For as far as I know, the amount of funding is up to the individual member states of the EU so it's kind of silly to blame "Europeans" for Italy's low contributions. I do agree though, that the West in general has been slacking in Sudan, but I guess that's what you get when there's little to gain politically and economically.

Wait a minute, did you just say that Italy's the largest donor with 1.2 million? That can't be right; The Netherlands alone have just increased their contributions to 30 million euros.

Not one of the top three threads in FYM right now are about Bush.

But go ahead and keep playing the victim.

The UN sucks!!!
Just look at Rwanda.
And the US sucks as well...
An "Arab Militia" is who is causing this????
This would be Bush's golden opportunity to go after real Arab terrorists instead of wasting time in Iraq.
Shame.

The UN is such a nice kicking dog. We underfund it and then complain that it's ineffective. It has like a $4 billion budget.

And the EU, and the Janjawed, and the Sudanese gov't, and the African Union, and ultimately, each and everyone of us who have refused to hold our governments accountable to keep our word of "never again."
How long....?

Well, since CANADA, France and Germany have no troops on the ground in Iraq and have done almost nothing to help the situation there, perhaps they should be trying to do something in Sudan?
