Darfur Update

As usual, Arthur Chrenkoff provides a solid, link-filled roundup:

Since the start of the Darfur conflict (although it's pretty obscene to call something this one-sided a conflict), about 30,000 non-Muslim Sudanese are estimated to have been killed by the Arab militias; about 1 million have been displaced from their homes by the ethnic cleansers and a further 2 million people are in desperate need of food (other reports put the number killed at 50,000 and displaced at 1.2 million).

As Arthur notes, the US and our allies will undoubtedly be accused of neoconservative imperialism should we attempt to intervene and stop the genocide.
