RED ALERT! EU moves past “grave concern” mode - New Europe News: #1 The European News Source: "More worries for dictators, despots, totalitarians and just-plain bad people who run countries like Sudan, where hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and two million more forced into refugee status: the European Union is upgrading its level of concern over genocide, mass murder, and repression of human rights.
Until now, the EU thought it was enough to fire off a flurry of press releases, killing more trees then people have died in Darfur, to express its worry.
But being ignored for four years has so irritated the EU that its previous strategy of sending off a letter, then another letter and another letter, expressing “concern,” and then “deep concern” and then “grave concern,” will be replaced with a new system expressing faux grief. "
They make a number of very good points in this piece and the sarcasm is right on target. On the negative side they failed to give credit to the Three Stooges for the Dewey Cheatum and Howe* reference and in re: levels of concern it seems like minty fresh concern should have been mentioned. Maybe that's just me.
