Biden Calls For War on Muslims

Yesterday, Joseph Biden, called for US Forces to be sent into the Darfur region in order to stop the bloodshed and violence. He labeled his idea for military intervention a ‘moral imperative’ which he would use to ‘stop the bleeding’. Whatever that means.

DelawareOnline) Delaware's Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a Democratic presidential candidate, called Wednesday for the use of military force to end the suffering in Darfur.

"I would use American force now," Biden said at a hearing before his committee. "I think it's time to put force on the table and use it... Let's stop the bleeding," Biden said. "I think it's a moral imperative."

Obviously, I agree that the only way to curb the genocide in Darfur is by military intervention but I think Biden’s moral imperative gauge is a little off. Because if it’s a moral imperative to use our military to stop the genocide in Darfur, then that must mean it was a moral imperative to stop the genocide in Iraq under Saddam. It would also mean that we stay in Iraq until we can disengage without leaving a bloody sectarian war. Unless, of course, Biden’s morality is weighted to expedite his political aspirations.

And yeah, I’m sure Biden is for the troop incursion now but if Al Qaeda forces move in and start killing people he’ll pretend as if he never wanted to send them in, or that he was somehow tricked by the magical Bush mind-bullets.
