Urbin Report

Tuesday, June 15, 2004

I was listening to NPR's talk show "On Point" on the way home tonight. They were discussing the ongoing genocide in Sudan (which is currently on the UN Human Rights commission, go figure).

I found it interesting that this left wing talk radio show was not only saying that UN wasn't doing a thing about it, but was questioning the ability of the UN to actually do anything about it.

One of the callers grew up in Africa and survived a similar situation as a child in the 70's. He was very clear in his opinion that Kofi Annan wasn't going to do a damn thing based on his power base in Africa.
