The problem is that the UN doesn't let anyone use actual military force against the bad guys (because the UN includes so many countries supporting the bad guys).

The UN has tenatively authorized 20,000 intervention troops; the debate is who will go, and who won't. Ask your government to lend it's support.

800,000 people died in Rawanda because the rest of the world sat by and did nothing while they all waited for someone else to do something first.

Christians don't become terrorists when the going gets tough, and in point of fact, the majority of terrorists are middle class and educated and fairly well off, so I don't see how the whole underprivileged = terrorist argument works anyhow.

All people get violent when their rights are trampled on, no matter what their former religious or economic status.

Germany was a wealthy Christian country prior to WWI, but the conditions of the surrenderleft the entire country blamed for the worst war in history (and the populace was thereby made angry and bitter at the rest of the world), and ended up in a terrible economic depression; and we all know how WII turned out.

Any survivors of the genocide are going to be angry at the rest of the world for abandoning them, and all their former wealth will have been stripped from them. They'll be poor, angry at the world, and some of them will want to lash out at the people who turned their back on their cries for help.

And by Goodwin's law, I guess I lose, so I'll shut up now. ;-)
