    A whole new genocide has begun in South Kordofan in Sudan, and the world seems to be content to turn a blind eye once more. Although Africa is not rich in oil, it is still an area in turmoil, much like the Middle East, and deserves attention. African peoples in the Nuba Mountains are being targeted and killed; however, no one seems to be doing anything about it. According to NPR, "approximately 425,000 people have been displaced by conflict," much more than in Syria. What is worse is that this genocide against those living in the Nuba Mountains has happened before. We are supposed to learn from history so that our mistakes are not repeated; however, the world seems to be content to let this mass destruction of a people slide.

    I posted the same thing lol, if there is no oil in South Kordofan no help will be coming expect maybe some people with humanitarian aid. We save the Military help for countries who have oil like Libya and Kuwait.

    Over a million Sudanese have been killed since 2003. Darfur is still in a terrible mess. Regional Instability in Nuba Mt and Blue Nile State (The murdering regime in Khartoum has fought at Nuba Mountains, began to lose heavily and now has resorted to the use of chemical and biological weapons.) brings serious uncertainty to the mix. Malik Aggar is useless and only good for a talking head. The dream vision that started in 1983 for New Sudan has been dead since 2005 and finally put to rest in 2011.

    The regime in Khartoum wants to get rid of everyone that is not Arab Muslim in that country, and nobody is doing a damn thing to stop it. Libya gets cruise missiles, fighter jets and US Drones, the Sudanese Blacks get nothing.

    It is nasty filthy and corrupt. Our politicians should take Pakistan's aid money and help those folks out.

    I agree 110%, our government has a fetish for handing out monies to people that want us dead. Even Hamas and Hezbollah get US moneys too when we give hundreds of millions to the Palestinian and Lebanese governments.

    One of the biggest hurdles, apart from governmental apathy, is that people who would support intervention on the part of the targeted populations are often of a "peacenik" bent. They want to help, but see help as humanitarian aid, stern words for the attackers, and maybe a boycott and a fundraiser.

    The real way of stopping genocidal nutjobs is far simpler, but much messier. Bomb the everloving snot out of them.

    Our government seems to only want to help countries from which it can get something in return, the preferred "something" being oil.
