Diplomacy as an Excuse for Inaction

Kudos to The New Republic for keeping on the Darfur issue. If only words mattered more. In the editorial gracing the forthcoming issue, TNR hammers home a point that is not so much new as it is undeniably true.

Money quote: The question now before the West, and Americans in particular, is simple: When will we have had enough of this charade? Will we wait until 600,000 die? 800,000? One million? Is there a magic number at which our moral outrage will suddenly trump our deference to Sudanese sovereignty?

I have nothing to add.
