§224 Darfur againSeptember 18, 2008
What strikes me with this is not the headline – that a Darfur issue has reached US congress. And it’s not the weapon embargo on Sudan either. Neither is it the fact that Russia and China keeps exporting conventional weapons despite the embargo. What strikes me most is the fact that a Darfur blog needs to explain why a “marginal” story likes this reaches their headlines:
It started firing. People began screaming. The shooting continued until the houses were burning. The woman was burned on her legs. Her body had a bullet hole that went from her chest to her back.”
How come the world does nothing as this goes on?? Can you imagine the media outrage if this had been israelis shooting on palestinians??
