Lynn, China( + Russia), have backed Sudan vis-a-vis not sending peacekeepers into the Sudan. The UN has pushed for a large peacekeeping force to go into Darfur( more than 20,000) but Sudanese President Bashir continues to block these efforts. And Russia and China via their Security Council seats at the UN have insisted that Bashir's wishes be adhered to (Bashir STOPPED the peacekeepers from going in by insisting on a series of loony conditions that cannot be met) The situation in Sudan continues to deteriorate.More than half a million slaughtered by the janjaweed,3 million refugees and no help in sight.The aid workers themselves are now being attacked and physically assaulted. They have no choice but to leave, leaving the refugees without food,water, or medical treatment.
