War Crimes in Sudan? Who Cares!

The Huffington Post recently covered a story about George Clooney trying to get the world's attention to a series of war crimes happening in the southern region of Sudan.
""Razing a village is a war crime, and the torching of now at least 26 Nuban villages, plus the systematic destruction of crops and grasslands for cattle, is a crime against humanity, Clooney said. "What we're seeing here is a widespread campaign of village and crop burning. We've seen this in Darfur, and it's happening again in South Kordofan and Blue Nile," he said, referring to two states in southern Sudan that border the separate country of South Sudan."
Sounds pretty bad. 100,000 Nuba have already fled their homes and now live in refugee camps in South Sudan. So my question to you is: how do you think the Huffington Posters who love international law and human rights reacted to this story? Their reaction was pretty much the same: Screw 'em.

The highly moral American left in action.
