David Cameron and the 'Syrian Holocaust'
Well, talking specifically about Srebrenica and Rwanda, the problem is that they Western Powers had done too much creating the roots of what led to Srebrenica and Rwanda. With regards to Yugoslavia, the partition of Yugoslavia was promoted by Western Powers as a way to weaken its former adversaries following a very clear political agenda. With regards to Rwanda, Western Powers portioned Africa ignoring tribal and ethnic realities and this lead to widespread massacres. So, it is not the case that Western Powers did too little. Western Powers had done too much to destroy both Yugoslavia and Africa by creating artificial boundaries that best suited their own interests.
What amazes me, once again, that there has been no outcry on behalf of the Jewish Community regarding the use of the word Holocaust about which they claim to have copyrights. It seems that when political statements support the beginning of another military adventure in the Middle East there are no concerns about the use of the word Holocaust.
