Sudan Government Accused of Killing Civilians

UN Human Rights monitors have accused Sudan’s government of bombing civilians in northern Darfur, according to Yahoo News. Sudan has continued to refuse to allow 20,000 UN troops to replace the 7,000 poorly equipped African Union force in the region. An estimated 200,000 people have died in the Darfur conflict.

In North Darfur a soldier was convicted of raping an 11-year-old girl in North Darfur and was sentenced to five years in prison. Rapes by soldiers and militants have become a common feature of the Darfur conflict.

    Only 5 friggin’ years? And do you know that he’s not even in jail? Knowing the Sudanese court system very well from experience as I’ve documented in my blog, I’m more than sure he’s already out. If they were serious about sentencing him, he wouldn’t be alive. And 11-year old girl will feel worthless for the rest of her life and this adult male will go on feeling superior…I’m disgusted.

    I still don’t know why the Sudanese dumbass of a leader isn’t on trial for genocide.

    Imagine how long it would be if it were an American raped, he’d go to Guantanamo or something.

    Actually, no one would see him again…he’d first be flown around the 7 continents from CIA detention center to another…THEN comes Gitmo…and maybe after 5 decades…he can smell a court room.
