Darfur Conflict, an over view by Varun Dixit


President Bush needs to take more passionate lead some aggressive charges against genocide, with elections just around the corner and with the focus of world around Iraq and other parts of Middle East; I believe we have completely ignored the worlds most suffered Place Darfur, Sudan. I was in gym working out the other day and believe me on CNN I saw the worlds most grueling and saddening video of Darfur where people are just dying of hunger, violence, oppression and I think just about everything. World has turned a blind eye and it high time now that we turn out full attention both in terms of spirit and resources onto this problem before it turns out to be the most horrific genocide of my life time. I believe what we are lacking is the will and attention to tackle that problem. I would request everyone that with the spirit of election in the air, I would really want our law makers to have Darfur on their agenda too so that this does not get unattended or unnoticed. Let's try to make sure that we don`t let hatred against us breed in Darfur, because if we don`t get to there rescue now, I am afraid it would be too late after a while. Those people would continue with their pain and agony but at the same time they would cultivate nothing but hatred against us for ignoring them in the times of their need. I was once told by my guru, that timing is really important in life, if you can not be present when people need you most than all the other gestures are nothing but hollow. This is a humble appeal to everyone, not to turn a blind eye, let`s not be ignorant and shows it to people of Darfur that we care and would do everything to be at their rescue. As mentioned by Frank Salvato "The situation is exacerbated by the fact that the Sudanese government is, to date, refusing to allow the United Nations to replace African Union troops, who are charged with keeping the peace, with UN peacekeeping troops". We need to address the political marginalization in the region in a better way. Perhaps, the reason for this perpetual conflict is the political discontentment. When identified correctly, the conflict in Darfur can be recognized as another front in the battle against Islam fascism and terrorism, a notion validated by an April 2006 statement by Osama bin Laden: "I call on the mujahedeen [Islamic fighters] and their supporters, especially in Sudan and the Arabian peninsula, to prepare for a long war against the crusaders and plunderers in western Sudan. Our goal is not defending the Khartoum government but [to] defend Islam, its land and its people." Perhaps a closer call is required for the world to stop and think about their actions. There is no such thing like a Perfect world, however things still need to be given a second thought before making it a final accomplishments. America's recent elections and the upcoming Presidential elections should procrastinate on our desired contemporary wars, and start adding a share to those who are suffering constantly in such miserable conditions.
