Obama’s passivity in the face of genocide in Syria - Thomas Lifson




by Thomas Lifson

It turns out that it was easier posturing as indignant than doing something about it at the UN.

The world once again is watching genocide mass slaughter, despite having as our UN Ambassador Samantha Power, who parlayed a book denouncing American passivity in the face of genocide into a professorship at Harvard and her post at the UN. It turns out that it was easier posturing as indignant than doing something about it at the UN.

Resigning in protest when her boss failed to enforce the red line he proclaimed over chemical weapons apparently was out of the question for Power. And then all hell broke loose in Syria, with mass carnage.

A friend writes:
Thinking about self-described “genocide chick” Samantha Power and her boss and his wife and her hashtag responses to genocide, there was something gnawing at me. So, I did a bit of research and came up with this list:
Armenians in Turkey 1915-1918 1,500,000 killed
Stalin’s Forced Famine in Ukraine 1932-1933 7,000,000 killed
Rape of Nanking 1937-1938 300,000 killed
Holocaust 1938-1945 6,000,000 killed
Pol Pot in Cambodia 1976-1979 2,000,000 killed
Rwanda 1994 800,000 killed
Bosnia-Herzegovina 1992-1995 200,000 killed
Syria 2014 - present 500,000 killed

Eight genocides in the past 100 years.
Do you notice a pattern here?
Hmm, a clue might be found in American politics….
