Mia Farrow Says 'Seeds of Genocide' in Central Africa
2013-11-15
[An Nahar] American actress and celebrity campaigner Mia Farrow urged the international community on Thursday to take urgent action to stem violence in the Central African Republic.
And who knows more about Central Africa than Mia Farrow?
Bono?
"CAR is not a forgotten crisis. The population is simply completely abandoned," said Farrow, who is a goodwill ambassador for the UN children's agency UNICEF.

Farrow, 68, recently back from a visit to the conflict-ravaged nation, told news hounds the "seeds of genocide" had been sown there and the world had a moral duty to take a stand.

The Central African Republic has been plagued by instability since a coup by Seleka, a coalition of rebel groups which overthrew longtime president Francois Bozize in March.

Seleka leader, Michel Djotodia, named himself president but agreed to hold elections next year.

#12  So just what do you want us to do, Mia? When you have a totally lawless situation, basically you have to bring in military force to bring some semblance of control to the country.

In other words, you have taken over the problem and you own it now, meaning you are the foster parent of this messed up and disfunctional country.

Other people can look at your country and say they have to take over because of some real or imagined situation.

So what is your call, and who do you want to run and pay for this operation?

#11  If she thinks it's bad now - just wait until the U.N. 'Nookie for Food' program gets rolling.

They'll have all the problems they have now as well as what the UN brings in.

#7  Seeds? A fully harvested crop!
Considering how many times "genocide" has happened in...under-resourced, overpopulated, malnourished, combative culture confrontational regions of exploitable yet apathetic, unsustainable economies.

The "Curse of Nations", soon coming to a theatre near you!

#6  ...Ms. Farrow does not understand that the seeds of genocide are pretty much evenly distributed about the marble. The differences are whether-or-not the subject populaces allow them to take root...

#4   the "seeds of genocide" had been sown there and the world had a moral duty to take a stand

Considering how many times "genocide" has happened in Central Africa, this should have been placed under "Short Attention Span Theater," though I doubt certain readers would've recognized or appreciated the snark.
