Trucking Instead of Protecting

“In a show of pragmatism seemingly incompatible with their stated mandate, international forces in CAR have been providing protection to convoys of Muslims trying to leave towns and villages in fear of certain death, instead of stopping attacks against them.

While this protection is clearly preferable to allowing these people to be killed, the convoys are a clear symbol of the international community’s failure to protect at-risk groups of civilians, and could be seen as directly facilitating the “cleansing” of areas where Muslim communities have lived for generations.”
