Watching Pompeo speech to Munich Security Conference… It's not only obnoxious, but stupid. If your allies are all telling you, "We don't trust you," it's not a very good answer to say, "You're wrong, you do trust me."
Allies: "We don't trust you because you are an overbearing self-infatuated bully."

Pompeo: "Shut up you ingrates and do what I tell you."
Pompeo builds to a conclusion in which he tells a would-be emotional story about visiting wounded Ukrainian soldiers in hospital. Perhaps some of them were wounded during the period when he was party to a plot to withhold military aid from Ukraine? #MunichSecurityConference

1) Raphael Lemkin, known as the father of the Genocide Convention, rejected the terms "Barbarity", "Mass murder", "Denationalization", "Germanization", "Magyarization" and many others to depict Hitler's attempt to annihilate the Jewish population.
2) He wanted a word that would - according to @AmbPower44 in her book "A Problem from Hell" - "connote a practice so horrid and so irreparable that the very utterance of the word would galvanize all who heard it". To Lemkin words mattered. So he came up with the word "Genocide".
