An editorial is presented arguing that the only acceptable response to the genocide in Darfur is U.S.-led military intervention. The 1990s were a decade of genocides, yet after Rwanda, Bosnia and Kosovo, political leaders all proclaimed "never again." The article notes that thus far, U.S. response has been to palm the problem off on other countries, and argues that the U.S. should not allow their failures in Iraq to keep them from embracing a moral foreign policy.
