What's in a name?

When is genocide only human rights abuse? Who decides? Is this one of the most gutless things you've heard? Naming the atrocities in the Sudan as gemocide would have obliged the UN to act, so I guess it isn't that surprising really.

Am I the only one who finds a moral issue here around the justification of the war in Iraq? Regardless of what you think of the action itself, if spreading peace and democracy were worthwhile there, why aren't our leaders showing the same intent in Africa?
