Finally

"I promise this to the people of Darfur: the United States will not avert our eyes from a crisis that challenges the conscience of the world." President George W. Bush.

From the AP:

The sanctions target government-run companies involved in Sudan's oil industry, and three individuals, including a rebel leader suspected of being involved in the violence in Darfur.

"For too long the people of Darfur have suffered at the hands of a government that is complicit in the bombing, murder and rape of innocent civilians," the president said. "My administration has called these actions by their rightful name: genocide.

"The world has a responsibility to put an end to it," Bush said.

From me: Better late than never.
