U.N. To Look For Genocide In Darfur

American VoicesWorld ISSUE 40•41 Oct 13, 2004

Last week, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan set up a commission to determine whether genocide has taken place in the Darfur region of Sudan. What do you think?

  • “So this might have been a genocide after all, and not a civil war in which only one side was fighting.”

    Harold Mercer –
    Systems Analyst

  • “I think the U.N. is going to find that the blame lies with all the Sudanese rap music that glamorizes genocide.”

    Amber Hughes –
    Program Aide

  • “I don't know why the U.N. is getting involved in the first place. I also don't know what 'U.N.' stands for.”

  • “I think the entire world will breathe a sigh of relief if the U.N. finds that it is not genocide. Well, everyone except for the half-million people who were murdered there.”

    Patrick Zink –
    Administrator

  • “Darfur, Darfur, Darfur. That's all you ever hear these days. That, and the ongoing slaughter of civilians at the hands of government troops and Maoist rebels in Nepal.”

    Teodoro Manzo –

  • “I sure hope the U.N. determines it was a genocide. Otherwise, none of the Sudanese will be covered under their genocide insurance.”
