Enough in Darfur already………. Enough

27 Mar

Though it has garnered the concern and condemnation
of governments worldwide and triggered
unprecedented grassroots activism in the United
States, the crisis in Darfur continues to intensify. In
response to what both the legislative and executive
branches of the U.S. government have repeatedly called
genocide, the gulf between rhetoric and action on the
part of the Bush administration is profound. What is
driving U.S. policy and that of the broader international
community is a strategy of constructive engagement
with the Khartoum regime driven either by considerations
of counterterrorism (United States), commercial
connections (China, Russia, and some other Asian and
European countries), and solidarity (Arab League).

    Thought you might be interested in this piece which refutes Mahmood Mamdani’s claim that there is no genocide taking place in Darfur. Also check the link to the London Review of Books which has further comments on the Mamdani article.
