The New York Times editorial page today praised President Bush for his recent statement on Darfur. I completely agree.
Yesterday, President Bush rightly served notice that America has finally run out of patience with Mr. Bashir’s duplicity and will press the international community to stand up to the genocide.
At least 200,000 of Darfur’s people have already been killed and more than 2.5 million have been driven from their homes.
Good for President Bush.
Not that one thing has anything to do with the other, but to keep things in perspective:
- In October of 2006, the British "Lancet" and Baltimore's own Johns Hopkins University announced the results of their study which showed that over 655,000 people had been killed in Iraq.
- In April of this year Reuters reported that close to 4 million people in Iraq had been driven from their homes.
