This Darfuri boy reminds me of me during the civil war in Nigeria as I was once missing from our refugee camp. My mother had lost three children, she was nursing a year old baby and the oldest son my elder brother had gone to join the Biafran scouts called "Boys Company" used in spying on our enemies (The Nigerian Armed Forces).
The latest report on Darfur in the Washington Post of today was written by two US Senators calling for more US interventions in Darfur http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/12/26/AR2005122600547.html
(see the previous post below) and a popular blog http://www.independentconservative.com/ shared my views on why Sudan should have been invaded by the US instead of Iraq.
The Unicef reports that over a million children are in danger of dying in Sudan since the Sudanese Arab terrorists have prevented emergency Aid from reaching the refugee camps where these helpless children are suffering and dying everyday from malnutrition, diseases and violence.
UNICEF correspondent Chris Niles reports on child malnutrition in Darfur:
Malnutrition rates in the last year have been halved among children living in camps which provide food, shelter and medical care. But an estimated 2.5 million people are not receiving any help because they live in isolated and dangerous areas. Children in these groups are dying from malnutrition and other preventable diseases.
I will keep you posted.
