Kofi Annan "deeply disturbed" and the UN is impotent.

Once again we see the UN's impotence and irrelevance. On Friday(1-28) the Sudanese Government, yes the GOVERNMENT OF SUDAN, bombed a village, Rahad Kabolong, in the Darfur region killing approximately 100 people.

What is the head of the UN, Kofi Annan's, reaction to this most recent act of blatantly genocidal violence? Well he's "deeply disturbed" by this and "calls on the Government of Sudan and the rebel movements in Darfur immediately to comply fully with their commitments under the ceasefire agreement and all relevant Security Council resolutions."

Isn't this what the UN is for, to stop violence of this kind?

And what if they don't stop Koif? Are you going to throw a very HARSHLY WORDED document at them? Ooooo That'll teach them a lesson they'll not soon forget. I say we send JDAMS over to their airfield where the aircraft used are housed.

And why is it that these stories always leave out the fact that this is MUSLIMS KILLING CHRISTIANS, so when you read "rebels" read that as Christians.

The war started because Sudan's government, headquartered in Khartoun and dominated by Arab muslims, a minority, had for almost half a century enslaved and islamised the people of Southern Sudan, who are mostly black (Negroid Nilotic people) and either Christians or animists

The region’s two main rebels groups [animists and Christians] accuse the government of supporting the Janjaweed militia in looting and burning non-Arab villages in the region.

Tens of thousands have been killed and nearly 2 million displaced in Darfur, where pro-government Arab militiamen known as the Janjaweed have attacked African villages in a campaign of burning, looting, raping and killing.
