Our Friends The Sudanese

Good piece in today’s Opinion Journal by Michael Rubin on why it’s a mistake to “engage” with regimes that oppress their people. We need to ask why Mr. Powell wants to have a dialogue with one of the most notorious slave traders in the modern world. Sudan would appear to need the Aghanistan treatment–excise the cancer surgically, cauterize the wound, apply antibiotics in the form of intelligent aid. As in Afghanistan, their people will thank us.
