This Day in the History of Evil Repeating

On this day in 1994, Hutu extremists in Rwanda began massacring ethnic Tutsis as well as some politically moderate Hutus. Usually the victim was hacked to death with a 5 cent machete. In less than three months, probably 800,000 were so murdered. The 'Never Again' slogan regarding the political murders by Nazis never sounded so hollow. We in the West did absolutely nothing to help the Tutsis and the killing ended only when ethnic Tutsis returned with weapons. Who was the President back then? What was the role of the UN? What is its essential reason for existence? Shame on us, all of us.
