Esa bien podía ser la traducción del título de esta editorial del New York Times:
Talking Darfur to Death
Published: March 31, 2007
The world has been discussing the genocide in Darfur for more than three years. But some 200,000 deaths later, it has yet to take effective action to force the Sudanese government to stop sponsoring the mass murder, rape, torture and forcible evictions being carried out on its orders in the region.
Yesterday, the United Nations Human Rights Council at last expressed its deep concern over human rights violations in Darfur. That modest advance was made possible by the welcome willingness of several African countries to set aside their usual reluctance to talk about their continent’s human rights problems.
But in practical terms, it was only a baby step. Despite an earlier finding by the council’s own investigative team that the Sudanese government “orchestrated” and took part in “large-scale international crimes,” the resolution failed to identify the Sudanese government as the author of these crimes.
Slow progress is also visible in the Arab League, where other leaders reportedly subjected Sudan’s president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, to tough questioning over Darfur at this week’s summit meeting. Their voices are crucial. Khartoum cannot dismiss Arab critics as colonialists or crusaders against Islam. But it will take more than discreet conference diplomacy to end the slaughter.
Once again, there are reports that Sudan will allow a United Nations-African Union force in Darfur. Concerted international action, including a strong protective force, would be the best response. But until now, Sudan has done all it can to delay that. The remaining people of Darfur cannot wait much longer. It is past time for other countries to insist that Khartoum end its obstructionism, which has cost thousands of additional lives. Sigan leyendo.
Y en esas estamos. Los políticos de cháchara, los artistas pancarteros esperando órdenes (que no llegarán) del politburó sito en Ferraz, Moratinos en el caribe huyendo de las víctimas del castrismo y nuestro queridísimo Zapatero en clausura, componiendo textos para sus raperos. Qué mundo tan feliz!
