No kidding….As if we didn’t know China’s culpability all along.

30 Jan

Really quick note.
In the event you haven’t read this WAPO editorial,

China and Sudan
President Hu can bring relief to Darfur — if he wants to

Of course China can stop this, as we have stated here over and over again, the fact they have not is the reason we support boycotting the Beijing Olympics. Anyone person or nation seeing this travesty for what it is would be a hypocrite to do otherwise.

    As long as it is not in the news the killing can go on in Sudan. Few people in Sweden know about the situation in Darfur, Sudan and very few know about the fact that China has any power to stop this genocide and that China has oil interests in Sudan. The criis of Darfur should be given much more news coverage. I know that in Sweden and in Spain this crisis is hardly given any news coverage.

    I have to agree with Lena. The Darfur genocide is rarely in the news in the United States either. When it is, it tends to be a 30 second clip of starving women and children before the station switches back to ‘news’ from Hollywood. Although those of us who pay attention to the news from Darfur may know about China’s influence in Sudan, most of the public does not, which means that they can’t take action.

    A travesty all around.

    I’m surprised and saddened to hear that about Sweden, and as far as the US is concerned, I am around people who are acutely aware of it so when I come upon people who do not know it still surprises me, that most people do not care because they are too worried about the next generation iPod does not surprise me but that they claim no knowledge of the situation always shocks me.
