Samantha Powerless on Syria genocide シリアの大虐殺に無力なサマンサ米国連大使
Samantha Powerless on Syria genocide
Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, calls herself the “genocide chick,” reflecting her urge to intervene in tragedy. She boasts that she’ll do whatever it takes to nip mass tragedy in the bud. Or she used to. In Syria, the limits on the left’s conflicting impulses are starkly revealed.
Ms. Power calls the three-year-old civil war in Syria “the worst humanitarian crisis we have seen in a generation.” With the recent mushrooming of “Arab Spring” violence across the Middle East, it’s difficult to calculate which disaster deserves the title of “worst.”
