The United States should have intervened, and without a doubt would have been able to stop the genocide. The United States military had the power to be in country and neutralize the threat of the untrained, and not well armed people who were participating in the genocide. Even if we did not really see it coming, 100 days was an incredible amount of time to realize that something needed to be done (UNMICT, n.d.). The United States could have stopped the genocide and had troops in place for security. Why didn’t we? Is it because there was no economic reason too? It’s hard to believe, especially after all we have done in the Middle East that we did not do something. Not only could we have helped, but by our holding back, it most likely
Should the U.S. intervene to prevent or end violations of human rights (including genocide) in foreign countries when these violations do not directly affect other American interests?
Various schools of thought exist as to why genocide continues at this deplorable rate and what must be done in order to uphold our promise.

As such, the great moral responsibility to protect innocent life must compel the United States to act when it can to do to. However, justified moral outrage for the horrors of genocide must be tempered with a prudent strategy that ensures that the United States neither oversteps its bounds nor commits itself to an ineffective, unduly risky campaign. By using nonviolent tools of statecraft, the U.S. can seek to prevent genocide without having to commit troops. By following strict standards of behavior for implementing a military intervention, the U.S. can minimize risk to itself in addition to saving lives. By staying engaged in the post-conflict nation, the U.S. can foster stability and ensure that the lives saved stay saved. Perhaps, instead of Americans joining “the ranks of the unreasonable”, the “unreasonable” can offer reason to compliment their

Presentation After 2003, Darfur area of western Sudan has been the spot of repulsive viciousness, passing, and disengagement; what the United States has called "genocide." Despite what is as of now the world's biggest easing operation, exertions to cool the clash and support the more or less five million individuals from misery progressing inadequacy have transformed valuable few results. With no end as far as anyone can tell for the perplexity, For as long as years, Sudanese area of Darfur has been the scene of a grisly clash that has prompted the passing of many individuals and the uprooting of more than two million of its tenants. The United Nations has portrayed it as "the world's most exceedingly bad compassionate emergency" and the United States government called it "genocide.
Have you ever asked yourself, “what IS genocide?” genocide is when a specific group of people is being targeted because of their race, religion, or political party. You may have heard about World War II or the Holocaust, the holocaust is the best known genocide in the world. This involved the persecution of all, and in this particular genocide, Hitler, the Nazi leader, killed over 6 million Jews!
