This exactly typifies the limousine liberal attitude toward everything: symbolic caring.
I'm not happy that Darfur is loaded with criminals and insane people who are holding the normal people hostage, either. However, fasting for 3 weeks isn't going to do jack. When Gandhi went on a hunger strike he doing it to shame the Raj into freeing India from colonial control. He was willing to die to make his point. The Indians knew this, the Brits knew this, and Gandhi knew this. Hunger strikes only work if the striker is willing to go all the way and die and if the authority is capable of being moved or shamed by that death.
"World leaders" don't give a rat's ass about Mia Farrow. Even if they did, I can't imagine that they'd moved by her resolution to go on a 3 week fast. People do that all the time for various reasons. A really rigorous diet isn't exactly a dramatic political gesture.
Okay, so Mia Farrow wants us to do exactly what in Darfur? Send fruit baskets? The only thing that will force the Sudanese to stop the war is just that: Force. Now, here's Mia Farrow on Iraq after the death of her nephew:
As I said before, the most rabid antiwar moonbats are now the most rabid Darfur Hawks, and they'll be the first ones to turn tail and attack us for following their demand that we intervene. How long would it be before Mia Farrow started saying that a war in Sudan "is as incomprehensible as it is unacceptable?" Here's how Mia Farrow will characterize Darfur one year after we've launched operations (although I've not deliberately misspelled anything or mangled my grammar in order to reflect hers):We have just learned that my nephew, Sgt. Jason Dene, died in Iraq yesterday
His mother is my sister, Tisa Farrow. His dad is Terry Deane.
Jason loved and was loved by his parents, his sister, Bridget, his brother, Mitchell, his wife Judi and their three small children. He was my God-son and cherished by all of us in this large family.
He also loved his country and he was proud to serve.
But I don't know what Jason died for. There was never no evidence of weapons of mass destruction. That was a lie. So people speculate -- was it the oil? Or the old grudges of an old man -- Cheney and his Halliburton? Or the unfinished business of the father -- a haunting of the son? Saddam was bad -- but by then a sleeping dog. Not making threats. The world is full of brutal leaders, some are worse than Saddam Hussein.
This war is as incomprehensible as it is unacceptable. In a cloud of confusion, politicians, generals and ordinery people have come to see that it is a disaster. Exit plans are being discussed while Iraqi citizens and young Americans like our Jason are being killed.
My sister is a nurse. For long years has lived in fear of the day when the two uniformed men came to her door to deliver the most terrible news a mother could hear.
I hope I never see George W Bush.
I could not shake his hand. He and his cabal have killed my beautiful nephew. . May God, if there is one, forgive them. I cannot.
Today Tisa and Terry, Bridget and Mitchell, Judi, and the three little ones - have been given a life sentence of grief.
How many more must die before this atrocity is ended?
There was never any evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Sudan. Clinton bombed an aspirin factory, so that was a lie. Would we go for oil? Or the new grudges of saber rattling administration officials -- Obama, Biden and their lackeys? The Sudanese are bad -- but they're a sleeping dog. Not making threats to anyone outside of their borders. The world is full of brutal leaders, some are worse than Omar al-Bashir, and they have ongoing WMD programs. Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmedinejad come to mind. Why take on Sudan when these two men are a threat?So, once again, here are my predictions on US intervention in Darfur:
