You would think that after the Rwandan episode that the UN would be strongly urging to expedite actions to halt these terrible atrocities. What do they do? drive by drop off a few sacks of flour & water and say "good luck, be back next week" We're talking genocide occuring right now and this has to be stopped.

When I hear stuff like this, I wonder if there is any hope for the human race, if there is any good in us. Sure, we do good things, but when such barbaric acts come to light, it seems like it erases any goodwill we, as the human race, try to achieve.

I'm wondering why we (United States) continues to turn a deaf ear and a blind eye where Africa is concerned? Uganda for instance receives genetically modified food from us which is not really fit to eat and drugs to fight disease that are way over their expiration date. Why do we stand by and do nothing in places like Rwanda and Sudan? Is it because those countries have nothing like oil that we want? I think there is a larger issue here.
Washington has enlisted Libya's help in getting aid to western Sudan where thousands of people have been driven from their homes by war and rampaging militias, the U.S. national security adviser said yesterday.
National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said the administration of President George W. Bush has been active in bringing attention to the crisis in Darfur, and Secretary of State Colin Powell's scheduled trip to Sudan this week will further highlight the "really difficult situation there.
"We're working with others, with the Libyans, to try to get a third route for supplies to get in to Darfur," she told "Fox News Sunday," providing no further details regarding the Libyan role.
