Sudan's government has been killing people in the Darfur region for years now, and up to 200,000 have been murdered. When George Bush went to the UN to do something, he was stymied by the entire world who react with one collective yawn.
The Europeans? What are they doing? Sitting on their asses, as usual.
They have decided not to impose sanctions, or to do something substantial, but they have threatened sanctions if something doesn't happen.
They may also get really mad.
EU threatens Sudan with sanctions over Darfur
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union threatened Sudan with sanctions on Monday if it refused to allow U.N. peacekeepers into war-torn Darfur, but rights groups and analysts said the warning was not enough to stop the killings.
Raising strong concerns about the "intolerable" situation in Sudan's remote west, EU foreign ministers urged other donors to provide funding for the struggling African Union mission there, while the EU executive said it had no more cash to support it.
Yep, the Euro-peons "raised strong concerns." They might do something. They might get concerned.
Hell, they might even get pissed off. Let's see what they do when the death toll hits half a million.
