Occasionally when I am searching the Internet for news and information I come across some world event that completely nauseates and infuriates me. For many of my critics, it must be similar to when all of you open The Signal each week and find that I have written yet another column.
In all seriousness, my fury and disgust this week did not originate over discovering an opposing viewpoint to the Social Security issue or a debate over whether another historical figure may or may not have been gay, but that humans refuse to act against evil.
British statesman Edmund Burke stated, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” And I firmly believe it. This refusal to act in the face of evil has plagued mankind since its creation and continues today in the halls of the United Nations.
The United Nations was created to ensure that world wars and holocausts never occurred again.
Recently, under the watch of Kofi Annan and his cabal of corruption, the UN has been more than content to ignore genocide and take bribes from tyrants like Saddam Hussein (which warrants another article).
This week the United Nations under pressure from the United States grudgingly sent an investigation to the embattled Darfur region of Sudan and determined that no genocide had taken place there.
This appraisal of the situation is simply shocking. Apparently it is no longer genocide when an entity supports the murder, rape, pillage and destruction of scores of villages of people of opposing racial, religious and/or political persuasions.
To give you a sense of the destruction, an estimated 1.8 million people have been forced from their homes as their villages were destroyed. These suffering refugees now live in camps where people are dying in droves. More than 70,000 people are believed to have died from hunger and disease since March 2004.
The evil forces of radical Islam have struck again and the United Nations has allowed them to get away with it. The National Islamic Front, which rules Sudan, and Islamic janjaweed militias, carry out genocide under the banner of jihad against the Christian Sudanese and black Muslims who are denizens of the Darfur region.
Arab Muslims have killed an estimated 2 million in cold blood over two decades in a Hitleresque “Islamization” campaign in an attempt to “purify” their country from blacks and non-Muslims.
This is quite possibly one of the most open and shut cases of genocide in recent memory, yet the United Nations refuses to classify it as such for one reason:they would have to actually do something.
The United Nations has the power and the responsibility under Chapter VII of the UN Charter to respond to acts of aggression and intervene through sanctions and even full-scale military invasion.
Not surprisingly, no such actions are planned for the butchers of Sudan. Under the protocol of international law the UN and the European “Appeasement” Union have encouraged the trial of those responsible in the World Court at the Hague.
The wussy European demands must have generated a great deal of laughter from the Sudanese government as they refuse to allow an international court to try any of its citizens.
So we are back to square one. Sudan will not come clean about its genocidal activities nor will the UN press them to. The UN does not have the guts to ask its member nations to call genocide by its proper name or order a military response because it will inform the world that they have lost control over the situation.
This tragic dilemma has many things in common with the massacres in Rwanda in 1994. As world leaders debated whether to classify the conflict in central Africa as genocide a half a million people were killed in savage butchery.
The United Nations and anyone who supports them need to comprehend that evil people and corrupt nations have no respect for international laws and diplomatic protocols.
Evil people will ignore them and use force to get what they want.
Instead of cowering behind the frail World Courts and international agreements, it is high time the world realized that radicals who slaughter innocents in the name of religion must be dealt with by strong, concerted military action.
Force is the only thing the janjaweed miltia and the Sudanese government will listen to, and the world should give them a taste of their own medicine and while we are at it, ram it down their throats.
The film “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” has a scene where Tolkien’s heroes are besieged by an army of orcs and all hope seems lost.
In a disheartened state King Theoden remarks “So much death, what can men do against such reckless hate?” to which Aragorn responds, “Ride out with me. Ride out and meet them.”
This is how I feel we as a human race must respond to evil, charging out to meet and defeat those who kill, rape, starve and maim their fellow man.
Nonetheless, many sad and pathetic representatives of the human race cower behind their walls with their appeasement, cowardice, stupidity and apathy, shutting their eyes and covering their ears not wanting to see or hear what is really happening.
