Backwards Planet

Last week when Bolton resigned, his spokesperson listed one of his accomplishments as "promot[ing] the cause of peace in Darfur". In fact he did everything in his power to ensure that the UN was as ineffective as possible. And now the crises in Sudan has expanded, dragging in neighboring countries Chad and the Central African Republic. This has been going on for so long now, and the fact that, not only are we not able to stop it, but we can't even prevent it from getting worse, is a testament to how backwards we are as a planet. We don't have an effective organization that can jump in and stop genocides or other humanitarian tragedies? In 2006? Why not? There's no acceptable excuse. It's really sad.
