In Sudan's Darfur region, human history repeats itself. The Janjaweed militia, an Arabic group supported by the Sudanese government, is systematically murdering the region's black tribes. The militia's goal is to exterminate all non-Arab citizens. So far, hundreds of thousands have been murdered. Two million more have been savagely forced from their homes. The refugees now face starvation and every single day, armed groups gang rape women and girls as young as four years old.

After United States policy in the region failed to stop the bloodshed, President Bush recently called for a doubling of international troops as the killing continues.
