what wold we do without "Europeans"

From an article on mass graves being excavated in Iraq:

...Mr Kehoe investigated mass graves in the Balkans for five years but those burials mainly involved men of fighting age and the Iraqi finds were quite different, he said.

"I've been doing grave sites for a long time, but I've never seen anything like this, women and children executed for no apparent reason," he said.

Mr Kehoe said that work to uncover graves around Iraq, where about 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam Hussein's regime, was slow as experienced European investigators were not taking part.

The Europeans, he said, were staying away as the evidence might be used eventually to put Saddam Hussein to death...

For "Europeans," doing anything at all to prevent hundreds of thousands of Iraqis from being slaughtered would have been just too too tiresome, too tacky, and probably against "International Law." But saving Saddam's life...Ahh, there's a project "Europe" can get behind. What a splendid opportunity to show the world that morality, and fighting evil, are outdated concepts.

You can expect our domestic lefties to follow suit. The mass graves will continue to be ignored, while "bishops" will lead candle-light vigils to protest the execution of Saddam.
