I know now that humankind marks certain people for death. Against them there shuts a door.

Norm Geras quoting Chicago's Saul Bellow on Eric Reeves assesment of Darfur today,
The final moment of diplomatic truth for Darfur has at last arrived. All evidence suggests that the international community is prepared to acquiesce before the military onslaught Khartoum's National Islamic Front is preparing for North Darfur...
If under these circumstances the international community is unwilling even to threaten non-consensual intervention to protect civilians and humanitarians in Darfur, then Khartoum may rightly, in full throat, exult in its savage triumph.
