We Can Do Something About Genocide

Dear Source:
Jay Craft's commentary on this subject is particularly nasty and personal. Each of the three individuals whom she cited and berated for doing too little should be commended for doing something. Human's inhumanity to humans dates back to before recorded history. Here in the U.S. it has been just as ugly and brutal as anywhere else in the world. Just read about our early horrors with King Phillips's war pitting Pilgrims against Indians or the Spanish El Conquistadors against the Aztec not to mention Slavery.
It is true that nothing short of sending troops will change those dreadful circumstances. But every little bit helps not hurts. Everyone should be urged to do more not attacked for doing too little. I will not respond to Jay's comments in kind by offering a personal attack but will ask him/her to do something.
