Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
You are a little off-kilter with one of your statements/questions. There is an American presence in Haiti, albeit minimal. And I am like many another in this day and age; I have been bombarded with so many lies from politicians and their media mouthpieces in recent years that I have to hesitate when I hear words like "weapons of mass destruction" and "genocide" and "humanitarian intervention" that I am loath to form an opinion on the situation, wherever it may be. And there's oil in Darfur. Take Milosevic---the NATO powers had everyone believing that , definitely, this man was a murderous monster who had slaughtered countless thousands of human beings in an orgy of "ethnic cleansing". Now?---They are having one helluva task finding enough evidence of such actions to make the charges viable in the Hague court! So when do we start believing again what we hear? I do think that the U.N. should take some direct action; and that means ALL of the U.N. organisation ---of which America is, believe it or not, a member. We want no repeat, surely, of the Iraq "coalition of the willing" fiasco.
