    Indeed, VERY sad.

    I certainly don't know what the answer is.

    Maybe we should ask the liberals, they always seem quick to jump on anyone, that might.:cof:

    Why the Darfur "conflict" is being ignored? By whom?

    The UN has waffled on this for over three years, it's pathetic that the organization won't call the genocide genocide. That resolution passed late August to deploy UN peace-keeping troops has the devastating condition "only with the approval of the Sudanese government", the real backers of janjaweeds.

    But Sudan doesn't want the UN there, they only want the useless AU, who are way over their heads with this.

    The US wants the UN to handle it, NATO forces are also a viable option.

    Does it really matter what the Sundanese Gov't wants? We, as Americans, need to do something about this. This is 10 times worse then Iraq.

    Black Christians being killed by Black Muslims, interesting that this never appears in the articles?

    I know about the geo-political issues, Kathy, but this is a humanitarian issue also.

    It's becoming more and more apparent that the Sudanese government wants to continue the ethnic cleansing while the world contnues to ignore it.

    Diplomacy's been a dismal failure so far, the new economic sanctions passed by US Congress will take awhile to kick in. The west Sudan is remote, "no-fly" zones would be a logistics nightmare. US troops or NATO troops could help...

    I understand the 'humanitarian' part, but no US troops without other nations. I agree, could be NATO or UN, but some others. We have no interests there, other than humanitarian, which we would not be thanked for. Now for me, I've given $$$ for those collecting for victims. Seperate out the people from the government.
