Have you heard about the Rwandan Genocide? Do you recall what happened in Rwanda in 1994?
Perhaps, you don't exactly remember what happened during the genocide that lasted approx. 100 days but you probably remember what happened after that. . What do you recall most about it? Most people remember what the international community did, absolutely nothing.
333 1/3 lives were terminated every single hour, 800,000 were killed. All this happened while the world stood around with its hands in its pockets.
So, not a lot of action was taken to stop the Rwandan Genocide but currently, Darfur awareness is all over the place. It seems that the whole world is concerned about Darfur. I read about it everywhere I turn and its the first thing that pops up when you hear the word "Sudan". The first question I am asked when I mention I'm from the Sudan is "what do you think about Darfur " or "what is going on in Darfur ".
I've read a lot of articles about Darfur and the actions that should be taken there, some of them mentioned the Rwandan Genocide by saying" we allowed this to happen, we should try harder to stop Darfur". Wait a minute, Do you think that the international community feels guilty after all? Do they think that by helping out in Darfur, they might make-up for their idleness in Rwanda?
The UN troops and the "Operation Turquoise" didn't stop the genocide from taking place. The soldiers failed to stop the mass murders. Do you think that the UN troops will stop Darfur or secure the region? If you think that by sending the UN troops....Darfur will be stopped and people will be safe again. Then PLEASE dont send any soldiers, why risk their lives? Just send a bunch of housewives and they will do the same job perfectly! They can do whatever they want, pull out the American troops from Iraq and take them to Darfur, send hundreds of European soldiers and even send more African Union troops. By doing so, Are they going to solve the problem?
I dont think our beloved president will allow the troops inside the country, if he wanted to stop Darfur then he would've stopped it. Do you think he cares? He definitly didnt show any signs of remorse yet!
