Failed State femme extroidinaire' Dr Susan Rice has sexy expertise with Africa since way back in the Clintonian era as the Dep State Sec for African Affairs (1997-2001); Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for African Affairs, the National Security Council, the White House (1995-1997); and Director for International Organizations and Peacekeeping, National Security Council (1993-1995).
Dr Rice (no relation) has done substantial work on the Gap (and not the one at the Mall either) that "Weak States", by their very existence, tend to create - and true to their unfree, nigh unhinged nature - these illegit regimes also excell at projecting misery onto their neighbors.
A fangirl of the despot killing "R2P", Dr Rice is not too particularly concerned with how illegit regimes are dispatched into history's recycle bin. Her main desires are essentially how to rebuild wrecked little rat's nests after Great Satan's forced imposition of strangling sanctions or 30 year in the future military takes out the trash (either way is fine).
Like the naughty hottie down the street who never gets caught, Dr Rice deploys fashionable smokescreens like "UN", "International Community" and lays off words that drives Great Satan Envy like "democracy" to fly under the radar like a stealth bomber.
Since Africom needs a hood to hang in - why not present them with the largest hood in all of Africa?
"Well, if the Sudanese government maintains its refusal of a robust U.N.
force, then the international community should say to the Sudanese: You have a very short period of time, a week, perhaps two weeks at most, to accept this U.N. force unconditionally or face the threat of the use of military force."
Whoa! Talk about a policy of constant confrontation and selective intervention!
Wouldn't such a robust preponderance of American Power, sweetly tricked out in the little black dress of internat'l legitimacy fire up world opinion against Great Satan? The m"Hammedist world might cry out against regime killing pressure killing a sharia law loving preacher's paradise.
Yeah. They might.
"If we've come to the point where the United States and the rest of the international community is going to be intimidated by a relatively weak African or other government around the world with the threat of the use of al-Qaida, then we've lost our way, we've lost the war on terrorism, and we've lost our moral compass, if we're not prepared to stand up to protect civilians from genocide."
This is significant.
Despite all the "Joy joy joy joy down in my heart" that the world seems to be reveling in at the moment of Great Satan's recent electile climax, America doesn't really give a flip if intolerant, illegit, gendercidal regimes have their feelings hurt.
