We wouldn't want to make Sudan's government uncomfortable


Sudan's government has escaped condemnation by the UN Human Rights Commission. Something terrible is happening, but nobody is at fault, apparently. Can't we all get along?

The BBC reports:

The United Nations Human Rights Commission has approved by consensus a resolution condemning human rights violations in Sudan.
The resolution, which was agreed after long negotiation, does not condemn the Sudanese government by name for atrocities committed in Darfur.

It does, however, call on all parties to immediately end all violence.

At least 180,000 people have died and two million fled their homes, in what some say is genocide against non—Arabs.

The Sudan government denies accusations that it armed the Janjaweed militias blamed for the worst atrocities.
