The U.N. mission in Sudan is calling this dusty town of straw huts the "hungriest place on earth," and scenes of skeletal children and elderly people who are too weak to even walk tell of impending tragedy.

Horrible. There will not be peace in this word till hunger ends. Hunger is immoral.

We in the developed countries throw enough food away daily to keep these children fed. We have to keep the food aid comming and increase it - everyone needs to help otherwise these children will never get better.
I also get the feeling that we are fighting a losing battle unless these warring factions lay down their arms and help.

It's so sad when there is enough food in the world for everyone. It seems that money is the root of all evil, for many, it's more important than a human life. The gozillionaires need to look at these pics several times a day, have videos of real life starvation. Some how a difference has to be made, this is not acceptable when there is plenty for everyone.
