Obama’s passivity in the face of genocide in Syria
The world once again is watching genocidal mass slaughter, despite having as our U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, who parlayed a book denouncing American passivity in the face of genocide into a professorship at Harvard and her post at the U.N. It turns out that it was easier posturing as indignant than doing something about it at the U.N.
Resigning in protest when her boss failed to enforce the red line he proclaimed over chemical weapons apparently was out of the question for Power. And then all hell broke loose in Syria, with mass carnage.
A friend writes:
Thinking about self-described “genocide chick” Samantha Power and her boss and his wife and her hashtag responses to genocide, there was something gnawing at me. So, I did a bit of research and came up with this list:
Armenians in Turkey
Stalin’s Forced Famine in Ukraine
Rape of Nanking
Pol Pot in Cambodia
2014 - present
Eight genocides in the past 100 years.
Do you notice a pattern here?
Hmm, a clue might be found in American politics…
