    Compare the incredible response to the terrible Asian tsunami disaster to the disgraceful response to the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Listen to Pres. Bush's brave and eloquent words about the spread of freedom and liberty around the world, then hear the bloodcurdling screams of victims who are shot to death in a village in Darfur by gov't backed militias. Watch the horrific waves wash over the coast and take people with them, then view the wave of hatred as a Sudanese soldier beats an old man to death.

    Why the uneven response? Why can we deploy an aircraft carrier to fly relief missions over SE Asia, but we can't send one boat to Port Sudan?

    When these people are being slaughtered, they are not screaming for the French or the Russians to come save them. They're begging for America, for Pres. Bush to come help. They're defenseless, and they're paying the ultimate price for it, while we screw them so we can have a peace deal in another part of the country. Clinton did that too, he was real good at screwing people over, even America and her interests, in order to get his legacy... which is now in tatters everywhere from N. Korea to N. Ireland to the Middle East. I hope Pres. Bush doesn't make the same mistake.

    Do you think it's racial Nato ? - The world seemed to unite (eventually) against apartheid but black on black violence is ignored. Maybe the fact that Asia was the victim of a natural disaster instead of a man made one says a lot too !!

    I think its Africa fatigue. I would disagree with the actor that its because they're "*******". Its because they're Africans.

    I had hoped Pres. Bush would be different. He seemed to ignore the "haiti fatigue" that had ruined US efforts there for the past 15 years, and some progress is being made there.

    However, with Darfur, the bold leadership is missing. He's fishing for a peace deal in the south, which in essence, is the selling out of a million people in darfur to die while there's peace somewhere else.

    I guess we can wage peace in the face of mother's nature's slaughter, but we won't wage war in the face of a group of murderous cowards.

    They're by and large useless as far as military shit goes.

    A few exceptions with the Brits and Poles... but c'mon now.

    fricking euros are the ones who started this damn mess in the first place.

    well, they could foot a lot of the bill

    we'd just have to do the ass kicking... actually the canadians would be happily onboard for this one as well, both military and financial support

    A little insight:

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm.../20050121/ap_on_re_mi_ea/sudan_building_peace

    Seems like the crux of the matter is once again the peaceful religion of Islam battling the evil forces of Christianity. Interesting that Norway has pledged aid but refuses to give the money until peace breaks out. It seems many othe governments take the same stance, yet none offer to help militarily. Could it be because the nations of the world do not wish to open another front on the war on Islam (which is what it will be declared as soon as the first foriegn soldiers puts a boot on the ground.)?

    I guess people are questioning the logistics and cost of waging war in several places at once.

    yep, but spare no expense in response to the tsunami...

    sickening to me.

    we don't have to invade the fucking place... just hit the bastards hard, make them pay a price for their genocide.
