"R2P" ??

Today's assignment is short and simple:

1. Define "responsibility to protect" (often shortened by Washington insiders as "R2P")

2. Who coined the phrase and the acronym?

3. What political party did they belong to?

4. Explain why the policy implied by this phrase is different from the U.S. policy that got us involved in Vietnam--at the eventual cost of 54,000 killed and countless more severely injured.

As always, googled efforts don't count--we're testing what *you* know, courtesy of your state-controlled media, not your google skills.

Answers tomorrow.
