Obama’s Darfur Solution to Russia

Sen. Obama in Hawaii
RUSSERT: He's 42 years old, he's a former law professor. He is Mr. Putin's campaign manager. He is going to be the new president of Russia. And if he says to the Russian troops, you know what, why don't you go help Serbia retake Kosovo, what does President Obama do?

OBAMA: Well, I think that we work with the international community that has also recognized Kosovo, and state that that's unacceptable. But, fortunately, we have a strong international structure anchored in NATO to deal with this issue.
--The New York Times
Senator Obama wants to say that he told us so concerning Russia’s war on Georgia. Obama claims that he was been warning the world for months about Russian aggression however when asked directly in an hypothetical by the late Tim Russert in the Democrat primary debates held earlier this year what he would do if Russia helped Serbia to invade Kosovo Senator Obama gave the Darfur response.(see video)

As many as 200,000 to 400,000 innocent people have been killed and more than 2.5 million more have been driven from their homes. These refugees now face starvation, disease, and rape, while those who remain in Darfur risk torture, death, and displacement.

What has the United Nations done to stop the violence? What have the high profile Movie stars and peace activist done to stop the killing?

Let Darfur be a warning to all people. If a nation or a state needs protection against violence, murder, genocide or injustice do not wait on Liberals or their institutions to do anything to fight against the persecutors. Liberals will make a country like Darfur a cause celebre but they will not wage war to save you. They will not lift a actual finger to help.
(see video)

What is the Darfur solution? What has the United Nations or any European country done to stop the 5years of murder and ethnic cleansing in Darfur? NOTHING! Oh they’ve condemned the violence, in fact they’ve passed three resolutions against the violence so after five years of the international body doing nothing for Sen. Obama to offer NATO as an answer against Russian aggression is laughably ignorant.
The 21 year Sudanese civil war between the Arab Muslim Khartoum government in the north and the black African Christian rebels in the south has spurred the world's greatest humanitarian crisis since the Rwandan genocide in 1994 and the World community is doing literally nothing about it. (see here)
1500 reported killed in the Russian Georgia Battle. Russia has bombed Georgia and has taken Georgian territory in blatant acts of war and aggression. Sen. Obama told Tim Russert that if he were President his answer to the situation would be to hide behind NATO yet he criticized the Bush administration’s handling Russian relations.

Can we expect any Liberal to actually respond to aggression in the world? If the U.N.'s response to Darfur and Sen. Obama response to the Russian attack against Georgia is any indication all we can expect from Liberals or a Democrat President is talk.

And frankly Sen. Obama there are some situations that we can’t just talk our way out of.
