Bush talks about Darfur

Update: Think Progress has a great post on this subject.   The US Ambassador to Sudan tells us that the purpose of these sanctions isn’t to punish Sudan but instead to send a message.

How about too little too late? Yes, almost anything is better than nothing but the Bush administration has been giving lip service to Sadan for several years now while thousands continue to die. If the Bush administration really wanted to liberate a group of people who really would have greeted us a liberators they would have gone to Sadan and stopped the ethnic killings.

Don Cheadle and George Clooney just threw a party at the Cannes film festival and raised something like $9 million for the victims of Darfur.

It looks like the world community is going to do something about terrible problem in Darfur.  Will it be enough?  Doubt it.

MySpace producing concerts for Sudan

From CNN:

The online hangout MySpace.com will organize 20 concerts featuring bands promoted on its site as part of a campaign to raise awareness and money for humanitarian relief in Sudan.

The site, which grew in popularity thanks to its early adoption by emerging bands and their fans, has in recent months taken a more active role in promoting social causes, such as environmental awareness and voter registration.

“The crisis in Darfur is a global concern and as a global community we have a responsibility to take action,” Chris DeWolfe, MySpace’s chief executive, said in a statement. “MySpace’s reach gives us an extraordinary opportunity to spread the word and empower individuals to help address the horrors in Darfur.”

This is very nice but what about New Orleans and our own Gulf Coast?   They still need help down there.
