It appears that the crisis

It appears that the crisis in Sudan is finally getting some media coverage. It was a front-page story in my local paper yesterday, and is given a photo spread in Newsweek this week. This atrocity warrants military intervention, to stop the Arab militias from committing further genocide. We must not let this become a second Rwanda. The problem, is, however, that U.S. troops cannot sustain an intervention there. We are ready over-stretched because of our deployments in Iraq. This, Mr. President, is why we don’t have wars of choice. When we intervene unnecessarily, we run the risk of letting genocide occur. This is where our troops should be, Mr. President. The war in Iraq wasn’t humanitarian; it has helped allow genocide to happen. The people of Darfur deserve an apology, Mr. President.
