The LA Times covers the Bush administration’s dealings with Sudan, which seem to imply that in exchange for cooperation fighting terrorism, the Bush administration has taken a softer stance on genocide in Darfur. That’s a harsh claim to make, and I’m not sure I’m ready to buy it, but it does express a brutal reality. To what length do we go to get intelligence on terrorists? Does terrorism trump genocide?
Bleh. I realize it’s not an easy choice, but it certainly is ugly. Weighing lives is always a lose-lose game.
And have I mentioned how you can take action on Darfur? It’s as simple as sending an e-mail to your representatives.
