"Supporters of our intervention in Sudan argue that this is a clear-cut case of Sudan’s Christian minority being oppressed and massacred by the Arab majority in the Darfur region. It is interesting that the CIA’s World Factbook states that Sudan’s Christians, who make up five percent of the population, are concentrated in the south of the country. Darfur is a region in the mid-western part of Sudan. So I wonder about this very simplistic characterization of the conflict."I wonder about it also, especially because anyone with any knowledge at all about Darfur understands that all the parties involved: the residents of Darfur, the Janjaweed, and the Khartoum regime are all Muslim.

Why does it always seem that when we hear urgent clamor for the United States to intervene, oil or some other valuable commodity just happens to be present?
