"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.
