they are committing mass genocide essentially and creating more and more suffering refugees each and every day.

the Sudanese government has said that any attempt to interfere, whether by the UN or other coalition, will be an act of war and they will retaliate and possibly increase their attempts at killing.

Funny...Sudan tries to act big and bold yet at the same time they're trying to sell the world on their energy programs so that no one will put sanctions on them. They're taking advantage of the Iraq situation because they know US and other countries are strained from that. Real courageous bunch.
