The United Nations is finally getting around to trying senior leaders of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime for genocide, The New York Times reports today.  The trial, which is targeting just four defendants, comes 32 years after the Vietnamese military ousted the fanatical agrarian socialist government from power.  The cost of the trial – to date – is $100 million. One hundred million dollars to try two septuagenarians and two octogenarians.

It is estimated that between 1.5 million and 2 million Cambodians were executed during the Khmer Rouge’s four year reign (1975-’79) —  approximately 25% of the country’s population – and four people are on trial. Four.

The U.N. has outdone itself.
