UN Cuts Food & Aid to War Torn Darfur, Sudan

Help is needed-NOW. The UN has once again failed in its responsibility to assist the people of Darfur, Sudan. Please read this exerpt, and then go to the link above.
Meanwhile, the EU has given the government two months to "improve the security situation" or face sanctions. Get real--two months? At a calculated loss of life of 10,000 persons per month, this is another twenty thousand people dead. In any case the Sudanese FM Ismail rejected the threat. Ismail also bragged that the US effort against Sudan is "paralyzed"--which is of course true. As reported by the Chinese online news service, Sudan's ally.
Please call Colin Powell at (202) 647-4000 and let him know this is unacceptable. Also, call the offices of the Senate Republican and Democrat Chair and Co-Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee at (877) 762-8762 and ask for the Chairs of this committee. A long distance # is (202) 224-4651. In the House, we have the International Relations Committee at (877) 762-8762 and (202) 225-5021. There is a sub-committee for Africa at (202) 226-7812. Get to work! Have a great day my faithful warriors.
