A very sad situation indeed. Good to see that Kristof is a bit less harsh on the U.S. in this op-ed, his last one suggested the blame lay with America which was simply absurd and unfair. In this op-ed Kristof notes that Europe, especially France (imagine that), along with China are cool if not hostile to the idea of interfering with the internal affairs of another nation. (China is always opposed to U.N. intervention with internal affairs of any nation as they don't want anyone meddling in their affairs).

America, on the other hand, has pushed for sanctions. They are being held back by the international community. This is just another situation that shows the U.N. is just for academic show and is completely irrelevant when it comes to world events that actually matter. If the U.N. cannot prevent (or at least sanction) genocide, what can they do?
