News - The Quiet War expands,,2057971,00.html

Excerpt from the article:

The wave of killing in the heart of Africa has its roots in 2003 in Darfur,
where ethnic African tribes staged a revolt against Khartoum, after years of
neglect and discrimination. In its response, the Sudanese government mobilised
and armed Arab herders in raiding parties.

I find it interesting that the people who are trying their hardest to bring the Darfur genocide to the forefront of action by the worlds leaders, don't look for the most simple explanation for the lack of action and attention to the problem. It's actually quite simple, and it's the same reason why the AIDS projects haven't had a powerful push from TPTB, they actually want it to continue. When leaders in positions of power do not work to stop suffering it isn't because they lack empathy, it's an intentional act.
