Darfur attacks continue

As I mentioned earlier this week, the genocide in Darfur is continuing unabated. Today, an unprecdented act of violence occurred when a rebel group ovveran a peacekeeping camp. Some reports are saying that as many as sixty peacekeepers were killed in the attack. Meanwhile, the UN has sent another team of negotiators to the Sudanese capital to dance the Macarena with General Al-Bashir, a man considered to be the most brutal dictator in the world. Some people are even afraid to call this genocide because it would imply that this whole thing is an intentional, systematic killing, and like I said earlier, many people find that more horrorfying to comprehend than the idea of an intertribal conflict that can be worked out through negotiatons.
