A Must Read

Kofi Annan writes in the WaPo today regarding his concerns for the current state of affairs in the Darfur region of Sudan. Why certain capable forces in the "First World" sit idley by, I will not understand.

The US (read: George W. Bush) acted almost unilaterally in its invasion of Iraq on shakey moral grounds and even shakier/shadier political ones. At a time when our foreign policy is allegedly rooted in the notion of American Moral Superiority, why not finally act with scruples and moral intent to do something to stop the Khartoum-orchestrated atrocities in western Sudan? The alternative is a repeat of Madeline Albright and Bill Clinton's complacent feigning of ignorance during the runup to the Rwandan Genocide.

I'll take option A.
