Never again (will we allow Germans to kill Jews in 1940s Europe)

The Chinese and the Soviets Russians are expected tomorrow to block efforts to apply targeted sanctions against individuals in the Sudanese government who have been singled out as responsible for the attrocities in Darfur.

As of tomorrow two permanent members of the Security Council will essentially be on record as saying that they don't intend to allow the U.N. to do a damn thing (no matter how small) about Darfur. Any pretense from this point on that this genocide is going to be stopped through the international body is a lie and everyone knows it.

The U.N. is over, it has been for a long time. The world needs to accept it and move on.
