While the coalition states are prepared to impose democracy on Iraq, they are reluctant to intervene in Darfur, the scene of one of the gravest crimes against humanity, committed by the Sudanese government and its armed militia. We commemorate the Holocaust and pay homage to Western democracy, yet seem to regard African life as a mere appendix to our civilised society. Can we abandon our post-Holocaust vow "never again" so easily?
