WE ALL BUY THE BUSH DOCTRINE NOW:

Pressure grows for Darfur peace (BBC, 4/29/06)

The UN's top human rights official, Louise Arbour, is due in Sudan amid growing pressure on the government to end fighting in the Darfur region.

It comes as campaigners prepare to hold mass rallies across the US calling for an end to killings in Darfur.

On Friday, US President George W Bush endorsed the rallies, saying "genocide" in Sudan was unacceptable.


Let us hear no more about how America oughtn't intervene unilaterally in sovereign states for the sole purpose of vindicating human rights and liberal democracy.

Attributing it to the Sudan--now that's redefining sovereignity.

"for the sole purpose of vindicating human rights and liberal democracy."

This is about genocide, not democracy. Hello!

Anyway, thanks for drawing attention to Darfur!!!

I am in Europe and can't attend the Darfur rallies across the U.S. on April 30th. Therefore I have organized an online rally for Darfur together with many other German Bloggers.
