How many more innocent lives have to be extinguished before the rest of the world wake up to the genocide and atrocities committed by a government on its own people. Wasn't Rwanda a grim reminder of our failure to intervene and stop the massacre of millions of innocent men, women and children. Why has America, who asserted itself as the global policemen, took no interest in the genocide in Darfur ? Was it because Muslims killed Muslims, so let it be ? Even more shocking were the speeches by representatives from various Arabs countries that doubted the existence of such atrocities. Was it because Arabs killing black Africans, so let it be ? Is the UN a whore, as mentioned by the Executive Director of the UN Watch on Human Rights.
The UN is definitely whoring itself to the big and powerful. It is a do nothing and good for nothing organisation as far as security of its citizens are concerned. Its human rights watch is a joke.Over the past two decades the world have seen atrocious abuse of human rights and massacre of innocent and helpless people in many parts of the world and what have the UN done in term of intervention and prevention of further loss to human lives ? From the killing fields of Cambodia, ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, mass tribal killing in Rwanda to the genocide in Chechnya, the UN has not been able to intervene and contain the bloodshed. It has failed miserably to protect the hapless victims of human rights abuse.
The Iraq War, was testimony of its weakness when the US and Britain unilaterally decided to invade Iraq.The Security Council was a lame duck and other members were helpless as America, the most powerful of the lot, bullied the rest into acquiescence. What justification the Occident have to wage war on another sovereign nation.
Many of us looked upon the United States as the epitome of freedom and justice. I was once a great believer and supporter of America's sanctity of freedom and human rights. After having seen their conducts over the past decade I have completely lost faith in the sincerity and truthfulness of what they preached. Who is responsible for the daily killing of innocent civilians in Iraq ? If Iraq was not invaded would such atrocities have occurred ? As long as America stays in Iraq the killing will continue.Once they leave, Iraq will disintegrate.It's another one of the many follies of America's foreign policy.
In March 1998 on a visit to Rwanda, President Bill Clinton said "We come here today partly in recognition of the fact that we in the United States and the world community did not do as much as we could have and should have done to limit what occurred in Rwanda". An ex President of United States who claimed he didn't know the intensity of the problem, that's why America didn't act. Would you believe him ? In fact, the United States did virtually nothing. The Hutu government and its militiamen murdered almost 1.0 million Tutsi using firearms, machetes and a variety of garden implements.It was the fastest and most efficient killing spree of the twentieth century.
The killing of innocent civilians by state sponsored militiamen, the Janjaweed still continue unabated. Are we going to stand still and let the genocide continue ? We maybe helpless but America is not.
SHAME ON YOU AMERICA.
