Since 2003, almost two million people have been displaced by a campaign of genocide undertaken by the Sudanese government against the people of Darfur. Estimates of those killed range from 80,000 to 400,000. Sudanese government troops and aircraft have supported bands of Janjaweed militia as they destroy villages in the Darfur region displacing and killing civilians by the thousands.
There are so many nasty places in the world and the US military cannot fix them all at once. The world is a nasty mess but bringing attention to the problems is something we can all do.
