............ Than it isn't genocide. Genocide as defined is the deliberate KILLING of a specific group.. Find a different word to use for it, because it isn't genocide.
Unless there is diliberate killing of people, it is not genocide.
I suggest you read what "genocide" is before making such an idiotic thread.
Why are you guys making me play "devil's advocate" for an idea that I came across on YouTube just this morning?
According to the Wikipedia entry on genocide, even the guy who coined the term, Raphael Lemkin, specifically stated that genocide didn't necessarily entail killing ...
Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.
Freaking ABSURD.... Genocide is the deliberate killing of a group of people based on ethnicity or nation.... To even suggest this kind of crap is some how the same to shit like what happened in Rwanda or Darfur, the Holocaust is morally bankrupt.
One of the video's arguments is that genocide doesn't require mass slaughter. Any elimination of an identifiable race, nationality or ethnicity constitutes genocide, regardless of how it's accomplished.
It looks as though there may be an ant trapped in that amber as well (center, top). The poor little guy's been there for 99 million years, so I guess he deserves a call-out, at least. Perhaps he'll even be the inspiration for a new movie: Jurassic Ant Farm
Astonishingly well-preserved in amber for almost 100 million years, the tail of a tiny dinosaur that was related to Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Velociraptors has feathers, not scales.
But, damn, set aside the paleontological debates about dinosaur appearances and just look at that thing. It appears as though it could have been encased in the amber a couple of months ago, but its age is estimated at 99 million years!
