Actor George Clooney and a group of U.S. genocide scholars in the United States are warning that war crimes are taking place in an obscure conflict in Sudan's southern region.
Human rights advocates are issuing new warnings of genocide in Sudan, where Arab armies are accused of killing black African civilians in what an Episcopal bishop described as a "war of domination and eradication."
"As hundreds of thousands of innocents needlessly suffer, there is a moral imperative that the continual `diplomatic' talking, negotiating, pleading, and ultimately begging with leaders of such openly deceptive and destructive strategies must be replaced by concrete and effective action ... ."
"There is a point, we believe, when it should become self-evident that the continuation of talk, talk and more talk with a state that has engaged in serial crimes against humanity, genocidal-like actions, ethnic cleansing ... is all but a total waste of time," Totten wrote.
