How Rwanda, like Bosnia, has yet to produce a generation of founding fathers, leaders willing to give peace a higher priority than revenge; How absence of such leaders makes the role of the United States and its allies all the more murky; Organized world community that should do its best to feed the hungry, heal the sick and save the orphans.
