The sudanese Govt,with the goodwill of China,powers the Arab militiamen that is performing ethnic cleansing against the Black minorities in the Dafur Region of Sudan.UN should ignore China and vote for a sanction against Sudan's Oil Export. We dont care about China's $3b Oil investment is Sudan.This Genocide must stop!

I have questions:

1) Are you proposing UN intervention?

2) Are any indiginous groups calling for a peace keep force?

3) If the answer to 2 is yes, then who are they and what is there history?

Yes, I am proposing UN intervention. Just recently,Nigeria and Rwanda agreed to send troops to dafur region, but these are not purely going to play a combatant role in dafur.UN and the WEST should declare whats going on in DAFUR as GENOCIDE.

Please, what should be the role of UN in an aggression of that sort displayed against a race?
Do you support the kind of ethnic cleansing going on in DAFUR?Common....

I am not arguing with you. I am asking for background information. Intervention is a serious business, don't you think? It is expensive in money and in lives, so... I thought some information would be of use from those who wish to make a decision about how they feel about intervention based on good background information.

You sound like someone who knows some things so, I thought you might be able to help out by answering some questions.

Absolutely true James!

We can't let tens of thousands of people be slaughtered while the UN just twiddles thier thumbs and wastes time! Didn't we learn anything from Rwanda?

P.S. How are the strikes going on back in Nigeria.

Greeny,
Thanks for understanding the point i was making.Well, way back here in Nigeria the strike has stopped.We Hope that Government would accelerate efforts to help the poor masses.The impact of the increase in fuel is too harsh on Nigerians.

I don't understand your point, because I don't understand the issues iternal to Sudan. I've read some reports, but some more concrete information is necessary. The only major politician who has called what is going on in the Sudan a genocide is George Bush, and he just spent an entire two years telling us that Iraq was about to get the A-bomb, and he was clearly lying.

I was hoping you could supply more information.
