Posted on 08/18/2011 2:50:13 PM PDT by Thebaddog
WASHINGTON---The Obama White House issued new measures on Friday to prevent genocides and mass atrocities, creating an "Atrocities Prevention Board" in the wake of the failure of the "Never Again" vow taken following the German Holocaust to stop the murders of entire populations.
Obama's directive forming the board states: "Preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States of America." The directive creates an important new tool in this effort, establishing a standing interagency Atrocities Prevention Board with the authority to develop prevention strategies and to ensure that concerns are elevated for senior decision-making so that we are better able to work with our allies and partners to be responsive to early warning signs and prevent potential atrocities. The directive recognizes that preventing mass atrocities is a responsibility that all nations share and that other countries must also be enlisted to respond to particular crises. Therefore, the directive calls for a strategy for engaging key regional allies and partners so that they are prepared to accept greater responsibility for preventing and responding to crimes against humanity."

She’s the ignorant antisemite pig who actually wants a “massive protection force” to invade Israel and protect the paleostinians.
How the Hell Much is this boondoggle going to cost.
I have an Idea Dont anyone Commit an Atrocity or or engage in Genocide, There that didnt cost a Dime
Maybe she's a pre-cog.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The voodoo is she’s in sync with Obama on Israel.
What next, Ice Cream quality board? This Administration truly is grasping at straws in everything they try to do.
Somewhere Jimmah is smiling.
Little miss nazi in her own words.
(I don’t care for her much BTW)
Authorizing hisself to intervene anywhere, anytime as in Libya.
Or does this mean he is forced to prevent hisself from turning our military against the citizens?
She’s made it quite clear in th4e past that her target is Israel.
So now the Idiot in Chief can just roll in where ever with the military because some board of socialist tells him he should. He will be able to just blame them if anyone asks. Swell.
Atrocities Prevention Board
Good luck with that one. LoL.
“authority to develop prevention strategies “
So she and the Board are going to write angry letters to the brutal dictators? Or maybe she plans on talking to them and trying to ‘reason’ with them?
Wonder how many people this is going to employ and cost the tax-payers?
Meanwhile, Repub “leadership” just sit on their collective hands and continue to look the other way.
Christians being slaughtered in Nigeria and Sudan......sound of crickets.
One Muzzie pulled over for speeding in Israel....bombs away!
I wonder what these kind of people think is going to happen to them after the revolution?
If she is really intent on preventing atrocities, just look out for governments that go after ‘the Rich’. Since 1789, any movement that starts out by targeting “the Rich’ ,unless hindered ,has gone on to kill multitudes more.
Any choice words for Samantha Power?
Disregarding the millions of innocent babies MURDERED by Obama supported abortionists. I don't have the numbers handy but I'll bet its a close call between the number of murdered Jews and murdered babies.
She’s married to Cass Sunstein?!?! The one who does the social media/internet obot stuff? So maybe “preventing atrocities” involves finding people who make “threats” on the interent and going pre-emptive on them?
Maybe in coordination with evil white women terrorists? The previous DHS evil terrorist video was about evil white man terrorists.

One more orange jumnp suit please.
The words “Never Again” were spoken by the survivers of
the holocaust to indicate that never again would they
submit to that kind of treatment. It had nothing to do
with the US or it’s allies.
Just more feel good nonsense from the worst administration
in U.S. history.
To tell you the truth I’m not so sure the Libyan war isn’t just one more gunwalker operation.
Seems like I read that some of the NATO supplied weapons have already turned up in the Sinai.
This Anti Semitic witch needs to fly away on here Broomstick back to Protocols of the Elders of Zion Meeting. I would enshrine in my living room the Person who found away to put these two Enemies of our Republic in a Prison Cell.
LOL I thought you might.
There are only the insane admirers of the Emperors new Vineyard Collection Wardrobe left to adore the guy. Look for more really crazy stuff to get ordered by the Whitehouse. They are writing checks with a stolen checkbook, and know it's a matter of time until the cops show up.
53 million abortions since Roe vs Wade. In the US.
First target- Israel
We are facing collapse here at home and the feds are still trying to run the world.
Does everyody feel better about themselves now...???
So the jihadis lobbing a few rockets into Israel will be called a genocide campaign by Israel.
Yes, that is indeed the “logic” used by the moonbats.
How long before they start actively promoting genocide.
Next up - the 0bama Rural Pacification
Who’s the Bamster gonna have participate on this board?
Assad / Syria
Mahmoud A. / Iran
Muslim Brotherhood / Egypt
Hu Jintao /China
Kim Jong-il / N. Korea
Bill Ayres / Weather Underground
okay, I know you're being a wizenheimer but let's get serious. There are real issues with cupcakes in this country and it's time the feds do something about it.
some of them have little tiny bottoms with big fat tops that flop over, even fall off! some of them don't even have icing. Some of the flavors are a darn sin.
So let's stop with the silliness of an atrocity prevention board, soon to be a bureaucracy staffed by thousands, and get real on the cupcake oversight bureau.
and after we get this country back in line with the cupcakes, time to get cracking on the Bureau of Reclining Chairs.
Again, time to get serious here.
This angers and frightens me.
When will Israel be safe? When will Israel be left alone to live peacefully.
Why are there any enemies to Israel? What have they done to incur such maniacal wrath?
Why, why, why?
We need a Parasite prevention board in DC!!!!!!!!
For Israel and for America - pray without ceasing.
Pray for protection from enemies within borders and outside borders. Pray for our friends.
What can be done??
Why are there such enemies of Israel and the US?
I am sickened.
The next genocide, IMO, will be ObamaCare designed to allow Big Brother to decide who lives and who dies. Anyone wonder if Zero’s ghoulish staff dug up Eichmann or Mengele for a position as Health Czars?
Since she supports violence in furtherance of her stated, Leftist agenda and objectives, she needs to define each term:
5) Atrocities Prevention
6) Atrocities Board
7) Prevention Board
This is an administration of totalitarian Double Speak. An Atrocity Prevention Board would do just the opposite.
Some animals are more equal than others.
“Shes made it quite clear in th4e past that her target is Israel.”
Somebody gets it! The only genocide the leftists care about is the one they keep trying to accuse Israel of. Obama’s helping the Muslim Brotherhood surround Israel, and now he’s putting Powers in charge of demonizing Israel when the next Intifada kicks off in earnest.
...Wait a minute!!? Now that I think about it, Israel has a representative form of government like we once had.../cynicism
...No need. Holder-SS, Napolitano-SA, Van Johns-Gestapo...
