Ghosts of Rwanda

I just watched the PBS Frontline's horrifying report on the Rwandan genocide.
Watch this documentary and you will never believe that non-intervention could be a legitimate policy in foreign affairs.
Here's the link and these are the words on the PBS web page:
"How could it happen that America and the West stood aside and did nothing to stop the slaughter of 800,000 human beings over 100 days? On the 10th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the story of those who participated in the world's failure to act, those few who stood up and tried to save lives, and all who are still deeply haunted by what they did."

Humanitarian Intervention is justified if the "interventor" does not persue the act for any economic or political gain and does not anticipate a payback or favour. But then again who would do that? no gain? Maybe sometimes you are ready to payback the cost of intervention. We should perhaps pose the question to "the dead" and to the "after the fact dying".
