  • When the good guys are also bad guys | Jina Moore
    they do at all to this in two ways to deny or minimize the rebel abuses because we backed them or to eschew humanitarian intervention later because these guys committed abuses and embarrassed us We perfected the first strategy in Latin America in the 1980s I m not sure how powerful the second response will actually be when resources we want are at stake but I d bet it gains some rhetorical power at least I don t think either approach is useful The first approach I find so objectionable that I can t imagine it meriting a discussion It s the second one that concerns me Can we find a way both in our political discourse and in our policy making to weigh the likelihood that the guys we back will commit war crimes or other abuses without foreclosing the conversation If we can can we do the next thing we need to do put resources and political will behind the idea that those abuses shouldn t occur Can we build a policy that normatively rejects atrocities even as it recognizes pragmatically that these abuses may happen and works out the consequences of a reality we all wish weren t and agree shouldn t be the case I raise this question because my hunch is that rebel abuses in Libya will become the shorthand for anti intervention arguments in the future My optimism about the future of R2P style intervention died in Libya long before this but I do think this could be a consequence I m not making claims about knowing the Libyan situation particularly well I m a close reader of news but that s it and we all have a thousand reasons to doubt the variations on fact and frame that are presented to us in that space every day But I think there s a big question here about transitional moments Bluntly but earnestly it s this What did we really think was going to happen in the meantime And what plans did we make Geoffrey York the Globe Mail s Africa correspondent responded to my 280 character version of the first question by reminding The expectation of atrocities doesn t mean we should be silent when they happen Can t use the it s war excuse No question he s absolutely right But it s something else that troubles me Many of us know and agree on what should and shouldn t happen and I think anyone reading this blog probably agrees with York that we shouldn t be silent when those norms are violated But what should we do and what can we do when what shouldn t happen does happen There s all kinds of necessary and important post hoc accountability mechanisms yes But what happens before that I m not advocating leniency here What I am saying though is that I m worried about a conversation on intervention that presumes as the reflex on Libyan rebel crimes suggests we may presume

  • In Sudan, a return to ethnic cleansing? | Jina Moore
    South Kordofan and indeed Blue Nile state too civilianised or incorporated into the Sudan Armed Forces SAF No government in the world including the USA s would tolerate a non domestic state militia roaming freely around parts of a country let alone one from a soon to be new neighbour Indeed the Assessment and Evaluation Commission AEC a watchdog body staffed by international stakeholders of the CPA has confirmed repeatedly that SPLA has continued dragging its feet in redeploying to the 1 1 56 border while SAF has completed it Yet be clear nobody including the NCP tried to remove SPLA soldiers in S K or people who had sided read voted for with the opposition during the recent elections as Mr Anonymous American aid workers claims ridiculously all whilst offering no proof at all i e opinion dressed up as fact They are northerners after all Instead the violence in S K and its sad impact on ordinary civilians there are the north Sudan residue of the SPLM intended consequences of separation of southern Sudan They the GOSS leadership in Juba could clearly send the right message to their fighters like Al Hilu in South Kordofan i e De commission immediately We don t want to jeopardise independence of South Sudan and want peaceful relations between us and the north But they haven t Al Hilu s recent quote carried in the NYT about his willingness to accept a ceasefire I have to consult with SPLM Chairman Salva Kirr President of GOSS gave that game away somewhat Put starkly the recent violence in S K is the corollary of political posturing in extremis by GOSS an attempt if you like to up the ante to the max in the ongoing post secession negotiations with the NCP In any case the nub of the Hilluites s grievance lies not with Haroun President Al Bashir or anybody else in the NCP It lies with the SPLM leadership in Juba instead The SPLM in South Kordofan and the rest of non south Sudan has been left as a body without a head following the southern referendum southern Sudanese members of the SPLM performed a right angled turn away from the New Sudan philosophy of the late Dr John Garang in favour of the hasty rush to separation of South Sudan leaving Abdul Aziz Al Hilu and other leading lights of its northern wing rudderless demoralised and fearful for their own political survival going forward That betrayal no question is what rankles most with Abdul Aziz Hilu and his Hiluites in the Nuba Mountains Southern Sudanese evidently didn t care enough about the Nuba or the Ingesanna of Blue Nile State in spite of their many sacrifices that made the very option of a self determination referendum for southern Sudan possible see SPLM Blue Nile Governor Malik Agar s recent description in the NYT of a cornered cat as illustrative A kitten cast out from the rest of its litter would be a more appropriate analogy of the crisis of direction facing the SPLM s Northern sector ahead of the south s separation So there you have it Ms Moore the contextualisation for SAF s actions in S K that Mr Anonymous Bec Hamilton and their ilk have kept concealed on purpose No cos I m black that s why they are after me No extermination ethnic cleansing or door to door executions of completely innocent and defenseless civilians often by throat cutting by special internal security forces that s all just pap and urban myths by Hiluite activists and their acolytes amongst the Nuba disapora to muddy the waters Moreover isn t it odd how for example when the US tries rightly to flush out violent Islamist extremists from the Af Pak border nobody accuses Washington of trying to e g exterminate or ethnically cleanse the area of ALL Pashtuns so where s the difference with SAF in S K Ms Moore Simple There isn t one That s the plain vanilla truth in spite of the wholly predictable effort of Mr Anonymous and Ms Hamilton to try to whitewash it and create something else Like most ordinary Sudanese I don t want to see another single drop of blood of my countrymen and women spilt by war and wasted Bec Hamilton John Prendergast other leading lights of the Sudan journo activist movement and probably Mr Anonymous himself may claim that they don t either too but that s clearly not true For example Mr Prendergast s suggestion for ending the violence in S K Ramp up arms sales to GOSS to deter attacks by SAF yep that s right the same GOSS whose army the SPLA has been going wild really wild on women children and other ordinary civilians in its attempts facile so far to crush the seven intra southern armed rebellions against GOSS s rule see these two AP reports for further detail http www google com hostednews ap article ALeqM5iGjG9whhCv3fK2pUQK5m9HkvOFig docId 8760bf3cf28f4230838f7a530d928a4e http news yahoo com s ap 20110311 ap on re af af southern sudan un troops 2 Horrific aren t they Ms Hamilton s totally underwhelming response see her Twitter page http twitter com bechamilton to such madness by the SPLA on civilians in south Sudan Troubling Getting a zit on your nose on prom night that s troubling not women children and old people being slaughtered like chickens I doubt strongly too that said Mr Anonymous jumped on the blower or typed a furious missive to his buddy Ms Hamilton about those events two of many pulling down the soon to be Republic of South Sudan ROSS or the circus tricks of Al Hilu in the run up to during and following the completion of elections why no in for a dollar in for a dime Put starkly it looks like I and countless other ordinary Sudanese at home or abroad are troubled by ANY violence in Sudan whereas Ms Hamilton JP and Mr Anonymous

  • Today in “diplomats who didn’t answer the question” | Jina Moore
    we are worried about any development that could undermine peace and democracy and we think it is important that there be clear and unified statements and actions by the international community that reinforce respect for the results of the elections and reinforce our already considerable commitment of effort and resources to the maintenance of peace and security in Côte d Ivoire That certainly is the interest of the United States and many many other delegations expressed the same interest Thank you very much I get the whole dodge accountable answers game But is it so out of line to ask that Ambassador Rice answer the very clear question posed by a reporter Will this situation a dispute over the electoral results in the Ivory Coast and the relative inaction about them spark renewed violence Isn t that kind of exactly the question on everyone s mind right now It s great that we are worried about any development that could undermine peace but wasn t the point this guy or gal made whether this particular development might in fact undermine peace Probably answering that question could anger some people on the ground maybe it would complicate some of the conversations with the many many delegations who are awaiting instructions see the link But honestly at some point isn t it just irresponsible not to answer the question Or maybe I m just a journalist Tags cote d ivoire ivory coast Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle
