America goes to war over resources.

We go to war over threat of terrorism.

But we don't go to war in defense of people being deliberately targeted for extermination.

In fact, when it comes to genocide, we're more likely to parse words wondering which one to use than to actually take action.

A workshop at UMD this weekend aims to change that.
