Genocide in Darfur

The continuing genocide in Darfur is not generating outrage among the American public, which as Blue Goldfish points out, may be why Washington has been tepid in its response. This is the worst man-made catastrophe in the world right now. It isn’t necessarily an American problem (although I believe we should do what we can), but something needs to be done. How about the Arab nations sending troops to stop the killing by their Muslim brethren. Wouldn't that be a shock.

But the Arab nations will not send in troops and we all know it. Just as it took the United States to stop the genocide against Muslim people in the Balkins, so it will take the United States - the PEOPLE of the United States - to stop the genocide in the Sudan. It will not come from Africa, nore from the Arab nations, nor from Europe (France has troops "stationed" at the Sudanese border), nor from Canada. If we - do nothing - nothing will be done. Period. And we - knowing what we know about the rest of the world (how many countries have France or Germany liberated in the last - oh lest's say, 1,000 years?)- have no excuse. What can we do? Blog, about it, for one thing. Contact our elected officials for another. Pray, yes. What else?
