It should simply astonish all who contemplate with moral clarity an indisputable fact: the National Islamic Front/National Congress Party regime in Khartoum continues to order its military forces to bomb and shell civilians—relentlessly and on a vast scale—with total international impunity. Could this indifference occur anywhere else in the world? Why is there no outcry commensurate with what we are hearing daily about Syria? Bombing and shelling of civilians in South Kordofan, Blue Nile, and Darfur have taken many times the number of lives that even high-end estimates suggest for Bashar Assad’s brutal crackdown. These Sudanese lives are no less valuable than any other human lives: why does the world turn away from this most fundamental truth?
