Sudanese Troops Attack and Destroy Camp in Darfur Gripping a pair of pliers, a doctor pried a bullet from Amina Kharim's swollen and bleeding left arm. Eight hours earlier, at dawn Tuesday, she had been asleep in a shelter of grass and sticks when government soldiers and police stormed into this camp of 5,000 in South Darfur. Residents and relief workers said the troops burned shelters, smashed water pipes, fired tear gas and beat people as they fled half-asleep from their huts. Within five hours, they said, the camp was reduced to ashes and about 100 residents were crammed into the makeshift clinic, seeking first aid for gunshot wounds, burns and bruises. "I saw the military coming and heard some shots. Then I felt pain and saw my arm bleeding. Now, my heart is burning with anger," said Kharim, 26, gripping her arm to steady it while the doctor worked in the shade of the mud-and-straw clinic. "There was a lot of blood, and then they started burning my hut. The world is not doing enough to protect us. We are so tired. Can someone please come help us?" With violence still raging in Darfur's 20-month conflict between African rebels and pro-government forces, aid workers and camp residents said they feared Tuesday's pre-dawn assault was the beginning of a campaign to force displaced people back to villages where they could be vulnerable to further attack by Arab militias known as the Janjaweed.

African forces are supposed to be handling this but it doesn't look like their doing much does it?
No, they have convicted Israel in the International World Court for the "crime against humanity" of building a wall to keep out terrorists.
The Useless Nation is worried about monitoring votes in America.
I'm sure it's just a bunch of bored teenagers playing pranks. Everybody knows that the BUsh administration was blowing this out of proportion, right?/sarcasm
Sorry.. $@*% them. Let Sweden, Denmark, France, Holland and the rest of Europe clean up Africa. After all it's them that's pissed in it for the last 300 years.
"African forces are supposed to be handling this"
What African forces!! What "forces" there are are armed with sticks and stones, while the government thugs are mowing down anyone black and non-Islamic!! This is the most disturbing situation and NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING TO SAVE THESE POOR SOULS!!!
Yes, it is a nuisance being killed, but let's not exaggerate.
Right talk is...
The Christians are being slaughtered by Islanic terrorists and crude production reached an estimated 345,000 barrels per day in June 2004. They are sitting on 150 million barrels of oil.
"They are sitting on 150 million barrels of oil. "
Oh, I knew there had to be reason to justify our involvement there, when it happens.
