SUDAN GENOCIDE: ARE WE TOO LATE?

These are a few of the links posted at My Newz 'N Ideas, with a huge "tip of the hat" to Rosemary. She has posted extensively on the atrocious ongoing genocide, alerting me to a rally in NYC that I was unable to make. I'm posting links to some of the stories, but I recommend you read her site (linked HERE and above) for the full scope and context of what's going on there. She posts about 9 links, including a great Washington Post piece, and reports from the BBC and Reuters. These, and the others, are dismaying stories, but well worth reading. We in the U.S. need to know more about what's going on in the rest of the world, and remember our pledge at the end of WW II:

"NEVER AGAIN."

We have not followed through on that pledge for not only the Sudanese, but many peoples under the worst oppression seen since Hitler around the world. Hopefully the Bush Doctorine will change the course of history all over the world. It's a race of time to save the people of Darfur; they are far from the front in the new fight for freedom in the Middle East, but are intimately involved in that battle.
