  1. Hi,I highly appreciate you post.I'd like to share few point with you
    There IS a crisis in Darfur, but it is not genocide. It is a conflict over water resources between tribal forces which has been manipulated by former colonialists Britain and France. There is a war going on among 20 rebel factions (with most of their leaders living well in London and Paris) and the government.Thanks you so much!!!
