The propagandists of imperial war come in many packages, trailing the slime of mass death behind them. The Canadian ex-general Romeo Dallaire proudly bears the “white man’s burden” to punish Rwandans who were on the wrong (not the U.S.) side in their country’s civil war. He cites God as his proof. NPR's Scott Simon deploys a familiar radio voice to condemn Washington’s targets to Hell. Neither cares that they have helped kill six million Congolese.
