Darfur update

26 March 2008 –Attacks against aid workers in western Sudan have reached unprecedented levels, jeopardizing vital relief operations in the war-wracked Darfur region, the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator said today.
This disgusts me.  Whatever happened to regard for human life?  And read the snippet below.
More than 200,000 people have been killed in the past five years in Darfur and at least 2.2 million others forced to flee their homes because of the fighting, the inter-tribal clashes and the attacks by bandits.
Five years.  The US would be in Darfur if not for another war we started five years ago.
