...Darfur Part I Main aspects of conflict in Darfur The military conflicts in Darfur have been a major problem for Sudan, which is the country in which Darfur belongs, at least by the aspect of administration. Because of the importance and the complexity of the issue, US and UN have been called by the government of the state to participate actively in the improvement of the relationships between the militants of both parts (government and rebels). Regarding this case, it is noticed by the Africa Studies Centre (2007) that “Darfur, a former independent state in western Sudan, has been the scene of acerbic...

...Darfur, Sudan, the United States government needs to stop up and take action, and help the humanitarian crisis that is taking place in Darfur right now. The situation in Sudan is a complicated one, and one that will not easily be solved. Throughout the course of the years of violence, the situation has impacted the lives of millions of Darfurians. So far, "The ongoing devastation has killed an estimated 400,000 and displaced over 2.5 million Sudanese since February 2003", and the wide spread course of destruction is only going to continue unless someone steps in and takes action (Darfur, 2007). Just these facts only warrant intervention on the basis... The situation has only gotten worse as time has gone ...

...Darfur Summary Khartoum’s government has formed alliances with Janjaweed militia which is led by the ICC-indicted Alikoshen. The militia is torching villages, destroying them and killing people in broad daylight as the villagers watch. The militia has been denying access to journalists, aid workers, and U.N. peacekeepers so that there is no evidence of the killings and destructions going on. This has led to the UN and the media reporting that the war in Darfur is over which is far from the truth. The government incorporates the Janjaweed militia into the army or pays them to act as paramilitary for fear of a potential backlash. They are given complete impunity for looting and destruction...

Evidence suggests that the attacks and killings are due largely to the struggle for control over natural resources. Moreover, the imposition of Islamic law upon tribes whose customs are to use beer in their spiritual rituals, which is in direct violation of the Islamic prohibition of alcohol, have resulted in the brutal treatment of Sudanese. The penalties imposed include, but are not limited to amputation, hanging and crucifixion. Though the penalties are seemingly barbaric, conjuring moral questions as to whether the Sudanese...
