Good News for People who Don’t Like Genocide (bad news if you do)

The Washington Post reports today that the government of Sudan is uncomfortable with Barack Obama’s agressive opposition to genocide. A quote from Ghazi Suleiman, a member of the Southern People’s Liberation Movement, which has a power-sharing agreement with Sudan’s ruling party: “I think we really will miss the judgments of George W. Bush.”

That says more about Bush than Suleiman or Sudan.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden have both spoken about the need for a larger international presence in cases of genocide. And they are expected tofollow the advice of many advisors and reports that urge more involvement in humanitarian issues throughout the world.

And Susan E. Rice, Obama’s choice for Ambassador to the United Nations, is an ouspoken proponent of U.S. intervention in genocides.
