    because that's what it coming down to ladies and gentlemen. The genocide continues in Darfur, and after the Sudanese are finished wiping out the three tribes of Darfur, they'll move on to new targets within their nation. They'll be aided, supported and protected from international intervention by China and Russia, who have strong financial interests in Sudan. To make matters worse, there are other nations like Uzbekistan, Burma (Mynamar) and Nigeria that are perfect possibilities for future genocide and ethnic warfare. The governments and groups responsible for such atrocities will be supported and protected by China and Russia. We will be throwing hundreds of millions of dollars out of a moral duty to treat the symptoms, but not the disease itself.

    We can either sit and do nothing, or we can make China pay for its heinous disregard for human life. Liberals, the real enemy is not George Bush, its the Chinese government. The real enemy is not Dick Cheney, its the Russian arms industry. Conservatives, the enemy is not John Kerry (he won't win anyway), it is the Chinese government. While Pres. Bush focuses on the War On Islamic Terrorism, China is focusing on how to eclipse us in influence in Asia and the rest of the world, how to usurp our power and prestige and corrupt their world with their insatiable thirst for more power and more resources. France will support them, as will the Russians to an extent. China is the greatest terrorist nation in the world right now, not in a sense of suicide bombings, but of terrorizing its own citizenry and helping other strongmen and regimes to terrorize their people.

    I'm not asking to go to war in a military sense, and believe me, I realize every minute of every day that there are no US troops headed to Darfur any time soon. That's a fantasy that is not anywhere near reality. I'm asking, can we mobilize and use our economic and political power to fight China and its allies policies? Can we help make them accountable? Can we save lives and make America stronger in the process?

    What I am asking is, can we as Americans take steps to fight back with our pocketbook and stop buying products made in China's sweatshops? Can we boycott stores and companies that coddle and ally themselves with the Chinese against our own government to satisfy their thirst for profit? Can we organize divestment campaigns against international petrol and energy companies based in China, France, India and Russia that make profit from mass murder? Can we demand action in Washington to stop coddling the Chinese and their many allies (the Arab facists, the French, the Russians)? Can we take steps to demand China be made to pay for its crimes?

    Please think about it, because China is going to make damn sure no one stops the genocide in Darfur. Then when they have energy and economic interests in another nation like Uzbekistan or Burma where mass murder and ethnic cleansing is happening, they will make sure no one intervenes either.

    Wake up and realize the danger we're in, and the millions of lives that hang in the balance in third world countries because of China's greed and thirst for power.

    This is what happens when you make the economy a global entity before the people are ready for it. You end up with nations that run their economy having the global ability to spread mass death and carnage in the name of economic strength.

    how long have we been pushing for beijing to float the yen instead of peg it below the dollar? They haven't responded yet. Don't look for it anytime soon. China, backed by russia, will be the newest world power/enemy.

    I think we should do something to stop this genocide. It was the whole point of creating the UN. To ensure nothing like the holocaust ever happened again. Sadly the UN has decided it would rather try to assert itself over the US than deal with genocide. very sad.

    I would love to see us do something. There has to be something we can do. Im not sure what we can do at this point though.

    There is a difference between now and then. Republicans are in charge.

    True--and the Dems are waiting for any chance to pounce--I'm afraid when I feel as if we are seeing a lame duck administration until election day.
