What is it?
gen·o·cide (jěn'ə-sīd')
n. The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.
Why does it happen?
It is by belief that genocide is the only way to purify or cleanse a nation of its impurities and corruption. Thus, genocide is also know as 'social cleansing.'

SOURCE OF INFORMATION: www.dictionary.com-www.britannica.com (definition)
www.historyplace.com-www.bbc.co.uk-www.savedarfur.org-and other
CREDIBLE/VALID sources (statistics)
*No, I do not use Wikipedia, that site is bogus.

Okay, so I think the most 'popular' genocide was the Nazi Holocaust during Hitler's time, where his goal was to exterminate as much Jewish people as he can.
Total death toll= 6,000,000 deaths
There are other genocides that has happened and is happening:
# Bosnia-Herzegovina: 1992-1995 - 200,000 Deaths
# Rwanda: 1994 - 800,000 Deaths
# Pol Pot in Cambodia: 1975-1979 - 2,000,000 Deaths
# Rape of Nanking: 1937-1938 - 300,000 Deaths
# Stalin's Forced Famine: 1932-1933 - 7,000,000 Deaths
# Armenians in Turkey: 1915-1918 - 1,500,000 Deaths
# Darfur (by the hands of their own government): 2003-present time - 400,000 and counting
>>There are speculations that what is happening in Iraq (not just because of the 'War on Terror)and Palestine is considered as genocides.

So, what is your view about it? Any opinions are welcome.

... is there really any other view than that it's an inhumane display of what influence over others can induce?

It would have been better if you created this thread earlier, so that the other two Darfur threads could be moved here. Anyways, genocide = horribly inhumane. Nothing else I can add.

And by the way, just being curious, did you get this from Wikipedia?

I bet there are a lot of other views, the world is big. Some might see it as the way you see it. Some see it as a sacred thing. and some even see it as the ONLY way to save one's nation.

Which one the definition or the statistic?
I got the definition through dictionary.com and the reason in Britannica.
The statistics, from historyplace.com and other credible articles.
I don't use wikipedia, it's not a site anyone should trust. Now that you mentioned it, I should have done this first before...

Genocide is another example of a country having to much or no control over there government.as long as there different races and religions there going to be Hitler type ppl whether you like it or not.ppl do genocide cause they either belive there the true race or they just hate another.I say if the world just cant come together and accept the fact everyone is diffrent then one day someone just might lunch a nuke and destroy everybody just cause they didnt like a race or religion.

That's true, most of the leaders who commits genocide have a mini-Hitler in them. But the genocide in Darfur that is happening NOW, it's not really proving who is the superior race, since the ones that the militia is eradicating are their fellow Sudanese.
