Here he comes again, Top Jimmy goes to Darfur and…
“Carter said Washington’s use of the term genocide to describe the situation in Darfur, where international estimates say 200,000 people have died and 2.5 million driven from their homes, was unhelpful.“There is a legal definition of genocide and Darfur does not meet that legal standard. The atrocities were horrible but I don’t think it qualifies to be called genocide,” he said.Washington is almost alone in branding the 4 1/2 years of violence in Darfur genocide. Khartoum rejects the term, European governments are reluctant to use it and a U.N.-appointed commission of inquiry found no genocide, but that some individuals may have acted with genocidel intent.”
Here is the definition of genocide:
the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group
Oh please, they only had “genocidel intent (sic)”… After all, 200 thousand people is cheap change for those guys! Let’s be careful and not piss these beacons of freedom off!
Good Ol’ Jimmy never changes. Always on the side of peace… with dictators.
