Genocide in the Sudan

Never again...again and again and again. Once again the United Nations is standing silent in the face of Genocide. I don't know what we can do about this. The United States probably lacks the resources to intervene. The 'noble' nations of Europe who are not engaged in Iraq are silent and unwilling to step up. The African nations in the region are claiming that any action against the govenment in Khartoum would violate Sudan's sovereignty and is therefore unacceptable. So the masacres will go on. Eventually, as the country continues to fall apart, its violence will be exported until it reaches the top of the list of problem states. Then we will have to try and build something up from the ashes of a nation even more battered than it currently is. Oh...and the extra good news:

Then, to compound the shame of the United Nations, on May 4, guess who was re-elected to a three-year term on the U.N. Human Rights Commission? The newly re-approved member, seated while the killings continued, is the Sudanese government in Khartoum.
