    Glad to know the liberal left cares more about the "war crimes" of American soldiers than a genocide by jihadists in Sudan.
    Max Boot tells it like it is.

    The killing can only be stopped if the Europeans and the USA put
    a force together mainly financed by the EU.

    Both sides excuse their inactivity by pointing fingers.

    The killing in this region is Arab-on-black. This particular racio-ethnic combination-slash-conflict is simply not one that commands any media or government attention in the Western world.

    If...

    * Whites were killing blacks, attention would be drawn.
    * Arabs were killing Jews, ditto
    * Whites killing Jews, ditto

    In other words, your best bet for getting an intervention is to have either white perpetrators or Jewish victims. Nobody cares if Catholics kill Protestants in Ireland and vice versa.

    I'm open to examples that deviate from this general pattern, but I don't think you'll find many.

    WHo needs Europe? Once again, we'd be messing with France's financial colonization of North Africa, so your idea would not happen. Might as well wait on the UN to act as that.

    I think we could handle it just fine on our own.

    How about YOU don't be stupid? Fuck Europe. Fuck the EU and the UselessN. Thinking we need them for something is what's got us all caught up with their dumb asses to begin with.

    Time to cut bait. Let them fend for themselves since they're so damned high-n-mighty nowadays.

    I'd hit those gov't-backed murderers with everything I had available in the region, and if Europe -- specifically France -- don't like it, they can bring their fat asses down and do something about it.

    Good response. It does my heart good to know that you and those ostriches who think like you will get what you deserve in the end. It's just a shame you're going to take a lot of good people with you.

    :clap1: The silence of the EU and UN on genocide in Sudan is deafening.
