    All this while the Sudanese government spends the profits from it's oil industry to buy weapons from China!!!
    An interesting fact: Dafur is roughly the size of France but only has 170km of paved roads, and there is only one doctor per 150,000 people...
    I say put an arms embargo on Sudan and I don't know, pressure the government in spending a % of it's oil profits on Humanitarian aid for the people in Dafur and for the refugees that have fled to Tchad and other neighboring countries...

    I don't think that anyone who has the power to do anything cares enough.
    Old story and no action.
