Right on...These are the elected representatives that stand for something. Any information as to why they were arrested ? What law did they break ? There are more people killed in Darfur than any place in the world. The aid that is sent is rerouted thru the hands of corrupt public officials.

The conflict in Darfour has been going on for a millenia. The only reason the U.S cares about it now is because Sudan has discovered an ocean of oil, and they have signed a contract to send it all to China. America plans to invade, install a puppet regime, and srcap the contract so that they can have all the oil.

Is that why the UK has been all a twitter about it for the past few years?

Not only is it about Oil but there is also an 11,000 square mile lake underneath Darfur.
So its about oil yes, and water too.

I wonder how Cloontang is doing over there.
He sure has made alot of spooky friends lately hasn't he.
Guess he met some of them while doing the movie Syriana, where he portrayed Robert Baer.

These ships that keep getting pirated on their way to Kenya are all carrying weapons that get sent to Sudanese terrorists
.
Some of the weapons go to the terrorists in the South of Sudan and some of them go the terrorists in Darfur called Justice and Equality Movement.

The U.S. is trying to Balkanize Sudan.
They want to carve it up the same way they did Serbia.

They beat you over the head with the word "Darfur" the same way they did the word "Kosovo" this is how countries are broken up.
Notice they never refer to Darfur as Sudan, like they never reffered to Kosovo as Serbia.

Oh and if you haven't noticed yet, this case is a good example of how the spooks use celebrities to propagandize to the bewildered herd.

They're using Mia Farrow, and George Cloontang on this one.

And I remember when they were using Brad Pitt and Richard Gere against China.

Can anybody think of any other examples?

I listen to the BBC. For years now, the UK has been doing the "beating".

Congress is beginning to respond to their student constituencies that have been lobbying on this issue to no avail ...till recently.

The US and the UK don't care about the killing in Darfur. There's only one thing they are interested in.
