At least we took action before a mass genocide occurred this time.

Can someone explain what is wrong about fighting for oil? If somebody was cutting off water or food supplies would you happily starve to death? Some of you liberals are just wet!

Sorry Dogtopia, but we are causing a mass genocide again. What a joke!

At the risk of sounding pedantic, you can't commit "mass" genocide. Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group and implicit in the term is that you kill all of them. You can commit mass murder en route to commiting genocide but once you reach that point, it's just genocide, the mass bit is redundant.

Mass genocide as a term is one of those silly little things that annoys me like mass exodus. Exodus means a migration en masse, any exodus is my definition also a mass exodus, it's another redundant use of the word mass.
