Obvious Crimes against Humanity are Happening without Response

Eric Reeves wrote a compelling piece for the South Sudan News Agency in which he details the profound failure of the international community to address the situation in Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile, the very same reason that I felt compelled to create Help Nuba. No excuse is a good one. The cause of the slaughter in South Kordofan is not the rebellion against the genocidal regime of Omar Bashir in Khartoum. The genocidal regime is the cause of the resistance. Attacks on non-Arab and non-Arabist Africans including  Muslims in the southern part of Sudan have gone on and will go on regardless of whether or not the resistance continues. What will happen should the resistance be unable to continue to combat the regime in Khartoum is that the slaughter will worsen and instead of talking about the possibility of genocide occurring in the Nuba Mountains, we will be mourning in the aftermath of its occurrence.
