The irrelevant secretary-general of the United Nations

Whose inaction? At the top of the United Nations, it's Kofi Annan (who also failed in Rwanda). Along with him are the United States and the rest of the world. Here in America, we are far from Darfur, a place that, in Kristof's words, "stinks of fear and death." When the corpses there reach Rwanda's total of 800,000, maybe someone here will light a candle of contrition.
