Genocide in Africa...

Since 2003, the systematic killings of civilians in the Darfur region of Sudan have shocked the world's conscience. Hundreds of thousands of internally displaced civilians continue to flood the refugee camps.

It seems as if the world community could be doing more to stop this terrible tragedy. I know the United Nations are in there...but they are facing huge obstacles from the Sudanese government.
