DARFUR UPDATE: Pictures of the genocide there, from children who survived:
Ala' drew a scene he had witnessed in which a rebel soldier was shot in the genitals by a Janjaweed. Ali, a teacher in the refugee camp, explained that rebels were killed that way to emasculate them. "They [the Janjaweed] know what they are doing," he said.
It remains a disgrace that so little is being done on this subject. There are some efforts to get NATO involved, but France is expected to object. Perhaps we should send the rebels some Special Forces trainers and a whole lot of guns? We could ship them direct from Saddam's armories . . . .
