Armed men attack UN workers in Darfur

VOANews.com is reporting armed men are attacking UN workers in Darfur. This comes despite Sudanese pledges to stop the violence in Darfur. In the same report, UN spokeswoman Marie Okabe claims fighting is continuing between Arab militiamen and two Sudanese rebel groups.

Perhaps it is time to acknowledge that Sudan's actions in Darfur are genocide. Maybe then, the world can begin to take serious action to do something that it has never done since genocide was first defined in 1948, stop one from occuring by using military intervention. The African Union is willing to do it. All they need is the support of the US and other nations in the UN through money and possibly logisitics.
