#1 Since children inherited the tribal identity of their fathers....

Embedded takeaway.

#2 Ah, lesson - the world's sins are their problems. We aint buying the con anymore. Diversity you understand. Celebrate it!

#3 After the genocide, many blamed the Western powers such as the United States, United Kingdom, and France for doing too little to stop the genocide.

Talk about having it both ways - the burden apparently always falls on 'Western powers' whenever there's a major cock-up overseas, then the armchair QB's (like our own Herb McCoy, for instance) get to play the blame game with hindsight providing the 20/20 lens when a less than perfect result crops up.

Do I have that right?

Of course you have it right. We all know whom it is that can never be blamed or held to account for their own brutal actions.

Perhaps another 60,000 to 80,000 years of global interaction will bring about a degree of civilization.

#5 The Clintons and Bath House Barry never hesitate to use the savagery of others as an excuse for promoting their own politics. Rwanda, Kosovo, etc. They don't feel those people's pain at all, but they sure do find it useful. I'm going to add Boosh to that assessment as well...

#6 We're $20 some trillion in debt and yet we still give billions to prop up corrupt dictatorships all over the Third World. There's gotta be some graft in all that.

#7 Raj,
To be fair to Herb, he's a skeptic about American meddling in other countries for "good" or "bad" reasons.

#8 Wow, people talk about me when I'm not here? I'm so touched.

And they invent things I didn't say and then put them in my mouth, and then criticize me for the things I didn't say? Wow, just like a leftist. Good job there.

#11 The lesson of Rwanda is they don't need guns to slaughter enemies wholesale so we shouldn't get involved.
