How Many Before Someone Acts?

UN Envoy monitoring the situation, American-proposed sanctions, talks, meanwhile 80,000 people have been murdered by pro-government militias in the Darfur region of Sudan. More than a million have been displaced. US Lawmakers have spoken out against Khartoum. John Kerry has said the activity there should be labeled as genocide.

Monitoring will accomplish nothing, sanctions are a containment method with no results when rulers could care less about the citizens, and talks can only work if both sides of the table wish to change something.

Is anyone doing anything substantive or have we not learned the lessons of Rwanda? Where are the "Peacekeeping Forces"? Stop contemplating the political consequences and DO something.

God Bless America.
