Darfur: No Signs of Peace

From CNN...U.S. envoy shouts at Darfur official

Anyone keeping up with the atrocities in Darfur, knows full well the human devastation taking place. Men, women, and children are murdered every day. No place is safe.

As much as U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick is trying to uncover the truth behind why negotiatons aren't working, it's not helping. Why? No one wants to cooperate. A corrupt government and bands of thugs aren't going to negotiate. They would rather rape women, shoot each other, and starve children than work towards peace.

Sadly, I don't foresee a solution to this mess. Radical groups want all the power. They won't compromise. And just like the Sunnis and Shiites, words mean nothing. One says they'll work for peace while the other holds a gun to their head. It just doesn't work.

Let's pray God will show himself and end all this needless bloodshed. We need to have hope and faith in Him.
