Left wordless

Avedon Carol sums up exactly why I think Sudan isn't being discussed extensively:

Read the rest of that letter, and read Stupid on how nobody's talking about Sudan. Actually, I'm not talking about Sudan, either. The reason I'm not talking about Sudan is that every time someone mentions Sudan I go, "Oh, God," and then I think about Afghanistan and Iraq and think how Bush and Wolfowitz and the gang have pretty much made The Most Powerful Nation in the World helpless to do anything anywhere because we are stuck in, y'know, this qWagmire and sucked our troops dry to the point where we are now re-drafting people in their 60s who have already been honorably discharged. We have no moral authority and we have no troops to send anywhere else and oh god oh god oh god. So I don't talk about it.
 
Exactly.  The events in Sudan are horrifying and the Bush administration is downright evil for crippling us so we can't do anything about it.  There's nothing else to say.  That no one is speaking much about it speaks volumes about how unified opinion is on it. 
Still, I have to wonder.  Without constant discourse about Sudan, how can we ever expect to shame people into seeing the truth about how bad things have gotten?  If it can help get things done, should journalists and opinion makers keep talking, even if all they are doing is repeating the same point, that this is horrible and Bush is horrible, over and over and over again?

Wait, there's another reason: Because if Bush did do something, he'd screw it up even worse than it already is.

Oh, God!

Hi Amanda, I found your blog via Alas, A Blog. Really good stuff.

I feel similarly about Sudan. A professor I had in college personally experienced the Rwanda genocide when his entire family was massacred, after he'd spent months trying to get them out. I haven't been able to bear reading about Sudan because what I have heard sounds like the same kind of stuff as Rwanda.

People aren't talking about Sudan because its Africa and because they lack the heart to want to do anything about it. It's not because of anything George Bush has done. I've been seeing documentaries for three years now about the "Lost Boys" of Sudan and no one has bothered to do anything about what's going on over there. It's just easier to blame a lack of interest on Bush than to actually examine whether there isn't some sort of prejudice that we hold. Allow me to go further, though. The truth is that we, as Americans, really don't like committing troops to help people. We didn't want to be in Somalia and got out as soon as possible the moment something went wrong. As a result of that, we allowed the Rwandan genocide to happen. When we went into Kosovo, most Americans were, once again, against it. It's so easy to blame Bush or Republicans, but the failure to help the people of the world when we can rests on our shoulders because we never want to do it. I think it's especially easy to ignore these things when they're happening to Africans.
