The humanitarian situation in Darfur continues to deteriorate in the wake of Sudan's decision to expel major foreign aid organizations from the country. A majority of UN Council members sharply criticized Khartoum for refusing to reverse its edict.

Whie the UN of Nothing sits with all their chatter, millions of women and children are dying. I will say this again, all muslim nations need to step up to the plate and help these people. The US can only do so much because we are already stretched to the max. These rebel groups and the government need to go so that these people can live free and have an abundance of food water and shelter.

The rebel forces in Darfur may be the only chance they have to stabilize the area and bring enough safety to allow a return of the much needed aid groups. The Muslim nations have already made it very clear that they will support al Bashir in his continued efforts at total genocide in Darfur. Unfortunately, the UN troops must follow very clearly delineated guidelines and act more as a thin safe line then as true protectors. As usual with all human conflict the way to end bloodshed is more bloodshed. Imagine.

Too bad our military has been bogged down in Iraq for so many years, we may have been able to help these poor people.

a perfect example of the effects of OIL LUNACY--don't blame it janjaweed. It's just the carrot, much like hash was to the 'assassins'. You can't tell me history doesn't repeat itself---and do we eber learn from our mistakes?!?
Shame on us!
