Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
DougR - Here is the point.

Saddam wasn't bombing the people of Iraq. What is the U.S. doing there? Bombing the people of Iraq! The people of Iraq hated Saddam but they hate the U.S. even more.

Now maybe if the U.S. directed their energy to more humanitarian efforts, they might once again be called the good guys.

From the article linked above:

"The United Nations has called Darfur the world's worst humanitarian crisis, saying the conflict has claimed 70,000 lives since March, mostly through disease and hunger.

A U.N. report released last Wednesday said the violence has affected 2 million people and mentioned strong indications of war crimes "on a large and systematic scale."
