On April 4, South Sudan government militias loyal to the president, Salva Kiir Mayardit, entered the town of Pajok and began killing and raping men, women and children who were not part of the dominant Dinka tribe. Opposition forces led by the former first vice president estimate that more than 200 innocent civilians were killed.
These atrocities - easily considered crimes against humanity - are happening with the full knowledge of international bodies, including the UN, the African Union and the Troika, which includes United States, the UK and Norway.
And while the bleeding-heart Progressives in the West - especially in the United States - continue their campaign to force nations to accept "refugees" from war-torn Middle Eastern countries (i.e. Syria, Iraq, etc.), nary a peep is uttered about the victims of a true genocide in South Sudan.
I am not suggesting that we add the genocide victims of South Sudan into the "refugee relocation program," but I am suggesting that we - the United States and the West as a whole - re-evaluate how we go about aiding the threatened and oppressed in areas like Syria, Iraq and South Sudan.
Relocating people to distant lands where their cultures are foreign is a fool's errand. It doesn't create diversity, it creates confrontation and resentment. We need to craft policies and actions that allows these people to exist in their own lands while conflict resolutions are enacted.
Imagine Russia deciding for us that they were going to "relocate" "refugees" from the US South during the US Civil War...
