Just can't muster the cynicism

Oh, and by the way, would we even be looking at the Sudan if not for the Christians in the south? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that we're sticking our noses into something where we might not profit, but are doing it just to save lives. I just want to be clear on the fact that we are entering this fight in large part due to religion.

That's right, there must be a darker reason - where does Halliburton stand on this? Has the Pipeline been planned yet?

Try this on for size, instead. The Sudan is 70% Muslim, 5% Christian and the rest are some form of bugfuck tribalism/paganism. The CIA World factbook further goes on to remind us that The Sudan is 52% black, 39% Arab, 6% Beja (?) and the rest is "other". Finally the Factbook tells us "note: program of "Arabization" in process"

That sounds scary.

It couldn't just be that the guy is honestly interested in putting an end to genocide before it starts in earnest ala Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, et al. And that as both a Christian man and the Leader of the Freaking Free World he has a duty to do something about it while the Eurocrats and UN freeloaders debate whether the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide creates a legal obligation to act overtly or through a series of non-binding resolutions that can be more fully addressed in our fall meeting in Barbados . . .

I'll not sully my hands with somebody who is convinced that there must be a darker reason when Mr. Occam and his razor are standing by with the best answer.
Think of this as the treehouse and think of the 'rents as Marge down below trying to make us eat our Focusyn.
