sponsored militias running amok killing people is enormous!
UN GUY 3: We should get Sudan's perepective. Sudan, is this all true?
SUDANESE GOVT REP: No.
mumbling throughout the council and audience
UN GUY 4: Well this sure casts things in a differnet light.
UN GUY 3: It would be foolish to intervene now, we must settle these conflicting reports.
UN GUY 1: Are you frickn' nuts?! What, would take Saddam's word that he was disarming? This is as crazy as...as...as putting Libya as head of the Human Rights Council!
UN GUY 2:...
UN GUY 3:...
UN GUY 4:...
UN GUY 2: OK OK OK! We will appoint our special envoy on genocide to look into it, and then send some guy on a nice photo-op to hold hands with refugee children. Meanwhile we will discuss the possibility of oil sanctions...
<TO BE CONTINUED>
Again, the UN would be terribly funny if it wasnt so sad.
Ditto. Get the US out of the UN, Get the UN out of the US.
the UN gets better at this deception of pretending to actually care about these people
remember in rwanda they completely ignored it for months (with the help of madeline albright of course)
The UN operates on a similar philosophy as the Hollyweird super liberals.
Hollywood diletantes became enraged that a white South African government was depriving its black population of their civil rights and imprisoning dissenters.
Now that certainly is cause for concern and I would have applauded their efforts except for the fact that at the same time the South Africans were denying blacks their civil liberties, Idi Amin was murdering his people by the hundreds of thousands.
Was there any outcry from the Hollywood dumbasses? Nope. Not a peep. Apparently they reserve their ire exclusively for white governments who deprive their black populace of civil rights. Somehow they seem to feel that it is not an issue when a black government deprives its black poplulace of their very lives.
Perhaps that's why we have not heard very much from this same crowd on the Darfur issue.
Will the REAL racists please stand up? Yeah - you too, Bill Clinton.
I'm sure they wouldn't "blacklist" anyone for speaking out in support of our current administration policies, would they ?
to be fair, how widely reported in the american media was the uganda slaughter? i went through middle and high school barely hearing about apartheid, let alone uganda. hell, i personally educated my class about rwanda and sudan (just me being the little activist annoyance throughout high school).... and in the 70's we didn't have the kind of widespread world news in your face like we do today (not dismissing their inaction but just wondering since i wasn't alive back then)
where are all the super liberals for darfur? aside from danny glover, will smith, jada pinkett, jamie foxx and a couple of other black and latino stars who've gotten themselves arrested in protests at sudanese and chinese counsulates (richard gere is always one for pissing the chinese off) or done charity events for genocide survivors,
where's michael moore and his ilk?
i don't see pamela anderson or martin sheen doing jackshit for these people...
