Complexity of the violence in Darfur

After Rush Limbaugh said that Liberals were pushing to get us into Darfur because the people of Darfur were Black, I thought that I would try and find a good video to post on the pain and suffering of a large group of people. First of all, Rush is a racist. Secondly, he spoke of Darfur as if it was a country. It is not. It is a region of the Sudan. Thirdly, as the world’s only superpower we have to lead the world. We must be a force for good. Not a force for oil interests. Killing hundreds of thousands of men, women and children, causing the starvation of tens of thousands more is something that a civilized nation shouldn’t stand for. Finally, I don’t know of any Blacks in the US who are going to vote Democratic because of any policies in Africa. But Rush knows this and lies to this caller any way. He is painting a picture for his listeners and damn the facts or the reality.
