"Change the demography of Darfur and make it void of African tribes"

Nicholas Kristof Times column today discusses the archives being assembled on Darfur by the African Union.

"During past genocides against Armenians, Jews and Cambodians, it was possible to claim that we didn't fully know what was going on. This time, President Bush, Congress and the European Parliament have already declared genocide to be under way. And we have photos.

This time, we have no excuse. "

The international community's response? "Well, ya know, uhhhm China, Russia, uh Security Council, state sovereignty. Look, we're looking into it. Be patient and we'll let the International Criminal Court deal with it once they're done with the killing."
