Save Darfur

Much has been said about Sudan these days. The title "Save Darfur" is unfortunately to be read in a lot of media outlets. Much has been said, there is a crisis, but has anything been done to end the crisis? Sudan is another genocide and every so often genocides occur in this world for reasons I cannot comprehend. And what is genocide except the killing of a population of people, I cannot understand. Is it a holocaust, a war, and for what reason if any at all? This is a definition for Wikipedia itself. I do not even know the exact story of the genocide in Sudan, only that there are genocide atrocities going on right now in the Darfur region and millions of people are losing their lives and being displaced from their homes. Wikipedia says the government mal military militia militant are attacking the tribes. The BBC News says it is the story of the Janjaweed. The ones protecting them are their very oppressors. This colloquialism term is derived from "Jihadist Mujahideen Riding a Horse." The term "Janjaweed" was synonymous with bandit, as these horse or camel borne fighters were known to swoop in on farms and steal livestock and raid villages. Does this mean the state sponsored government is solely responsible for the loss of life? And this is all confusing to me. In Sudan, this time the Devil comes on horseback with armed hor-semen. Is this written in prophecy somewhere also as other genocides in other countries in the history of the time? And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Peace on earth. Save Darfur.
