President Obama pledged today to do whatever he can to prevent future holocausts, from speaking out against human rights abuses to stopping Iran from obtaining the means to make nuclear weapons.
“Preventing genocide is an achievable goal,” Obama said during remarks today at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. [...]
Repeating the phrase “never again,” Obama spoke not only in terms of the Holocaust against Jews in World War II, but of modern mass killings in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur
“Remembrance without resolve is a hollow gesture,” Obama said. He later added: “We are haunted by the atrocities we did not atop.”
Obama also talked about other things his administration is already doing to prevent genocide, including the military intervention in Libya, creation of the new state of South Sudan, increased diplomatic pressure on Syria, and the ongoing manhunt of African warlord Joseph Kony.
“National sovereignty is never a license to slaughter your people,” Obama said.
