Kamala Sarup: Darfur's War I Condemn

Darfur's War I Condemn

By Kamala Sarup

Darfur's war I condemn because they are all terrorising the people, women and children. Not all men and women are eligible to receive state benefits in Darfur. Yes I don't like the war, what I want is a peaceful political movement to change the nations into peaceful path. Everything has returned to violence in Sudan. I think it made difficult for people their to survive. My big question to Sudanese government and the rebels now is, will you love your nation?

Warrior groups or the governments wanted people to work without peace, and that is still an unrealistic alternative. There must be a peaceful election. Sudanese people could vote for any politician, regardless of the other issues. That could includes everyone standing for peaceful election. Yes, it is true, the leaders never pay into people's Security. Peace benefits were never implemented for people of their rare elevation in society.

People always think, they should have a special peace plan. So, many years they are suffering. In more recent years, no leaders in Sudan has felt the need to change it.

Peace is always good if only one small change were made by the both parties.

When I look at Darfur in the Sudan which has been the source of the world's largest genocidal campaign since Rwanda under the Clinton Administration. Darfur is, perhaps, the perfect example of how all the world's problems can never be solved.

I think is that Darfur is a particular piece of real estate which has bad destiny. I say this because in briefly researching the area, I found that it has a peculiar geographic layout that shows up in old maps of Africa dating back to the mid 1600s. It sticks out like a sore thumb, and the early European explorers marked and mapped it as such.

That got me curious about it as a geopolitical phenomenon. A little more research revealed that Darfur sits smack on the fault line between Arab and Black Africa. In other words, like a conflict, Darfur is one of those places that has seen so much evil over the years as two different cultures repeatedly clashed that it has literally sucked it right into the ground. Darfur, in short, is bad news.

"That neither explains nor condones the actions of the Bahir butchery that has been going on for the last several years. Mounted horsemen of Arabic origin, pond scum mostly, get high on khat and other substances and go out and kill mostly peaceful African farmers and settlers. I say mostly because some of the African men have banded together to fight off these state-sanctioned depredations. So it's armed gang versus armed gang, much like Somalia was a decade and half a go".Said John Schrab.
