Bush Finally Authorizes $300 Million in Sudan Aid

Not to diminish the crisis in southern Asia but The United Nations has described violence in Sudan's western Darfur region as the world's worst humanitarian crisis. A U.N. report issued earlier last month said 2.3 million people in the region need aid. However, the world and the Bush Regime have been slow to act.

Earlier this year Secretary of State Powel finally declared the situation in Darfur Genocide. In November The House passed the $300 million bill which the senate passed December 7, 04. The world was appalled when it took the Bush Regime days to respond to the south Asian crisis however, we now have a unique opportunity since the Sudanese government and the Rebels have signed a treaty. Lt. Gen. Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir, Sudan's president, was on hand for Friday's signing ceremony, as was John Garang, the head of the Sudan People's Liberation Army. Under the agreement, he will soon become one of Mr. Bashir's vice presidents. Even though congress has passed the bill and the President has signed it, the check has not been written. In addition, the state department should get behind the UN to do the one thing they seem to have some prowess at and monitor the Peace. Now that their may be a move toward peace in the region it is time to strike while the iron is hot Write the damn check and get the blue helmets in on the ground
