Samantha Power Quits

I thank God Samantha Power, resigned with apologies and regrets for her terrible utterances against Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Samantha Power is brilliant without doubt. But you cannot blame Bill Clinton for the Rwandan Genocide as you cannot blame President George W. Bush for the the genocide in Darfur happening before our very eyes.

I am 100% Black African who is committed to the efforts to end the Darfur Crisis and communicated with the former UN Special Envoy to Sudan, Jan Pronk and my own insider in Darfur on how to stop the massacre of innocent people in Darfur. But the Sudanese government and the rebels have continued to pour fuel in the fire of the conflict in Darfur and they are both guilty of the genocide.

The African Union and the UN are guiltier than the former President Bill Clinton on the Rwandan Genocide. I do not think there is anything Bill Clinton would have done to stop the genocide in the hellish circumstances if the UN failed to do so.

America cannot be over burdened with the existential crises on earth.
America is not the burden bearer of the world.
There are more burdens in America than in Sudan.

Despotic African rulers and the rebels are corrupt and wicked and when they fight over power, they do not care to slaughter millions of their peoples.
America is blameless.

I was a refugee child during one of the worst civil wars in Africa and over 1 million people died, including my elder sister and two younger brothers, because of the foolishness of the rebels and the wickedness of the government forces.

Is America responsible for the horrors of Zimbabwe under the monstrous rule of Robert Mugabe?

Samantha Power can win the Pulitzer Prize as my compatriot Dele Olojede won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for his "fresh haunting look at Rwanda a decade after rape and genocidal slaughter had ravaged the Tutsi tribe”, but there is no moral justification for her petty disdain, malice and prejudice against the Clintons. She has confirmed my hypothesis that most of those working for Barack Obama's presidential campaign have old grudges and scores to settle with the Clintons.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.... The chain reaction of evil--hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation."

~ Martin Luther King, Jr., "Strength To Love", 1963.
