Separatism of the Day
I just searched Google News for "Tibet" and "Darfur": 90,444 results for Tibet and 17,442 for Darfur. Tibet is apparently now the most powerful red herring of the PMC "human rights" set. Before them it was Kosovo. Kosovo's Google News results are 13,616 today, though, gaining on Darfur. That unfinished business may come back into fashion if Russia acts up. The West loves separatism (except separatists of their own nations or their client states): "Small Is Beautiful" as far as it is concerned.
