Pandora


Nic Robertson recently spent time in Darfur, and got some air time last week about the current conditions there. 

First is a report on the women in the refugee camps being raped. (And a note for the Government Deny-Everything Stooge: the fact that a society has no word for "rape" says far more about the way women are treated there than it does about the virtue of the men...)

Next, he accompanies a UN worker to a village near the border with Chad, and explains the dynamics of the Arab/African fighting. If you don't understand the why behind what is happening in Darfur, this is the clip to watch:

Finally, Nic discusses the charges of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity leveled against the president of Sudan, as well as how and why such charges can be made against him:

While in Damascus recently, Cal Perry filmed a piece about an Iraqi woman who fled Baghdad in order to raise her autistic son somewhere to get better treatment and education:

Finally, the end piece from yesterday's Fareed Zakaria GPS and the question it poses: do we as a country still have the drive and focus to take on an incredible challenge and see it through?

I really need to hear that this morning.
It's like Dorothy in the Wizzard of OZ. The answer to getting back to Kansas was there all the time.

The answer to our energy problems are right here we have to open our eyes and see them.
