Comments: Darfur

The moratorium would solve the Taiwan-China problem, too, though it might complicate the Korean drive for unity...

I know. But a line has to be drawn.

Me, I think I was incredibly generous in expanding the time-frame to allow for someone other than the neocons to be at fault for some things. ;)

Actually, I think fifty years is a pretty good line: it's in living memory for most senior members of society, but for most people is in the "never thought about it" recent past that only comes up if someone brings it up....

"Slaves escaped from the USofA, fled to Haiti, and started an independent nation. Yes. Slaves ran away and got away with it. Get over it and stop meddling in Haiti's affairs. Countries have the right to select their own governments. They even have the right to elect, and then re-elect really shitty Administrations."

I wholly agree with your sentiment but slaves in the U.S. didn't escape to Haiti and began their own country. The slaves in Haiti, where the slavery system was more brutal than in the U.S., rose up and overthrew their masters.
